Product of the Day: CanIt-PRO Anti-Spam Solution
The need to provide a creative approach to fight spam is a necessary ingredient in the war against spam and viruses. Each user's needs are unique. What one person calls spam is another person's must-read message. How do we define what is spam? Roaring Penguin Software offers an email server-side anti-spam solution that provides the flexibility and end user control to deal with the unique needs of every user. CanIt-PRO combines global filtering policies with end-user control. It can be deployed in any enterprise e-mail environment, including on all Linux and UNIX servers.
For spam detection CanIt-PRO uses a variety of techniques that include keyword search, header analysis, message format, Bayesian statistical analysis, blacklists, whitelists, greylist, open proxy list and DNS verification. The software incorporates MIMEDefang, the most widely used UNIX Milter, SpamAssassin one of the most effective spam detectors in the market and Clam Anti-Virus an open source anti-virus solution. Version 3.0 has just been released and offers a new level of customizability to select the filters to define what is spam. "CanIt-PRO 3.0 enhances individual users' ability to opt-in to spam filtering and to manage the details of their personal filters using an attractive, efficient new user interface," said David Skoll, Roaring Penguin's President and CEO.
CanIt-PRO includes the option to filter outbound e-mail, an important feature for many organizations to protect the reputation of their domains. With CanIt-PRO 3.0, administrators can now easily identify what mail will and will not be filtered--including mail leaving one's own domain as well as mail circulating within a domain. This is important in the fight against "zombie" spamming machines and other threats. The software is completely customizable in Perl and the full source code is included. It will work with Linux, FREE BSD, Solaris, HP-UX and Tru64 UNIX operating systems. As a stand-alone gateway appliance, CanIt-PRO can protect e-mail environments running non-UNIX servers, such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes and Novell Groupwise. The architecture is highly scalable and it can accommodate installations with 120,000+ users.
CanIT Pro was recently installed (November 2004) in the Northshore School district of Bothel, Washington, to protect the district's 3,500 e-mail users. The results of the deployment saw a 60% decrease in the level of incoming spam. The software is ideal for campuses, ISP's and large organizations where there is a need for global filtering policies balanced with the need of the individual user/department to define what is spam for each user. Roaring Penguin has extensive experience in the education market as CanIt-PRO has been installed at the University of North Carolina, University of Kansas, Ithaca College and other educational institutions in the USA and Canada.
CanIT-PRO is based on opensource software so their are no client software licenses. It is priced on a per user with discounts available for education institutions. A trial version of CanIt-PRO can be obtained here.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
