What is Inbound Email Filtering?
How it Works

How it Works

  • Our multi-layered protection strategy begins at the connection stage, where we leverage IP address, geolocation, and ASN-type information to conduct reputation analysis. This meticulous process ensures that our systems are fortified with a robust first line of defense against potential threats.
  • During the preliminary stage of email processing, which is known as the before-queue stage, we perform a series of meticulous checks. These checks include scrutinizing sender and recipient information and enforcing Sender Policy Framework (SPF) controls. At this stage, we implement user-specific policies to enable the tailored handling of external mail rather than internal mail within the organization.
  • Once we fully acquire the mail content at the queue stage, we proceed with content analysis, scanning, and attachment scanning for potential threats. We conduct the extraction of URLs and subsequent reputation analysis and scanning at this stage. Additionally, we perform static and dynamic (sandbox) checks. We may implement policies that further scan the mail for specific requirements or take measures to modify the mail's content, eliminate any threats, and so on.
  • The post-queue state begins once the delivery action for the mail has been determined, such as delivering it, trashing it, quarantining it, or notifying the recipient. This stage involves various tasks such as archiving, logging, and running webhooks.
