If you surf the web, you’re familiar with media sites and merchants who request your email address in exchange for access to content or a great deal. Input your email on enough websites, and you’re soon faced with the daily chore of separating real email from the flood of spam that never seems to stop. But while spam is annoying, it’s relatively harmless. The true danger comes from an illegal process known as phishing, where fraudulent emails dressed up to look like trusted sources induce unsuspecting users to take some action, such as clicking on a link, which they will soon regret. Phishing attacks, as we discuss below, can be injurious to targeted individuals, companies and computer networks.
Fortunately, KMF Technologies can help you filter out spam and warn you about suspicious emails you’ll probably want to delete. When we manage your email exchange, the flow runs through a filtering service first before reaching your inbox. The filtering solution eliminates about 99 percent of all spam and blocks phishing attempts by quarantining suspect emails. Each day, you receive a message listing the emails in quarantine. If you know it’s safe, you then have the option to release the email from quarantine. You can even approve the sender so that future emails from that source flow through the filter and reach you directly.
