DEMO - Enterprise security solutions take stage

While the gamers and entertainers get all the headlines at shows like Demo Fall '05, enterprise solutions are the backbone of the bi-annual show that connects high-tech innovators with high-tech investors.

In the age of Sarbanes-Oxley and other compliance regulations EverEZ Systems' ability to connect and associate e-mail with other types of documents in a single file-management system is becoming increasingly important. Rather than alternating between e-mail and relevant Windows folders, for example, folders and e-mails that have something in common with those folders appear together, linked side by side within the same management window. Both incoming and outgoing e-mails are linked to appropriate folders by user-designated keywords. E-mail attachments can be accessed from within the e-mail in a drop-down display.

E-mail and application continuity is the goal of the Teneros Application Continuity appliance. The appliance plugs into a server rack and replicates the primary Exchange message store before going into standby mode. After synchronization it looks for soft and hard failures in the production environment Exchange Server and, when necessary, becomes an automatic restore device.

During the demonstration, Steve Lewis, CEO and founder of Teneros, cut the Exchange server Ethernet cable while the audience watched. The production server went down only to be instantly replaced by the Teneros appliance.

When the system comes back and is up and running an administrator clicks the Fail Back button, which returns all of the e-mails handled by the Teneros appliance during downtime to the Exchange server.

IntelliReach's primary target is e-mail content. IntelliReach MX2020 offers a management console application that gives administrators the ability to manage e-mail anti-spam and ant-virus, secure messaging, filtering, and archiving in a single management window.
