Email fraud and phishing are two of the most dangerous security threats delivered in email, often resulting in identity theft, financial losses and compromised security. Email forgery is practically impossible to detect by reading email content because graphic images and content are often copied from legitimate email messages.
Identity theft attacks are typically initiated through email by scammers pretending to be well-known companies. These messages encourage you to click on links within the message to visit a website that may ask for account numbers, passwords and other personal information.
Tragically, many people believe they are protected from phishing scams and email fraud by their antivirus, firewall, anti-spam and anti-spyware software. In fact, these software products do not prevent email fraud and many victims using these security products are ironically at increased risk because they have been lulled into a false sense of security.
CA® Anti-Spam incorporates a sender authentication framework that makes it possible for the software to technically verify that an email message was received from the sender indicated on the message itself. Using SPF (Sender Policy Framework), a standard domain authentication scheme, CA Anti-Spam protects you from email fraud and so-called phishing scams and identity theft by visually alerting you to potentially dangerous messages.
Stay safe. CA Anti-Spam helps you deal with people you know — and now helps you know exactly who you're dealing with.
CA Anti-Spam places two different stamps on email messages to help you decide if messages may have been forged or sent fraudulently. Combined with CA Anti-Spam's ability to keep all email out of your inbox unless it is sent by someone you know, the additional authentication information provides you with the best protection available against fraud and forgery.
