Email is mission critical to all businesses and organizations, retaining a unique position as the most common communication tool across the internet. However its widespread use makes it a key channel for cyber criminals to take advantage of your data, your money and your networks. For more than a decade we have been helping organizations protect against such activity through our reputation-based threat intelligence.
Email is at the forefront of cyber, and all that can be done to help end users – invisibly and easily – must of course be done. Information networks must be reliable, and the information provided by Spamhaus will help build the first line of defense. Easily and cost-effectively.
Spamhaus might be familiar to many, but commercial exploitation of the services still partly on a rather early stage in the Finnish market. It should be noted that the products and services are not limited to only email. Spamhaus also operates in DNS services and BGP routers. In addition, Spamhaus provides security teams, forensics teams or for the curious only – a search engine that can dig into domain information.
