WASP from GWAVA provides first Anti-Virus protection for Novell GroupWise

23 June 2004

GWAVA, the leading provider of Novell GroupWise® eSecurity software solutions, today announced the release and availability of WASP, the only anti-virus tool that’s specifically designed to protect Novell GroupWise WebAccess.

WASP provides a unique solution by scanning for email-born viruses that enter a GroupWise system through the WebAccess Gateway. WASP has been developed to interact with up to four 3rd party Anti-virus vendor software products. Thus, ensuring WebAccess is just as protected from the infiltration of viruses as the rest of the GroupWise system would be.

“WebAccess is used by millions of GroupWise users around the world.” said Charles Taite, CTO and Co-founder of GWAVA, “WASP protects GroupWise from users inadvertently uploading a virus -infected attachment from an infected machine.”

Millions of machines around the world are infected with Viruses. WebAccess can be accessed from these machines across the Internet. This allows a user to connect directly into their GroupWise mailbox, bypassing any anti-virus protection that is deployed at the perimeter.

Today’s viruses move fast. They sneak in through email attachments, web downloads, free email accounts, and instant messages. GWAVA is the only company that protects GroupWise from the inside out from virus attacks with their market leading multiple layer defenses with GWAVA 3, Guinevere, and GWAVIX and now with WASP, WebAccess Anti-Virus protection.

WASP retails for $6 per user for non-GWAVA customers, or $3 a user for existing GWAVA customers. For more information on how to purchase WASP, contact your nearest GWAVA reseller or call 1-514-639-4850. To download a free 30-day trial, visit
