Clear up all your Email Security Appliance doubts. Questions related to Security are welcome.
Email threats continue to present security challenges for all organizations. Cisco Email Security Appliance (ESA) is an email security gateway introduced by Cisco to provide a solution to these difficult challenges. Protect your email against today's threats and vulnerabilities, including: spam, phishing, compromised business email (BEC), malware, data loss, and ransomware, as well as the option to encrypt your most important information. And with the new normal, data is considered the most important asset of a company and a person, therefore a broad understanding of the ESA pipeline will provide us with the skills and tools to know how our email is processed and what they are the best setup practices.

Good morning,

Are there any settings we can consider in our emails to match specific content or file types?

Hi Sandrine,

Yes, within the feature: Content filters, you can select the conditions that best suit the email traffic you receive and you can take actions for incoming and outgoing mail for "file types" or "file extensions", you can configure features very specific like: ".docx, .exe,, zip, etc."

I share the link of the guide with more specific and descriptive information regarding the configuration of content filters.
