Openwave Messaging Launches RazorGate® 5 Providing Enhanced Messaging Security for Service Providers and Enterprises
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Messaging Inc., the leading global provider of innovative
messaging software solutions, announced today RazorGate®
5, a next generation security offering that provides world-class
messaging security and protection from spam, viruses, malware and other
attacks. With RazorGate® 5, Openwave (News - Alert) Messaging's security solution
addresses both the Service Provider and Enterprise markets by delivering
a complete set of security features and the flexibility of a cloud
offering, an on-premise software solution, or an appliance that can
install in front of and protect any email solution.
Designed from the outset to protect users and organizations from the
threat of Internet-based messaging attacks, RazorGate® 5 combines
edge-security techniques and the industry's lowest
total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) with traffic management, anti-virus,
anti-spam and anti-malware technologies.
RazorGate® 5 introduces two powerful features; the new Policy Engine and
the new Unified Management Console (UMC). The Policy Engine allows
administrators to define policies that determine how messages are
handled, and how mail flows are created and managed. Scripting
techniques take into consideration message characteristics, such as
mssage origin, timestamp and content to dynamically check messages and
discard those determined to contain spam and harmful content. The UMC
helps administrators create the environment they need to closely monitor
their networks and deliver maximum protection for their user population
and network infrastructure.
Security dangers are still very real challenges for messaging providers.
Messaging security solutions that address and protect a provider's
messaging systems and network infrastructure are essential. Gartner
states that despite the market maturity, companies can't do without SEG
(Secure Email Gateway (News - Alert)) solutions. Global spam volumes declined again
slightly in 2012 as spammers moved to other mediums, such as social
networks, but spam still represents as much as 69% of email. Phishing
and malware attachments also declined slightly in 2012; however, there
is ample evidence that email is the preferred channel to launch advanced
targeted attacks. (Gartner's (News - Alert) "Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways,"
published in July 2013 and written by Peter Firstbrook and Brian Lowans.)
"Our priority is to develop software that allows our customers to focus
on their business and not worry about the security of their messaging
environment and network infrastructure," said Dave Ratner, president and
CEO, Openwave Messaging. "Messaging security continues to be a big
concern. We want to help our customers reduce their overall business
risk. RazorGate® 5 delivers a security solution that eliminates more
than 99% of messaging-based security threats."
Available February 2014, RazorGate® 5 is offered as a cloud offering, an
on-premise software solution, or an appliance that can sit in front of
and protect any email solution.
