Engate’s Innovative SMTP Protocol Security Boundary Technologies Empower Vendors to Stop Malicious Email Outside the Corporate Network

SAN JOSE, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Engate(TM) Technology Corporation, the premier supplier of next generation reputation-based connection management solutions, today announced the general availability of Engate MailSentinel(TM) to solution providers and original equipment manufacturers of routers, firewalls and email gateways. The Engate solution empowers vendors to differentiate themselves by integrating SMTP Connection Management and email boundary security into their existing product offerings, delivering the industry’s highest level of accuracy that eliminates >98% of unwanted commercial email (UCE) with a false positive rate of less than .0002%.

Engate’s unique approach to SMTP Connection Management delivers unprecedented threat protection by extending the security boundary away from the enterprise network application layer, and into the network infrastructure. By implementing email security at the SMTP protocol level, embedded within network devices, firewall-like rules can be executed on highly optimized packet processors allowing email transactions to be monitored and delivery rules to be enforced before messages are actually sent. Engate’s SMTP Connection Management is a superior technology that applies proactive message validation by concentrating on the sender’s behavior and reputation at the connection level. Engate is differentiated by operating totally at the SMTP protocol layer, eliminating the need to accept, analyze and store unwanted and malicious email. Unwanted content is stopped at its source, prior to transmission, reducing the use of expensive network bandwidth, unnecessary filtering and storage of millions of unwanted email messages.

“Engate has successfully tested and deployed SMTP Connection Management on numerous, industry-leading network devices and Linux based CPUs,” said Wil Cochran, CEO, Engate. “For the first time ever, solution providers and OEMs have the opportunity to significantly enhance their current product portfolios and strengthen their position in the email security market by uniquely identifying and eliminating threats at the connection level with unparalleled scalability and reliability.”

Operating with or without disk drives, Engate’s SMTP Connection Management technology can either be embedded within a router or firewall, or as an application within email servers or other security appliances. Engate empowers solution providers and equipment manufacturers to realize unprecedented benefits:

* Achieve threat protection at speeds and accuracy unmatched by today’s content filters with high reliability, nearly immeasurable percentages of false positives, and elimination of user-managed quarantining.

* Improve operating expenses associated with email security and technical improvement through the use of leading edge protocol testing and source reputation validation.

* Reinforce market lead with innovative connection management architectures that deliver preemptive SMTP security protection against new and evolving threats.

* Exploit new market opportunities by offering innovative solutions that deliver protocol-level message security that is extensible to Internet communications beyond email, such as voice and messaging.
