Jagre releases new Notes programming tool

It enables Lotus designers to show form fields that reference other fields, show all components that make up a design element, show backward/forward compatibility issues with Lotus Notes formula language and LotusScript class object browsing.


CipherTrust launches e-mail intrusion detection for Domino

CipherTrust in Atlanta has made available an intrusion detection system (IDS) designed specifically for e-mail. By integrating IDS into the IronMail security appliance, CipherTrust enables enterprises to monitor, detect and respond in real time to e-mail application-level threats that are not captured by network-level IDS. IronMail's IDS acts complements network IDS and firewalls by providing a second layer of e-mail-specific, host-based protection against malicious attacks, including Trojan horses, viruses and worms, missed at the network level.

IronMail also now includes HTTP proxy, which secures Web-based e-mail systems such as Microsoft Outlook Web Access from intruders and malicious code such as the Nimda worm. IronMail works with Domino, as well as Microsoft Exchange. Pricing for IronMail starts at $17,500.


AvantGo adds Notes support on Pocket-PCs

AvantGo, Inc., a Hayward, Calif.-based provider of mobile enterprise software, is adding desktop synchronization solutions for Lotus Notes on Pocket PC-powered devices. The company has previously been shipping products with these capabilities for Palm OS handheld devices only. These offerings are in addition to AvantGo's existing solutions for mobilizing personal information management (PIM), e-mail and custom Lotus Notes databases and applications on Palm OS devices.

Through the end of the year, the company is offering desktop and server promotional pricing ranging from $80 to $205 per user, depending upon configuration.


ASP Interliant strikes a chord with Houston Symphony

Interliant Inc., an application service provider based in Purchase, N.Y., announced that the Houston Symphony has implemented and is utilizing Interliant's INIT Managed Messaging offering for internal and external communications. Interliant manages the messaging and application infrastructure.

The implementation procedure faced a major challenge when intense flooding hit Houston. After the symphony's internal data center was filled with water, Interliant built out a new dedicated server and supported the symphony in establishing mail files and user identifications. Today, all of the symphony's e-mail data is on a dedicated Domino server housed in one of data centers. In addition, during this crisis, Interliant posted messages on the symphony's Web site to direct customers to a telephone number where questions could be answered.
