Roaring Penguin Software announces the integration of CanIt-Domain-PRO anti-spam software for web hosts with SWsoft's Plesk control panel. David Skoll, President of Roaring Penguin Software, said, “The CanIt configuration tool for CanIt-Domain-PRO will support the OPEN FUSION initiative. With this first release of the CanIt configuration tool, we are confident we will achieve a silver level certification."
OPEN FUSION is an initiative launched by SWsoft to address software integration issues in the Web Hosting Industry. The goal of OPEN FUSION is to create an open software platform that enables independent software developers to support control panels without having to constantly rewrite their code to integrate with each individual control panel. Roaring Penguin Software fully supports the vision of OPEN FUSION and is working actively to promote its acceptance.
Web Hosts can now offer their customers an easy way to integrate an industrial class anti-spam solution with their Plesk control panel.
"This agreement with Roaring Penguin allows them to deliver a powerful solution for service providers, which integrates two leading technologies – SWsoft Plesk control panel and Roaring Penguin Software's CanIt-Domain-PRO anti-spam software," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft. "The Technology Partnership advances our OPEN FUSION strategy by creating a unified platform for hosted e-commerce."
"By partnering with SWsoft, we will enable web hosts to offer their customers a comprehensive anti-spam solution that is flexible, reliable, and easy to use," said David Skoll. "We believe that the combination of CanIt-Domain-PRO with Plesk will help solve the problem of spam in the web hosting environment."
CanIt-Domain-PRO introduces the concept of "realms". Each customer of a web host can delegate a system administrator to manage their realm individually, giving them complete control of spam in their environment. Prior to CanIt-Domain-PRO, web hosts were required to implement crude filters in front of all their customers websites and scan to the lowest common denominator. Now their customers are able to act as realm administrators to create baseline rules, define users and streams within their realms.
Some of the features of CanIt-Domain-PRO:
• Per user control of spam and virus protection criteria
• Automatic updates
• Inbound and outbound mail scanning
• Per user Bayesian analysis including access to the RPTN Bayesian training database.
Built on top of CanIt-PRO, CanIt-Domain-PRO is designed for complex environments where global filtering policies must be balanced with an individuals' desire to have the final decision over what is and is not spam. CanIt™ products offer the industry's most complete and flexible anti-spam and anti-virus solutions. They may be deployed in any enterprise e-mail environment, including on all Linux and UNIX servers. As a stand-alone gateway appliance, CanIt can protect e-mail environments running non-UNIX servers such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes and Novell Groupwise.
OPEN FUSION is an SWsoft technology initiative to improve integration among a wide range of systems, third-party applications and modules, and custom and in-house solutions. The OPEN FUSION platform enables optimized delivery of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and traditional hosting services to help ISVs and service providers take full advantage of new opportunities in the market.
CanIt-Domain-PRO is available now for SWsoft Plesk 8.2 for Linux from Roaring Penguin Software and its partners worldwide. Available as software or as an appliance.
