By | April 25, 2006

Sendmail Inc., the leading provider of enterprise solutions for secure, dependable and compliant messaging, today announced the Mailstream family of email security and compliance software. Building on the success of Sendmail Mailstream Manager software, the Mailstream Family provides the most comprehensive anti-abuse and compliance-enabling software portfolio available today.

Sendmail “Active Policy”

Unlike most email security solutions that simply scan for spam and viruses, the Mailstream family delivers Active Policy, Sendmail´s industry-leading platform for compliance and security. Sendmail Active Policy automates security and compliance with pre-built lexicons (HIPAA, GLBA, SOX), including the ability to easily create new policies using an intuitive Web-based interface. With comprehensive capabilities and virtually unlimited flexibility, Active Policy provides organizations a solution to keep pace with rapidly changing conditions.

“Email security is incomplete without policy. When it comes to advanced requirements like compliance, governance and directory utilization, none of these can be addressed without this important capability,” said Richard Kreysar, CEO of Sendmail. “The Mailstream family´s Active Policy continues Sendmail´s practice of delivering intelligent technologies to solve complex business problems. Active Policy allows organizations to extend messaging security beyond the existing technology limitations to provide broad compliance and, ultimately, complete message control.”

Sendmail “Anti-abuse”

The Mailstream family of security and compliance software takes email security a step beyond traditional solutions. Building on the Sendmail MTA´s world-leading secure routing infrastructure, the Mailstream family enables SMTP-level connection control; zero-hour anti-abuse protection from spam, viruses, phishing, and malware; and directory integration for directory-optimized security. Sendmail anti-abuse capabilities are tied together with Sendmail´s Active Policy – allowing email security to solve business problems.
