What’s new in this version
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.
Change / Audit Logging
The new Change/Audit log allows administrators to review any changes to Security Gateway’s configuration settings, along with who made them.
Per-domain Archive Export
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.
