Sunbelt Software Announces Upgrade to Sunbelt Messaging Ninja

Popular Email Security Product Adds New Disclaimer Functionality

CLEARWATER, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2007 -- Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security software, today announced the release of Sunbelt Messaging Ninja™ version 2.1, the all-in-one, best-of-breed email security product for Microsoft Exchange. New features in Ninja 2.1 include disclaimer functionality, an improved antispam engine for better spam detection, and console management enhancements.

Messaging Ninja provides integrated antispam, antivirus, disclaimers, and attachment filtering with an extendable plug-in architecture. This provides organizations a single solution to combat today's messaging threats while extending email security functionality to protect against new messaging threats in the future.

"Adding disclaimer functionality to Ninja helps administrators reduce the cost of having a separate disclaimer product, further increasing the value of Ninja," said Alex Eckelberry, president of Sunbelt Software. "With Ninja 2.1, our Exchange customers continue to have advanced email management capabilities while also ensuring compliance with regulatory and corporate policies."

Server-based disclaimer functionality

Ninja's new disclaimer plug-in delivers functionality to include global and user-based disclaimers for all outbound email for Exchange 2000 and 2003. Administrators have the ability to configure policy-based disclaimers based on specific users, groups, domains, or public folders. User-based disclaimers enable users to adjust their disclaimer statements according to a specific user or department. Ninja also prevents multiple disclaimers when replying or forwarding and gives administrators the ability to allow users to bypass the disclaimer on a per-email basis.

Additionally, disclaimer templates are included to allow easy set up of disclaimers using HTML or plain text. Template samples include legal disclaimers, virus warning disclaimers, copyright disclaimers, and more. New reports are also available that provide detailed information on the use of disclaimers within the organization.

Improved antispam engine from Cloudmark™

For its antispam capabilities, Ninja uses two scanning engines: Cloudmark's and Sunbelt's, providing users with both a heuristic and signature-based approach. Version 2.1 includes the latest Cloudmark antispam engine with key enhancements that improve the detection of the latest spam variants including image spam. Additionally, administrators now have the ability to adjust the efficacy of spam detection while tuning the amount of resources available to the engine.

Enhanced management console

With improvements to Ninja's management console, new database management tools allow administrators to purge old records from existing databases and compress Microsoft Access databases to reduce file size. Enhanced proxy support has also been added for systems that utilize NTLM authentication.

Pricing and availability

Sunbelt Messaging Ninja is priced aggressively for all corporate environments and includes one year of support, updates and upgrades. New customers can purchase Sunbelt Messaging Ninja on a per-mailbox basis. Pricing includes the first year maintenance and starts at $184.95 for 5 mailboxes with a sliding scale discount based on number of mailboxes. A 30-day trial version of Sunbelt Messaging Ninja is available on Sunbelt Software's website.
