Sentrion and Microsoft Exchange
The enterprise scalability, power and resilience of Sentrion appliances makes them ideally suited to front-end and protect Microsoft Exchange environments. In these environments, Sentrion is deployed in the DMZ to:
- Provide scanning and policy enforcement to block unwanted mail from reaching Exchange servers
- Prevent Denial of Service and other types of targeted attacks
Exchange servers, which are not as scaleable or resilient when under attack, are deployed behind the DMZ to serve as the enterprise mail store.
Sentrion appliances can also be deployed behind the DMZ to efficiently manage and route email between internal Exchange servers.
Protecting and Optimizing Exchange Environments
To keep the Exchange environment operating at maximum efficiency, administrators typically deploy additional servers dedicated to security processing, management, storage and quarantine. Given the certain growth in future email volumes, investing in additional servers is not a proactive strategy. With Sentrion in place at the gateway blocking unwanted email and protecting Exchange, businesses can realize a significant ROI.
