Basingstoke, UK – Integrated email and Internet content security provider Marshal Inc. has today announced an optional add-on module for its customers using Microsoft™ Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 SP1. The MailMarshal SMTP MOM Management Pack enables live monitoring of events via the MOM console on one or multiple MailMarshal servers, enabling consolidated event management of a customer’s entire MailMarshal environment.
The integrated add-on module offers high availability of corporate messaging systems as it enables administrators to proactively monitor more than thirty unique MailMarshal indicators including performance, processing, services and security events. Including:
- Alerts for possible SMTP Denial of Service attacks
- Warnings for low disk space on a MailMarshal server
- Instantaneous notification of failed or stopped services
- Multiple performance counters including latency and bytes/second
- General system health information
Administrators will also benefit from a consolidated view of all associated network management tasks from a single console. The MOM Management Pack also allows automatic restarting of services which can decrease response times.
According to Ed Macnair, CEO of Marshal, “Email today is a mission critical application and any downtime incurs costs for corporations.. Having greater visibility of the network is the most effective way to ensure email availability. Our integration with Microsoft™ Operations Manager, enables current and future customers of MailMarshal to more closely monitor their environment and stay alert to future email-borne threats.”
