Product of the Day: MPP - Message Processing Platform
RAE Internet, a distributor of various antivirus and antispam products since 2001, launched Message Processing Platform (MPP) as its branded solution for your e-mail security concerns. MPP enables forward-thinking security architectures by integrating comprehensive policy tools with embedded security and best-of-breed commercial/open-source technology.
It's directory-enabled policy engine controls how services are applied to your customers or end-users based on your business and technical requirements. This feature allows you to mix and match any of the embedded security features and third party e-mail scanning engines on a per-customer/user basis. This enables you to customize your solution based on your needs--ah, the creativity we seek to be proactive against security threats. The MPP is ideal for e-mail service providers and business customers who require differentiated service and security levels.
The MPP can front-end an existing Exchange, Domino or Groupwise e-mail system or be deployed directly on a Sendmail, Qmail, Postfix, CommuniGate Pro or Surgemail e-mail server. An appliance option is available from their technology partner, Golden Brick (www.gbrick.com). MPP supports multiple operating systems including Linux (i386 and PPC) , Solaris (i386 and Sparc), FreeBSD and OS X. To get a FREE trial download, click here.
Multi Engine Control Module: MECM empowers you to deploy single or multiple virus, spam and content filtering engines. Build layered security by defining multiple engines. MECM current support Sophos, F-PROT, Pattern Authority, ClamAV and SpamAssassin.
Email Virus Control: MPP enables fast and robust virus protection on your Sendmail, Qmail, Postfix, CommuniGate Pro or SurgeMail e-mail server or SMTP gateway.
AntiSpam Control: spam engine control and integrated spam checks, such as black lists, inbound and outbound white lists, per user and per domain spam quarantines and more.
Webmin Management: MPP goes beyond simple configuration control with its Webmin module. Monitor logs, update virus signatures, manage quarantine, and configure all are features.
End User Administered Quarantine: Combine our spam review module with SQL-based quarantine and you have end-user based review of spam.
Block Extensions: You may delete, quarantine, discard or reject e-mail with predefined attachment types.
Add a Custom Signature: Tell users that e-mail was scanned, or add important compliance signatures to each e-mail which is scanned
Per user or Per domain Spam Quarantine: Save spam in per user, per domain or per e-mail address specified locations.
GUI Management: The Webmin module makes management of MPP simple and efficient.
Smart Content Filter: Pattern Authority, by Cybersoft, allows you to filter all profane and harassing e-mail with a single command, smart_content_filter. Linguists keep porn and harassing libraries current.
Denial of Service Prevention: Prevent mail bombs by defining max e-mail size to scan and maximum level of recursion.
Dynamic Module Support: MPP daemon core is fast and efficient by only loading modules required for your configuration.
Non-stop E-mail During Configuration Changes: Mppd provides mppd -r command to reload mppd configurations and virus definitions without interrupting e-mail flow. Mppd -s command provides graceful shutdown option.
Extensive Logging: Six levels of logging, viewable with shell or Webmin. Excellent for troubleshooting.
Selective Scanning: Select the domains or users you wish to scan via comma-separated lists, or text files with one address or domain per line.
Customized Warnings: Warn sender, receiver, admin or any combination with your own custom warning messages.
Discard Feature: Stop bounce messages and virus induced spam by silently discarding infected messages.
Extensive Quarantine Features: Quarantine infected messages, messages that fail cleaning, clean messages or messages that cause scanning errors.
Multiple Platform Support: Linux (glibc 2.3 or higher i386, PPC), Mac OS X, Solaris 8 and 9 (i386 and Sparc), FreeBSD (4.8 or higher)
Practical Task Scheduling Deployment
July 20, 2016 12:00 pm CDT
One of the best things about the UNIX environment (aside from being stable and efficient) is the vast array of software tools available to help you do your job. Traditionally, a UNIX tool does only one thing, but does that one thing very well. For example, grep is very easy to use and can search vast amounts of data quickly. The find tool can find a particular file or files based on all kinds of criteria. It's pretty easy to string these tools together to build even more powerful tools, such as a tool that finds all of the .log files in the /home directory and searches each one for a particular entry. This erector-set mentality allows UNIX system administrators to seem to always have the right tool for the job.
Cron traditionally has been considered another such a tool for job scheduling, but is it enough? This webinar considers that very question. The first part builds on a previous Geek Guide, Beyond Cron, and briefly describes how to know when it might be time to consider upgrading your job scheduling infrastructure. The second part presents an actual planning and implementation framework.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
