IntelliReach Unveils High Performance Linux-Based Spam And Content Filtering Appliance

IntelliReach MessageScreen(TM) 4.3 adds Linux operating system support and enhanced management utilities to already impressive spam and content filtering capabilities

IntelliReach Corporation, the leader in integrated security, compliance and management solutions for corporate messaging environments, announced today the latest version of its high performance spam and content filtering appliance, now supporting the Linux operating system. MessageScreen(TM) 4.3, natively integrated with Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Outlook(R) and Novell (Nasdaq: NOVL) GroupWise(R), is a sophisticated, appliance-based content and spam gateway filter that stops spam, viruses and explicit content before it can enter the network.

“IntelliReach is staying ahead of the growing volume of spam and viruses with this new Linux-based version of MessageScreen,” commented Greg Arnette, IntelliReach’s Founder and Chief Technology Officer. “With our new Linux option, users can expect to see substantial performance increases and the lowest total cost of ownership of any appliance-based spam solution. We’ve also enhanced MessageScreen’s administrative and end-user tools to allow simple deployment, easy configuration and trouble-free maintenance.”

This latest version of MessageScreen implements true multi-layer filtering that identifies and stops the latest spamming techniques. Using deep scanning technology such as Real-Time Block Lists, Sender Server Verification, lexical scanning, predictive analysis and heuristic scoring, MessageScreen inspects the header, body and attachments of each email to stay one step ahead of emerging spamming tactics. Users can expect to realize an immediate reduction of spam by deploying any one of the more than 8,000 base rules that come standard with MessageScreen.

“Spam, viruses and unwanted emails continue to be a major threat to organizations worldwide,” commented Jay Wood, Director of Product Marketing for Nterprise Solutions at Novell. “The optimization of MessageScreen on the SUSE LINUX operating system means customers benefit from a solution which offers best-in-class performance, security, reliability and total cost of ownership.”

The new key features of MessageScreen 4.3 include:

— Custom fit spam, virus and content protection for any size organization through the options of Sun Solaris or SUSE LINUX operating systems and various appliance sizes
