Hello folks.

I'm in the process of choosing an e-mail anti-virus gateway which has
some kind of outbreak detection features that can protect me during
zero-hour, before the signatures are released. Currently, it seems that
IronPort and CommTouch are the main players in this area. I was
wondering, what are your experiences with these zero-hour AV systems. As
I understand, CommTouch is more of a statistical analyzer, while
IronPort has a 24x7 team of analysts constantly monitoring the
SenderBase network.

Anyone using one of these systems? Any comments?

Thanks in advance.
