It sounds like this is something like "anti-spam for the network". (It's 2017, so also "with machine learning" of course.)

Anti-spam is never perfect and inevitably either blocks some legitimate mail and/or allows some spam through.

In this case the equivalent behaviour of blocking legitimate traffic does not sound much fun to diagnose, and of allowing some bad traffic does not sound very effective...

What am I missing?
