It is a well known fact that while Email is a valuable tool to any business that it has also become the main cause in the distribution of viruses, worms and other malware. Further to this is the real threat of spyware that can affect performance on computers, phishing schemes that can cheat employees into giving up valuable information, such as passwords, using social engineering and the timeconsuming and costly effect of spam to a corporate network. This paper will analyse and show the effect of a successful implementation of Email filtering software in a large corporation, together with some of the major findings discovered so far.
