These models are constantly updated and delivered to customers to ensure their messaging infrastructures stay ahead of the latest spam attacks. Proofpoint examines every aspect of incoming messages, from the sender’s IP address, to the message envelope, headers, and structure, and finally the content and formatting of the message’s attachments and the message itself. At any given time, more than one million possible attributes—representing both content and structural components—may be taken into consideration. A typical message may trigger more than 300 MLX attributes.

As an MSP Kingdom provides best of breed packaged services to its clients. Spambrella was brought in to replace both our premium and SMB email security/filter options. Spambrella is quick and simple to set up and administer. The Proofpoint connection is valuable and enables us to quickly deploy policy based encryption which is becoming popular. Overall we cannot fault Spambrella as a service or as a team.

Tina McDonaldson, Kingdom Services

Spambrella rescued us and our customers from uncertain times with Postini/Google and now McAfee. As an MSP we have relied upon Spambrella and their support for just over 2 years. Our experience has been positive and we have overcome obstacles using their support team for anything email related (sometimes out of their scope). We recommend Spambrella to all of our customers. Thanks!

With over 4k end user email users it was top priority that our migration was stable and quick. Spambrella proved to be the perfect choice with hands on technical assistance. We worked late nights migrating our customers from another email security vendor that increased their pricing without prior warning. We are very happy with Spambrella and will continue to recommend this service.
