Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange 7.5 combines Symantec antimalware technology with advanced heuristics to provide real-time email protection against viruses, spyware, phishing, and other malicious attacks while enforcing content filtering policies on Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, 2010 and 2013. In addition, Mail Security leverages Symantec Premium AntiSpam, powered by Brightmail technology, to stop 99 percent of incoming spam with less than one in 1 million false positives. It supports Hosted, Microsoft Hyper-V, or VMware virtualized Exchange server environments. Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange complements other layers of protection by preventing the spread of email-borne threats and enforcing data loss prevention policies.
What is new in this release:
- Console only upgrade is now supported: Previously, the console could not be upgraded between versions and instead needed to be uninstalled, then install the new version. Now the console can be upgraded from version 6.5 or 7.0 to 7.5 and the settings can be retained.
- Improved unscannable file handling: SMSMSE is now able to define a different policy for unscannable files due to scanning limits or malformed container violations at a more granular level. In addition, administrators now have the option to exempt senders/domains from unscannable file policies.
- Schedulable consolidated reporting: The consolidated report feature for multi-server environments has been enchanced to support schedulable consolidated reporting rather than only on demand reports as before.
- New content filtering template for US Social Security Numbers.
- Improved failover times for Exchange 2007 Clusters.
- Transport agent status is now written to the application event log.
- Background scanning improvements: Background scans have been enhanced to better handle large mailboxes. Additionally, background scan application event log entries include more details about the scan performed.
- Support for the Exchange 2013 Edge role: SMSMSE now supports installation to the Exchange 2013 Edge role.
- Windows 2000/XP
- Microsoft Exchange 5.0 or later
