It Saves Time
Many spammers know exactly how to address a reader, and they even display your name within the subject line and salutation in an attempt to trick you into opening their emails. When you bump into this type of message, it may appear to be from somebody you know, until you open it and realize it is only spam. Anti-spam and virus services filter out emails from marketers, adult porn sites, and fraudsters. This reduces the size of your inbox and greatly increases your overall productivity.
It Saves Money
Although everyone knows that spam emails are a nuisance and very time-consuming, most people have never sat down to figure out how much money these annoying, unwanted emails actually waste. Follow the example to see just how much money your company invests in spam each year:
- You have 100 employees.
- There are 250 workdays per year for each of those workers.
- Every employee gets paid an average of $20.00 per hour.
- Each employee receives an average of 10 spam messages per day.
- Each person spends 5 seconds for each message by waiting to receive it, review it, and then delete it. (That's 50 seconds per day per employee, or 1.4 hours total!)
The bottom line is that you, the employer, spend almost $7,000 a year (about $28 daily) paying your employees to sort through all those spam emails. Combining the lost time for all 100 workers, almost 44 days of productivity are lost every year! In this scenario, a company pays one employee per year to check spam mail for every 580 people employed. Your business can't afford to not have a spam filtering service!
It Reduces IT Costs
By reducing bandwidth usage, mail server CPU cycles, and message storage capacities, anti-spam and virus filtering increases the lifetime of your mail server. This reduces the time and money spent on maintenance or new hardware, and it reduces the amount of energy used by the IT infrastructure, giving you a lower utility bill.
In addition, our email filtering solutions do not require you to purchase software or take the time to install updates and patches. All functions of the email protection system are completed outside your network. Easy administration tools allow your IT manager to quickly configure the system and view reports.
