Commtouch Security Technology Integrated into Proxmox Mail Gateway

August 28, 2012 by  

Web Hosting ServicesMCLEAN, Va.– Commtouch®, a leading provider of cloud-based solutions for security companies and service providers, today announced that Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH, an Austrian-based provider of network security and virtualization software, integrated Commtouch antivirus and anti-spam technology into its Proxmox Mail Gateway solution.

Commtouch’s high-performance services complement the anti-spam/antivirus stack used in Proxmox Mail Gateway 3.0 that was launched August 3. Three unique technologies from Commtouch, including Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection, cloud-based Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD™) and GlobalView™ Mail Reputation Service, greatly expand the protection offered to Proxmox customers.

Proxmox Mail Gateway 3.0 enables businesses and individuals to protect their email servers against spam, viruses, Trojans and phishing emails. The Web-based and user friendly management allows IT administrators to easily control all functions, while an innovative Message Tracking Center merges all available logs of the email traffic.

“Proxmox is yet another example of an organization replacing legacy protection technologies with Commtouch’s innovative solutions that clearly stand out in the industry,” said Shlomi Yanai, CEO at Commtouch. “Our unique content-agnostic technology analyzes billions of emails in real-time, protecting against new outbreaks the moment they emerge. Additionally, our mail reputation service is based on a far-reaching view of worldwide Internet traffic, and it distinguishes in real-time between legitimate senders and spammers.”

“We’re pleased to select Commtouch’s Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection as part of our dual-engine support in Proxmox Mail Gateway,” said Martin Maurer, CEO of Proxmox. “Through the use of two engines, Proxmox customers benefit from the combination of traditional, signature-based scanning and Commtouch’s high-performance and cloud-based immediate scanning capabilities that don’t rely on signatures.”
