Openwave Messaging Announces Next Generation Security Solution


February 12, 2014

Openwave Messaging, a provider of messaging software solutions, has introduced RazorGate 5, a next generation security solution that provides messaging security and protection from spam, viruses, malware and other attacks.

“Messaging security continues to be a big concern,” said Dave Ratner, president and CEO at Openwave Messaging. “We want to help our customers reduce their overall business risk.”

The company’s newest offering has been designed to reduce the threat of Internet-based messaging attacks. Ratner said that RazorGate 5 delivers a security solution that eliminates more than 99 percent of messaging-based security threats.

For RazorGate 5, the company has integrated the edge-security techniques and the lowest total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) with traffic management, anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-malware technologies.

Company officials said that it delivers a complete set of security features. Moreover, it is equipped with the flexibility of a cloud offering, an on-premise software solution, or an appliance that can install in front of and protect any email solution.

RazorGate comes with two key features, the new Policy Engine and the new unified management console (UMC). Administrators benefit from the Policy Engine, as it allows them to define policies that determine how messages are handled, and how mail flows are created and managed.

Company officials said that the scripting techniques consider message characteristics -- message origin, timestamp and content -- to dynamically check messages, and harmful content and spam messages are deleted.

And, with the UMC, administrators can create the environment that they need to monitor their networks and deliver maximum protection for their user population and network infrastructure, according to company officials.

RazorGate 5 is now available as a cloud offering, an on-premise software solution, or an appliance that can sit in front of and protect any email solution.

Last year in December, Openwave Messaging acquired Critical Path, a provider of messaging, security and unified communications, in a bid to increase its market share and expand into adjacent markets.

Acccording to TechNavio's analysts, the global messaging security market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.7 percent over the period 2013-2018. They note that one of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing popularity of cloud-based secure messaging.
