Open source is the most effective method for developing secure and reliable software on the planet. Because it relies on a transparent exchange of information, technology, and collaborative development, open source is inherently more secure by design. Contrary to proprietary “black box” software, open-source methodology allows the innovative online “hive mind” to quickly find bugs, develop groundbreaking software, and the technologies that can quickly counter online threats.
Real-time Threat Protection Solution
Because Guardian Digital’s solutions are built on our advanced cloud platform that combines open-source technologies with the security expertise of our engineers, the result is a system that updates rapidly and learns over time to protect your business email from advanced and persistent threats. Our worldwide network of systems works cohesively to collect billions of data points using big data analytics, our own algorithms, and machine learning to update systems with the latest real-time information. This reduces the exposure to zero-day threats as well as the largest spam campaigns around the globe.
Open-source development also allows Guardian Digital to customize your email security platform to your specific needs. Better yet, it allows us to do this without jeopardizing your bottom line.
