Enhanced Data Leak Prevention – Medical Terminology

Security Gateway’s Data Leak Prevention feature now includes a list of medical terms, with a pre-configured score assigned to each. Administrators can modify these scores, or add their own medical terms. Messages are scanned for matching terms and the sum of the scores for all terms found is calculated. The specified action (administrative quarantine, encrypt) is performed on messages for which the final score exceeds the defined threshold.

The new Change/Audit log allows administrators to review any changes to Security Gateway’s configuration settings, along with who made them.

Security Gateway’s archiving feature now includes the ability to export all archived messages for a domain and compress them into a .zip file that can be downloaded to the desktop.

Active Database Replication for Improved Protection Against System Interruptions

SecurityGateway’s clustering service now supports active database replication for improved failover/redundancy. For additional details, please see the Security Gateway release notes.

Support for Custom Scripts During Message Processing

The ability to run a custom process/script during message processing has been added. Administrators can specify an action based on the result of the script. For more information, please see the Security Gateway release notes.

However in email and DNS terms, it’s an essential security check which can dramatically reduce the amount of spam you’re seeing. It’s also one of those many tricky DNS areas that causes confusion so I hope this post will help demystify it a little.

Professional videos of every speaker at our recent partner event

Alt-N Technologies, BackupAssist, MailStore….they were all there. And that’s not all, we were even fortunate enough to bag a couple of inspirational guest victims speakers!

Yes, just in case you’ve missed us shouting about it every five minutes, last month was our “PartnerMeet” event in Canary Wharf. As you’ve probably gathered, we don’t do these that often (as often as we should!) and we were thrilled with the way it went, not least because of the great presentations made by the speakers we’d lined up for the day.

If you weren’t able to make it along then a) forever hold your head in shame and b) do not fear, we planned for this and took the liberty of booking a film crew to capture the lot.

Enjoy footage in glorious HD of each and every presentation on the day….
