Locked and Loaded for Security Threats, Choose Your Own Weapons

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.
