There are many benefits to email. So many in fact, that it has become one of the most essential forms of business communication.

What are managed email security services?
The key to understanding what this type of service is, is to think of it as outsourcing. There is little doubt that companies need to secure their email but many small to medium businesses lack the staff and expertise to actually do this in reality. One way to secure your email is to simply outsource it to your IT partner.
An IT partner can work with you to establish and secure your email, by intercepting all email destined for your email addresses or domain. Many IT specialists employ advanced scanning software that looks for malicious software, images or even content that contains keywords deemed unsafe. The software then filters out these emails and sends the safe ones to your email servers or inbox.
These services typically allow you to establish and manage filters and black or white lists (black lists are a list of words or email addresses that you do not want to receive emails from). Because the companies that run these services are usually security oriented, they can work with you to ensure that emails coming in, and going out of your organization are secure, and free from malicious content.
