June's Notes and Domino product announcements include new antivirus protection for Domino on Solaris, antispam software from Angel Infinity, several new Domino learning courses and more.

McAfee GroupShield for Domino available on Sun Solaris platform

Network Associates Inc., headquartered in Santa Clara, Calif., has announced availability of McAfee GroupShield for Lotus Domino on the Sun Solaris platform. Part of the McAfee Secure Content Management Solution set, McAfee GroupShield for Domino offers Sun Solaris users an added layer of protection against viruses and malicious code. That protection includes virus detection, cleaning, content filtering and blocking, as well as secure content management capabilities that let IT managers establish rules to qualify e-mail. Added components -- McAfee Outbreak Manager, which prevents large-scale mass mailer outbreaks, and McAfee Alert Manager, which notifies IT admins of threats -- offer expanded protection while minimizing the likelihood of network disruption.

Angel Infinity launches GateKeeper for Notes

GateKeeper for Notes, touted as a powerful and scalable antispam solution, is now available. Released last month by Angel Infinity Inc., based in Londonderry, N.H., GateKeeper targets unsolicited mail before it reaches the Domino mail router. Angel Infinity says this unique structure differentiates GateKeeper from traditional spam filters. Its Challenge/Response system, which either allows or denies e-mail, is intended to help organizations stay one step ahead of spammers. GateKeeper also includes a proprietary data synchronization tool that keeps "allow" and "deny" lists in synch with contact lists. This tool, which is fully compatible with Notes/Domino R5 and R6, eliminates the need for frequent maintenance.
