Answer

A term that was coined during the Korean War, DMZ is an abbreviation for
Demilitarized Zone. It originally signified the disputed area along the
38th parallel dividing Korea into North and South.

When used in
association with the Internet, the term indicates a section of the network
which is protected from both the Internet and the owning Company’s network
by routers.

GMS is able to provide controlled mail relay services for
use in DMZs. GMS can also check for spam and viruses in the DMZ so that
such email never even enters the corporate network.
