Mailscape 4.4 is an award winning systems management tool that combines monitoring, administration, and reporting in a single product for Microsoft Exchange administrators.
ENow Inc.'s Mailscape 4.4 helps Exchange administrators manage their environment by monitoring key areas in their messaging system and providing reporting capabilities that offer visibility into how system resources are being used.
This New Product Showcase was originally published in March 2009.
System information is presented in a Web-based dashboard that provides data on each Exchange server's current state and growth rate. Daily automated reports can be generated from the data as well.
Mailscape's key features include:
- One Look Dashboard -- The Web-based dashboard interface (see Figure A) produces real-time data on any information that directly affects Exchange server uptime. It not only monitors and identifies Exchange server problems, but it also diagnoses an issue's cause and helps find a solution. The dashboard displays information for multiple Exchange servers.
