Amid End-of-Life for McAfee SaaS Email Protection and Archiving, Leading IaaS Provider Vows ‘Seamless Transition’
LOS ANGELES (June 22, 2016) – Leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider Infinitely Virtual today announced a new best-in-class email protection and archiving solution, powered by Proofpoint Essentials™, from market leader Proofpoint. The new offering effectively replaces McAfee SaaS Email Protection and Archiving, now undergoing end-of-life phase-out.
Proofpoint, an innovative security-as-a-service vendor, delivers data protection solutions that help organizations protect their data from attack and enable them to effectively meet the complex and evolving regulatory compliance and data governance mandates arising from highly publicized data breaches. Infinitely Virtual’s new anti-spam offering, powered by Proofpoint Essentials, provides a comprehensive defense against today’s email threats for small and mid-size businesses.
“All good things come to an end, but they’re occasionally followed by even better things,” said Adam Stern, CEO, Infinitely Virtual. “The Intel/McAfee end-of-life phase-out has enabled us to greatly enhance our offering in email security. For our existing customers, the transition will be seamless and the solution even better than its predecessor.”
Well in advance of the announced phase-out of McAfee, Infinitely Virtual surveyed the marketplace and tested a battery of IaaS/SaaS anti-spam products. Proofpoint Essentials harnesses the capabilities of Proofpoint’s enterprise security technology and infrastructure, used by some of the world’s largest and most security conscious companies, and combines this with expert knowledge and understanding of the needs of the smaller enterprise.
“We recognize that in order to address today’s advanced email security requirements, an effective email solution requires accurate threat detection, an IaaS infrastructure that offers control and flexibility and proven methods of keeping business email up and running 24x7x365,” Stern said.
Proofpoint Essentials enhances security with spam and phishing detection, multi-layer anti-virus, a robust filter rules engine, email continuity with emergency inbox, policy-enforced encryption, an email archive based in the cloud and managed in a simple and intuitive user interface. Proofpoint Essentials leverages a variety of techniques for its approach:
o Advanced protection against malicious URLs and attachments
o Secure sensitive data leaving the organization
o Intelligent content filtering
o Search and eDiscovery cloud email archive
o Redeliver any inbound email lost or deleted in the last 30 days
o Protection of social media properties from spam and malware
o Emergency inbox for 24/7 email continuity.
o Image-scanning technology to remove illicit images
