processing engine capable of intercepting virus-carrying email messages quickly and effectively. The TetherScan appliance acts as an email firewall, providing immediate relief to dangerous email-borne viruses and is compatible with all existing Internet email servers.
ÂTetherScan offers easy to deploy email virus protection in an appliance form factor,Â said Tethernet CTO Mark Fischer. ÂThis product is designed to be easy to deploy and manage, thereby reducing the overall costs of deploying an effective email anti-virus solution.Â
The threat of email-based viruses has increased dramatically, and an email anti-virus solution is a key step in preventing virus outbreaks from damaging corporate systems and reducing productivity. Typical email based viruses contain identifiable digital signatures and these signatures are often common between different virus due to their shared parental lineage and sources. Effective open source virus components are available on the Internet for transportation, replication and submission of email-based viruses, making the creation of new viruses quick and easy for malicious individuals. These components are continuously evolving, and the focus of new viruses has shifted from simple mischief to information espionage. This creates a more dangerous threat for businesses and organizations, which store sensitive information on their network. The need for an email anti-virus solution has never been greater.
The efficient 1U rack mount form factor appliance offers quick and simple deployment, requiring no changes to the existing email server. The TetherScan appliance can easily be deployed in conjunction with existing anti-spam solutions, adding a layer of anti-virus protection to the email infrastructure. Initial configuration is done via a front-panel graphic display and keypad. TetherScan offers near-zero administration with a pre-programmed configuration to effectively stop viruses. Through a web-based interface administrators can customize the engine according to business preferences. The appliance provides on-board storage to hold messages in quarantine keeping the actual email servers free from the burden of quarantine storage.
