Kaspersky Labs virus scanning technology is integrated into the Policy Patrol e-mail monitoring system

8th May 2003 – Kaspersky Labs, an international data security software developer and Red Earth Software http://www.redearthsoftware.com , an US-based company specialising in the development of e-mail processing software, announce a mutual partnership agreement paving the way for the implementation of Kaspersky Labs anti-virus scanner technology into e-mail monitoring system of Red Earth’s program Policy Patrol.

Policy Patrol is a complete e-mail monitoring system for Microsoft Exchange Server and Lotus Domino e-mail gateways. Red Earth’s software solutions include a wide range of valuable add-on features for extending the functionality of enterprise-wide e-mail processing systems: anti-spam, virus checking, keyword filtering, attachment blocking, disclaimers, signatures and many more e-mail management options.

Policy Patrol’s functionality has now been significantly enhanced thanks to the integration of Kaspersky Anti-Virus, one of the most effective and highly productive solutions for detecting malicious programs. The users of Policy Patrol can now find and neutralise viruses, network worms, and Trojan programs in all incoming and outgoing e-mail messages. Kaspersky Anti-Virus technology also scans all attached files (including archived and compressed files), OLE-objects and message body text. Now, Policy Patrol users are ensured comprehensive and dependable e-mail filtration.

“Our cooperation with Kaspersky Labs enables us to extensively raise the level of security provided to Policy Patrol users. The combined use of our technology for e-mail correspondence and the anti-virus scanner created by an acknowledged expert in the field of computer security, provides Red Earth Software customers with a means that efficiently detects and neutralises infected messages”, said Mike Spykerman, CEO of Red Earth Software.

“At the present time, e-mail accounts for more than 90% of all registered computer virus infections. For this very reason it is hard to overstate the importance of protecting computer network e-mail gateways – the singular entry point of malicious programs”, commented Natalya Kaspersky, Kaspersky Labs CEO. “Kaspersky Anti-Virus contains all the latest anti-virus technologies, all of which have been integrated with the Policy Patrol system, allowing our new partner to comprehensively protect the users of its software against e-mail viruses.”
