Sophos, a world leader in integrated threat management,
announces PureMessage for UNIX 5.1, the company's enhanced email
gateway solution. PureMessage 5.1 is the first email gateway to
employ locally hosted reputation filtering technology that checks
the source data of incoming messages against an extensive and
constantly updated database of known spammers, eradicating messages
originating from known violators. The resulting efficiencies can
increase email processing speed by 50 percent or more, saving time
and valuable network resources.
In addition, PureMessage's end-user controls have been expanded.
An intelligent predictive algorithm enables it to scan and identify
the language source of each inbound message and present it to the
user in a readable fashion in both the email summary and within the
email console. This level of simplification, including an improved
display of various Asian-characters, means greater email management
efficiency for organizations with multi-national mail streams or
for companies with operations, partners, customers, and/or
suppliers in Asia.
"These new processing efficiencies, in combination with Sophos's
leading threat detection and prevention capabilities, provide an
industry-best level of throughput as well as our already recognized
superior ability to manage the entire email threat spectrum,
including viruses, phishing scams, international spam, foreign
languages and characters, and hoaxes," said Chris Kraft, vice
president of product management at Sophos.
PureMessage 5.1 includes additional features, such as spam
genotyping, a proprietary system for identifying and blocking spam
campaigns, to further increase efficiency and threat protection.
PureMessage, and all of Sophos's products and services, are backed
up by SophosLabs, Sophos's global network of spam detection and
analysis centers, providing additional protection against viruses,
phishing scams, and zombie infection.
