Technical Overview of 3BClean

3BClean is a server-based application. It has no dependence on any Microsoft technology thus making it reliable and scalable.

Documents for cleaning may be uploaded to the system directly through an HTML page, or automatically cleaned when attached to an email through the integration with email servers, or cleaned on import or export to a content management system.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

3BClean is simple to install and has a very low administration overhead. Being server based there is nothing to install on individual users desktops.

Platform Support

3BClean is server based and is supported on Windows and Linux servers. It requires 512MB of RAM and any modern AMD or Intel processor. 3BClean documents can be sent via Windows, Linux and Macintosh desktops. The 3BClean Legacy utility is also supported on Windows, Unix and Macintosh desktops.

Automatic cleaning of documents as they are emailed

3BClean sits on the SMTP pipe and works with all SMTP email servers. It requires no integration with email clients so will work with webmail clients as well as any desktop email client.
