Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 5, 2006
A new solution to combat the continued problem of email malware and spam has been launched onto the market. What’s the big deal about that I hear you say? There is no shortage of choice in this space from both hardware and software vendors. However, as an indication of the increase in popularity of the virtual machine this solution is one of the first to allow companies deploy a virtual Spam Appliance. SpamTitan for VMware© is an email security software suite purpose built to run on a VMware© platform. SpamTitan have already released SpamTitan ISO, which contains both the operating system and software suite to allow companies produce their own purpose built email gateway appliance. SpamTitan for VMware© goes a step further and enables companies to operate the SpamTitan product in a virtual server utilizing the VMware© suite of products.
Downloaded from the SpamTitan site, SpamTitan for VMware© is then run on the VMware© product of choice such as VMware Player© or VMware Workstation©. This gives them all the benefits associated with a traditional appliance solution in that it is simple to install, set up and manage, but also the advantage of capitalising on existing infrastructure, saving on server space and management costs.
“We have been watching the development of the virtualisation market for some time now. The greater acceptance of this technology and the improved performance of the products in the market tell us that the time in now right for the release of SpamTitan for VMware©. Customers are already displaying an eagerness to utilise virtual machines so it only makes sense to develop specific applications to operate in these environments.” says Ronan Kavanagh, CEO of SpamTitan.
SpamTitan is available on a 30 day evaluation from the SpamTitan website http://www.spamtitan.com . It contains dual antivirus engines including Kaspersky Labs, 98% accuracy in spam detection, content filtering, spam reports and management tools for the individual to control their own email and a host of reports on all email activity. All updates and backups are automated to keep the management overhead to a minimum.
“While physical appliances will always be required, the virtual server market is growing at a phenomenal rate, the requirement for solutions to meet this market is only set to grow in parallel and SpamTitan are delighted to be at the forefront in solution delivery in this space.” Says Mr Kavanagh.
