(The Hosting News) – OPSWAT, provider of solutions to secure and manage IT infrastructure, today announced the release of the new Mail Agent for Microsoft Exchange Server for their multi-anti-malware scanning and threat prevention product Metascan®. The Mail Agent is a result of OPSWAT¹s recent acquisition of Red Earth Software, developer of email security solutions for Exchange Server. The new Mail Agent now extends OPSWAT¹s advanced threat protection technology to email-borne threats.
A recent survey by OPSWAT uncovered that more than half of respondents experienced a malware breach via email in the last 18 months. With email being a major source of malware, the Metascan Mail Agent is an important addition in helping organizations protect themselves against advanced threats.
