GFI Software Ltd. Key Developments

GFI Software Enhances GFI MailEssentials with New Anti-Virus Engine and Anti-Spam Capabilities

GFI Software(TM) announced the release of GFI MailEssentials 2014 R2, adding major enhancements to the company's comprehensive email security solution. With more than 70% of worldwide email traffic consisting of spam, the need for robust email security solutions is paramount for organizations of all sizes. GFI MailEssentials 2014 provides small and mid-sized (SMB) organizations with new virus, malware and spam detection capabilities. All GFI MailEssentials users are able to take advantage of BitDefender and ThreatTrack VIPRE anti-virus (AV) engines to detect email-borne pathogens. For even greater protection, users may also subscribe to additional AV services from McAfee, Kaspersky and now, Germany-based Avira. With Avira powered AV detection now at their disposal, administrators can deploy the best combination of AV engines they feel will provide their organization with the most complete detection capabilities possible. GFI MailEssentials 2014 users now also have greater anti-spam capabilities with the introduction of Intelligent Language Detection -- a new plugin that allows administrators and end-users to set spam policies based on language detection. GFI MailEssentials 2014 also provides email management, content filtering and attachment filtering. With more powerful spam detection capabilities, with Intelligent Language Detection, and the ability to leverage up to five of the top anti-virus engines, now including Avira, MailEssentials provides complete email protection. All versions of GFI MailEssentials 2014 are subscription based. UnifiedProtection pricing begins at just $19 per machine for 100-249 desktops. All subscriptions come with GFI's globally recognized customer service support, available 24/7, plus software maintenance. All features and upgrades are available immediately.

GFI Software Expands GFI Cloud Suite with Integrated Remote Access and Control

GFI Software announced the addition of remote control and remote access capabilities as part of a major update to GFI Cloud(TM), IT platform for small and medium-sized businesses. GFI Cloud enables IT administrators to easily manage and secure servers, workstations, laptops and mobile devices from a single, intuitive, Web-based user interface. The addition of Remote Control in GFI Cloud enables IT admins to launch a secure remote support session and take control of a computer from the same centralized web-based console. Based on the technology used in the popular TeamViewer remote access utility, Remote Control in GFI Cloud enables admins to connect, take control and screen share with a user's client computer with just one click of the mouse - launching a secure connection within the GFI Cloud web console and allowing the admin to have immediate access to the rest of the security and network management modules they have also purchased. Remote Control gives IT admins full audio and video access to a client computer, as well as file transfer, cut, copy and paste capabilities between remote client and host. Multiple remote connections can be launched within GFI Cloud and sessions can be recorded for training, compliance and diagnostic review.

GFI MAX Announces the Release of New Version of its GFI MAX RemoteManagement Platform

GFI MAX announced the release of a new version of its GFI MAX RemoteManagement platform that extends the value of its Mobile Device Management (MDM) service offering. The offering now includes support for Windows Phone 8.1, enabling managed service providers (MSPs) to manage, secure and monetize customers' mobile devices running on all three of the leading platforms in the industry, Apple iOS, Google Android and Microsoft Windows Phone. In addition to adding support for Windows Phone, the solution also includes new MDM reporting and Android Wi-Fi provisioning capabilities. The enhancements to GFI MAX MDM continue the company's emphasis on helping MSPs offer a comprehensive management and security service which covers all of their clients' devices and company data, while creating new, recurring revenue opportunities to support their continued business growth. Building on features introduced in last year's initial launch of GFI MAX MDM, MSPs can now manage and secure company data on a broader range of mobile devices, including proactively setting which devices may use company email and Wi-Fi services and implementing and enforcing company security policies. In the event of a loss or theft of a device, MSPs can provide assurance of continued protection by setting or resetting passwords or remotely wiping lost or stolen devices if appropriate. GFI MAX MDM feature enhancements include: Windows Phone Support -With support for Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft's latest mobile operating system, MSPs can manage mobile devices running the iOS, Android and Windows Phone operating systems -the 'big three'-increasing companies' and employees' ability to choose the device that best meets their needs. MDM Inventory Report -By providing a full overview of all the devices the MSP is managing on behalf of its customers, MSPs can demonstrate the comprehensive nature of MDM support across their customer's network. Location History Report - Customers concerned about the location of devices (and the location of employees carrying those devices) now have access to a detailed breakdown of the locations at which selected Android or Windows phone devices were logged over a period of months. Android provisioning for Wi-Fi access -GFI MAX MDM now has Android Wi-Fi provisioning and the capability to provide instant update notifications when needed.
