Continue reading to find out the meaning of some common internet safety abbreviations which you may encounter.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a service which allows users to browse the internet safely and securely even when using public WI-FI. Maintaining your privacy online, it creates an encrypted space for your data, protecting your identity by concealing your IP address. VPNs are increasingly common for security-conscious internet users, and have experienced an increase in popularity over the last few years. Able to cleverly conceal your information and sensitive data, investing in a VPN may be a smart idea in 2022.

ISP And ASP (Internet Service Provider/Application Service Provider)

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and Application Service Providers (ASPs) are the titles given to vendors who provide their  service to business customers across a large network, renting applications to business clients over the web including custom software.  Many ISPs who favour open-source solutions choose MailCleaner anti-spam as the interface allows a user to manage thousands of domains per server.

AV (Anti-Virus)

AV (Anti-Virus) software is the terminology used for any software package which aims to  prevent malicious content from affecting a computer. Coming in many forms, either free or available to purchase, some devices will come pre-packaged with AV software, though this may expire after a certain period or be unsatisfactory for your needs. Malware can easily become prominent on a PC, so choosing an appropriate AV software package alongside MailCleaner is recommended.

SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is the terminology used for standard internet mail transfers. MailCleaner’s SMTP callout feature allows a user to immediately reject all messages sent to invalid addresses within a domain, enhancing the security restrictions linked to a domain.

DLP (Data Loss Prevention)

An information security strategy which protects corporate data, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is a set of tools and set processes to follow which  ensure sensitive data is not lost, misused, or accessed by unauthorised users.
