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:
- Enter your personal details, then select either SpamTitan Cloud or Private Cloud.
- You’ll then receive log-in instructions in your provided email inbox.
- 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.

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.
The algorithm detects and removes all malware from your emails.
Ransomware is blocked from emails so it can’t get a foothold on your server or computer.
It prevents whaling and spear-phishing by scanning all inbound emails in real-time.
Double antivirus protection ensures no spyware gets onto your system.
The package doesn’t include a firewall since it’s focused on email protection.
