GWAVA, a company focused to provide best solutions to the Novell GroupWise community and to meet the unique needs of GroupWise organizations, has released the latest version of WASP 2, spam and anti-virus solution.
GWAVA affirms that the latest version of WASP includes more detailed control of content filtering and a new user notification system making users to enjoy the flexibility of the internet to access their important messaging information.
WASP2, (Web Access Server Protection version 2), is a content scanner which hooks into the WebAccess servlet, working between the message composition interface of WebAccess and the WebAccess agent. Its unique architecture ensures that virus-infected attachments are stopped at the WebAccess gateway before they are allowed to enter GroupWise system.
WASP 2 uses cross-platform and runs natively on NetWare and Linux and in remote scanning mode for Windows. Native Windows support is planned in conjunction with upgrades to GWAVA 4 (spam and anti-virus for the GroupWise client). 
It even has Multiple Anti-Virus engine support and can be installed without any additional hardware.
"Organizations that rely heavily on GroupWise Web Access will appreciate the re-designed interface and new user notification system," said Taylor Cochrane, director of Product Development at GWAVA.
He further added, "The interface is very similar to Reload and Retain and offers all the flexibility of GWAVA 4 in regard to content filtering of attachments, and email text. The notification system is very descriptive, so users understand exactly what is happening during the scanning and quarantine process."
