IT Weekly Roundup, May 6

From the business wires this week: a .NET framework that supports ASP.NET; products and services that reduce your spam intake; and an online service that can help you recover Microsoft Access files.

NetUnity Software’s updated WSRP .NET Framework 1.5 now supports ASP.NET. The latest version of the portlet development framework allows users to implement WSRP portlets using an unlimited number of ASP.NET pages, with support for form designer, postbacks, view state and event handling. Other new features include Oracle database support and SOAP tracing.

WinDeveloper Software announced the release of its anti-spam solution WinDeveloper IMF Tune. The software extends Microsoft Exchange 2003’s Intelligent Message Filter (IMF) with a variety of added features: attachment removal, configurable e-mail archiving, detailed logging, auto-reply and spam-rerouting. IMF Tune is priced at $298 per server license.

Mail Registry, Inc. is touting the launch of the first “100 percent spam-free” Web-based e-mail system. AuthenteMail delivers to users e-mail sent by only authenticated subscribers and invited guests. The service also offers 128-bit SSL encryption and unlimited e-mail and attachments, subject only to a 90-day retention policy.

Highwall Scout

The Sentinel 1100 high-range wireless sensor and Scout phased-array antennas provide the ability to quarantine and shutdown unauthorized access points and clients, monitor Bluetooth devices, and various intrusion detection and prevention features, such as wireless honey pots.

For IT jetsetters on the go who don’t want to lug around 8-pound notebooks, Technology Travel Agents offers laptop rentals in the United States and worldwide. The company has various technology available for rent for all kinds of functions, from conventions to smaller projects. Customer software and data can also be installed on rented computers.

In addition to its other Microsoft Office file recovery services for Word and Excel, Cimadevilla Electronica S.L now offers an online service for recovering damaged or corrupt Access database files with AccessRescue.
