Mirapoint Intros Email Security Appliance

Mirapoint introduced the industry's first autonomous email security appliance

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Mirapoint, the secure messaging expert, today introduced the industry’s first autonomous email security appliance, designed to reject unwanted messages and enforce centrally managed email policies without reliance on any IT resources behind the corporate firewall.

Mirapoint’s RazorGate email security appliance with the Embedded Policy Engine™ provides enterprises and service provider customers with a more secure, scalable, and affordable architecture for enterprise email. The Mirapoint solution’s unique architecture reduces total network traffic, reduces load on the corporate directory, and closes holes in the firewall.

Traditional email security products leave critical infrastructure exposed. These systems have to query the corporate directory for each and every piece of incoming mail to check whether the recipient is valid. As a result, every single message, whether ultimately accepted or rejected, generates additional load on the firewall, internal network, and the corporate directory. Mirapoint’s RazorGate with Embedded Policy Engine eliminates this problem by validating recipients autonomously at the edge of the network for each message.

"To be able to deal with regular flareups of the chronic spam problem that is expected to reach 40 billion spam messages being sent daily in 2007, enterprises will need high performance messaging security solutions that can effectively protect email users against spam over the long term. Having an embedded directory could make this process easier for enterprises," said Mark Levitt, VP for Collaborative Computing and the Enterprise Workplace research at IDC.
