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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
