Vircom Launches Today Its Exchange Valority Partner Program at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference

New Program Will Appeal to Channel Partners Focused on Microsoft Exchange by Providing Them a Means to Increase Value for Their Customers While Demonstrating a Better TCO

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 8, 2005 -- Vircom Inc., developer of secure email management solutions, announced today the launch of its Exchange Valority Partner Program at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Minneapolis.

Less means more

By eliminating undeliverable emails, malicious attacks such as virus and phishing, and filtering spam without the involvement of any Exchange Server, a ModusGate appliance relieves the messaging infrastructure of as much as 75% of its traffic, improving its stability, thus customer confidence, and freeing customer budget for value-added services and infrastructure upgrades.

The holistic design of the Windows-based ModusGate appliance has been independently recognized for its exceptional handling of the commodity tasks of unwanted content elimination, while providing a platform for channel partners to provide value-added services such as outsourced server management, branding customization, policy compliance enforcement and business process automation and integration.

This value is only achievable by pushing the email filtering tasks to a high-performance perimeter device, while keeping its manageability consistent with the Microsoft training certification of the channel partner.

One to show, one to go

The Exchange Valority Partner Program includes a promotional sign-up offer where a channel partner gets a free ModusGate appliance for demo purposes when he purchases the first unit when signing up with the program.

Enforce, eliminate, encrypt - E3SMTP™

ModusGate, as part of Vircom's Modus family of solutions, offers a holistic approach to email security, securing both the email and its network environment with its E3SMTP method - Enforce, Eliminate and Encrypt. ModusGate enforces corporate policies with its customizable Sieve scripting engine, eliminates email-borne threats and annoyances like viruses, malwares, spam, fraud and harvesting attempts, and finally encrypts the communication channel to ensure privacy and regulatory compliance.

Hardened OS

ModusGate's high-level security is obtained through the use of a hardened version of Windows, locking the appliance's operating system to be exclusively configured for email security, stripped down of any service unnecessary to email management. Not only does this make the appliance robust, but it also enables it to cloak the Exchange server to fully protect it from external threats.

See us at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference

This new delivery of Vircom's acclaimed ModusGate will be unveiled for the first time at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Minneapolis on July 8-10, 2005. Units will be on display at the Vircom booth #536 and qualified experts will be on site to answer questions and make sales arrangements.
