Internet Security Systems enhances protection platform with e-mail security appliance.

Internet Security Systems, Inc. have introduced the Proventia Network Mail Security System, the company's first security appliance dedicated solely to protecting an organisation's messaging infrastructure. Unlike existing e-mail security solutions that tend to focus only on anti-spam technology, the new ISS solution offers comprehensive, pre-emptive protection against messaging threats through industry-leading intrusion prevention system (IPS) technology and the patented ISS Virus Prevention System (VPS).

The appliance inspects the content of each e-mail that enters an organisation at multiple levels, ensuring 98 per cent effectiveness in spam blocking. It claims to be the only solution on the market that includes the unique Virus Prevention System technology from ISS, which assesses the behaviour of network traffic. While it is widely estimated that 80 to 90 per cent of the world's incoming e-mail traffic is spam, companies are recognising that anti-spam technology alone is not enough to prevent their messaging infrastructures from being shut down by attackers, used to infiltrate other parts of the network or even harvested for users personal information.
