It's that time of year again, the Symantec Enterprise Security BU is now accepting applications to participate in the Symantec Brightmail Gateway 9.0 Beta program.
Last year, the 8.0 beta program was a huge success.  
We got some great feedback and the participants got early exposure to the new levels of protection as well as some cool spot prizes here and there.

This 9.0 release includes:

  • Integrated Content Encryption
  • New LDAP Directory Integration.
  • Probe Network Participation
  • Real Time Updates
  • DKIM
  • SMTP Authentication
  • New Spam Quarantine architecture

Quality is one of the key Symantec deliverables and we strive to deliver a first class product with every release. So we want to get as much customer feedback as possible before we ship.
By participating in this beta program, you can help to ensure this release is as successful as possible.

There is a short 15 minute webcast which explains a little more about the new features, the prerequisites for participating in this program and some guidelines for deployment.

All participants must be members of the Customer Advisory Program, which is free to join for all customers entitled to support and maintenance.

Applying for the beta is simple, once you've registered for the CAP just complete the registration form at the following link.

This is a great opportunity to receive an early release in order to plan your implementation and provide us with feedback to ensure issues are prioritized.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me -

Can Support Engineers join this or is it customers only?

CAP is customer only.
You should be able to get hold of the beta internally, give me a shout if you get any problems and I'll hook you up.

We are using the Brightmail name to leverage its associated brand value. While the SMS was very successful with our customers, they still often referred to it as the Brightmail product. I will definately refer Gateway 9.0....Thanks...
