Singapore - Sophos, a global leader in computer anti-virus
protection for businesses, has announced the launch of a new
version of its award-winning MailMonitor for Exchange product to
scan Microsoft Exchange 2003 servers for email-aware worms,
viruses, and Trojan horses.
Sophos MailMonitor for Exchange v1.6 ensures the availability of
world-class virus protection at the same time as Microsoft brings
its Exchange Server 2003 product to market. MailMonitor scans for
viruses in all incoming emails, enabling network administrators to
either disinfect, delete or quarantine infected messages.
"Sophos's early support for Microsoft Exchange 2003 helps
deliver a solution that gives our mutual customers a complete
defence against virus attack," said Nigel Postings, Exchange Server
2003 product marketing manager, Microsoft Ltd. "We look forward to
continuing to work with Sophos, protecting our joint customers at
the desktop, server, email gateway and beyond."
"The most widespread viruses exploit email services to spread
themselves," said Charles Cousins, managing director of Sophos
Anti-Virus Asia. "Many companies will be considering upgrading
their email servers to Microsoft Exchange 2003 and will be looking
for an established anti-virus vendor which can provide them with
protection throughout that transition and into the future. Sophos
is well placed to provide that protection against the hundreds of
new viruses we see each month."
Sophos MailMonitor for Exchange is capable of scanning all
messages and files for viruses, Trojans and worms regardless of
their entry route before they are delivered to users. The software,
which works with both Microsoft Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003 can
be kept constantly up-to-date with protection against the latest
virus threats using Sophos' Enterprise Manager product.
