    Our Verdict

    SpamTitan Antivirus is available in three flavors: Gateway, Cloud, and Private Cloud. Each comes with antivirus capabilities, but different levels of control and support. Crucially, as its name suggests, this application focuses on spam protection. 

    If you’re looking for a dedicated web-based antivirus service, then this may be the software for you. Otherwise, for a more all-round antivirus, you might want to stick with McAfee, Norton, or Intego.


    • Extremely detailed spam protection
    • Seamless integration
    • Perfect for companies


    • Only for email
    • Can’t be used to scan your personal computer
    • Dashboard is confusing
    • Upgraded versions need to be physically installed on-site
    • Not worthwhile for individual use

    Overview of SpamTitan

    SpamTitan was formed in 2006, partnering at the same time with Kasperky Lab to create a built-in antivirus engine. Since 90% of emails are spam, all the services focus on protecting business via email. 

    This makes their antivirus packages both niche-specific as well as dedicated and powerful. It also means the narrow focus isn’t ideal for everybody, particularly individuals who only need antivirus for home use.

    How to Set It Up and Uninstall

    The installation method depends on which package you choose. SpamTitan Gateway requires a technician to visit your premises to install the boutique software, otherwise:

    1. Enter your personal details, then select either SpamTitan Cloud or Private Cloud.
    2. You’ll then receive log-in instructions in your provided email inbox.
    3. Follow these instructions to access the online email antivirus.

    As neither the Cloud nor Private Cloud option involves installing anything on your own computer, there’s nothing to uninstall. If you sign up for the Gateway package, however, you’ll need a certified technician to come and uninstall the software.


    Each of the three antivirus packages comes with a free 30-day trial, which doesn’t affect the features or capabilities.

    Privacy and Security

    Privacy - SpamTitan’s sandboxing and phishing capabilities mean you never have to worry about anyone getting their hands on your personal data.

    Security - Multiple levels of antivirus protection mean your emails remain secure, including outbound attachments.

    Performance and Protection

    The software constantly monitors your emails, so you don’t need to worry about configuring a scan yourself. Everything you send or receive is protected by various layers of antivirus.

    Malware Protection

    The algorithm detects and removes all malware from your emails.

    Ransomware Detection

    Ransomware is blocked from emails so it can’t get a foothold on your server or computer.

    Phishing Detection

    It prevents whaling and spear-phishing by scanning all inbound emails in real-time.

    Spyware Detection

    Double antivirus protection ensures no spyware gets onto your system.

    Lab Test Results

    SpamTitan is tested every month by independent companies. Its most recent notable award was in 2017: Spam Filter Reviews gave it a Gold Star rating.

    Ease of Use and Interface

    The dashboard is confusing if you’re not technically-minded, although there are plenty of helpful videos available on the website. Sections let you tweak and monitor system settings, content filtering, reports, and more.
