    EMail Content Filtering

    Hi,

    What EMail Content Filtering software/appliances are people using? Note that I'm talking content filtering for email.

    Are you manually configuring Exchange 2007/2010 to do this?
    OR
    Are you using an extra piece of software or physical appliance?

    We've just been looking at the SonicWall EMail Security Appliance, but once you've added up the user licenses, maintenance etc it gets a little too pricey.

    Thanks, Dan

    You looking for just anti-spam, or more involved "naughty email spotting"?

    You can use FPE 2010 for Exchange 2007/2010. Probably get a discount if you have some MSFT licensing programme you're committed to.

    I'm shifting our Messagelabs to Forefront Online Protection for Exchange, if you're on EES \ Campus check your entitlements as you might already have it on there

    Are you looking to filter incoming / outgoing emails or user-to-user emails as well? Some people are only using filters on a mail gateway rather than all emails.

    Thanks to all replies, doesn't seem to be any single product that 'everyone' is using.

    @GrumbleDook, filtering of all emails, inbound/outbound and between users. I believe that we must provide filtering between users to catch any bullying that may take place via email.

    mimsweeper has deep user email scanning and can pick out certain keywords and can even send copies of emails to a different address like an admin email, I think also we had it running on facebook messages / chat.

    For internal email scanning, products such as FPE can catch emails with profanity and custom keywords etc as well as performing AV and AS. This will probably be a cheap option if your have some MSFT agreement.

    As for external emails coming into your gateway, or from your gateway to your exchange server, I'd recommend a subscription like messagelabs. You ideally want to catch as much spam/av before anything gets to your gateway/exchange org and then have anm additional layer at the gateway/exchange.

    For gateways, I'd recommend Ironport or clearswift. If you do decide to go with clearswift then do go for the CSEG's, I.e appliances rather than the software. However, using these products can be expensive.

    @CyberNerd - postini are good and did really well in the US. They have a fairly good market in the UK too. I have used them in the pass for many customers and are a way cheaper than ML, however, when it comes to AS/AV, they use engines like most tier 2 AV providers, whereas ML actually (well now called symantec.cloud) have advanced engines and create and distribute potential AV to tier 2.

    Another intelligent product is Brightmail which is really good.

    Does anyone know if Smoothwall scans internal email for AV/AS?
