InterGate Mail Service
Vicomsoft today launched InterGate Mail Service, a managed email filtering service designed for corporate networks of any size to protect against spam as well as viruses for both email and images. Striving to deliver 0 percent false-positives, the service operates outside the local IT environment which negates the need for users to manage or update the service with virus definitions. The software filters email externally to conserve bandwidth inside corporate networks, and boasts "zero hour" protection from the initial seconds of a spam or virus outbreak. InterGate Mail Service also protects against denial of service and directory harvest attacks via rules engines and visual reporting mechanisms, according to Vicomsoft. The subscription-based solution is fully managed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and includes multiple identity-based engines to detect viruses (pricing was unavailable).
