Apptix Launches Hosted Email Defense

 (Ping! Zine) – Apptix has announced the availability of two new email security and anti-spam solutions for on-premise email systems: Apptix Email Defense with Continuity and Apptix Perimeter Email Defense. While both products are hosted, they are designed to protect in-house email servers with top-to-bottom spam and virus protection or supplement existing email protection solutions.

“By blocking known spammers and potentially harmful email traffic at the perimeter, Apptix’s new email defense solutions quickly pay for themselves by eliminating up to 80% of spam traffic being delivered to corporate email systems, not to mention protecting the company from devastating email attacks,” said James Bond, Vice President of Product and Software Development for Apptix. “Message continuity ensures employees can maintain email communications if internal email systems are ever down. This is email protection that no company should be without, and the Apptix solutions can be deployed and protecting systems in minutes with no start up or equipment costs.”

Apptix Perimeter Email Defense is designed for businesses looking to supplement or reduce the load on existing on-premise anti-spam solutions and better protect against email attacks such as Directory Harvest Attacks (DHAs) or Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. The service filters inbound IP traffic based on real-time blacklisting to prevent potentially harmful messages from ever reaching the corporate network.

Apptix Email Defense with Continuity is a complete, full-server email security suite. The solution includes the capabilities of Apptix Perimeter Email Defense plus full spam protection policies and message continuity in the event of an outage – planned or not. It protects communications systems through proven spam filters, leading anti-virus engines, content filtering, and fraud detection.

In the event of an outage, ongoing email exchanges are queued securely off-site for up to 60 days and automatically synced with the on-premise system once service is restored. Emails can be sent or received and stored messages accessed via a secure Web portal. This allows employees to continue emailing while IT administrators perform maintenance on in-house systems.

Apptix Email Defense with Continuity starts at $1.95 per month per user, while Apptix Perimeter Email Defense starts at just $1 per month per user. Both products are available now at
