Sybari Software Delivers Advanced Spam Manager, Sybari Enterprise Manager, Antigen 8.0 For Exchange and SMTP Gateways

East Northport, NY (September 8, 2004) Sybari Software Inc., a global provider of antivirus, antispam and content-filtering security software products, today announced that Sybari Enterprise Manager, Advanced Spam Manager, and Antigen 8.0 for Exchange and SMTP Gateways are now shipping and available. These new products provide enterprise network managers with additional capabilities for combating Internet threats to their corporate email platforms, including centralized software deployment and management, advanced spam detection, and multiple disclaimers.

“E-mail viruses and spam continue to be one of the top issues our customers face,” said Kim Akers, senior director of marketing for Exchange at Microsoft. “The release of a new and enhanced version of Antigen for Exchange along with the releases of Sybari Advanced Spam Manager and Sybari Enterprise Manager is an important step forward in assisting customers to better protect their messaging environments.”


The Sybari Enterprise Manager (SEM) is a new web-based management platform that delivers the tools network managers require for centralized deployment and reporting of all their enterprise email servers running Antigen 8.0. SEM utilizes the Sybari Centralized Optimum Update Technology for updating virus and spam scan engines and analyzing the current health of the network environment via a variety of customizable reports that summarize all spam, virus and content filtering activities. SEM can be used with Antigen 8.0 for Exchange, Antigen 8.0 for SMTP Gateways, and the Advanced Spam Manager (ASM).


Sybari Advanced Spam Manager (ASM) 8.0 provides high-performance, anti-spam, and content-filtering designed specifically to assist enterprise network administrators in reducing the impact of spam messages and unsolicited mail traffic on their networks. The Sybari ASM can be provided as a stand-alone anti-spam solution at the Gateway or as an optional integrated component for Antigen for SMTP Gateways and Antigen for Exchange. ASM 8.0 includes enhanced sender White-listing, junk mail folder support and provides high rates of spam detection with a low incidence of false positives through integration of its SpamCureTM engine. It provides users the benefits of two spam scanning technologies by working in conjunction with Microsoft’s Intelligent Message Filter and integrating with Microsoft’s Outlook 2003 antispam features. “It is critical that today’s businesses maintain the highest level of protection for their email messaging and document collaboration servers. Security solutions must work together in order to provide the protection and performance standards required,” said Tom Buoniello, vice president of product management for Sybari Software. “By working with Microsoft’s enhanced solutions for Exchange 2003, our combined products enable companies to better manage and protect against viruses, malicious code, worms and spam. In addition, by partnering with companies such as MailFilters, we are able to offer products that work together, provide around-the-clock protection to increase the overall security and productivity of corporate networks.” Antigen 8.0 for Exchange & Antigen 8.0 for SMTP Gateways

Antigen for Exchange and Antigen for SMTP Gateways are server based antivirus solutions that deliver comprehensive protection through a unique implementation of multiple antivirus scan engines, and advanced content filtering capabilities. Additional enhancements in version 8.0 include the ability to manage multiple disclaimers for outbound mail and aging of records in the Incident Database to manage its size and growth. For Antigen for SMTP Gateways, the ASM can be provided as an optional component to provide antispam filtering on the same platform.

In addition to unveiling several new products, Sybari is also introducing two new technologies that enable messaging administrators to maintain centralized control and management of all production servers from one location. Sybari’s new Hot Operation Technology permits upgrades of the product, service releases, and hot fixes to be applied without having to recycle services or reboot the server. In addition, Sybari Centralized Optimum Update Technology provides administrators a central mechanism for scan engine updates for multiple remote servers via unique push-pull architecture.
