INOVA Turns to Cloudmark to Combat Growing Messaging Security Threats in Brazilian Market
One of Brazil's Leading Hosted Email Providers Selects Cloudmark to Increase Messaging Filtering Accuracy; Reseller Partnership Expands Cloudmark’s Global Reach to South America
San Francisco—July 26, 2010—Cloudmark, Inc., the global leader in carrier-grade messaging security, today announced that INOVA, Brazil’s leading hosted email provider, has selected Cloudmark to protect its customers against messaging abuse from spam, phishing and virus attacks. By using Cloudmark’s high-performance edge mail transfer agent (MTA), Cloudmark Gateway in conjunction with the robust message filtering capabilities of Cloudmark Authority™, INOVA will now provide its hosted email customers with the industry’s most flexible, accurate and fastest messaging anti-abuse solution. INOVA has also partnered with Cloudmark to resell its solutions and deliver messaging security protection to the greater Latin American market.
INOVA offers email and collaboration systems for some of Brazil’s largest telecommunications companies, corporations and Internet service providers (ISPs). Working with more than 500,000 users, INOVA identified the increasing need for email security solutions in Brazil and took action to protect its customer base. INOVA now leverages Cloudmark Gateway with Cloudmark Authority to stop abusive email traffic at the perimeter of the hosted environment, dramatically reducing the impact of spam, virus and phishing attacks on INOVA’s messaging infrastructure. In addition, INOVA resells Cloudmark’s messaging solutions in the Brazilian marketplace as part of its commitment to curtailing the country’s rising spam problems.
“Brazil is widely recognized as one of the world’s largest spam originators, and this issue will only grow as the market matures and the country hosts events like the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics,” said Alex Panagides, chief executive officer of INOVA. “Our relationship with Cloudmark is essential as our customers experience increased demand for email security and spammers target Brazil as an emerging market. Cloudmark’s scalable solution decreases the impact of spam on our messaging infrastructure while enabling us to offer secure and efficient messaging. Furthermore, INOVA is committed to helping businesses throughout Brazil combat messaging threats by reselling Cloudmark solutions beyond our existing customer base.”
