Clearswift Delivers Simplicity for Enterprise Content Security


MIMEsweeper SMTP Appliance version 2.4 delivers innovative enterprise class network management and new generation Spamlogic

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—July 27, 2006—Building on its recent Frost and Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation, Clearswift continues its drive to simplify content security by launching a new enterprise class version of its email security appliance. MIMEsweeper SMTP Appliance version 2.4 delivers tangible benefits to customers of all sizes with the next generation of the award winning SpamLogic engine. Targeted at enterprise customers, MIMEsweeper SMTP Appliance incorporates a number of new features that specifically address the needs of organizations with multi-box deployments.

MIMEsweeper SMTP Appliance 2.4 offers a range of new features including additional anti-spam signature technology, multi-appliance support, peer appliance Personal Message Management (PMM), integration with 3rd party archiving and encryption solutions, as well as innovative network configuration and diagnostic improvements.

Jon Lee, CEO, Clearswift commented: “Our goal is to make it easier for all our enterprise customers to manage their content security, whether they have chosen software, an appliance or a managed service solution. That means that we are constantly testing and enhancing the products to make sure that we’re the best we can be. The updates to the MIMEsweeper SMTP Appliance 2.4 reflect both market needs and the latest in technological thinking.”

The enhancements are designed to improve the manageability of MIMEsweeper SMTP Appliance 2.4 and are focused on enhancing the administrators’ experience. Clearswift is delivering improved diagnostic and management features that radically improve the network manageability for multi-box deployments, including MIMEsweeper peer appliance replication which allows policy and configuration to be created and adapted on one appliance and then replicated across up to 7 other appliances simultaneously.

This, combined with the MIMEsweeper peer appliance PMM, which allows a single appliance to be assigned responsibility for collecting details of messages held from other appliances and delivering one single digest to users, simplifies the process of ensuring security of all content.

Clearswift is also launching a new generation of its SpamLogic spam detection software, which is able to detect known automated spam profile signatures, also known as ‘bullets’. Bullets are small, targeted signatures, based on a combination of message attributes unique to that spammer that are repeatable from one spam message to the next. The Appliance provides a sliding scale of detection capabilities according to customer needs.

David Carr, Chairman of the MIMEsweeper User Group said: “The new features in version 2.4 of the MIMEsweeper SMTP Appliance are going to make a difference to the workload of your average email administrator when deploying policy changes. With the inclusion of centralized PMM digests and enterprise management of e-mail policy this product delivers multi-box redundancy and ensures human error is minimized”.

Further new features include dual disposal actions that allow administrators to allow two actions when a content rule is triggered. For example a suspect email can be delivered and simultaneously routed to a server for archiving. Combined with the new Message Parking feature, which allows emails to be held back and delivered later in the day in order to avoid bandwidth problems, the Dual Disposal actions make an email network perform more efficiently while maintaining security.
