InBoxer unveils virtualized compliance appliance

Virtualized appliance monitors e-mail messages for violations to regulatory, legal, and corporate policies

InBoxer on Wednesday announced a virtualized version of its appliance for archiving e-mail, detecting data leaks, and meeting electronic discovery requirements.

The Anti-Risk Virtual Appliance is a version of the company's hardware appliance that provides the same monitoring of e-mail messages for violations to regulatory, legal, and corporate policies, according to company officials. These policies include government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oakley and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, corporate guidelines regarding sexual harassment and privacy, and laws regarding identity theft, they say.

Designed for companies with up to 5,000 users, the virtualized appliance runs on VMware Server or Microsoft Virtual PC software. An organization's e-mails are copied and stored in their original format on the virtualized appliance, complying with legal discovery rules that dictate messages must not be altered, officials say. The appliance performs more than 70 tests on each message looking for violations

The virtualized appliance offers significant cost benefits over InBoxer's hardware appliance, officials say, by reducing the amount of hardware required as well as related expenses such as support and energy. While the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance starts at US$5,000, the virtualized version costs US$99 per month plus 99 cents per user per month.

InBoxer is one of a few appliance makers that have released virtualized versions of their products. Another is Proofpoint, which last September released a virtualized version of its e-mail security appliance.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
