Review: FrontBridge TrueProtect Message Management Suite
For large enterprises that want to solve the spam problem with almost no administrative overhead, TrueProtect is a good choice.Anti-spam service providers block spam before it even gets to an organizations mail servers, with no software or hardware to install or maintain. However, the service options are more expensive than the software and hardware options. FrontBridge Technologies has a simple guiding principle when it comes to fighting spam: Spam has no place in the enterprise and should simply be done away with. Even with this brassy attitude, FrontBridge provides end users with two effective methods of checking their filtered mail for false positives: Users can either log on to a Web site for a list of messages, or an e-mail digest can be mailed to the user. In either case, the end user can be given the authority to resurrect false-positive e-mail. During tests at WiscNet, no false-positive e-mail was detected.
Although eWEEK Labs liked the FrontBridge approach, WiscNet wanted more per-domain administrative control than TrueProtect offers. In particular, WiscNet judges were leery of TrueProtects limited white-list capabilities.
