GWAVA Announces GWAVA 5 Anti-Virus Anti-Spam Email Security

Email security product uses Kaspersky AV to combat increasing threats by cyber criminals

1 February 2011

GWAVA, Inc. announces the release of GWAVA 5, the latest version of its premiere anti-virus and anti-spam solution for email systems. GWAVA 5 is designed to defend against increasingly sophisticated threats posed by multi-national crime rings using email and botnets to steal computing power, corporate data and intellectual property.

To combat these threats, GWAVA 5 uses Kaspersky Lab’s anti-virus software as well as award winning anti-spam technology that protects messaging systems at multiple layers, beginning at the gateway.

Sophisticated viruses are being crafted by multi-national organizations to embed spam engines within an organization’s network. These spam generators then gain control of employees’ computers, turning them into zombie machines, and jeopardize the reputation of the host system. Many of these viruses are introduced via email.

Using a fully-integrated combination of anti-virus technology from Kaspersky and GWAVA’s own proven anti-spam technology, GWAVA 5 offers full protection against these types of attacks.

“The threat from cyber criminals is not going away,” said Richard Bliss, Senior Vice President for GWAVA. “Each year we are seeing increased sophistication in the attacks against corporations and organizations of all sizes. Email and collaboration security can no longer be treated as a commodity. There is too much at stake.”

Additions to the GWAVA 5 product include support for Linux, Windows and Novell OES. GWAVA 5 supports Microsoft Exchange as well as Novell GroupWise, Lotus Notes, and other platforms such as Zimbra.

GWAVA has expanded its reporting functionality and administrator alerts. The sophisticated browser-based user interface is streamlined with an expanded statistics monitoring dashboard. Performance enhancements for the newly released GWAVA 5 include optimizations for the SMTP scanner, anti-virus engine, spam engine and LDAP.
