WatchGuard Technologies, provider of business security solutions, has released a virtualized version of the WatchGuard Quarantine Management Server.

Capable of supporting both single and multiple domains for both internal and hosted deployment models, the WatchGuard QMS Virtual Edition is targeted at mid-sized organizations, enterprises and service providers. It can support e-mail quarantine requirements for organizations with up to 180,000 users or 20 million messages.
“E-mail continues to be a significant threat vector for most businesses around the world, and management of quarantined messages is critical to balancing security with productivity” said Mohit Puri, Country Manager, India & Saarc, WatchGuard Technologies. “By using the WatchGuard QMS Virtual Edition, customers can control their quarantined e-mail while further improving their network, data and application protection. Because the QMS Virtual Edition is free, total cost of ownership is dramatically improved.”
Used in conjunction with WatchGuard XCS content security appliances, the QMS Virtual Edition is an automated e-mail quarantine solution that allows electronic messages that contain unwanted content, such as spam, phishing attempts, viruses, malware or other messages to be directed and stored on a dedicated virtual quarantine appliance.
“By offloading spam quarantine resources to a separate system, the software reduces load and storage requirements on their XCS appliance or other e-mail security gateways, which results in stronger throughput, reduced administration and streamlined reporting. With it, organizations can ensure that end users do not lose legitimate messages, while keeping storage, processing and bandwidth requirements to a minimum,” explained Puri.
The software is available free of charge to all customers that purchase any WatchGuard XCS appliance on or after October 6, 2010. WatchGuard XCS customers with a valid LiveSecurity subscription can download it from the company website.
