What makes it Innovative? Red Condor's Vx Technology is the industry's first email security that integrates a local network appliance with hosted service. Vx Technology allows the customer's local network appliance to completely and automatically fail-over to Red Condor's hosted service should it go down entirely because of overwhelming attacks power failure or other network issues. By combining the spam-filtering capability of Red Condor's MAG network appliances with the company's nationwide network of data centers resources are always available to prevent spam attacks from overwhelming individual servers. Spam traffic is placing an enormous and unplanned strain on customers' CPU resources and hard drive space. With Vx Technology Red Condor is able to offload that pressure with network load sharing.Red Condor's latest firmware update which powers MAG appliance includes support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) Encryption. Using digital certificates Red Condor establishes private email networks that link Red Condor's customers with their defined partners. As a result every email sent or received through the networks is fully encrypted and the encryption is transparent to both sender and recipient. Using TLS to encrypt communications between two email gateways protects all email content while in transit and ensures full compliance with privacy regulations.
