By continuously identifying the servers and networks used by spammers, bot-herders and cybercriminals, Spamhaus helps to protect more than 3 billion email inboxes worldwide. Many of the world’s largest internet service providers rely on Spamhaus’ threat intelligence to block harmful email traffic and protect their customers.
Spamhaus Technology™ provides datafeeds of Spamhaus block lists. These block lists remove the vast majority of spam from incoming mailstreams by rejecting malicious IP traffic at edge routers, before it can enter your network.
The combined efforts of the information security community, international law enforcement agencies and ISPs have succeeded in taking down prolific botnets, such Grum, Simda and Dridex. In spite of these successes, botnets controlling millions of compromised computers continue to blight the internet by pumping out billions of malicious spam emails. Smartphones and the internet of things are contributing to the number of spamming devices at the disposal of bot-herders.
Spamhaus Technology datafeeds help enterprises, service providers and network operators to turn back the tide by stopping malicious emails from entering networks at the SMTP gateway and blocking bad IP traffic at the edge router: significantly reducing the impact of spam and adding another layer to your network defences.
