“We are excited to bring our many years of email security expertise and management to offer customers and channel partners a new cloud service without the need for them to make expensive hardware and infrastructure investments,” said Kevin Beatty, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “By adding this new service, expanding our DLP features and integrating archiving without increasing the cost of the product, we continue to offer customers unmatched value.”
In the early to mid nineties, our founder and CEO Arvel Hathcock recognized the need for a less expensive, easier to manage alternative to Microsoft Exchange Server for small-to-medium businesses. With solid programming skills and an entrepreneurial spirit, he created the MDaemon Email Server and launched Alt-N Technologies.
Through word of mouth among IT professionals and with the help of great channel partners, the popularity of MDaemon spread to customers across the globe. Over the years and in various geographies, the product name became more recognized than Alt-N Technologies. To better leverage the name recognition that had been built over the many years of MDaemon email server popularity, the company was renamed to MDaemon Technologies in January of 2018.
Helping the World Communicate
From the introduction of Webmail in 1997 and instant messaging in 2001, to support for third-party XMPP chat clients in 2016, MDaemon has helped improved communication for businesses in over 90 countries.
Focused on Security
Alongside these communication features came enhancements in security. IP Shielding, which is used to help prevent spoofing by blocking messages from unauthorized IP addresses, was introduced in 1996 before MDaemon even had version numbers (for some great historical information, check out the Ancient-History.txt file located inside the MDaemon/Docs directory). Relay control was added the following year, with many new security features added with each new release. In 2005, MDaemon became the first Windows-based email server to offer DKIM (Domainkeys Identified Mail) as a new tool in the fight against spoofing. And to address the growing need to protect confidential data and meet growing regulations in health care, finance, and other industries, email encryption with OpenPGP was added in 2015.
Sharing & Collaboration
MDaemon’s collaboration tools have evolved over the years as well. Instant messaging was added in 2001, followed by shared calendars and groupware in 2002 and 2003. Scheduling meetings with multiple attendees was made easier by the addition of free/busy in 2006.
As business communication needs evolve, so does MDaemon, with new features on the way for 2019. If you’d like to be among the first to benefit, follow us on twitter for the latest news & product updates.
As we continue to bring awareness to these threats, new ones emerge almost daily. In the past three months, a cyber-espionage group known as Seedworm (aka MuddyWater) has used spear-phishing attacks to infect 131 individuals with the Powermuddy backdoor (a new variant of their Powermud backdoor). Once a system has been compromised, this malware runs a tool that steals passwords from a user’s browser and email, often leading to access to the victim’s email and social media accounts.
Protect Yourself from the Latest Threats
Over the years, I’ve posted many times about phishing, spear-phishing, and other threats, with a variety of suggestions for protecting yourself and your business from becoming the next victim. Throughout these posts (from oldest to newest), you’ll find lots of tips to avoid being tricked by these email-borne scams.
As the threat landscape continues to evolve, businesses of all sizes must maintain awareness of the latest email-borne threats and educate staff at all levels, from entry level to C-suite. After all, without the right tools and procedures in place, it only takes one misguided mouse click to damage a business’ reputation or send it into bankruptcy.
As hurricane Florence threatens the east coast with high winds, heavy rainfall and flooding, businesses could potentially lose access to critical communication services. When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and Louisiana last year, we offered free temporary assistance for those without email services. For those affected by Florence, we are again here to help. We’re offering affected businesses free temporary email hosting using your existing domain or temporary email accounts on our hosted webmail platform.
