SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, 2006 - Cloudmark, the proven leader in real-time messaging security, announced today that Tele2, Europe's leading alternative carrier, has selected Cloudmark's Authority solution for anti-spam, phishing protection and first line virus defense. Renowned for industry-leading speed and accuracy, Cloudmark's messaging security solutions will provide Tele2's subscribers across Europe with real-time threat detection at the service provider's network edge.
ISPs around the world have seen a significant increase in more sophisticated spam, phishing and virus threats, with 85-95% of email traffic being some form of spam. Integrated onto the CommuniGate Pro Dynamic Cluster Internet Communications platform from CommuniGate Systems, Cloudmark Authority consistently provides 98%+ accuracy in fighting messaging abuse. High accuracy levels translate into increased customer satisfaction and reduced weight on the messaging infrastructure, keeping spam and fraud out of email subscribers' mailboxes, and rapidly stopping new threats. The solution's language-agnostic capability is an additional plus for multi-national/multi-lingual networks.
The explosive rise of spam and phishing also burdens ISPs with increasing costs associated with network processing power and maintaining message stores, 25%+ of which may be consumed by spam. This year, messaging security ranks at the top of most providers' priority lists with many looking to augment or replace existing systems with solutions optimized to increase speed and accuracy while decreasing overhead and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Jon R. Doyle, Vice President Business Development at CommuniGate Systems says comprehensive, best-of-breed solutions are key to staying ahead of the curve. "At CommuniGate, we are very impressed with the results Cloudmark demonstrates for Tele2. The company's Authority engine exhibits significantly greater accuracy than other spam filters that had been previously used, and the bottom line benefits were obvious immediately."
Cloudmark's comprehensive solutions for detecting and blocking spam, phishing and computer viruses combine the industry's most efficient fingerprinting algorithm systems with a global community of trusted real-time reporters. With more than 100 million mailboxes protected worldwide, Cloudmark's reach and advantages in terms of speed and accuracy continue to grow while competitive methods struggle to keep pace with the deluge of new threats.
Jacinta Tobin, Vice President of Business Development at Cloudmark, commented, "We are delighted to welcome Tele2 aboard as a customer. As one of Europe's leading service providers, Tele2's choice of Cloudmark is a testament to Cloudmark's global leadership in fighting abuse internationally and is an important step forward in our European expansion."
