Hosted Email Provider Selects Cloudmark to Safeguard More than Four Million Customers against Spam, Phishing and Virus Attacks
San Francisco—July 19, 2010—Cloudmark, Inc., the global leader in carrier-grade messaging infrastructure and security solutions, today announced that Hostopia, a leading provider of hosted email and web services, has selected Cloudmark to protect its customers against messaging abuse from spam, phishing and virus attacks. With Cloudmark Authority™, combined with Cloudmark Sender Intelligence, Hostopia is able to provide its more than four million email customers with the most flexible, accurate and fastest messaging anti-abuse solution available on the market.
Hostopia, through its private label program, enables small and medium-sized businesses to establish a web presence, generate leads and increase their sales online. The organization has invested over a decade of development in its innovative hosted email platform. After experiencing rapid platform adoption, Hostopia put an initiative in place to take its already commercial grade anti-abuse solution to the next level.
“At Hostopia, we constantly strive to provide our customers with the highest quality hosted web and email services, and we found that Cloudmark Authority was the clear choice to protect our environment,” said Dirk Baghat, CTO of Hostopia. “While our previous commercial grade technology worked well to combat spam, we wanted to further advance our solution to enhance our messaging infrastructure. With Cloudmark Authority, we can achieve improved performance while delivering the most advanced protection against spam, phishing and virus attacks.”
Cloudmark Authority provides Hostopia with the industry’s fastest and most accurate protection from messaging abuse by using a combination of unique Advanced Message Fingerprinting™ and real-time threat reporting from the Cloudmark Global Threat Network™. The solution’s global network consists of trusted users in more than 190 countries. Offering the security industry’s highest level of messaging protection, Cloudmark Authority detects abuse with up to 99 percent accuracy and near-zero false positives. In addition, Cloudmark Authority with Cloudmark Sender Intelligence gives Hostopia highly accurate sender reputation data to further improve their email security. Cloudmark Sender Intelligence uses real-time data from the Cloudmark Global Threat Network to create a comprehensive sender reputation service that delivers timely and accurate reputation on good, bad and suspect senders, which further protects Hostopia’s messaging infrastructure from attacks and reduces false positives through the use of good-sender data.
“As malicious attacks continue to increase and with spam levels at an all-time high, it is more important than ever for hosting providers to offer their subscribers advanced protection against spam and malicious attacks,” said Jamie de Guerre, CTO of Cloudmark. “With Cloudmark Authority integrated into Hostopia’s existing Sendmail MTA, Hostopia is able to offer customers increased protection for messaging abuse, improve capacity and lower operations workload.”
