Secure MX Service

IIJA’s Secure MX offers a complete lineup of email security measures, including spam filter and virus check on incoming and outgoing mails. This service is provided as an ASP gateway model that makes no changes to the customer’s current email system, and also allows the customer to not worry about incurring operational labor or taking risks with their assets.

Service Summary

Service Feature

  • Spam Mail Filter
    The highly-acclaimed McAfee spam filter quarantines spam emails, including Spam emails containing Japanese text. In terms of advanced precision and convenience, this service is considered to have the best track record in the Japanese market.
  • Anti-Virus
    In addition to the anti-virus engine, standard features include automatic updates that respond to the latest virus outbreaks, further reducing the risk of viruses entering your email system.
  • Route Encryption
    One of the more important features of this service is the encryption of traffic between email servers on the Internet, which prevents the risk of intercepting email transmissions. The encryption is handled by the service without the user having to perform any special tasks.
  • Sender Authentication
    The Sender Authentication feature ensures a crucial level of verification with respect to Internet email. IIJ led the industry in offering sender authentication.
  • Mail Suspension
    The Fail-Safe Mail Cache feature allows incoming email to be temporarily stored in the Secure SMX gateway in case the customer’s email system goes down due to routine maintenance or unexpected trouble.
