Does MailRoute protect me from Ransomware?
Yes. Ransomware is a type of malware designed to infect and block access to a computer, until a sum of money has been paid. MailRoute provides full-spectrum spam and virus filtering, to mitigate all malicious threats, including Ransomware, against your email's security and your hardware.
MailRoute's team has focused exclusively on email protection for 20 years. We built the first email filtering service (FrontBridge) and sold it to Microsoft in 2005. Since then, we've built MailRoute to be the most trusted host of email security services. Email threat protection is our core competency and our sole focus.
