New Dell Email Security 8.2 with Cyren AV Delivers Multi-Layer Threat Protection

The foundation of email threat protection has long been anti-virus technology and IP reputation databases. Threat research teams across the globe are hard at work analyzing email, identifying spam and malware, and building anti-virus and IP reputation database libraries to help combat threats. Experts agree that for best threat protection, email security solutions should not rely on a single anti-virus engine or reputation database, but should integrate multiple sources to maximize security effectiveness. 

To deliver best-in-class email threat protection, Dell SonicWALL Email Security 8.2 includes multiple anti-virus technologies, including Dell SonicWALL Global Response Intelligent Defense (GRID) Anti-Virus, Dell SonicWALL Time Zero, and premium anti-virus technologies, including McAfee, Kaspersky, and now, Cyren Anti-Virus.

Cyren AV is now included with Dell Hosted Email Security and, for customers that prefer an on-prem solution, available with Email Security appliance and software release 8.2, when purchased with the Total Secure subscription service. The Dell SonicWALL Email Security offers seamless set-up for IT administrators and provides immediate results.

“Since replacing our Barracuda appliance with Dell SonicWALL, we achieved a 95 percent reduction in spam reaching user mailboxes," said Gary Walker, network administrator, City of Alexandria.

With Dell Email Security solutions, our GRID Network performs rigorous testing and evaluation of millions of emails every day, and then reapplies this constantly updated analysis to provide exceptional spam-blocking results and anti-virus and anti-spyware protection. Dell SonicWALL Time Zero Virus Protection uses predictive and responsive technologies to protect organizations from virus infections before anti-virus signature updates are available. Suspect emails are identified and immediately quarantined, safeguarding the network from the time a virus outbreak occurs until the time an anti-virus signature update is available. Moreover, premium anti-virus technology from industry-leading, anti-virus partners including McAfee, Kaspersky, and Cyren provides an additional layer of anti-virus protection, resulting in protection superior to that provided by solutions that rely on a single anti-virus technology. In addition to the multi-layer threat protection and ease of use, the Dell SonicWALL solution is affordable and provides low TCO.

“With Dell SonicWALL, we have easily saved $30,000, and will save an additional $15,000 each year,” said Walker.
