Montreal, QC - Jan 24, 2007 - Messaging Architects, a company specializing in the development of Email Security and Risk Management Applications and among the pioneers in developing intelligently layered technologies to combat spam, today announced the release of M+Guardian. Characterized by outstanding speed of message processing, ease of deployment, and the first product to derive from the Hula codebase, M+Guardian is a next-generation policy-based email firewall based upon a modular and extensible Email Risk Management platform designed to mitigate against current and future risks of enterprise collaboration.

M+Guardian continues Messaging Architects' multi-layered approach to email security at the gateway level by intelligently combining predictive and reactive technologies with cutting-edge filtering engines that offer real-time in-line scanning of inbound email, as well as flexible reputation filters applied to outbound email to meet corporate policies and compliance requirements pertaining to electronic records.

M+Guardian features a robust directory-enabled Policy Engine that facilitates the granular deployment of policies to address regulatory, technological, and security issues at a domain, group, or user level. M+Guardian also supports application-layer clustering: its components can be distributed across multiple servers to provide high availability of collaboration and load balancing required by organizations of all sizes.

Designed as a Fire-and-Forget solution for the modern enterprise, M+Guardian's fully automated, auto-updated messaging platform requires virtually no configuration, administration and fine-tuning, and starts protecting the collaboration system minutes after its deployment on the corporate network.

"We believe that M+Guardian is simply the fastest email scanner on the market that goes beyond being a spam filtering point solution and represents a highly scalable identity-driven platform," said Pierre Chamberland, CEO of Messaging Architects. "The Policy Engine solves a number of compliance and legal issues directly related to the nature of business email in addition to preventing security threats from impacting the organization and protecting corporate intellectual property and confidential information. The end result is a highly available and secure messaging and collaboration system which is guaranteed against future risks. Our plan is to use this performance to drive innovative edge services, such as content filtering, encryption, and enterprise search, all from within a simple to manage, directory-driven platform."


M+Guardian Extreme Firewall is available as a fully configured appliance. Pricing is subscription-based with a one-time server license. For details on academic pricing and volume discounts, please contact Messaging Architects at 1-866-497-0101.
