Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
Messaging Architects, the experts in email lifecycle management and compliance, today announced new support for the VMWare platform with the 2008.2 release of M+Guardian. Organizations can now deploy M+Guardian either as a hardware or a virtual appliance to manage email risks more efficiently and cost-effectively.
M+Guardian filters inbound and outbound emails for security threats, such as malware, confidential data leakage, and offensive or inappropriate content, and blocks them based on an organization's email policies and the roles and responsibilities of individuals. This helps organizations to comply with regulations, such HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and ensure business continuity.
"By supporting VMware, organizations can now add M+Guardian to a virtual platform along with their other mission-critical applications and standardize on one hardware platform," said Maximilian Morgan, Product Manager for M+Guardian at Messaging Architects.
"Benefits include reduced energy savings and IT costs, better hardware efficiency and utilization, and improved availability, security and manageability of all applications."
M+Guardian 2008.2 also features a new deployment wizard, enabling organizations to be up and running in less than half an hour of installing the appliance.
"M+Guardian ensures that our messaging infrastructure is fully protected with the most advanced technology on the market today," said Brad Frisch, Network Engineer, Metropolitan Community College of Kansas City, where M+Guardian is being used to protect the GroupWise and Netmail accounts of 4,300 faculty and staff and 125,000 students.
"It has also helped us to improve the performance of our email servers, potentially saved us a lot of security-related headaches, and unquestionably freed up a huge amount of my time to dedicate to the other tasks in my mandate."
M+Guardian 2008.2 supports Novell GroupWise, Microsoft Exchange, and Lotus Notes. It is field-tested daily in high-volume environments, and currently processes over 6.5 million messages a day for more than 50,000 users.
M+Guardian is the companion product to M+Archive from Messaging Architects, a policy-based email archiving and discovery solution that enables archived email to be instantly searched and retrieved on-demand for legal discovery, internal audits, and requests for information. Together they form the M+Platform and provide organizations with a comprehensive, end-to-end framework for mitigating email risks and meeting compliance requirements - from the moment a message is sent or received to its end-of-life destruction - as required by record retention laws.
Messaging Architects will demonstrate M+Guardian's powerful content filtering features and support for virtualization in a live webcast on June 4 at 1:00 pm EDT.
