FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Norman ASA, a leading global network security company, announced today that Norman Email Protection 5.0, a high performance email security solution available as a product or a service, is now available with significant enhancements.

Norman Email Protection is a secure email management solution designed to not only shield networks from malware, spam, viruses and phishing attempts, but also delivers effective tools for managing legitimate messages and attachments residing in the network.

Norman's Enhanced Sender Reputation System

Most spam today comes from cybercriminals running botnets with sophisticated network infrastructures sending out millions of emails attempting to penetrate networks from large enterprises to the SMB. With Norman Email Protection 5.0, an effective defense is put in place when the solution analyzes email IP reputation based on real-time activity. Sender Reputation System servers are updated every five minutes providing an instant reaction and protection from new spam waves.  With frequent database updates, SRS may also rapidly elect to clear email from recently cleaned computers and hosts which have become botnet-free. These ultra-fast reaction times means the SRS is the ideal counter-measure to email attacks. SRS operates at the connection level and requires few computing resources. Emails originating from known spammers can be automatically rejected or quarantined.

Email Policy Management

Norman NEP 5.0 is a complete inbound and outbound solution which enables organizations to control what content can and cannot leave or enter a local network through email, and how it should be processed. NEP 5.0 scans both inbound and outbound mail. The solution institutes rules which examine subject, body and attachments of emails. These rules use standard dictionaries which take advantage of commercially-available lists of terms specific to industries (accounting, medical, etc.). Additionally, policies may be applied to specific users, groups and domains.

Works with Standards-Based All Email Servers

Norman Email Protection 5.0 seamlessly integrates with Microsoft  Exchange, Lotus Domino and all other SMTP standards-based servers.
