The following items are located outside of your network:

  • Anti-virus/spam filtering completed by an off-site provider


Pros and Cons of Using External Filtering



  • Features can vary widely depending on the provider. This can give your company many options to customize the filtering to fit your needs.
  • Frees up your local bandwidth and server resources. This is especially advantageous for small businesses, since it reduces overhead.
  • No need to perform updates and troubleshoot hardware or software issues.
  • Your current provider may not provide options for customization (e.g. set filtering levels, view quarantined messages, quickly identify and deliver false positives).
