McAfee release Security Virtual Appliance

From the press release:

"For the first time, customers can try a spam-filtering appliance through the download of a virtual software file, to see how it performs relative to their current anti-spam solution," said Jack Marsal, director of product marketing for McAfee. "We're giving customers the opportunity to experience the benefits of McAfee Secure Internet Gateway on their own server, before making an investment in an appliance."

The VMware trial has the same features and effectiveness of the physical Secure Internet Gateway appliance. Users can quickly and easily add the software to a server that is already up and running in the production environment, to conduct the evaluation without setting up a separate appliance.

The McAfee Secure Internet Gateway provides the following benefits:

* Comprehensive threat protection. A single appliance defends against both Web and e-mail threats, stopping spam, phishing, viruses, spyware and malicious Web sites
* Superior Security. Secure Internet Gateway finds and blocks 98 percent of spam, including hard-to-detect image spam, and includes McAfee's award-winning anti-virus and anti-spyware technology
* Safe Surfing. McAfee SiteAdvisorTM is built-in to help monitor, warn, or proactively stop users from visiting Web sites that harbor spyware, phishing scams, or spamming agents
* Increased cost savings. McAfee provides enterprise-class security at an affordable, flat-rate price, with inexpensive renewals
* Improved security visibility and reaction time. McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator allows users to centrally and efficiently manage their gateway, desktop and mail server protections
