“The new ESET Mail Security product for the widely used platform Microsoft Exchange Server is designed to stop attacks on the company mailboxes and what is more, fully protects the server and its own file system. Our new product is now also supporting the latest platforms – Windows Server 2012 and Exchange Server 2013,”
says Michal Jankech, Product Manager for Server Security at ESET.

Delivering thorough protection against all e-mail borne threats at the mail-gateway level, ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server 4.5 scans company e-mail traffic and the mail storage within Exchange database with industry-leading precision. Using the product, the company can benefit from the enhanced Antispam engine with improved detection rates, while the Antispam settings are now fully integrated in the product’s graphical user interface.

The product’s highlights are real file type detection incorporated into rule based scanning and improved installation procedures, that streamlines the migration of current users to newer versions of the product. With the real file type detection, the company networks administrator benefits from applying policies for specific type of content in e-mail attachments. The installer supports the migration of all previous version settings (v4.2 or v4.3), while the eShell command line control lets administrators run scripts to perform actions and create or modify configurations. The administrator is able to monitor server performance in the real time, avoiding hassles with unexpected server shut downs.

With ESET Remote Administrator, now available in 12 languages, the product is increasingly suited for businesses with international presence, offering the administrator a distance tool to fine-tune all necessary configurations. In January 2013, ESET Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange Server earned the Virus Bulletin’s “VBSpam+” award. ESET has ranked one of the best products in both Antispam testing categories: the Lowest Rate of False Positives and the Best Spam Catch Rate (of 99.83%) which is a further proof of ESET Mail Security’s powerful Antispam engine and its reliability.

ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint Server now in Release Candidate version, is another addition to the current server product portfolio that enables many businesses using the world’s most known Intranet content and document management software safeguard their company’s sensitive data and assets stored in databases.

“Built on the same base as the ESET File Security for Microsoft Windows Server, with addition of a dedicated SharePoint protection component, the released version makes ESET the first vendor offering an antivirus protection for the latest Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013,” adds ESET Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Ignacio Sbampato.

Using this security solution, the company administrators can apply complex security policy for real-time on-access scanning and perform deep on-demand and scheduled scans of the entire SharePoint data store. The product also comprises rule-based filtering that, based on the several criteria including real file type, allows specifying which files to scan to optimize resource utilization.
