E-Mail Content Filtering via Exchange

By ACGPHX ·
I have a client who trades in stocks. They want to move over to Exchange server. The FCC requires that they monitor their e-mail for content. Is there a way to filter every outbound e-mail to look for "hot words" and if "hot words" are within the e-mail, route that e-mail to a designated in-box for approval before sending? I'm hoping for a solution native to exchange but am open to third party suggestions.

Kill Two bird with a single shot!
Interscan VirusWall with e-manager.(from TREND)
It will isolate you from e-mail viruses and spam list.
It will allow you to filter the content of a message for example includding the word "****" and move the message to a quarantine queue and also send a copy to you, or delete every message with an .mp3 attached file
You will have many options in configuring what to do with an e-mail, to whom send copies, subject only, etc, etc, etc
Ahh. It?s very easy to install & setup.

Allan- the answer #1 is a good answer. But let?s really examine what you are asking. First ,you stated that your client wants to migrate to Exchange Server. I will assume then that your client?s is experiencing an increase in business, personnel,and bandwidth utilization.

Next you mentioned that your client has governmental requirements which necessitate filtering email. Further your expressed an idea of ?route email to a designated in-box for approval before sending? and you were hoping it was native to Exchange.

Here is some thoughts on these assumptions:

Exchange server is a great infrastructure platform for creating, storing, and sharing information. Because it is a platform it will touch on the areas mentioned but not the depth that an ?third-party add-ons?. Therefore the answer is a No to ?native to exchange?.

Now let?s look at the customers needs base on the above analysis the customer would (optimally) need a firewall and a proxy server to meet the needs. Depending on the customer?s size and the amount of protection required will dictate the degree of sophistication that these distinct applications will require.

There are a tremendous amount of good firewall software applications that will support and? ?filter every outbound e-mail to look for "hot words" and if "hot words" are within the e-mail, route that e-mail to a designated in-box for approval before sending? plus apply policies that scrutinize every email messages before they leave the business as well as scrutinize inbound email. In addition some have or you can add virus protection from email viruses.

Finally a Proxy server will provide the platform for managing internet bandwidth utilization.

Again there are several that are excellent. My only suggestion is that use of homogeneous software assures (most of the time) that these applications should play nicely together??

Any insight into which products you would recommend? The analysis is accurate in conveying what I said but the lack of "experience" based direction that I was looking for is absent.

Allan- I am sorry I did not get back to you sooner but my employer has me extremely busy (in over my head) with IPPBX development. Okay to answer your second email.

I purposely left vendor?s name out of my email for reasons mainly stemming from the fact that there are numerous good firewall software applications (my fav-is Check Point FireWall) and it often does not matter if you spend $5000 0r $50,000 but does matter on how it is configured (that is a whole course in itself). Regardless of what type of firewall you use, the basic concepts of rulebase design do remain the same. By building a solid and simple rulebase, you create a more secure firewall.

I have used Proxy Server 2.0 on NT o/s. It will meet your needs. Hope this helps.

Greg
