BorderWare’s Boundary Email Security Passes Intelligence to Network

Recent terrorist threats have caused different government departments, and even different governments, to share information.

Until now, boundary email security devices have rarely talked to the network. Now, they’re starting to. The latest version of BorderWare’s MXtreme email security appliance illustrates. It tells Cisco and F5 network boxes about dodgy IP addresses, or about a spam or virus attack, so the network devices can suppress corresponding inbound traffic.

In the future, expect more and more security intelligence to be passed from customer-premises systems to network devices. Sometimes these will be internal, and sometimes in the Internet.
