It’s a fact that around 80 percent of email traffic – equivalent to 6.5 billion messages a day – is junk mail or spam.
Increasingly, hackers and spammers have taken to using networks of compromised PCs infected by malware (software designed to damage computer systems) to distribute spam email.
The use of these networks (often called botnets) is designed to make it harder to filter email traffic for junk mail simply by blocking rogue email addresses linked to spammers.
We regard the control of spam and viruses as an essential part of our service to you. So essential, that we deploy a highly effective three-stage process as standard.
