Virus Filtering


Protect your PC from virus-infected E-mail!!



The proliferation of the Internet brings with it an increased threat of virus infection. Internet viruses propagate via various avenues including E-mail, Web sites and file sharing. The Internet community needs to take a multipronged approach when defending itself against these threats. The introduction of Rakuten Broadband Premium's Virus Filtering service tackles viruses transmitted through E-mail by filtering incoming and outgoing E-mail on the Rakuten Broadband Premium mail server. This is executed before it reaches a customers personal computer.
