Product of the Day: PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway
Spam is more than just a nuisance; studies indicate that it has a substantial cost impact to an organization. Time wasted deleting junk e-mail costs American businesses nearly $22 billion a year, according to a new study from the University of Maryland. Spam also contributes the added cost of network and system consumption and it exposes organizations to legal liability due to creating a hostile work environment. Furthermore, an extensive amount of damage can be done when email is used for phishing attacks where fraud messages are used for identity theft, or infecting users with viruses or Trojan horses.
To solve this problem, Process Software leveraged its 20 years of experience in selling and supporting mission-critical email and networking solutions to offer PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway enterprise software solution. It eliminates spam, phishing and virus threats at the Internet gateway or email server without losing legitimate messages. PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway's multi-layered filtering engine has a proven out-of-the-box spam detection accuracy rate of 98% without losing legitimate messages. It runs on Linux, Unix, and OpenVMS and has the flexibility to operate in any email environment. It may be deployed as a standalone SMTP proxy solution in front of any email gateway or integrated into an email server, such as Sendmail, Sun Java Messaging Server, or Process Software's PMDF Messaging Server. It scales to large organizations using multiple MTAs where synchronization of data between them is a requirement.
PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway needs minimal administration to filter spam effectively. The web-based administrator interface centralizes all configuration, management, and reporting tasks. It includes effective pre-configured policy settings, and it also provides system administrators the ability to customize the product to their site's requirements. Customization options include tuning filter thresholds, writing your own filter rules, and enabling or disabling any feature on the end user web interface.
Everyone's definition of spam is unique. PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway gives each user the option to determine what is spam and what is not spam, giving them precisely the email they want. Using an intuitive web interface, users can set their spam filter preferences such as tagging and/or quarantining suspected spam messages, reviewing and retrieving messages from quarantine, setting email notification summary of quarantined messages, changing filter thresholds, and more. Although there is extensive user flexibility, PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway is designed for all skill levels so that no training is required. With its web-based interface and logical design, users can participate in defining spam as much or as little as they want. Giving email users control over spam allows them to contribute to the solution. The result is higher user satisfaction and greater return on solution investment.
Process Software's 20-years of experience combined with PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway's high filter detection accuracy rate and flexible web user interface has made it a popular solution among enterprises and universities. After deploying PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway to protect over 20,000 email users at the University of Canterbury, the IT manager noted, "PreciseMail is an effective out-of-the-box solution, filtering 98% of the spam. With such a diverse range of users in a highly specialized environment, this tool has proved to be invaluable to the University." At Middlesex University where over 24,000 email users are protected by PreciseMail Anti-Spam Gateway, the security team leader said, "The web-based interface is self-explanatory. The intuitive interface combined with user education resulted in few Help Desk inquiries."

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?
