"An Additional Layer Of Security Against Volume-Based And Targeted Cyber Threats"

"We use FortiMail primarily to filter each and every email that comes in or goes out of our organization. It also provides us with an additional layer of security against volume based and targeted cyber attacks in addition to helping us secure and protect sensitive corporate data. In order to stop targeted attacks, irrelevant bulk emails, phishing attacks, etc, we make best use of features like outbreak protection, sandbox analysis, impersonation detection and many more advanced features that compliment FortiMail's anti-spam and anti-malware capabilities. We are also able to prevent the loss of sensitive corporate data with FortiMails' identity-based email encryption and archiving. What's even better is that we can easily integrate FortiMail with other third party components that help us improve our approach towards security by sharing IoCs across a seamless security fabric. Lastly, FortiMail is very simple and easy to deploy and become proficient with because it doesn't demand sound technical know-how to fine tune and troubleshoot."
