GFI Software™ today announced the release of GFI MailEssentials 2014 R2, adding major enhancements to the company’s award-winning comprehensive email security solution.

GFI MailEssentials 2014 provides small and mid-sized (SMB) organizations with new virus, malware and spam detection capabilities.

All GFI MailEssentials users are able to take advantage of BitDefender  and ThreatTrack VIPRE anti-virus (AV) engines to detect email-borne pathogens. For even greater protection, users may also subscribe to additional AV services from McAfee, Kaspersky and now, Germany-based Avira. With Avira powered AV detection now at their disposal, administrators can deploy the best combination of AV engines they feel will provide their organization with the most complete detection capabilities possible.
