Astaro enters SMB e-mail security market
Astaro Mail Gateway is a new high performance, low cost alternative to traditional market leaders. Featuring email encryption, spam and virus protection and remote exchange access, the Astaro Mail Gateway gives small- to medium-sized businesses comprehensive, easy-to-manage mail security. In order to drive market awareness, Astaro is introducing the product at 50 percent off through the Better than Barracuda Promotion.
Astaro’s email encryption runs transparently at the gateway, eliminating the need for employee action. Removing individual employees from the encryption process significantly lowers the possibility that confidential data may accidentally be sent in plaintext across the Internet.Ã‚Â Based on recognized standards, such as S/MIME, OpenPGP, and TLS, Astaro’s encryption also allows for scanning of encrypted emails for malware.
While talking about anti-spam technologies, Astaro integrated patented, reputation-based filtering to significantly enhance spam detection while minimizing the misclassification of legitimate emails as spam. Remote access security allows mobile users to enjoy the benefits of the Astaro Mail Gateway while on the road.Ã‚Â Astaro allows users web-based access to their Exchange mailbox with their Outlook client from any location via a secure SSL-VPN connection.Ã‚Â All Astaro Mail Gateway models also include single sign-on for both eDirectory and ActiveDirectory.
The Better than Barracuda Promotion runs through December 31, 2008, and offers all Astaro Mail Gateway and Astaro Web Gateway appliances at 50 percent off. Through the promotion, Astaro Mail Gateway is available at a starting price of $499.
