MS buys Frontbridge

Damn it, now there’s a MS product that I’m going to be singing the praises of 🙂

The press release is here. Basically Frontbridge (formerly called BigFish) is a company that does offsite email spam/virus filtering. Basically you point your MX at them and all mail flows through them before hitting your servers. I’ve used them at two jobs now, and highly recommend them. Great protection with almost nonexistent false positives.

They even are doing compliance, archiving and email security. I really can’t think of a better company to bolster Microsoft’s security rep. Congrats to the folks I know at Frontbridge. All your hard work paid off!
