Why vSMTP ?

While optimizing IT resources becomes an increasing challenge, computer attacks remain a constant problem.

Every day, over 300 billion emails are sent and received in the world. Billions of attachments are processed, analyzed and delivered, contributing to the increase in greenhouse gas emissions.
