Mailspect Defense Embeds F-PROT Antivirus Plug-In Into Its Control Panel

Tarrytown, New York, August 15, 2011 – RAE Internet Inc., the developer of the Mailspect Defense, announced the release of a new version its email security software today. The new release fully integrates F-PROT Anti-virus ‘Fire & Ice’ into Mailspect Defense and its Control Panel. The Control Panel is designed for email administrators at enterprises, managed service providers, educational institutions and governments. It controls and cleans the email stream at the gateway or mail server levels during the pre-scan or queue, scan, and post-scan or queue phases. Previously, Mailspect Defense offered (1) one click installation, (2) automatic updating of virus signatures and (3) analytics for the Clamd, ESET and Sophos computer virus scanning engines. Now, Mailspect has expanded its offering to include the F-PROT Antivirus engine on Linux, Unix and OS X.

“We added F-PROT ‘Fire & Ice’ because it is a good deal for our ISP, education, government and enterprise customers. It is priced substantially below other vendors and offers comparable performance levels as evidence by its many VB100 certifications. Plus we have more and more customers who are on the OS X operating system, and they need world class antivirus protection.”, said Paul L. Sterne, President, RAE Internet Inc., dba Mailspect and Match My Email.
