Key Benefits of Spambrella Email Protection Services for the Education sector

Comprehensive, Advanced Threat Protection

Protect your students, professors, and staff against all forms of cyberattacks, including modern targeted attacks such as spear phishing and credential attacks as well as traditional threats such as spam and viruses.

Stop advanced threats that are capable of evading even the most sophisticated signature- and reputation-based defenses before they can give attackers and cybercriminals a foothold in your network.

Spambrella™ provides the industry’s leading Secure Email service to block known threats – and Spambrella™ Targeted Attack Protection is designed to identify suspicious email messages containing malicious URLs or malicious email attachments before their payloads can be delivered. Spambrella™ provides an integrated defense against advanced email-borne threats that complements your existing network security controls.

Powerful, transparent email encryption

Provide email encryption that’s transparent to end users, but backed by a strong policy engine that ensures all sensitive data is protected before it leaves the organization.

Spambrella™ Encryption also makes sure that all encrypted messages are branded to your university’s requirements.

Recipients of Spambrella™ encrypted emails follow a few simple steps to authenticate and access their messages. No pre-registration or exchange of encryption keys is required to use Spambrella™ Encryption; ad-hoc email encryption is fully supported.

Automatic Data Loss Prevention

Ensure sensitive information — from research results to health records — is protected from unauthorized or accidental transmission.

Spambrella™ can detect sensitive data within a file—even if the file format has been changed. For example, with Spambrella™ solutions you can detect a simple paragraph from a Microsoft Word document that had been copied into the body of an email, distributed file, or social media post. Spambrella™ can then route the offending communication to IT, HR, or elsewhere appropriately.

Key Benefits of Spambrella Compliance Products for Education

Automated, Transparent Policy Enforcement

Ensure that both inbound and outbound email adhere to external regulations and internal policy transparently, without dependence on user action.

Spambrella™ provides multilayered filtering to accurately detect sensitive information within an email or attachment, such as credit card numbers, customer loyalty numbers, and employee records.

Once detected, Spambrella™ can be configured to warn the user about acceptable use policies, and the user can self-remediate these violations – or administrative or compliance officers can be notified appropriately.

Seamless, policy-driven encryption

Spambrella™ can automatically detect and encrypt communications containing regulated or restricted information of students, professors, and administrators, as well as providing administrators with access to real time reports and message tracing functionality to monitor the outbound mail stream for a compromised desktop, laptop, or account and giving compliance officers access to data loss incidents through an easy-to-use interface that provides custom reporting.

Related Case Studies

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.

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.

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

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.

Brian M., 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.
