Block or Allow Email by Country (GeoBlocking)

Block or allow email by country – ‘GeoBlocking’ allows you to restrict or allow email from specific destinations based on IP or Country…

The Spambrella spam and malware/virus detection module, part of our Email Threat Protection service provides the most powerful approach to detecting and eliminating spam and malicious payloads in any language. Spambrella also now includes a number of GeoBlocking filter features suitable for any business Internationally.

Immediate benefits to GeoBlocking

  • Reduce the business threat landscape (threat vector)
  • Totally eliminate unwanted email from any country
  • Auto quarantine and check daily/weekly/monthly

Spambrella is a premium email security service for SMEs and Enterprise organizations. Our services allow Administrators to identify the country’s location of the inbound email domain-wide. GeoBlocking has become an essential feature for organizations of all sizes that wish to reduce geographic threat vectors to their organization. 

Geoblocking Filter

With Spambrella’s extensive data reports, you can choose to allow or block inbound email by country name or IP address. GeoBlocking a country or blocking multiple countries with our Country IP Database could not be easier. You can also alert internal referees when an email from particular geographic locations is quarantined so it can be reviewed with trained eyes prior to quarantine release.

It’s known that most spam (particularly malware such as keyloggers) originates overseas (Estonia, Moldavia, China, Poland, etc.) By blocking destinations with Spambrella from most of the undeveloped world, I’ve successfully reduced spam by 95 percent in the past year!

The threat landscape has changed and with it so have our processes. Spambrella now provides corporations globally with the GeoBlocking tools they need to filter email traffic effectively. Never has it been so easy to block email by country.

Spambrella recently introduced means of metering/throttling spam aggressiveness for users. It is now possible to relax spam filters for some users whilst others may prefer something more aggressive.

Users can now run a relaxed spam filtering throttle but administrators at domain level can allow/block by country or IP. The balance has solved many issues with inbound email.

The service is great at filtering bad email as well as junk email out while allowing clean email though. I have used a few other options over the years and this is the best I have found. Clients sometimes have trouble configuring their settings to how they want it to be. Or tag emails as approved when they shouldn't and need IT interaction to resolve. Maybe just ease of use or having a more clear way for clients to resolve basics on their own.

Used the software for: 2+ years - 5/5 Overall
With an ever overloaded department, and with cybersecurity skills shortage getting worse securing the I.T infrastructure.

Offloading the task of e-mail filtering to Spambrella has dramatically helped in the department's performance. The only drawback in our case is that the service is hosted outside of our territory and thus out of the legal jurisdiction.

It doesn't require an arcane knowledge to set the Spam filtering up, the guides are straight to the point and support staff are very helpful. Functionality wise, in short: we do not get spammed. Thanks to Spambrella.

Archiving wise, the new solution is easy to use, searches well and fast and is by far the cheapest we could find at the time. Ten year retention rocks!

Easy to onboard my customers from another spam filtering system. Very fast and haven't had any downtime in the 9 months since I have moved to Spambrella. When I have had to use support, responses where quick. I had to move all my customers from another filtering system with little notice. After I moved my customers I realised how bad the old solution I used was. Contact with Sales and Support always been professional

Allen B., Review via Gartner Capterra

I found spambrella to be easy to set up and has dramatically reduced the number of spam emails hitting our inboxes. It was easy to 'train' the software to release any genuine emails that were caught or add any spam that was not picked up.

Within a couple of weeks of use virtually no spam arrived to our mailboxes. Spam and phishing emails are a growing problem for everyone I'm sure. I now get a very low incidence of spam.

David F., Review via Gartner Capterra

Robust, versatile, and reliable...
The reliability of the service and the level of protection that it provides. My spam levels immediately dropped to near zero.

There are almost no false positives. And I'm easily able to customize the level of protection with whitelists, blacklists, and sensitivity settings. I'm also a big fan of the antivirus and URL scanning features.
