Google Postini security services work in the cloud to help prevent spam and viruses before they hit your servers. These services also make it easy for admins to fine-tune filtering options to get the right level of protection for their organization's unique needs. Google introduced a new reporting feature “Health Check,” which helps you maximize effectiveness of your spam filters. Think of it as a self-service "tune-up" for your Postini filters. It gives admins a comprehensive report to help them check how current configurations impact effectiveness of antispam and antivirus filters. Report also highlights deviations from our recommended best practices, so that you can see areas where more protection might be helpful and select levels that best meet your needs. For e.g., reports can "flag" areas of risk in user-defined settings, help optimize Approved Sender Lists, and guide the way you set up firewalls. Health Check is now available through the Postini service administration console to Postini and Google Apps Premier Edition customers.
