Think of how much time and money your company spent over the last two years battling various viruses, worms, and malicious content. Then think about how much easier your life would have been if you had software that was automatically quarantining any virus-infected or potentially malicious files before they ever reached your users.

      GFI MailSecurity "gobbles" all threats to your email security

      MCP Magazine's verdict on GFI MailSecurity for Exchange 2000 is: "It does perfectly what it was designed to do - identify, hunt and kill anything that looks like a threat to email security with the quiet relentlessness and thoroughness of white blood cells gobbling an intruder in your bloodstream." The publication described GFI MailSecurity as offering "completeness and ease of operation" as well as being transparent to the user and requiring "no training for users and little, if any, additional administration beyond the initial set-up". MCP Magazine added that: "Its antivirus engine scans all inbound and outbound mail both internally and inter-company and can quarantine or remove suspicious attachments. It can also be configured to remove scripting code in the body of a message. This can present a problem for forms included in newsletters, for example, but that’s a small price to pay for security. The nice thing about this feature is that it’s not dependent on keeping a virus list up to date; it detects and removes scripts regardless." - MCPMag.com
