Email Content Filter - How it works

Symantec.cloud Email Image Control Service employs multi-layered filtering technologies and state-of-the-art image signaturing to give you complete control over all images contained in your email communications. Image composition analysis harnesses techniques for facial recognition, body positioning and texture and flesh tone analysis to generate results that are processed by a complex scoring system to block or pass images. This approach is especially effective at detecting pornographic images.

How MessageLabs Hosted Image Control Works

  • All incoming and outgoing emails are directed through the Symantec.cloud platform, hosted in secure data centres worldwide
  • Images embedded in or attached to an email are scanned to assess their compliance with your acceptable use policy, local rules and specific requirements
  • Any email which triggers a rule is subjected to a range of possible actions, such as 'block/delete' and 'redirect to administrator'
  • All email which doesn't trigger a rule is delivered as usual
  • Reports summarising data collected and actions taken by the service can be generated easily
