Trend ScanMail for Domino

Superior mail server security. Lower administration costs.


Most mail server security solutions rely on periodic updates and threat databases—they don’t detect malicious URLs or targeted attacks such as advanced persistent threats (APTs). These hidden threats usually enter the network through highly targeted emails, making the messaging gateway and mail server the right place to stop them.

Trend ScanMail™ for Domino stops highly targeted email attacks, such as spear phishing, by using document exploit detection, enhanced web reputation, and sandboxing as part of a custom APT defense. ScanMail also blocks traditional threats with reputation technology and correlated global threat intelligence from Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ cloud-based security.

As a native Domino server application, ScanMail Suite is optimised for high performance and ease of use. Time saving features like central management, template-based data loss prevention (DLP), role-based access, and Domino optimisations enable ScanMail to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) by 35 percent according to analyst research.

Targeted attacks need a network defence

Trend Micro messaging security products provide protection against targeted attacks with enhanced web reputation, a new detection engine, and a new threat analysis appliance that blocks highly targeted email attacks by using sandbox execution analysis. Integration of these components provides a network defence that enables you to detect, analyse, adapt, and respond to targeted attacks.


Scanmail Suite components

ScanMail Suite has been enriched with built-in protections against targeted attacks

  • Enhanced web reputation blocks emails with malicious URLs in the message body or in attachments. It is powered by the Smart Protection Network which correlates threat information with big data analytics and predictive technology
  • Advanced Threat Scan Engine detects advanced malware in Adobe® PDF, Microsoft® Office®, and other document formats using static and heuristic logic to detect known and zero-day exploits. It also scans the Domino mail store for targeted threats that may have entered before protection was available. When integrated with Deep Discovery Analyser, it quarantines suspicious attachments for automatic sandbox execution analysis, which occurs inline, without impacting the delivery of the majority of messages.

Deep Discovery Analyser components (additional purchase)

Deep Discovery Analyser is an appliance that provides sandboxing, network-wide log collection, and deep threat analysis in a unified intelligence platform that is the heart of Trend Micro’s Network Defence.

  • Custom Threat Analysis provides automatic in-depth simulation analysis of potentially malicious attachments, including executables and common office documents, in a secure sandbox environment. It allows customers to create and analyse multiple customised target images that precisely match their host environments.
  • Custom Threat Intelligence analyses logs of Trend Micro products and third-party solutions combined with Trend Micro threat intelligence to provide in-depth insights for risk-based incident assessment, containment, and remediation.
  • Adaptive Security Updates issue custom security updates for adaptive protection and remediation by ScanMail, other Trend Micro products, and third-party security at various layers.
