Email anti-spam technology is used to prevent malicious content from being delivered via email. These tools scan email messages, content, and attachments for potential threats and then filter or block suspicious messages from being delivered. Administrators can whitelist approved content or senders while also blacklisting or blocking communications from suspicious parties. Companies use email anti-spam tools to prevent their employees from being misled through phishing attacks or compromising local networks when downloading malware. They also prevent employees from delivering information to misidentified users, saving the business from potential breaches.
