What’s new in the latest version of GFI MailEssentials?
Released: January 14, 2016
You asked, we delivered! GFI MailEssentials 20, the award winning anti-spam and email security solution, keeps on getting better through a set of major advancements:
Anti-spam multithreading for improved email throughput
The advantage of a multithreaded program is that it can operate faster on computer systems that have multiple or multicore CPUs, or across a cluster of machines. Using this multithreaded approach, GFI MailEssentials supports a substantially faster email throughput with lower resource consumption.
x64-bit backend and action services processing
64-bit is required for GFI MailEssentials to process high email volume environments more efficiently. The services that would benefit most from this change are the backend services, which handle both quarantine and reporting stores as well as Action Services service.
Remote Active Directory (AD) support
GFI MailEssentials can now be installed on non-AD machines such as IIS SMTP or Edge servers leveraging Active Directory even though it is not locally available.
Information store scanning support for Exchange 2013 and later using Exchange Web Services
This feature allows Microsoft Exchange 2013 (and later) users to leverage information store scanning, in order to scan for malware via Exchange Web Services (EWS).
Exchange 2016, Windows 10 and Office 2016 platform support
GFI is committed to remain abreast with and support Microsoft’s latest technologies. Therefore, this release of GFI MailEssentials is shipping with full support for Exchange 2016, Windows 10 as well as Office 2016.
The above features further equip GFI MailEssentials to better cater for larger environments and MSPs who process large quantities of emails. Not only does the product scale to the volume of mail flow processed but does so seamlessly in the diverse environments it is deployed to.
