Marshal Security Appliance built upon MailMarshal SMTP software, offers customers the best of both worlds, combining all the advantages of appliances and software into a new generation of appliances.

Basingstoke, 24 April 2007 - - Secure email and Internet gateway security provider Marshal is broadening its security offerings with the announcement of a ‘new generation’ security appliance based on its market-leading MailMarshal SMTP software. The security appliance will form part of the rollout of Marshal’s Multi-Platform strategy, and will follow the launch of MailMarshal Service Provider Edition which allows customers to benefit from a hosted email security service through service providers.

Built on the same platform and policy engine as MailMarshal SMTP software, Marshal Security Appliance MailMarshal eIOOOO provides the identical functionality, flexibility and performance inherent in the SMTP software and is highly scalable for small to very large enterprise deployments. Marshal’s ‘new generation’ security appliance is unique in that it offers the best of both worlds: the security and ease of administration of an appliance combined with the flexibility and functionality of a software solution. In addition, Marshal’s array management technology permits system administrators to manage a large number of appliances across multiple locations from just one central point.

MailMarshal eIOOOO provides content protection as well as a defence against malware, making it ideal for companies that prefer the convenience of appliance hardware but require comprehensive content security at the gateway perimeter. More than just a point solution, the Marshal security appliance provides deep content inspection as well as protection against security threats including: spam, phishing, viruses, spyware, fraud, porn, DHA, DOS, regulatory non-compliance and intellectual property theft.

Ed Macnair, CEO of Marshal, comments: “This year will see us rolling out more new platforms to leverage our proven 10-year old software security products, including managed security services at the Internet level, followed by a web security appliance in the next twelve months. We believe that the Marshal security appliance represents a new generation of security appliances, because it combines the most scalable and easy to manage software on the market today: MailMarshal SMTP with the convenience of a ‘plug and play’ appliance. It’s basically the equivalent of buying a software product at Amazon and ticking the box for special gift-wrap delivery”.

Each MailMarshal eIOOOO is a hardened email processing platform that supports load balancing out of the box and is also pre-configured with an integrated anti-virus scanner. Using Marshal’s Array Manager, new appliances can be added and auto-configured from the central console quickly and easily.

MailMarshal eIOOOO is based on a Pentium 4 CPU with redundant hard drives, a Marshal MTA and a hardened operating system. The Marshal Array manager software requires: O/S - Windows 2000/XP/2003; Database - MSDE 2000 SP3a or later, SQL 2005 Express, Microsoft SQL Server 2000 SP3a or later or SQL Server 2005; and ASP .NET 1.1.
