M86 Security Positioned in the Visionaries Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Secure Email Gateways

Evaluation Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2010) -  M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the research firm's annually published report on Secure Email Gateways (SEG).(1) The report evaluates 16 vendors, including M86's MailMarshal SMTP.

"The Secure e-mail Gateway market (previously called the 'e-mail security Boundary' by Gartner) is defined by solutions that provide enterprise Message Transfer Agent (MTA) capabilities, offer protection against inbound and outbound e-mail threats (such as spam, phishing attacks and malware), and satisfy outbound corporate and regulatory policy requirements. SEG solutions can be offered in the form of appliances or software located on customer premises, hosted solutions that reside in solution provider's datacenters or multitenancy Security as a Service ('SECSaaS') that exists in multiple data centers around the globe," says Gartner, Inc. in its report.

"We are pleased to be positioned as a Visionary in Gartner's Secure Email Gateways report," said William Kilmer, chief marketing officer, M86 Security. "Our messaging security solutions play a critical role in protecting organizations from email-based threats including Trojans, spyware, scareware, botnets and other malicious code. One of our key differentiators has been in offering customers enhanced threat protection that uses real-time behavioral analysis techniques to identify and block malware that has been specifically designed to avoid detection and penetrate the messaging gateway. This has helped protect enterprises from current problems such as blended threats and targeted attacks."

M86 MailMarshal SMTP provides organizations with a powerful email gateway solution which filters all email sent and received at the network perimeter. This valuable tool blocks incoming threats including spam, viruses, malware, malicious links and phishing attacks as well as preventing Denial of Service and Directory Harvesting attacks. At the same time, this advanced platform also monitors outbound messaging, enforcing Acceptable Use Policies and ensuring compliance with data leakage prevention policies. M86 MailMarshal SMTP also offers additional features for managing emails and their associated workflows. This allows organizations to manage their email environment above and beyond ensuring security.

M86 MailMarshal SMTP can be deployed as a standalone solution, or as a centrally managed distributed array designed to support even the largest networks.
