4   Ease of Use

    4.1. Installation of the product:

       4.1.1   The product is deployed as an IS service, therefore it does not
               require a traditional installation. The service is set-up by the end-
               user changing their domain MX records to point to MessageLabs’
               server farm; all other installation is performed by MessageLabs’
               engineers. The end-user has access to the service’s management
               console via a standard web browser.

    4.2. Notes for an administrator:

       4.2.1   West Coast Labs always recommends that any prospective
               purchaser of a security solution should fully evaluate and trial any
               security solution they are considering purchasing within their own
               specific environment to ensure suitability.

       4.2.2   With any internet-interactive security product or solution it is
               important for systems administrators and network personnel to
               always follow the recommended set up and hardening procedures.

5   Quality of User and Administration Documentation

    5.1. Documentation is provided by MessageLabs as online content and is

        accessed via the service’s management console. West Coast Labs found
        the documentation to be both concise and accurate.




                                                                            Page 3 of 5
