SecureGateway for effective e-mail protection

Zen Software : 03 June, 2008  (New Product)
Exchange based e-mail protection software for capturing spam, viruses and other malware to be launched in the UK by Zen Software
Zen Software announces the UK launch of Alt-N Technologies' newly developed software product in the fight against spam, viruses, phishing, spoofing, and other forms of malware that present an ongoing threat to legitimate email communications. SecurityGateway for Exchange/SMTP Servers incorporates 12 years of proven email security expertise and provides affordable email security firewall protection for businesses around the world.

Designed for both local installation and operation in a hosted environment, SecurityGateway is a flexible Windows based software application that for the first time delivers genuinely simple administration, powerful filtering, and accurate results to Exchange users.

James Steel, Product Manager at Zen Software, the UK & Ireland distributor for Alt-N products, says: "We're excited to add a security product to our portfolio that addresses the real world requirements of Exchange administrators. In addition to a plethora of cutting edge security tools to provide peace of mind, features such as the ability to enable end users to manage their own quarantine folders, will appeal to already overworked administrators looking to increase efficiency."

SecurityGateway for Exchange/SMTP incorporates the powerful SIEVE email filtering language with proven security technologies into a product that delivers simple, easy-to-use features to protect, analyse, manage, and report on the inbound and outbound email traffic patterns of Microsoft's Exchange Server or any SMTP email server. Alt-N Technologies' product development team has worked closely with customers and channel partners from around the world to build an email security product that offers quick installation, simple administration, and independent domain management to achieve the strongest security protection based upon a user's unique email traffic patterns.

"Our focus has always been to do everything possible to keep the junk messages and other threats out of the user's inbox," said Arvel Hathcock, Founder and CEO of Alt-N Technologies. "The need for a cost effective edge role security gateway filter to protect mail servers from spam and other forms of Malware has never been greater. However, without a clear understanding of email technology, many products still deliver high false positive rates and users remain frustrated with the performance of their solution. So we have combined our expertise in email delivery technology with our award-winning email security features to develop an entirely new product that meets the needs of any customer using an Exchange or other SMTP email server."

The SecurityGateway for Exchange/SMTP Servers offers many advantages:.

* Comprehensive Security Layers — Developed using a complete arsenal of anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-spoofing, and anti-abuse tools, SecurityGateway incorporates multiple testing methods to deliver maximum protection for mail servers.

* Simple Administration — Intuitive, task oriented interface allows already overworked administrators to perform common actions with minimal effort. Administrative responsibilities may be delegated to a domain administrator. End users are empowered to determine the fate of a message without the need to contact the administrator.

* Comprehensive Reporting — Identifying email traffic patterns and potential problems is simple using SecurityGateway's comprehensive, real-time reporting features. All reports support point-and-click drill-down targeting allowing further analysis to be performed quickly and easily through color coded diagnostics.

* Accurate Detection —Multiple analysis tools for separating threats from legitimate email makes use of the best proven anti-spam, anti-virus, anti-phishing, and anti-spoofing technologies to produce a 99% spam blocking rate and achieve nearly zero false-positive results.

* Data Loss Prevention — In addition to inbound mail traffic filtering, SecurityGateway for Exchange/SMTP also filters outbound email. An easy-to-use interface allows policies to be created which detect and prevent the unauthorized transmission of sensitive information outside of a customer's network.

* Powerful Filtering Engine — SecurityGateway's powerful filtering engine is based upon the industry standard SIEVE mail filtering language. This design provides an administrator with an unlimited ability to extend SecurityGateway's functionality by using new SIEVE scripts for custom control and policy enforcement of email traffic.

* Defence Layer Customisation — A unique control feature that allows email administrators the flexibility to prioritise the order of operations a specific security rule will execute when analysing incoming or outgoing email traffic. This technique can result in faster processing of email by allowing the rejection or quarantine of messages at the earliest stage of analysis.

SecurityGateway for Exchange/SMTP Servers starts at £300 and supports small business as well as Enterprise installations. It will be initially released as a software product. An appliance form factor is scheduled to be offered later in the year.
