Cloudmark® DesktopOne Ensures That E-mail Protection Makes the Grade as Students Head Back to School
Free Cloudmark DesktopOne Anti-Spam Software Provides Students with Continuous Protection against E-mail-borne Threats for their E-mail and Webmail Accounts
SAN FRANCISCO—August 31, 2010—As students return to school this year, Cloudmark, Inc., a global leader in carrier-grade messaging security, is making sure that spam isn't their annoying and potentially dangerous new roommate. For the first time, Cloudmark is making the industry’s most accurate and easy-to-use free anti-spam software, Cloudmark DesktopOne, available as a free download to protect students’ laptops and home PCs and ensure a more productive and safe computing experience.
The lightweight, easy-to-install Cloudmark DesktopOne application continuously filters e-mail and webmail to eliminate spam and protect users against phishing and e-mail-borne viruses. Cloudmark DesktopOne empowers users to block, unblock and scan messages easily to determine their own level of protection and message delivery.
“The back-to-school season is an exciting time for both students and parents and it’s also a great time to reevaluate safety concerns around e-mail,” said Leon Rishniw, senior vice president of engineering for Cloudmark. “E-mail has become an integral tool in the academic experience and Cloudmark DesktopOne helps ensure that spam, phishing and virus attacks don’t disrupt students’ important academic activities. By providing free anti-spam software, Cloudmark is committed to making e-mail security accessible and affordable for students and every e-mail user.”

With Cloudmark DesktopOne, students receive:
