VIENNA - August 3, 2012 – Proxmox Server Solutions GmbH, provider of network security and virtualization software, released a new version of their anti-spam and antivirus software Proxmox Mail Gateway this week. With version 3.0, Commtouch‘s high-performance services complement the antispam/antivirus stack (Spamassassin/ClamAV) used in Proxmox Mail Gateway.

„Proxmox Mail Gateway 3.0 now integrates two Anti-Virus Engines: ClamAV and Commtouch’s Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection,“ explains Martin Maurer, CEO of Proxmox. „By integrating these two engines our customers benefit from a traditional, signature-based and high-performance virus detection as well as from the cloud-based and immediate signature-less Commtouch scanning.“  

Proxmox Mail Gateway 3.0 enables businesses and individuals to protect their email servers against spam, viruses, trojans and phishing emails. The Proxmox High Availability (HA) Cluster consists of a master and several nodes. Configuration and data is synchronized to all cluster nodes over a VPN tunnel which provides high availability, high performance and a fully redundant data store. The web-based and user friendly management allows IT administrators to easily overview and control all functions. An innovative Message Tracking Center merges all available logs of the email traffic. No more puzzling over the question: Where is my email?

Installation of the Proxmox Mai Gateway 3.0 can easily be done in a couple of minutes with bare-metal (CD or USB) or by using a virtualization platform like Proxmox VE, VMware vSphere, Hyper-V, KVM, OpenVZ, Virtual box, Citrix XenServer, etc.. Linux Kernel (3.2) contains Vmware tools, Hyper-V integration services and paravirtualised drivers for Xen and KVM (virtio).
