This article reports on the Astaro Security Linux v5.1 perimeter security software from Astaro Corp. that includes major spam protection enhancements, dramatically improving the blocking of unwanted email messages as of February 2005. Astaro Security Linux v5.1 also enables easy integration with network management systems, and adds features that allow customers to monitor bandwidth usage. Astaro Security Linux V5.1 key new features include SPF record checking, greylisting, BATV reverse path signing, list of quarantined emails for users, use of additional spam databases. All anti-spam features can be enabled or disabled from the Astaro Security Linux WebAdmin interface, and in some cases can be enabled or disabled for specific email recipients. Astaro Security Linux V5.1 supports the use of Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Traps to communicate system information like anti-virus and network outages in real time to network management systems such as HP OpenView, CA Unicenter, and IBM Tivoli. SNMP trap sending can be configured from the Astaro Security Linux WebAdmin interface. This feature provides alerts when bandwidth limits are exceeded and allows administrators to respond quickly to unexpected changes.
