SONICWALL TAKES EMAIL SECURITY OFFERING TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH NEW CAPABILITIES IN THE WAR AGAINST SPAM
SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNWL) today launched a new version (version 6.0) of its Email Security solution that delivers powerful new performance and management capabilities to help keep organisations productive and safe from inbound and outbound email threats.
At the core of the enhancements to SonicWALL Email Security are a complete range of enterprise-class capabilities that deliver complete inbound and outbound email protection in a highly scalable, easy to manage, proven solution. These enhancements include continuing improvements in the ability to stop new spam, phishing and virus attacks by delivering comprehensive protection updates to its customers every five minutes and the introduction of advanced and enhanced Image spam and Stock TIKR spam techniques.
SonicWALL Email Security Version 6.0 also adds features designed to improve manageability of the system such as: a new administrative user interface, real time system monitoring of email throughput and CPU usage, improved reporting performance and simplified licensing. In addition, Version 6.0 continues to extend the flexibility of SonicWALL’s industry leading end-user controls with improvements to Junk Box summaries, enhanced personal allowed-list management and the introduction of user-action notifications – all designed to reduce IT administrator’s involvement in day-to-day end user email management.
Based on the new capabilities of Version 6.0, SonicWALL has added existing Email Security products, 6000 and 8000, to its new E Class line, which has recently been announced. “The SonicWALL Email Security 6000 and 8000 systems have proven themselves to be enterprise class solutions that are being used throughout the world today,” stated Gleb Budman, Senior Director of Product Management at SonicWALL. “Version 6.0 delivers a customer driven group of enhancements that not only make the system more effective, but improves monitoring, reporting, scalability, and maintenance while simplifying the overall usability of the system for the IT staff and for end users.”
SonicWALL Email Security is a self-running, self-updating solution delivering comprehensive inbound and outbound email protection in either software or appliance versions for organisations from 10 to 100,000 people. SonicWALL Email Security 6000 and 8000 solutions, for organisations of 5,000 users and above, provide comprehensive protection for the enterprise against spam, virus and phishing attacks in addition to preventing confidential information leaks and violations of regulatory compliance laws such as HIPAA, GLBA and SOX.
SonicWALL Email Security 6.0 is available as either software or a hardened Appliance. It expands appliance management capabilities to include Safemode, which adds redundancy for firmware recovery; RAID monitoring and repair; a Command Line Interface which provides scriptable access, NTP and SMTP support, and a host of optional commands and support for SNMP-based system monitoring.
