Montreal, QC (PRWEB) January 19, 2005 — Messaging Architects, a leading developer of add-ons and enhancements for corporate messaging servers, especially Novell’s GroupWise, announced that GWGuardian was among Network World’s “favorite picks” of leading anti-spam appliance providers in the publication’s December 20 issue.

The product review compared anti-spam appliances, software products, and managed services from 35 different vendors to determine the most effective solutions with respect to stopping spam and keeping legitimate email flowing. The test looked at four key areas: spam-oriented features, per-user features, anti-virus and policy-based filtering, and logging and management.

Each product or service tested filtered more than 10,000 emails and was measured for accuracy of spam filtering technology and rate of false positives. GWGuardian was deemed “most flexible” in the ease-of-customization category. In addition, GWGuardian was singled out for its powerful Sieve-based policy management. To earn an in-depth evaluation, GWGuardian scored high on the qualifying tests, including an out-of-the-box spam catch effectiveness rate of 97 percent. GWGuardian was the only product reviewed that offers native integration with Novell GroupWise and eDirectory for comprehensive policy-based management.

At the end of the evaluation, Network World recommended Messaging Architects’ GWGuardian as a favorite that should be on any company’s shortlist. From all solutions designed for GroupWise, GWGuardian was the only one which successfully passed the rigorous testing and placed in the top three among all anti-spam vendors.

“GWGuardian’s performance validates what we hear from our clients on a daily basis” said Pierre Chamberland, CEO and Chief Evangelist of Messaging Architects. “Since the product was introduced three years ago, we’ve enjoyed a 99% renewal rate on updates and support, making it the highest rated security solution for GroupWise on the market. We are very pleased that Network World has recognized our drive to offer administrators a powerful self-managed solution that leverages the power of Novell’s eDirectory.”
