24 April 2013

GWAVA announces the release of GWAVA messaging security version 6.5.

This latest release of GWAVA includes the all new URL Filtering and Web Content Filtering which monitors incoming and outgoing internet traffic, including URL filtering, social media, search filtering and monitoring.

“Filtering and monitoring Facebook and Twitter is critical functionality for our education and government customers,” said Ken Muir, Chief Executive Officer of GWAVA. “The ability for schools and government to monitor key words that students and employees are using in Facebook and Twitter and on the internet helps prevent potentially harmful situations before they occur. GWAVA is also built to alert administrators about harmful and inappropriate conversations and photos.”

GWAVA Web Content filtering and URL filtering provides the ability for organizations to monitor, filter and block HTTP traffic. GWAVA integrates with compatible ICAP systems and scans HTTP traffic to prevent access based on URL category, reputation, corporate policy and file type, including hidden executable and malignant files. This GWAVA functionality provides the ability to filter content from individual sites. This filtering allows good content, while preventing inappropriate content from any given site, from Facebook or from Twitter.

GWAVA also provides a powerful messaging ‘black and white’ list which empowers end users and reduces administration costs for messaging systems. Additionally, GWAVA provides protection from Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed DoS (DDoS) attacks and support for PostgreSQL. These additional features add to the already extensive protection offered by GWAVA.

The GWAVA Messaging Security solution protects vital and casual electronic business communications for thousands of organizations in industries such as government, education, financial services, healthcare and business. With these latest additions to GWAVA, organizations now have a total solution to prevent viruses, spam, malware, illicit images, social media filtering, inappropriate content and URLs in addition to protection from DoS/DDoS attacks.
