Known to take over unsuspecting computers and utilize its resources to send out spam messages, zombie-type attacks use the domain name of the victimized computers ISP to send messages that appear as if they are coming directly from the ISP, making it very difficult for customary anti-spam solutions to block them.

Guardian Digital Secure Mail Suite goes above and beyond standard anti-spam solutions with its “outbound purification? technology. This latest innovation allows the system to filter outbound mail to ensure all messages exiting through the server are legitimate and not products of a “zombie? system. Administrators can either choose to discard all messages marked as spam or quarantine and log messages to locate internal offenders and dispose of the problem from the source.
