GFI Software cloud-based anti-malware and anti-spam email security

GFI Software announced that GFI MailEssentials Complete Online, a cloud-based anti-malware and anti-spam email security solution, is now available to small and medium businesses (SMBs) throughout the United Kingdom.

GFI MailEssentials Complete Online enables SMBs to defend against a broad array of email-borne threats to help ensure the security and optimal performance of their IT infrastructure. The solution provides:

Anti-spam and anti-virus protection ­- Fast, accurate response against inbound and outbound spam attacks, including image spam, phishing and email spoofing with minimal false positives; and full defense against viruses, Trojans, spyware, worms, bots, rootkits, zero-hour exploits and other threats.

Network defense – Conserve network bandwidth and ease mail server loads by blocking threats before they enter the network. Connection and traffic filtering reduce strain on email infrastructure and defends against denial of service attacks.

Central management – Web-based interface enables administrators to create and enforce policies, view message quarantines, generate detailed reports on messages scanned and threats detected, and set standard company disclaimers statements attached to all emails.

Individual quarantines controls – Users view and manage their quarantined mail and retrieve any legitimate email. Users also receive regular digests of their detected spam messages in their inbox.

Broad platform support – Mail infrastructure supported includes Microsoft® Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise, VMware Zimbra, Gmail, PostFix, Sendmail and any other SMTP server.

Email continuity – Added benefit of the cloud-based service is that it can enable users to send and receive email through the Web even if their mail server is offline.
