Email security just got more interesting - modus(TM) 4.7 - Vircom partners with PGP to provide encryption for sensitive data

    MONTREAL, June 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Vircom, an award-winning e-mail
messaging security software company, has released a new version of their modus
line of products. New technology has been added to reduce both spam and
false-positives, both issues that can lead to considerable end-user
productivity loss. And with new legislation that calls for mandatory data
encryption of all personal information being implemented in several
jurisdictions, Vircom's integration with PGP Universal Gateway is key to being
compliant with laws that affect business conduct.
    "We are pleased with our new partnership. There are several benefits for
our customers" stated Jean-Marc Robillard, director of product management.
"they can purchase the integrated package through their channel sales
representative, or leverage their existing PGP encryption gateway if they
already have it, to centralize all their encryption requirements."
    With this new release, Vircom is also adding backscatter spam protection,
a redesigned end-user quarantine report that decreases junk mail management
overhead, and auto whitelisting, which ensures messages from trusted users
never becomes improperly categorized as spam, or false-positives.
    Jean-Marc added "Since spam levels continue to rise worldwide, we've
added foreign language support for our Sieve scripting engine, which controls
email policies, as well as optimized protection from blended threats such as
web url script injections"
    "Our reputation for being the leaders at what we do continues to grow"
said Mike Petsalis, COO "Our customer satisfaction rankings are consistently
the highest, and our PlatinumPlus remote monitoring service has become a
leading differentiator. It allows customers to offload their network
monitoring to Vircom, while they maintain direct control over their
site-specific settings"
    Vircom's modus 4.7 software, as well as their full line of appliances,
are available today. For a free 30-day software trial, visit the Vircom
