All IronPort appliances are built from the ground up and are powered by IronPort's unique AsyncOS™ operating system for high performance and high security. Designed to meet the inbound and outbound needs of the world's largest email infrastructures, IronPort appliances contain advanced mail delivery features such as robust queue management, bounce handling and connection management.

If any of these features malfunction, it can overwhelm the email infrastructure with numerous mails, and can even make it vulnerable to virus/spam attacks. In order to avoid such adversites, it is essential to continuously monitor the health of the Ironport appliance. This is where eG Enterprise helps administrators.
