In 2007 the very first version of the Hermes SEG appliance was introduced based on Mandriva Linux. Back then the goal was to simply provide a unified appliance to combat spam and malware for our existing customers. Since then Hermes SEG has evolved into a Ubuntu based appliance with an easy to use Web GUI for management of an ever growing list of features.
In 2017, we decided to offer Hermes SEG Community Edition under the GNU Affero General Public License in order to allow anyone to take advantage of the outstanding features of Hermes SEG. In addition, we offer Hermes SEG Pro Edition which is covered under the Hermes SEG Pro EULA.
Hermes Secure Email Gateway Community Edition is a Free Open Source Ubuntu based Email Gateway that provides Spam, Virus and Malware protection, PDF, S/MIME and PGP email encryption as well as email archiving. It features the latest email authentication techniques such as SPF (Sender Policy Framework), DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) and DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance) in order to combat email spoofing, phishing, scams, email compromise attacks and spam.
Hermes Secure Email Gateway combines Open Source technologies such as Postfix, Nginx, SpamAssassin, ClamAV, Amavisd-new and CipherMail under one unified web based Web GUI for easy administration and management of your incoming and outgoing email for your organization.
It can be deployed to protect your in-house email solution as well as cloud email solutions such as Google Mail and Microsoft Office 365.
Hermes SEG is used by various organizations that include government, construction, health care providers, medical billing and food and beverage industries.
