Policy Patrol 10 boosts email security

Red Earth Software has released Policy Patrol version 10, the latest version of its email security software for Microsoft Exchange Server. Policy Patrol 10 offers increased protection from email security risks with improved anti-phishing and integrated multi anti-malware scanning, along with an improved user interface and new dashboard.

Policy Patrol 10 includes a new real-time phishing block list, and can use DMARC policies when detecting spoofed emails in order to reduce the potential for email-based abuse. To boost protection against email-borne malware, Red Earth Software has teamed up with OPSWAT, the developers of Metascan technology.

With integrations to both Metascan on-premise and Metascan Online, Policy Patrol provides advanced threat protection by scanning email attachments with multiple (between 4 and 40) anti-malware engines, significantly increasing the malware detection rate.  Metascan technology can also provide attachment sanitization and file type verification, preventing zero-day and targeted attacks.

With the release of Policy Patrol version 10, Red Earth Software is now offering a free 10-user version of Policy Patrol Mail Security to provide small companies with robust protection for their Exchange Server. Customers can also obtain a free Metascan Online subscription to begin using multi-scanning as part of their email protection.

Mike Spykerman, CEO of Red Earth Software said: “With this new release of Policy Patrol, we are bringing email security to the next level. With increasingly sophisticated phishing and email malware attacks, defenses need to be one step ahead of the attackers. By partnering with OPSWAT for anti-malware protection and continually improving Policy Patrol’s anti-phishing technology, we are now able to provide our customers with significantly increased email protection.”
