    Default The Power of Threat Prevention and Spam Blocker!!

    I'm running a few test cases and came across something awesome I just had to share.

    I've configured Threat Prevention between the WAN and one of my current antispam appliances (Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway) and let it run for an hour. I've deliberately not enabled SSL Inspector and Spam Blocker (yet) as I wanted to see the raw effect of Threat Prevention.

    On the antispam appliance directly connected to the WAN, 68.96% of all mails processed are spam.

    On the antispam appliance with the Untangle appliance in front of it, only 20.87% of all mails processed are spam.

    On top of that, it blocks 2.500+ connections per hour!! I have not seen anything that impressive for YEARS.

    Everyone should own an Untangle imo...

    The power of a live reputation engine in action...

    She's wound up a little too tight, and this approach leaves you with out SMTP logs on your side but... with results like that I'm not sure you should care!
