Abaca Technology has released an upgrade to its CLX Anti-Spam Solution, which it claims to achieve 99.98% spam catch rate globally with less than one false positive in 10,000 emails.
The company claims that the Abaca CLX Anti-Spam Solution, which now scales to 500 million users, is flexible enough to fit into any service provider’s infrastructure and supports a variety of system architectures.
The Abaca ReceiverNet technology, which drives the Abaca CLX Anti-Spam Solution, uses receiver reputations to filter spam, blocking 99.9% of spam. The system learns and updates itself by tracking the ratio of spam versus legitimate email in real time for each Abaca protected email user.
In addition, the new offering includes the Abaca ReceiverNet Service, an email filter with multiple integration points. It is installed in the service provider’s email stream, providing advanced protection against spam, viruses and phishing attacks, the company said.
According to Abaca, the new release also features various benefits such as, lowers operational expenses of controlling spam; reduces customer support calls due to missing and misclassified messages; integrates easily into any service provider network with simple interfaces; scales to protect from tens of thousands to hundreds of millions of users; and personalises automatically with ratings for each end user.
Steve Kirsch, chairman of Abaca, said: Spammers are sending growing volumes of unwanted mail and, unfortunately, one sixth of users admit they have responded to spam at some point. Phishing and other mail-borne attacks are increasingly targeted and much more malicious. Providers must protect users from potentially costly mistakes and email messages that attempt to compromise identities, desktops and networks.
