Gordano is a company that has made the messaging arena its own. Its NTMail product was a revolution when it was first launched in 1994, and it was recently re-branded and overhauled to become Gordano Messaging Suite (GMS).

Installation is simple and straightforward, and Gordano has also ensured that the product is suitable for all major operating ­ systems. Once installed, navigation is easy: the product is logically structured with well-laid out GUIs. Both configuration and management are carried out via a web-based interface.

Installation is simple and straightforward, and Gordano has also ensured that the product is suitable for all major operating ­ systems. Once installed, navigation is easy: the product is logically structured with well-laid out GUIs. Both configuration and management are carried out via a web-based interface.

GMS's primary function is obviously the transfer of emails, and it is able to process large numbers and high volumes. With numbers this high, security becomes even more vital, and Gordano has ensured that security has been built into every component from the ­ bottom up.

One basic security function is an ability to configure as both an internal and external firewall, removing the 'vendor gap' that often leads to incorrect configuration and security loopholes. Different users and user groups can be managed separately, ensuring the required degree of protection at every point.

One of the most annoying by-products of the internet age is spam, and the Messaging Suite is no slouch in this department. Its anti-spam component offers a range of functions to weed out unwanted emails.

If your company is sending and receiving tens of thousands of emails a day, the chances of an infected one are high. The Messaging Suite provides anti-virus protection that scans all emails and their attachments for infection. It can automatically block, quarantine or clean infected emails, and is automatically updated to ensure up-to-the-minute signature files.

As well as all of its built-in functionality, the Messaging Suite provides a host of hooks and APIs, which allow it to seamlessly integrate with almost any IT infrastructure, as well as its own Mail Meta language for customization.

Documentation is superb, covering all aspects of installation, maintenance and use. And should users run into a problem, Gordano offers 24x7 dedicated customer support.

Gordano boasts that it has more than 20,000 customers worldwide. Given the ease of use and rich functionality of its Messaging Suite, it isn't hard to see why. All in all, it is a superb product for all your messaging needs.
