Protect your computer and files with Advanced Spam & Virus Filtering
Midwest Captions is a Katharion Partner,
offering email security to protect you against fast-moving
If your firm is starting to
receive excessive amounts of spam, you may want to consider our new
outsourced spam filtering system. The filtering solution we provide with
your server fees is called Spamassassin. Spamassassin is quite
effective; however the updates are released only several times per year.
As a Katharion Service Provider, Midwest Captions offers an outsourced solution
through a company that specializes in spam and virus filtering. Katharion is recognized as a
leading managed email security service and has engineers updating their
filters every hour. Katharion’s anti-virus definitions are updated every
five minutes. These frequent updates can protect an organization against
fast-moving viruses that may not be caught with an internal anti-virus
The service sends a Digest out each day that, in one Email, summarizes
all of the spam and any viruses that have been caught in the previous 24
hours. The User can review this Email; and, if they find a message that
should not have been trapped, they click on a link and it is immediately
delivered to their Inbox. There is also a control panel available which
allows users to review current email in the spam quarantine.
Many companies are using this type of service to better protect their
computers. The additional cost for the new service is based on the
number of users. Our clients that use this service have found it very
effective for both spam and virus filtering. The time that users save is
Midwest Captions recommends that our clients additionally use their own
personal virus protection software since viruses may be transferred by
various means--they are not limited to email transmissions. That said,
over 90% of viruses are transmitted through email. As viruses have
become more prevalent and more damaging, organizations are increasingly
adopting a layer of protection at their Internet gateway (as Katharion
provides) as an additional defense.
