Email security

Email security is an important part of reducing the amount of spam, phishing, and other unsolicited emails you receive. At UniSA we use a modern email security service which sits between your mailbox and the outside world, providing an extra layer of security to allow you to open your email with more confidence.

The key features our email security service provides are:

  • A Secure Email Gateway: scanning all inbound and outbound emails for malicious emails and stopping them from ever coming into your inbox
  • URL Protection: scanning all incoming links to protect you from malicious sites
  • Attachment Protection: scanning all incoming attachments for malicious content
  • Impersonation Protection: blocking or marking emails that appear to be impersonating someone from inside the University

Our tools also provide users with controls for dealing with spam, releasing held messages, and selectively allowing emails to get to you.

Learn more about it in either our Staff Email Security or Student Email Security pages.


The IT Help Desk is your single point of contact for assistance with IT Cyber Security questions or concerns at UniSA. Our friendly IT Help Desk staff will assist you and if necessary refer your request to the appropriate expert.
