eIQNetworks has released a beta version of its MailAnalyzer product,
designed to allow Microsoft Exchange administrators the ability to
track and asses their organizations’ e-mail usage.
According to Jay Reddy, eIQNetworks’ Vice President of Product
Management, MailAnalyzer is able to do more than simply track volume
and frequency: it acts as a policy enforcement tool by including
attachment scanners and content analyzers that examine mail for links
to objectionable sites.
The product uses information gathered from Exchange Server message
tracking logs, Exchange Directory & Windows 2000 Active Directory,
Windows NT Event Logs to gather the bulk of its traffic analysis
information, and can produce reports available in HTML, MS Word, MS
Excel, and PDF formats.
Though MailAnalyzer is designed for use with Microsoft Exchange
versions 5.5 and 2000, administration and reporting can be managed
from any platform via its built-in web server. According to Reddy, the
list of supported platforms will soon lengthen with the addition of Lotus
Domino and Sendmail.
The product is set for release in late April, but prospective buyers
an evaluation version of the beta release, complete with instructions.
Once released, MailAnalyzer will sell for $399 for a single license.
