Vircom offers new e-mail security virtual machine
Montreal-based Vircom Inc., an e-mail security specialist, has unveiled its modusGate VM e-mail security software, an anti-spam virtualization platform.
The company calls e-mail security products a “perfect target for virtualization.”
Vircom also notes that an e-mail security virtual machine can grow at the same rate as an organization’s mailbox count and e-mail volume, “thus maximizing the host server’s utilization and reducing costs associated with power and cooling, rack and floor space, and
maintenance and upgrades.”
Backups and recovery also can be achieved at lower costs than with physical systems, the company adds.
Optimized for small and medium-sized corporate and service-provider environments, modusGate VM runs on Windows 2003 and 2008 guest OS, and performs spam filtering for virtual and physical e-mail servers, including Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010.
