Bloxx Redefines Email Filtering to Address User Productivity
April 2010 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Bloxx announced the launch of the Bloxx Email Filter, an email filter that enables organisations to identify and manage non-business email.
The email filtering appliance incorporates proven multi-layered spam and AV engines, but adds a categorisation engine that analyses emails to deliver unsurpassed protection against traditional email threats such as spam, phishing and malware. This categorisation engine, powered by Bloxx Tru-View Technology, uses URL information from the email to identify if the email is business or personal. Once categorised, the organisation’s email policy for a workgroup or individual determines if the email should be blocked, delivered or held for future delivery.
With the Bloxx Email Filter organisations can create and manage an email Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) for personal email, allowing employees to use email to its full potential without the added stress, strain and related productivity issues. This capability means that for the first time organisations now have an effective way to create and manage policies for both web and email usage.
Pricing and Availability:
The Bloxx Email Filter is available in hardware configurations to support different network sizes and includes the appliance, software updates, support and maintenance for one or three years. The Bloxx Email Filter is available now and prices start at £2,220 for a network with up to 100 PCs.
