Spam & Virus Filtering (SVF™) is COMPUTERmaster’s solution for preventing spam, phishing scams, viruses and other internet pollution from impacting email operations.

While SVF is best known for its accuracy and low maintenance, equally remarkable is its ease of implementation. The following six steps outline how the SVF™ solution acts on client email to determine whether hand-off to the client email system or if the offsite quarantine is more suitable.

At the heart of the service is a proprietary Spam detection system that utilizes more than 60 types of filtering techniques. In addition to sophisticated Spam identification analytics, SVF™ employs multiple anti-virus engines as well as proprietary detection systems that rid incoming email of worms, viruses, phishing attempts and other protocol-based vulnerabilities.

Step 1. Perimeter Protection

SVF™ intercepts messages before they reach the clients infrastructure to prevent high impact attacks such as Denial of Service (DOS) and Directory Harvesting programs from stealing email processing resources.

Step 2. Redundant Server Set

SVF™ uses an array of redundant servers to ensure that at least one server will always be available to deliver mail. Each server set is equipped with COMPUTERmaster’s proprietary Spam detection system that utilizes more than 1100 filters.

Step 3. Virus Scanning

In today’s world, viruses are the favorite tool used by spammers to enable the mass delivery of spam. COMPUTERmaster uses four anti-virus engines which are constantly updated. Emails that fail any of the anti-virus tests are routed to the Virus Quarantine for review by the system administrators.

Step 4. SpamTrap™

The COMPUTERmaster Spam & Virus Filtering system uses the results from a blend of leading spam identification techniques to determine whether a message is legit or belongs in the Spam Quarantine. Some of these tests include internal and external RBL checks, routing analysis, signature and heuristic content inspection and reputation review.
