New MessageNet offering helps protect systems from virusses and spam.


MessageNet, a company specialising in electronic messaging and Internet security, has launched e:)scan, a new content-managed Internet service for UK companies. The e:)scan service, which is designed to protect systems from viruses, spamming, offensive and libellous materials and large file attachments, is undertaken remotely via MessageNet's data centres in Reading and Docklands in the UK. The service is designed to free up wasted bandwidth and disc space as well as save time, hardware and software costs incurred through useless or damaging content on an organisation's e-mailing systems. e:)scan can be used with a range of e-mail software, including Microsoft Exchange, Hewlett Packard OpenMail, Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise, and is offered in three different modules, standard, advanced and archiving. The service is available immediately in the UK and will be available in France and Germany later in 1999. No fee structure was disclosed.
