McAfee, Inc. Offers First Virtual Trial of Security Appliance
McAfee, Inc. today announced a virtual machine trial of the McAfee Secure Internet Gateway appliance. The free 30-day software trial is designed to help mid-sized businesses evaluate McAfee Secure Internet Gateway, an integrated Web and e-mail security appliance that helps businesses defend their networks from spam, viruses, spyware and malicious Web sites.

"For the first time, customers can try a spam-filtering appliance through the download of a virtual software file, to see how it performs relative to their current anti-spam solution," said Jack Marsal, director of product marketing for McAfee. "We're giving customers the opportunity to experience the benefits of McAfee Secure Internet Gateway on their own server, before making an investment in an appliance."

The VMware trial has the same features and effectiveness of the physical Secure Internet Gateway appliance. Users can quickly and easily add the software to a server that is already up and running in the production environment, to conduct the evaluation without setting up a separate appliance.

The McAfee Secure Internet Gateway provides the following benefits:
- Comprehensive threat protection. A single appliance defends against both Web and e-mail threats, stopping spam, phishing, viruses, spyware and malicious Web sites
- Superior Security. Secure Internet Gateway finds and blocks 98 percent of spam, including hard-to-detect image spam, and includes McAfee's award-winning anti-virus and anti-spyware technology
- Safe Surfing. McAfee SiteAdvisor(TM) is built-in to help monitor, warn, or proactively stop users from visiting Web sites that harbor spyware, phishing scams, or spamming agents
- Increased cost savings. McAfee provides enterprise-class security at an affordable, flat-rate price, with inexpensive renewals
Orchestrator allows users to centrally and efficiently manage their gateway, desktop and mail server protections.

Technical support is available during the 30-day trial to qualified customers who are actively engaged in evaluating McAfee Secure Internet Gateway. Organizations interested in more information or downloading the trial can visit

McAfee Secure Internet Gateway VMtrial joins the growing list of McAfee products that allow VMware customers to protect their networks. Eight of McAfee's products currently support VMware, Inc.'s products including VMware Workstation, VMware Server and VMware ESX. These products include McAfee Total Protection, McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention, McAfee Network Access Control, McAfee Remediation Manager and McAfee Policy Auditor.
