Innovative VIPRE anti-malware technology is core to new email protection suite

Email is the main fabric of communications in any corporation and it is incessantly under attack

Dakota Software, an email software security company, has announced that they have entered into an OEM technology licensing agreement with Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security software, to integrate Sunbelt's VIPREā„¢ Antivirus + Antispyware technology into Dakota's new DakMail suite of email blocking and monitoring software. The software suite protects enterprises and consumer PCs from complex email-borne computer viruses, spyware and malware, and eliminates the risk of emerging malicious threats to email.

Under the terms of the agreement, Dakota Software will license the VIPRE antivirus and antispyware technology and will private label, market and sell a suite of email security technology and services for spam elimination, virus protection, and spyware detection beginning September 1, 2008 in North America.

"Email is the main fabric of communications in any corporation and it is incessantly under attack," said of Chad Loeven, vice president, business development of Sunbelt Software. "As a leading security technology provider, Sunbelt sought to extend our technology to help enterprises protect their email infrastructure. From message monitoring to email management, Dakota combined with Sunbelt's virus and malware protection is a lightweight solution that scales globally with no additional resources required. These Sunbelt-powered security solutions provide enterprises with a reliable and accurate services-oriented approach to fight spam and email-propagated viruses."

Dakota Software's DakMail Monitor and DakMail Security software suites integrate Sunbelt Software's VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware for strong antivirus, antispyware, anti-rootkit and advanced security algorithms to deliver the most powerful protection against today's highly complex malware threats. By detecting and remediating viruses, trojans, worms, spyware, and other malware before they ever reach the network, the product provides a safer approach to data protection. Unlike traditional anti-spam or anti-malware technologies, VIPRE does not require additional resources to operate and does not have any latency affecting performance. DakMail software suites plug directly into Microsoft IIS SMTP servers to filter all data, working in cooperation with other SMTP filters without any of the bulk. Dakota's solutions do not require client software be deployed on all desktops nor does it require a Microsoft Exchange server. Instead it relies on the junk filter options pre-built into Microsoft Outlook for rules definition.

"At Dakota Software, we have the experience in providing easy-to-implement private-label email security services to the world's largest technology providers," said Brian Wurzbacher
president of Dakota Software. "Our relationship with Sunbelt extends our technology's global reach and distribution channel for email protection, while simultaneously allowing Sunbelt to go to market rapidly with industry-leading antispyware and anti-malware offerings."
