Cloudmark integrates Sun Solaris 10 to Provide the Industry's Most Scalable, Reliable Messaging Security Solution

Cloudmark Teams with Sun Microsystems to Solve Service Providers' Escalating Messaging Abuse

San Francisco, October 02, 2006 – Cloudmark has optimized its Authority anti-spam, anti-phishing and anti-virus solution on the Solaris™ 10 Operating System (OS) to provide carrier-grade anti-abuse message filtration. Cloudmark Authority™ on the Solaris OS has been deployed extensively by tier-1 service providers globally, protecting over 50 million Cloudmark subscribers.

Cloudmark has also become a Principal Partner in the Sun Partner Advantage Program, for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). Cloudmark earned this status by meeting Sun's stringent criteria for excellence as a supplier of messaging security solutions to service providers, and by sharing Sun's strategic vision and technical commitment to excellence.

With the Solaris 10 OS, Cloudmark customers have access to the popular features that are unique to this operating system, such as Dynamic Tracing (DTrace), Predictive Self-Healing and Solaris Containers. These sophisticated features of the Solaris 10 OS provide Cloudmark customers with increased network security, optimal performance and less overall server downtime.

"As email abuse skyrockets, service providers are facing increased pressure from subscribers to block unwanted messages. Increased abuse in the mailbox is one of the highest causes of customer churn so this is a critical business issue." said, John F. Davis, Vice President, Vice President, Strategic Marketing Operations and Partner Marketing, at Sun. "Cloudmark has developed an accurate and comprehensive anti-abuse solution that radically cuts down the risk of abuse hitting the subscriber's mailbox."

Cloudmark Authority is the most accurate anti-abuse solution for service providers and is consistently the fastest to respond to new virus, spam and phishing threats. Cloudmark technology is also scaled to be a carrier-grade solution, processing and deciphering messages at unparalleled speed. This is critical when dealing with increasingly high message volumes. By dropping the bulk of email that gets into the network, Cloudmark significantly reduces operating and CAPEX costs by reducing the load on the network infrastructure.

"Service Providers are experiencing an unprecedented increase in messaging abuse that traditional anti-abuse solutions cannot address," says Jacinta Tobin, VP Business Development for Cloudmark. "Cloudmark and Sun have partnered to provide best of breed solutions to the meet the stringent requirements of optimal accuracy combined with fast message processing."
