Anti-Spam and Email Archiving to be Retired
Posted by Jim Giseburt on 21 October 2016 11:34 AM

The Anti-Spam and Email Archiving features have long been a part of Cipafilter.  Years ago, Anti-Spam was our number two selling feature behind our superior, proprietary, context-sensitive Content Filtering.

With the advent of Google Apps for Education, now known as G Suite for Education, many of our valued Anti-Spam customers moved to Google for email services which include free anti-spam protection.  Initially, many of those same customers continued to use Cipafilter Email Archiving, because Google charged education customers for their email archiving solution, Google Vault.  In January 2015, Google began to provide Google Vault to G Suite for Education customers for free.

The number of Cipafilter customers that use our Anti-Spam and Email Archiving features has continued to decline.  As a result, it is with a very heavy heart that we announce the retirement of our Anti-Spam and Email Archiving features.

In our soon to be released Version 9.2 firmware, these features will remain fully functional, but will be moved to a Deprecated Features menu.  Effective with the release of our Version 9.6 firmware scheduled for release in December 2017, these features will be completely removed from firmware.  Support for both features will terminate at that time.

We want to thank our customers for their belief in us and our product.  As we retire Anti-Spam and Email Archiving, we will redeploy our Anti-Spam and Email Archiving development team members to our Firewall, Content Filter and Internet Reporting development teams.

We recently introduced our new Advanced Bandwidth Control, web reporting enhancements including:  the InSite report, a Report Card and exclusion filters, and firewall rules by group.  We continue to have some exciting new features in development!  We will continue to provide you, our valued customers, with superior Cipafilter features!
