GFI slashes prices for gateway content security and antivirus software by over 75%

December 02, 2003 - 12:00

GFI has just made antivirus and content security affordable to any company. Traditionally, gateway level content security and antivirus is quite expensive. GFI’s across-the-board price reductions are about to change this. Companies can now purchase GFI MailSecurity mail gateway/server protection - with multiple-engine virus scanning, exploit checking, Trojan detection and more - for as little as $895 for a 100-user network. GFI has also reduced the pricing of its GFI DownloadSecurity software, which protects a company from potentially malicious or virus-infected downloads at just $895 for a 100-user version.

“Our new pricing is so competitive that even companies that already use antivirus protection at mail server level can now afford to have the added protection of another security vendor at their gateway,” said Nick Galea, CEO of GFI. “In addition, with the new pricing structure, GFI MailSecurity and GFI DownloadSecurity are in a better position to compete with the bundled gateway offerings of antivirus vendors.”

Deciding whether to install email content security and antivirus is a “no-brainer”. The key decision lies in finding one that gives the best possible protection at the lowest price. GFI MailSecurity uses multiple antivirus engines for the best protection; information on how multiple antivirus engines at mail server/gateway level improve network security is available in this GFI white paper:
