By | May 22, 2006

Sunbelt Software has announced the release of its new enterprise messaging security solution, Sunbelt Messaging Ninja. Built for Microsoft Exchange, the product delivers best-of-breed anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-phishing along with the most powerful attachment filtering available, wrapped in a plug-in framework that allows additional security features to be added easily.

As Ninja´s plug-in architecture was designed with flexibility and extendibility in mind, Ninja´s security functionality will broaden in the future to include automatic disclaimers, content filtering, content auditing, archiving and more.

Policy-based plug-in framework Using Ninja´s plug-in architecture, administrators can create custom policies for Active Directory users or groups and separate policy templates can be created for different groups or individuals, fine-tuning each policy to suit different constituent needs.

“We´re seeing a shift from standalone anti-spam and anti-virus products to solutions that incorporate more powerful, comprehensive protection against a wider array of messaging security threats,” said Laura DiDio, Research Fellow at Yankee Group, a Boston-based consultancy. “Corporate IT departments are extremely cost conscious. A single solution lowers TCO and reduces the time it takes to apply and administer multiple solutions. Sunbelt´s Messaging Ninja delivers this ´all-in-one´ solution with excellent technical support at an affordable price point,” DiDio added.

Sunbelt Messaging Ninja is priced aggressively for all corporate environments and includes one year of support, updates and upgrades. New customers can purchase Sunbelt Messaging Ninja on a per-mailbox basis. Pricing includes the first year maintenance and starts at Ј90.00 for 5 mailboxes and goes down to Ј10.65 per mailbox in volume. Users of Sunbelt´s other mail security solution, iHateSpam for Exchange, can upgrade to Ninja´s improved anti-spam functionality at no charge.
