Approximately 2% of all incoming email messages are viruses. EasyCom Email leads the email hosting industry with strong, multi-stage, server-level virus detection. Our antivirus protection begins with several important pre-scanning stages, followed by a continuously updated virus scanning stage. More than 100,000 virus-infected emails are blocked by our systems every day. During new virus outbreaks, this number can spike to over 1 million per day. The virus scanning system has been designed to handle these extreme spikes for extended periods of time, scanning every single email without mail delivery delays.
Email Antivirus Process
Our antivirus system scans all inbound and outbound emails using a multi-stage process. The process is broken down into the following four stages:
Stage 1: Restricted Attachments
Stage 2: Normalization
Stage 3: Decompression
Stage 4: Virus Scan
Virus protection is included at no additional cost with all EasyCom Email and Microsoft Hosted Exchange accounts.
