Award-winning Anti-Spam Solution Delivers +99% Industry-leading Protection

Engate has pioneered a permanent solution to the spam crisis by eliminating the ability of spammers to hide their true identity. Engate’s patented network profiling anti-spam solution delivers industry-leading protection by preemptively identifying the spammer at the source and stopping all variations of spam at the network level before the message is transmitted to the targeted email server. Spammers cannot penetrate Engate's protocol layer technology because it uses proprietary techniques, logic tests and source information that cannot be forged, circumvented or adapted by a spammer’s present and future tactics. Engate profiles entire offending networks to detect protocol fraud and determines the legitimacy of a sender’s message before transmission to the private network by uniquely segregating legitimate mail servers from all other network hosts. This innovative approach empowers organizations to proactively identify incoming mail from illegitimate sources and intelligently reject illicit connections outside the network – before it has a chance to compromise IT resources and employee’s valuable time. Engate’s unique approach and leading database of network profiles gives organizations the fastest response to compromised hosts and new botnets the instant they emerge, ensuring preemptive and immediate protection against any creative tactic that may arise now or in the future. This unique profiling functionality results in the highest level of performance in the market with +99% accuracy and virtually no false positives. Essentially it is the last anti-spam product companies will need to buy.
