> 1) What product are you using and on what server/gateway platform?
Trend InterScan VirusWall for solaris. On an Sun E250. We
are just using the smtp email-scanning component. Scanning
both in and outbound mail for our central mail server. 100000
email a day.
> 2) How effective has it been?
Engine works well. Some customization and documentation issues.
Add-on to block attachments with a particular extension is pricey,
and we don't have it.
> 3) How stable has it been?
> 4) How much did it affect mail gateway/server performance?
We had some problems integrating it into our existing environment,
using only 2 hosts. Queue-processing problems. Now we have
three solaris hosts:
[ inbound ] -> [ scanner ] -> [ delivery ]
Sendmail -> Trend -> Sendmail/Imap/Pop/NFS-server
with the host-structure being one of their recommended
configurations. Everything seems to work quite well.
> 5) The approximate pricing.
New hardware and the software.
