Clearswifts MailSweeper Business Suite, released last month, is a fine example of how context-based anti-spam tools add brawny features in their efforts to stop junk e-mail.

MailSweeper Business Suite is a combination of anti-spam software, secure messaging and e-mail-content-policy enforcement. Its priced at $16,425 for 1,000 licenses and one year of support.

The product worked well in my tests, and IT managers will likely find the functions an easy-to-manage, sensible combination of messaging tools. It is interesting to watch e-mail message management systems rolling components together: IT managers will likely see more of this and will probably be able to negotiate acquisition costs.

I think maintenance costs for the MailSweeper Business Suite are fair, given that spam filtering still involves a great deal of vendor staff time to keep up-to-date.
