Clearswift MIMEsweeper Now Providing Email Security on IBM Blade Servers


WEBWIRE

Clearswift today announced the availability of MIMEsweeper for SMTP Edge Server on IBM Blade servers and xSeries hardware. The MIMEsweeper for SMTP Edge Server is an email firewall that protects business critical infrastructures from spam, viruses and malware. The availability of MIMEsweeper for SMTP Edge Server on IBM hardware is the latest efforts by Clearswift to ensure that all of its customers have full access to Clearswift’s cutting edge inbound, outbound, and internal messaging security solutions regardless of hardware preference. In conjunction with Clearswift MIMEsweeper for Domino 8.1, IBM Domino R7 and R8 customers also have full access to Clearswift’s award-winning content filtering solutions.

MIMEsweeper for SMTP Edge Server now runs on IBM LS20, HS20, and HS21 Blade centers. In addition to filtering spam, viruses and malware before it hits the internal network, the Edge Server provides a safe and trusted connection for confidential communications between an organization and its valued business partners through the use of TLS encryption.

By deploying the Edge Server, a company’s email servers will be relieved of unwanted spam and malware, more reliable, its networks faster and storage less packed with unwanted information. With less information flowing to the main core of MIMEsweeper, email will arrive faster and reporting will be more responsive while reducing the amount of maintenance required. With the addition of the Edge Server, MIMEsweeper Policy Servers will sit inside the network and focus on content management and policy enforcement.

“The Edge Server allows our customers to focus on getting the most business benefits from their MIMEsweeper investment, while leaving all of the daily email noise for Clearswift to manage,” stated Alyn Hockey, director of product management for Clearswift. “The Edge Server is easy to manage and maintain, and will handle the incoming threats right at the gateway. The solution means more free time for IT, and more bandwidth, more disk space, more responsiveness and more security for the entire enterprise.”

Hockey added, “With our Edge Server, Notes/Domino users will now benefit from a comprehensive spam management environment, as well as from the ability to implement outbound and internal content scanning based upon robust policies already available in our MIMEsweeper for Domino 8.1 solution. The combination of the our Edge Server and MIMEsweeper for Domino delivers a complete inbound and outbound security solution to Notes/Domino users, protecting companies’ networks, employees and reputation against malicious attacks and confidential data leaks.”
