Astaro Corporation, provider of internet security appliances, announced the availability of its newproduct line, Astaro Mail Gateway. Featuring email encryption, spam, and virus protection and remote exchange access, the Astaro Mail Gateway gives small- to medium-sized businesses mail security. Astaro integrates patented filtering to enhance spam detection while minimizing the misclassification of legitimate emails as spam. In addition to spam recognition, Astaro also provides two parallel virus scanners in its mail gateway, blocking traffic in SMTP and POP3 emails. The two scanners receive virus pattern updates independently of each other. Astaro allows users web-based access to their Exchange mailbox with their Outlook client from any location via a secure SSL-VPN connection. All Astaro Mail Gateway models also include single sign-on for both eDirectory and ActiveDirectory.
