SecurityPlus for MDaemon - Features

SecurityPlus for MDaemon complements and extends the built-in security features of the MDaemon Mail Server, providing a shield to stop security trouble before it starts. By combining multiple powerful security safeguards, it blocks virtually all known dangers and prevents infestation by newly released threats. It automatically downloads and installs updates for hands-off administration. SecurityPlus is available in multiple languages and proactively protects email users against viruses, spam, phishing attacks, spyware, and other types of unwanted and harmful email.

Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD™) Technology

  • Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD) uses patented technology to identify patterns which are content agnostic to safeguard the original message. These patterns cannot be used to reconstruct the original message.
  • RPD extracts and then analyzes relevant patterns, which are used to identify massive email-borne outbreaks. It classifies both distribution and structural patterns within an email message.
  • RPD patterns are compared to the local cache which provides fast match results for more than 70% of the patterns. If a pattern is not in the local cache, RPD will query global data centers for a match to provide true real-time protection with the most up-to-date patterns. These global data center queries then update the cache to keep the most current patterns available locally.
  • RPD is designed to distinguish between the distribution patterns of solicited bulk emails, representing legitimate business correspondence, from those of unsolicited bulk emails, representing spam.
  • RPD identifies incoming threat messages with very few, if any false positives. Not only are the patterns content agnostic, they are also language-independent making it equally effective for all message formats and encoding types.

Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection

SecurityPlus for MDaemon - Outbreak Protection

Real-time pattern analysis provides much faster protection than traditional filter and signature based solutions that require detecting, defining, and disseminating new virus information. Outbreak Protection requires no heuristic rules, content filtering, or signature updates. Includes Real-time, antispam, zero-hour antivirus, anti-spyware, and antiphishing technology (Available for MDaemon Pro users only).

Inline Virus Scanning

Kaspersky AntiVirus Engine

SecurityPlus for MDaemon - Kaspersky Inline Antivirus Scanning

SecurityPlus scans messages inline, using the Kaspersky AntiVirus Engine, during each SMTP session, effectively stopping malicious software at the email entrance to your network. When a corrupted message with a security threat is detected, SecurityPlus refuses to accept the email and any attachments.

ClamAV AntiVirus Engine

SecurityPlus for MDaemon - ClamAV Inline Antivirus Scanning

In addition to the Kaspersky AntiVirus engine, messages are scanned via the ClamAV plugin for SecurityPlus, adding an additional layer of antivirus protection for all inbound and outbound email traffic.

Urgent Update Notification

SecurityPlus for MDaemon - Antivirus Updater

Provides additional antivirus definitions beyond regularly scheduled updates. When a high-risk virus threat is identified by Kaspersky Labs, you can select to be notified and trigger SecurityPlus to automatically initiate a database update of the latest virus definitions. Antivirus protection from Kaspersky Labs combines traditional antivirus defense methods with the latest proactive technologies to keep your organization safe from new and emerging threats.

Versatile Control

SecurityPlus for MDaemon - Event Scheduler

SecurityPlus for MDaemon detects infected attachments in both plain text and HTML messages. When an infected attachment is detected and you have selected to not block the message outright, you have the option to clean it, quarantine it, delete it, or allow MDaemon's Content Filter to handle it. Specific domains and addresses may also be excluded from scanning altogether.

Log Files

SecurityPlus for MDaemon - Virus Log

SecurityPlus for MDaemon includes an administrative log that keeps track of the type, time, and location of detected viruses.
