anti-spam software Reading Time: 2 minutes

Comodo announced the release of Comodo Antispam Gateway (CASG) 1.2, an advanced email filtering solution that frees employee inboxes of junk mail glut.

Ideally suited for small to mid-size businesses that host their own email servers, CASG is a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) that can be configured and managed from any Internet-connected web browser. CASG quarantines messages that were determined to be spam or scanned positive for virus attachments, stopping annoying and malicious threats from reaching a user’s email.

CASG uses the Mail Exchanger (MX) records in a user’s domain record to direct all senders to Comodo’s software service first, intercepting spam and virus-laden email before it reaches the corporate mail server. Messages that are clean or whose senders are whitelisted are then passed to the user’s original mail server address and on to the business’ email users. Messages flagged as spam are quarantined in Comodo’s service for users to review from time to time as needed.

With the Comodo Antispam Gateway, we are extending Comodo’s protection from the endpoint right to the greatest source of threats to business users,” said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo’s CEO and chief security architect. “Joined with Comodo’s unique combination of default deny protection, auto-sandboxing and other business security technology is proving to be a far more effective in providing overall lnternet security, and with CASG we’re offering an anti-spam gateway that puts this same approach to work for small to mid-size businesses that host their own email servers.

CASG enhances productivity of employees and reduces load on mail servers along with providing ease-of-use and configuration innovations. Comodo Anti-spam Gateway offers an intuitive web-based management console that enables administrators to quickly add domains and set up users. This web-based gateway solution requires no expensive appliance or hardware on-site or custom server software installation, integration or maintenance. Comodo offers 24×7 monitoring and priority phone support for this service.

Comodo Antispam Gateway is priced at 50-cents per mailbox per month. It can be subscribed for single domain or multiple domains as used by the business and for bundled quantities of email users, cumulative of the domains.
