Clearswift upgrades MIMEsweeper™ Email Appliance


New ‘TRUSTmanager™’ reputation service tightens grip on spam even further

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – November 21, 2006 – Clearswift continued its drive to simplify content security by launching today a new version of its email security appliance which boasts a new reputation service enabling even tighter control over spam.

Using the new TRUSTmanager, the MIMEsweeper Email Appliance 2.5 can now check the ‘reputation’ of all connecting SMTP hosts against a constantly updated database of reputation scores provided by Clearswift. The host is then evaluated for previous spam related activities and awarded a ‘reputation score’. The TRUSTmanager score can be adjusted to trigger at differing levels to suit the needs of individual organizations.

“Every company has to contend with the considerable administrative issues created by spam,” Clearswift’s CEO, Jon Lee, said. “We are delighted the capabilities of TRUSTmanager, combined with the double filter of Clearswift’s SpamLogic and Mail Filters’ spam detection software will provide a virtually insurmountable barrier to spammers.”

The appliance will also include a new SpamLogic image filtering to kill all image based spam, in addition to an improved ThreatLab™ service for finer grain control.

MIMEsweeper Email Appliance 2.5 offers a range of other new features, which include multi-box message management and tracking capabilities, enabling message queues, areas and tracking to be managed across all peer appliances as if they were one appliance.

“Clearswift’s goal is to simplify content security without compromising on enterprise-class protection,” said Mr. Lee. “The enhancements to the award-winning MIMEsweeper Email Appliance demonstrate Clearswift’s commitment to providing businesses with outstanding IT security while simultaneously making email security as simple and manageable as possible for IT administrators.”

Clearswift’s Email Appliance is simple to install, configure and manage, making it the industry’s only truly “plug and play” email security appliance. Not only does it stop threats from entering the corporate network, it also filters outbound content to stop company intellectual property leaving an organization.

The MIMEsweeper Email Appliance delivers ease of use with a 30 minute setup that, unlike competitive offerings, does not require assistance from on-site engineers. The appliance has a unique “out of the box” policies approach that allows users to be up and running as soon as the box is installed and delivers the most comprehensive email security appliance on the market.
