Spam and virus shields beefed up
Version 3.5 of MailFrontier Gateway comes with new Time Zero technology to block viruses when they first hit the network. The product also fights spam and phishing.
MailFrontier senior director Gleb Budman said a big challenge was the gap between a virus breaking out (time zero) and a signature becoming available to block it - a delay of anything between four and 24 hours.
"Once in place the signatures work well, but the problem is that enterprises are open and unprotected during that whole stretch," said Budman.
