MicroWorld tackles spam for Linux users

MicroWorld Technologies will be seeking out technology savvy visitors at this year’s show as it touts its latest offerings — X-Spam and MaiScan for Linux. The former is a dedicated gateway level anti-spam product for those who are losing their precious IT resources to unsolicited e-mails, while the latter is being touted as providing complete security against viruses and spam for users running open source e-mail servers.

“With the Linux market forecasted to grow from less than 10% to approximately 30% by 2007, and Linux server shipments expected to have a compounded growth rate of over 28% through 2007, we feel that it’s the best time to come up with a solution like MailScan for Linux, for the security of Linux platforms,” says Sunil Kripalani, vice president of international sales & marketing at MicroWorld.

In addition to introducing its new products to Gitex visitors, MicroWorld will also be displaying some of its old favourites, including eScan and MailScan. Both products offer realtime capabilities and are designed to prevent internet-borne attacks and protect privacy. Although both products have been around for some time, Kripalani believes both will prove popular at this year’s show as securing IT systems becomes a priority for local businesses.

“Internet threats today are much more than just virus, worms, Trojans, spam and so on. There are tons of new upcoming threats, endangering the security of an internet user. Spyware, adware, Key loggers and dialer programmes are a few to mention,” he says. “During the show, MicroWorld will exhibit how its newly launched and existing products for various platforms fight these threats on a realtime basis,” he adds.

In addition to showcasing its raft of products at the show, MicroWorld intends to use Gitex as an opportunity to expand its channel and cement existing relationships. As such, it will be telling potential resellers all about its channel friendly partner programmes.
