Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Avecho, a managed service scanning the email of consumers and SMEs for viruses and spam, is branching out into the enterprise.

The company has gone live with services designed to protect ISPs and corporate customers. The firm's virusCENSOR and spamCENSOR packages are run from a secure server farm and are designed to protect customers from viruses without having to wait for signature updates from AV vendors.

The launch positions Avecho against the much better established MessageLabs in the corporate space and helps validate the model for filtering off email viruses before they reach corporate boundaries. This the most common way viruses can travel, so the services are best seen as a complement to traditional desktop AV technologies.

Unlike MessageLabs, Avecho also offers virus and spam busting services targeted at SMEs and home users. Avecho business email service costs £75 + VAT per mailbox per year for 1-9 mailboxes and £60 + VAT per mailbox per year for 10-50 mailboxes. Avecho personal cost £75 + VAT per mailbox per year to protect individuals against viruses and spam. ®
