The Release Candidate for Messageware OWA Guard, the first security product to empower users with Microsoft Exchange OWA Sign on protection, is now available for free to companies worldwide.

April 10, 2012, Toronto, Canada – Messageware (, the world’s leading provider of enterprise security, productivity and customization solutions for Microsoft Office Outlook Web App (OWA), today announced the release candidate for Messageware OWA Guard for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is now available and companies worldwide are invited to download the solution. This patent pending, server security software for Microsoft Exchange OWA is designed to protect businesses and employees from unauthorized access to corporate information by applying advanced sign-on security measures.

Messageware OWA Guard empowers users and security administrators with the information and tools they need to protect OWA. The enterprise software solution detects and assists users in identifying account compromises from unauthorized individuals, automated brute-force attacks, phishing, password guessers, man-in-the-middle attacks, and key loggers while simultaneously monitoring the overall security health of Exchange.  OWA Guard also restricts logons from countries or geographic areas where normal business operations are not expected, or known hacker communities exist.

In addition, when coupled with Exchange FBA, Forefront TMG, RSA or other perimeter security, OWA Guard puts pervasive security back in the hands of IT administrators and users. Key features include the following:

  • Enables users to easily identify phishing
  • Detects and blocks brute-force attacks
  • Uncovers and avoids man-in-the-middle servers
  • Recognizes key-logged account credentials
  • Roaming and in-office sign on policies
  • Key administrative alerts of suspicious activity
  • Roll-up and administrative reports of enterprise authentication activity

Since 1993, Messageware has been providing security solutions that enable organizations to deploy OWA with the confidence that their users and corporate documents are protected, and email sessions are secured. Over 2,500 companies and 5 million users, including several of the Fortune 50 in finance, insurance and banking and a host of global, federal and military agencies, rely on Messageware AttachView, TimeGuard and NavGuard to protect OWA.

OWA Guard is presently available in release candidate form and will be available for general release later this quarter. Companies worldwide are invited to request a free OWA Guard Software Trial.
