The SUSE Appliance Program allowed us to deliver a comprehensive email security solution that meets our customers' needs for simple, agile, and risk-free deployments.
Edinburgh, UK (Vocus) August 2, 2010
Messaging Architects, global experts in email risk management, announced today consistent growth in the number of UK-based clients using M+Guardian, its award-winning secure email gateway. Several organisations in the financial services, corporate, and educational sectors, including Tangible, First Response Finance, Scotcall and Blackpool and the Fylde College, selected M+Guardian as the solution that best addressed the requirements of their email risk management strategies.
M+Guardian's ability to integrate seamlessly in a virtualised infrastructure is a serious advantage of the solution over other products available on the markets. For Simon Bailey of Blackpool and the Fylde College, it was the decisive factor for selecting and deploying the solution at the school.
"We were able to fit M+Guardian in our existing highly virtualised infrastructure with minimal effort. We ran it as a trial for about a week. Already then, everything suggested the appliance would exactly meet our needs and so we went ahead with the purchase," said Bailey.
Part of an end-to-end solution portfolio for email lifecycle management, M+Guardian is a SUSE-powered virtual appliance that integrates leading anti-malware, anti-spam, content filtering and data leak prevention. It consistently outperforms other security products with superior spam catch rates, flexible options for end-user self-management, and a highly granular and comprehensive policy engine.
For David Watson, IT Manager at Tangible, M+Guardian not only simplified the company's email security management, "but more importantly, has made our employees extremely happy."
“We are delighted that more and more organisations in the UK rely on our SUSE Linux Enterprise-based appliances for superior email protection and system uptime,” said David Nicoll, CTO and Solutions Architect at Messaging Architects-UK. “The SUSE Appliance Program allowed us to deliver a comprehensive email security solution that meets our customers' needs for simple, agile, and risk-free deployments."
“Messaging Architects' M+Guardian SUSE-powered appliance, which we use internally at Novell, is a great example of how ISVs can easily customise an enterprise-class operating system to create a smaller footprint, improve performance and reduce security vulnerabilities,” said Joanna Rosenberg, ISV Marketing Manager for the SUSE Appliance Program. “We created the SUSE Appliance Program to help technology partners, such as Messaging Architects, create tailored appliances with SUSE Studio, reduce development and support costs, and reach new markets at innovative price points.”
M+Guardian, Messaging Architects' secure messaging gateway, is available as a virtual appliance and is compatible with all standard email servers, including Novell GroupWise, Microsoft Exchange, and Lotus Notes. For more information, visit the M+Guardian page.
