AVIRA MailGate Publisher's description
AVIRA MailGate is a comprehensive antivirus solution
AVIRA MailGate is a comprehensive antivirus solution, especially designed to offer smooth information exchange, functioning at high speed and checking both incoming and outgoing emails.
Companies incline to settle on Unix servers at a greater extent than ever before. Corporate networks include a high number of Windows workstations and Windows users generally employ the Unix servers for their e-mail exchange. Recently, the Windows environment is increasingly aimed by virus writers through e-mail malware. This leads to a larger need of reliable protection at gateway level, so that infected e-mails do not reach any Windows workstation.
AVIRA MailGate is a Unix-dedicated solution, able to reliably handle e-mail filtering against malicious contents, scanning the entire traffic (to and from the Internet, as well as the internal traffic), by checking the incoming and outgoing SMTP connections directly on the mail server.
AVIRA MailGate acts as an SMTP gateway with a diversity of Mail Transport Agents (such as: Sendmail, Postfix, Exim, Qmail and many others), or as a plug-in application with Postfix, Exim and Sendmail-Milter.
It runs on common Linux Distributions - Red Hat, SuSE, Debian, Mandrake, Fedora, Gentoo, Slackware, etc, FreeBSD 4.x / 5.x and OpenBSD 3.4 or newer. This solution also supports Access Control Lists, when running in the gateway mode.
MailGate??пїЅs ability to run as a plug-in for Postfix, Exim and Sendmail-Milter offers top scanning speeds and better scalability comparing to the usual mail gateway configurations. The product does not use additional mail queues and the message content is not duplicated for scanning. Moreover, it ensures that the infected messages are isolated in the quarantine directory.
