Sure, anti-spam is great, but sometimes more granular and individual levels of control are necessary. That’s where Symantec Messaging Gateway comes into play. Filtering now can be controlled to check for marketing e-mail and unwanted newsletters, and scan for suspicious URLs or shortened URLs that may be dangerous. E-mail filtering also can be dialed down to an individual user level, giving a corporation tight control over the kind of junk that might flow into employee inboxes. This deep e-mail inspection, if you will, is then complemented by a layer of data loss-prevention integration. Symantec Messaging Gateway also integrates with the Symantec Protection Center, allowing for a single pane of glass to access and configure the appliance while also generating reports.
The Symantec Messaging Gateway is now being offered as a virtualized version of this appliance (VMware-ready), allowing the customer some flexibility in deployment while also enjoying a finer level of control over resources in a data center. Symantec Messaging Gateway 9.5 is available now and existing Symantec Brightmail Gateway 9.0 (the technology’s former name) customers (with a valid maintenance contract) are entitled to perform a simple upgrade to Symantec Messaging Gateway 9.5 at no additional cost. According to Symantec’s purchasing page, licenses cost anywhere between $20 and $60 per user.
Lastly, Messaging Gateway isn’t the only product with a name change. Symantec has a few products getting that are getting new monikers this month. Check them out here.
