What's new in this release

McAfee Security for Microsoft Exchange (MSME) has increased its protection profile to provide the best protection for your Microsoft Exchange servers.

Here is a list of features included with this release of the product:

Feature Description
New Exchange server support
Support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013
Support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 with Service Pack 2
IP reputation

A method of detecting threat from email messages based on the sending server's IP address. IP Reputation Score reflects the likelihood that a network connection poses a threat.

IP reputation leverages on McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) to prevent damage and data theft by blocking the email messages at the gateway based on the source IP address of the last email server.

MSME processes the message before it enters the organization by rejecting or dropping the connection based on the IP reputation score.

DLP and Compliance Ability to ensure that email content is in accordance with your organization’s confidentiality and compliance policies.

Pre-defined compliance dictionaries include:

Addition of 60 new DLP and Compliance dictionaries.
Support for industry specific compliance dictionaries — HIPAA, PCI, Source Code (Java, C++ etc.)
Improvements to existing phrase based detections.
Reduced false positives, due to enhanced capabilities in detecting non-compliant content, based on the Threshold score and in combination with the maximum term count (occurrence).

Customize policies for content security and Data Loss Prevention (DLP).
