Policy Rules

You can create the following types of rules to enforce your organization’s antivirus and other security goals:

  • Content filtering rules: Evaluates message contents to prevent undesirable content from being delivered to recipients and remove active content (such as macros) from Microsoft Office or PDF file attachments

  • DLP rules: Prevents the transmission of digital assets through email messages

  • Antispam rules: Scans messages for spam or graymail

  • Threat protection rules: Scans messages for viruses and other malware such as spyware and worms

Optionally, you can copy a predefined policy rule and edit the copy to create a new policy rule.
