GWAVA® for Novell GroupWise


GWAVA protects the vital and casual business communication for thousands of organizations in industries such as government, education, financial services, health care and business.

GWAVA stops cyber-criminals, spam, and porn before they ever enter your Novell GroupWise messaging system.

The GWAVA secure message gateway uses the latest technology to detect viruses, malware, spam, and illicit images and block them from your system.

Total GroupWise Support - Only GWAVA provides total scanning from the inside out for your Novell GroupWise messaging platform. GWAVA intercepts all messages passing through GroupWise MTAs and GWIAs in real time to make sure they are spam and virus-free. In addition, GWAVA can run at scheduled intervals to scan and quarantine viruses that may already be lurking in the post office.

GroupWise connectors to the MTA, POA, and GWIA come standard with GWAVA. GWAVA also includes SMTP to filter messaging at the perimeter of any standards-based internet mail system, including Microsoft Exchange®, Novell GroupWise®, or Lotus Domino®.

To manage email from WebAccess®, GWAVA includes a connector to WASP™. Plus, for total Novell coverage, GWAVA also includes a Vibe® OnPrem (Teaming 3.0) plug-in.

Anti-Spam Protection - GWAVA provides multi-layer spam defense to protect email and keep unwanted traffic off your collaboration system. Perimeter Defense Scanning - the GWAVA soft appliance, for spam at the perimeter - catches spam before it ever reaches your messaging system. This keeps your email system running smoothly and efficiently.

Signature Engine - GWAVA’s premiere anti-spam technology is constantly updated with new spam signatures. This innovative technology assures that your critical email still lands in your inbox.

Minimize False-Positives - The GWAVA anti-spam engine is constantly updated with new spam signatures. This innovative technology assures that false-positives are detected, and means that the mail you need ends up in your in-box and only spam gets filtered out.

Outbound Protection - Viruses and threats penetrate your network from a wide range of entry points. Viruses that penetrate your perimeter defenses can compromise your end user workstations. GWAVA, with inbound and outbound scanning, ensures that threats and damages are minimized.

Cyber-crime Protection - GWAVA provides a fortification with multiple layers of specialized protection to keep cyber criminals from using email as a method of attacking your infrastructure.

Porn Defense - GWAVA uses Image Analyzer, which scans the composition of images and videos. Instead of the more commonly used signature databases, its sophisticated probability engine scans incoming images, reliably distinguishes between pornographic and non-pornographic content, and stops the content from entering your messaging system.

Web Content and Traffic Filtering - GWAVA provides you the ability to monitor, filter, and block internet traffic. GWAVA integrates with compatible ICAP systems to provide content filtering for incoming and outgoing internet traffic, including URL filtering, social media, and search filtering. GWAVA filters sites based on category, reputation, corporate policy and file type. Give users the ability to access good content, while blocking inappropriate, sensitive or malicious content. This provides users the ability to access approved sites (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and others) that would otherwise need to be blocked completely based on internet usage policies. GWAVA alerts managers of inappropriate internet traffic via email and the GWAVA interface.

Anti-Virus Protection - GWAVA features the best “zero-hour” anti-virus protection available for both inbound and outbound traffic. Viruses are stopped before an out- break occurs, which can cost you thousands of dollars in lost time and data.

Policy-Based, Multi-Tenant Configuration - GWAVA lets you create and configure individual message policies based on the delivery information of each individual message. Use criteria such as the recipient, the source address, and direction to create separate message policies for incoming and outgoing email, for individual users, domains or multiple sets of users. GWAVA also supports full multi-tenant mail scanning through single messaging gateways. Combined with the policy-based control, GWAVA partners and service providers can use GWAVA as a hosted solution.

DoS/DDoS Protection - Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed DOS (DDoS) attacks to the SMTP can take down your mail server, which costs your organization time and money in lost productivity. Attacks can seldom be thwarted by the firewall alone. GWAVA features protection against DoS & DDoS attacks to the SMTP server. Protect your mail system and ensure that you stay up and running.

GWAVA in the Cloud - GWAVA Cloud Services allows you to reduce costs, manage complexity, and mitigate risks by securing your messaging system without the IT, software, and support costs associated with on premise messaging security.

Multi-System Support - Filter messaging at the perimeter of any standards-based internet mail system, including Microsoft Exchange®, Novell GroupWise®, or Lotus Domino®.

End User Black and White Lists - Empower end users and reduce administration time and costs with End User Black and White Lists. This release of GWAVA features an interface for end users to flag domains and email addresses. The end users can place individual email addresses or complete domains on their black or white list, allowing for messages to pass through or be blocked based on this list.
