Yenra : Software : Exchange Server Spam Filter : Mail content security and anti-virus protection filtering


GFI's entire product range for Exchange supports Exchange Server. GFI products for Exchange Server include GFI Mail Security, which provides email content security and anti-virus protection; GFI Mail Essentials, which offers server-based anti-spam; and GFI FAX maker server software.

"Our server-based anti-spam product, GFI Mail Essentials and our email content security product, GFI Mail Security will take advantage of Microsoft Exchange Server's new anti-spam tool and its improved Virus Scanning API respectively. Microsoft's anti-spam tool is unique, and through it we can offer unparalleled spam protection. Exchange's open architecture enables Exchange users to add on best-of-breed products such as GFI's, making Exchange Server the best mail server solution available today," said Nick Galea, GFI CEO. "GFI FAX maker expands the superior messaging functionality offered by Exchange by enabling users to send and receive faxes from Outlook."

Microsoft Exchange Server boosts information worker productivity through ubiquitous access to business-critical messaging and calendaring information, as well as security, manageability, availability and reliability enhancements to help further drive down TCO.

"Microsoft is excited to work with GFI to extend the capabilities of the Exchange platform," said Kevin McCuistion, director of Exchange marketing at Microsoft. "With GFI Mail Security, GFI Mail Essentials and GFI FAX maker, GFI aims to offer Exchange administrators enhanced email security and anti-spam protection as well as smooth, administration-free fax serving."

GFI Mail Security for Exchange is an email content checking, exploit detection, threats analysis and anti-virus solution that removes all types of email-borne threats before they can affect an organization's email users.

This seamless integration allows users to send and receive faxes and -- in areas with GSM coverage -- SMS/text messages directly from Microsoft Outlook, making GFI FAXmaker easy to use and learn. GFI FAXmaker for Exchange is easier to manage too: its integration with Exchange reduces administration. The result is increased efficiency and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
