Proofpoint introduced the industry's first virtual appliance for enterprise messaging security

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Proofpoint, Inc., the leader in large-enterprise messaging security solutions, today introduced the industry’s first virtual appliance for enterprise messaging security, the Proofpoint Messaging Security Gateway™ for VMware. The Proofpoint Messaging Security Gateway for VMware offers all of the same anti-spam, anti-virus, data privacy and intellectual property leak prevention features found in Proofpoint’s physical appliances in an easy-to-deploy virtual appliance format for VMware’s virtualization products.

Virtual appliances offer many benefits including cost savings, rapid deployment and provisioning, simplified change management and easy backup and disaster recovery. Multiple instances of the Proofpoint Messaging Security Gateway virtual appliance can even be run on the same physical server.

“As more and more large enterprises realize the benefits of server virtualization—including lower costs, increased IT efficiency and improved resource utilization—they are looking to further leverage these savings by moving mission critical applications to a virtual environment,” said Gary Steele, CEO of Proofpoint, Inc. “Email security is a prime candidate for virtualization and Proofpoint’s new virtual appliance provides the world’s first enterprise-class messaging security solution for virtual servers. As the virtualization market matures, Proofpoint intends to introduce versions of its virtual appliance for additional virtualization environments.”
