June 05, 2006 - 12:00

London, UK – GFI Software, an international leader and developer of network security, content security and messaging software, announced today that GFI MailSecurity 10 is now available. The latest version features a new antivirus engine, GRISOFT AVG, guaranteeing a higher detection rate and faster response to new viruses, and RSS quarantine feeds, providing more convenient quarantine monitoring.

The addition of GRISOFT AVG Antivirus brings a company with 15 years of experience in the antivirus industry, employing some of the world's leading experts in antivirus software, specifically in the areas of virus analysis and detection. GRISOFT AVG adds to the already extensive library of BitDefender, Kaspersky, McAfee and Norman, increasing the number of virus scanning engines to five. With five antivirus engines, GFI MailSecurity 10 has access to the most up-to-date virus signature updates from any vendor and will disseminate them the quickest, providing users with the best approach to detect and neutralize viruses, worms, trojans and other malware before they enter into the corporate network.

"Today it isn't just the virus engine technology which differentiates between vendors; rather, it is the team – the people – behind the virus definition files. Speedy reaction is key in identifying a virus, producing the virus signature and releasing it to the customer," said David Vella, Product Manager, GFI MailSecurity. "By having multiple virus engines we have different reaction times from each team. Like that, our customers will be always protected by the antivirus vendor team which delivers the signature files first in case of such virus outbreaks." 

RSS feeds for quarantine
RSS feeds are now available with GFI MailSecurity 10, automatically notifying administrators of quarantined email through their RSS reader. Administrators can monitor their quarantine without having to login to the quarantine console; instead, administrators are notified of quarantined email through RSS feeds. This ability significantly reduces the amount of time administrators spend by automatically updating them on email quarantine status.

Any company purchasing or upgrading to GFI MailSecurity 10 up till September 30 will receive free GRISOFT AVG Antivirus updates for one year (after the purchase date). For more information about our Exchange Server Email Security solution, go to
