Non Intrusive Learning Pattern (NILP)

NILP is a revolutionary technology from MicroWorld that works on the principles of Artificial Intelligence to employ an adaptive mechanism in Spam and Phishing Control.



Mails from unknown senders are rejected temporarily, as most spamming servers do not try to send the same mail, in case of a first time rejection. In case the mail is legitimate, the originating server re-attempts to send the mail, which is then accepted.


Auto-generated Spam Whitelist

When a local user sends a mail to an email address, the system automatically adds that ID to the Spam Whitelist.



Clustering provides load balancing by distributing mails to multiple computers for scanning.


Relay Control

This module helps stops spammers from using your organization's IP addresses to send spam.
