Vircom Launches directQuarantine for Outlook

Newly launched directQuarantine is a Microsoft add-on for Outlook designed to relieve IT administrators by giving end-users total visibility and control over their quarantined messages.

Montreal, Canada, April 22, 2011 --( Vircom, an award-winning e-mail messaging security software company, has released directQuarantine™, an Outlook add-on module for its modusGate™ email security software that provides end-user control of quarantine emails directly from Outlook.

“Up until now, there have been very few distinguishing features between the various email security solutions available on the market,” stated Damien Rame, Marketing Manager at Vircom. “directQuarantine changes all of that. For the first time ever, end-users will have direct access to their email quarantine in real-time directly from Outlook, providing a seamless user experience while relieving IT administrators from tedious day-to-day quarantine management,” Rame added.

directQuarantine provides a Spam folder in Outlook that allows end-users to search for quarantined emails in real-time using the Outlook search toolbar or the blazingly fast native Windows search – no more waiting for nightly quarantine reports, logging in to a Web portal, or depending upon IT to check for and release blocked emails. The directQuarantine folder contains all emails caught and filtered by modusGate and any false positives can be quickly and easily released directly from the Outlook toolbar. Any attachments, viruses, phishing links and all other electronic threats remain safely on the modusGate server and are not downloaded to Outlook, ensuring the highest level of security.

“Although the advantages to end-users are undeniable, we had the IT administrator in mind when we designed directQuarantine,” said Mike Petsalis, Vircom’s CEO. “Installation and deployment are very straightforward. The directQuarantine service and modusGate are installed on the same server and can be readily integrated within their company’s existing infrastructure. As an add-on to Outlook, directQuarantine Clients are quickly and easily deployed through Active Directory Group Policy. But the real advantage, is the time IT administrators will save by putting the task of email quarantine management into the hands of end-users,” Petsalis added.

Vircom’s directQuarantine software is compatible with modusGate 4.7 or 5.0, runs on Windows platforms (2003/2008/2008R2 for the server and XP/Vista/7 for the client) and is available to order today. For pricing or to request a free 30-day software trial, please visit the Vircom website:
