Vexira Antivirus for Mail server is a content security application that provides scalable protection from viruses, spam, spyware, and other malicious applications. It can directly integrate with many e-mail systems or can act as its own SMTP relay server to shield the e-mail server itself from attack. It is specifically developed for high volume and high reliability for e-mail service providers and enterprises that require extended service and security levels along with best-of-breed technology.

Vexira Antivirus for Mail server is a worldwide leading enterprise-class Linux antivirus and antispam solution with more than 200 million mailboxes already under its protection in over 100 different countries.

Vexira offers:

  • Antivirus, antispam, antispyware and e-mail policy in a single application: Vexira provides comprehensive protection in a single application framework to defend today's businesses and schools from attack. Five different checks are performed on e-mail: File Gate, File Filter, Field Filter, Virus Filter and Spam Filter.

  • Mission critical architecture: Vexira is built for organizations where e-mail is a critical component to the operation. Vexira includes a purposefully developed "watchdog" to monitor the e-mail operation and restart a failed service and send automatic alerts to system administrators. Several technologies are within Vexira to ensure the virus protection is fully functional at all times.

  • Per-user and per-domain configuration: Each user or domain owner can have specific configurations and rule sets. Vexira contains robust and highly scalable LDAP support.

  • Automatic virus, spyware and spam database upgrading: Fully automatic virus and spam database updating is supported using either FTP or HTTP protocols.

  • Statistical spam learning with custom rules: Vexira can be configured to learn e-mail content and determine what is spam and what is not. Custom rules can easily be added to the database by the System Administrator or through Vexira's internal auto-learn technology.

  • Maximum configuration: Vexira contains over 350 unique options that can be configured and tailored to meet the most challenging installations.
