eManager from Trend Micro Inc. ("Spam" Mail and E-mail Content Filtering)
Platforms: Solaris, Windows NT
Price: $816 for InterScan VirusWall and eManager suite with 25-user license
- A key element of eManager is the "spam" filter, designed to
prevent junk e-mail from clogging the corporate network. eManager is being
introduced in conjunction with InterScan VirusWall3.0, Trend Micro's
Internet gateway traffic scanning software.
eManager's features include:
- A rule-based spam filter that allows eManager to block junk mail
before it reaches a company's mail server. The spam filter includes
both a self-updating list of common spam sources and a customizable
list of sources. The filter checks message headers (to, from, cc and
subject fields) for routing domain, inbound/outbound status and message
size, and checks the message body for designated keywords and phrases.
- An e-mail content filter that can sift through messages to prevent
distribution of confidential or inappropriate information into or out
of the enterprise. Filter profiles are based on keyword lists, Boolean
("not") keyword lists and synonyms. Blocked e-mail can be deleted,
quarantined or archived.
- A rule-based e-mail manager designed to conserve network bandwidth by
managing the delivery time of e-mail with large attachments. The
software checks message headers for routing domain, inbound/outbound
status and message size, then reschedules message delivery as
appropriate to off-peak hours. The e-mail manager provides IT managers
with easy-to-interpret graphs with statistical information about
inbound and outbound e-mail traffic on an ongoing basis, which can be
used to make appropriate delivery time decisions.
