“make software that does good things for my friends and family.”
With the scale and complexity of recent email threats, including spam, viruses, Trojans, phishing and malware attacks, Libra ESVA’s engineers determined that the traditional approach of having a single generic antivirus engine is no longer sufficient. To combat this evolving threat, Libra’s engineers decided to integrate a second antivirus engine, and they found Avira to the best vendor to provide it.
“We were looking at technology partners that could provide us with a rock solid industry leading antivirus technology while keeping full control over our customer experience, allowing to improve detection rate and reduce false positives,“ said Paolo Frizzi, CEO of Libra. “With the highest performance virus scanning in the industry, we chose Avira’s anti-virus technology to become a fully integrated layer of virus protection on our Libra ESVA email security appliances.”
During the scanning process, Libra ESVA analyzes each incoming message and file, identifies the type and then applies the relevant technique to ensure highest throughput and efficacy. The integration of Avira’s scanning engine adds significant value to the ESVA product. With a per-domain integrated management and deployment, the solution offers ease of management with automatic updates and “set and forget” policies to address any customer specific requirements. Additionally, performing robust virus filtering at the gateway significantly reduces the resources needed at the groupware servers and the bandwidth requirements within the network.
Integrating Avira SAVAPI into Libra ESVA boosts product performance to the highest industry standards. Both products have been tested and awarded top ratings by Virus Bulletin in their VBSPAM and VB100 tests, confirming their positions as some of the most powerful and accurate spam and virus protection products available.
Libra is a global provider of sophisticated enterprise-grade email security solutions, offering small and medium sized businesses the most comprehensive protection from email threats including spam, viruses, Trojans, phishing, malware and other unwanted content.
