Security Gateway 6.5 – With Improved Attachment Handling & Database Support

If you’re in charge of managing your company’s email, whether you’re running an in-house Exchange server or Office 365, you’ve certainly become all too familiar with the latest threats posed by cybercriminals – threats that go far beyond the old-school Nigerian Prince email scam that has become the brunt of jokes over the past couple of decades. So if protecting your employees from email-borne scams is important to you & your business, a secure email gateway to protect against phishing, malware, data leaks and other threats would be a sound investment.

If you’re looking for email security solution that will block the most spam, viruses, and phishing threats, with user-friendly email traffic reports, email archiving, and Data Leak Prevention (DLP) at a price that’s affordable for small businesses, consider Security Gateway for Email Servers.

Announcing Security Gateway 6.5!

This week, we released Security Gateway 6.5, with improved attachment handling and external database support.

Macro Detection in Office Documents

Cybercriminals often use macros in email attachments to spread malware. In Security Gateway 6.5, the Cyren Antivirus engine can be configured to detect macros in Microsoft Office documents and flag them as infected.

Improved Handling of Restricted Attachments

Messages sent from Microsoft Outlook in Rich Text format are sent with an embedded file containing formatting data. Receiving email clients that do not understand this data may display it as a Winmail.dat attachment. To prevent users from bypassing the restricted attachments list by attaching restricted file types to rich text emails, SecurityGateway can now look inside Winmail.dat attachments for restricted file.

Security Gateway can now also scan RAR archives for restricted attachments.

External Database Support

Security Gateway installs with its own embedded Firebird database, however, in the latest release, administrators can configure Security Gateway to use an external Firebird database for improved performance.

Other Improvements

These are just the highlights. Additional features include email archive journal reports plus enhancements to manage archive and Sieve scripts via the API. You can read the full list of new features here in the release notes, or download your free trial to begin protecting your business against the latest threats!

Announcing MDaemon 19.5 – With Redesigned Mobile Webmail & More!

The news is out. There’s a new version of MDaemon Email Server, with new features and improvements to benefit both administrators and end-users alike!

New Features for Administrators

Centralized Management of Email Client Signatures

Most businesses follow certain custom branding practices in their email communications, but inevitably there will be those end users who have not updated their email signature to adhere to these branding practices, introducing inconsistencies in the company’s branding image. To help businesses maintain consistent branding and appearance of company email, MDaemon administrators can now configure default and per-domain email client signatures that are personalized for each user and pushed to supported email clients (MDaemon Webmail and MDaemon Connector for Outlook).

Both plain-text and HTML signatures are supported, and macros can be used (here’s a handy macro reference guide) to automatically populate various fields from the user’s account. You can even add images and links!

When using MDaemon Remote Administration, adding signatures is made even easier using the available editing and formatting tools. You can even add your company logo by simply dragging the image into the window.

Macro Detection in Email Attachments

Cybercriminals often attach Microsoft Office files containing malicious macros to their spam & phishing email messages. They then use social engineering to try to trick the user into opening the attachment (which may be disguised as an invoice, payment receipt or legal document) and enabling macros. From there, the macro goes right to work, unleashing malware that can take down your network, or ransomware that can take days to remove, costing your businesses thousands of dollars in lost revenue.

To help prevent these attachments from reaching users, MDaemon Antivirus has a new setting to detect macros in documents scanned by Cyren AV and flag them as infected for further review by the administrator.
