New Anti-Spam Software Products for Consumers and Small Businesses Receive Five-Star "Excellent" Ratings from Leading Technology Publication
SAN FRANCISCO—August 16, 2010—Cloudmark, Inc., a global leader in carrier-grade messaging security, today announced that Cloudmark DesktopOne and Cloudmark DesktopOne-Pro Mode have both been named Editors’ Choice by PCMag.com for best anti-spam software. The industry’s most accurate and easy-to-use desktop anti-spam software for consumers and small businesses, Cloudmark DesktopOne and Cloudmark DesktopOne-Pro both received editor’s ratings of “excellent” and are two of only four products so far this year, out of more than 200 products reviewed, to receive perfect five-star ratings. According to PCMag.com, “[DesktopOne’s] community-based filtering technology is phenomenal at blocking spam without throwing away good mail.”
Cloudmark DesktopOne 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. According to PCMag.com, the bottom line is that, “This spam filter’s collective intelligence is great at telling spam from valid mail. It works with any kind of e-mail account and any e-mail client. It’s easy to install and use, and it’s free!”
Available as a subscription-based upgrade for $19.95 per year, Cloudmark DesktopOne-Pro Mode provides protection for multiple e-mail accounts and delivers additional customization and control. Ideal for families, small businesses and power users, Pro Mode enables users to centrally manage their messaging protection for all of their e-mail and webmail accounts, including accounts on other computers. Cloudmark DesktopOne-Pro Mode also offers additional capabilities for manually scanning message folders, trusting specified contacts and automatically deleting old spam messages. As said by PCMag.com, “Cloudmark DesktopOne-Pro Mode does everything its free version does, but for multiple accounts. It can whitelist your correspondents, automatically purge old spam, and more. The price gets you two licenses, so it’s a real steal at $19.95.”
“The reviews by PCMag.com provide further validation of Cloudmark’s best-of-breed messaging security technology that is unmatched by the competition,” said Leon Rishniw, senior vice president of engineering for Cloudmark. “The goal with Cloudmark DesktopOne is to ensure that every e-mail user receives the highest levels of protection against messaging threats. Cloudmark recognizes that people don’t want to manage their spam, they just want their e-mail, which is why we are committed to making free and easy-to-use, world-class anti-spam software easily accessible for everyone.”
Unlike many consumer anti-spam products, which are simply add-on components to other desktop security suites, Cloudmark DesktopOne is a dedicated e-mail anti-spam product created by a company that addresses the needs of the most demanding service provider environments to protect over a billion user accounts worldwide.
