Spam today represents 90 billion messages per day, accounting for more than 80% of all e-mail traffic. Researchers from The Radicati Group forecasts that spam percentage will increase to 87% by 2011 despite all Antispam efforts. It is estimated that the spam accounts for about 2/3 of corporate e-mail traffic.

How to take control?

To reduce false positives rate without decreasing Antispam efficiency, suspicious e-mail can be quarantined. Manual spam processing means that your users can inspect a daily quarantine report and white list messages accidentally incorrectly tagged as spam.

  • Daily quarantine reports
  • Works with any email client
  • Actions/Voting links to Authorize sender, Delete or one-time Deliver messages

MScable Anti-spam LIVE is a brand new Anti-spam engine developed in a co-operation with Commtouch. It brings the Enterprise level service back to customers with instant deployment and 100% efficiency.

Anti-spam LIVE provides zero hour outbreak protection to stop Spam the minute outbreaks occur and provides an additional level of accuracy insurance to ensure that system identification accuracy will never fall below unacceptable levels even if the system is improperly configured at the administrator level.

MScable Anti-Spam LIVE Service

In order to increase MScable's current Anti-Spam identification to 100%, the optional Anti-spam LIVE Online Engine has been integrated. Together with the Anti-spam off-line engine to form the first Dual Protection Anti-spam System on the market.

The Anti-Spam LIVE service fully integrates the Commtouch (NASDAQ:CTCH) technology. This combination of Off-line protection and On-line LIVE SPAM detection provides a dual layer of security capable of 100% efficient spam identification.

The result is integrated into MScable's Spam score calculation resulting in even higher spam detection accuracy.

Resource Utilization is the core of MScable's Anti-Spam LIVE.

Antispam LIVE queries the real-time detection centre only when Anti-Spam Standard engine requests additional analysis to more accurately determine if communication is valid or Spam.

Rather than evaluating the content of messages, RPD (Recurring Pattern Detection) analyzes large volumes of Internet traffic in real-time via a network of servers around the world which report back to the real-time detection centre. This is method is very effective against mass spammers, phishing attacks and "text less" spam such as image spam.

The result is:

  • Increased spam accuracy detection
  • Increased end-user productivity
  • Increased security
  • Decreased false positives
  • Decreased administration overhead
  • Decreased storage requirements by rejecting validated Spam.
