<p>New Cloudmark Authority forApache SpamAssassin Brings Carrier-Grade Spam, Phishing and Virus Protection to Mid-Market and Independent Internet Service Providers</p>
<p>eCorner, the Australasian distributor of Cloudmark, the global leader in carrier-grade messaging security, today announced messaging security solutions optimised for service providers with fewer than 500,000 mailboxes. In the past year, seven of the top ten ISPs/carriers in North America have selected Cloudmark Authority to protect millions of consumers from spam, phishing and virus threats. As part of its ongoing commitment to completely serve the Australasian carrier market, eCorner is offering a software plug-in for service providers who have deployed Apache SpamAssassin. This new solution brings the industry’s fastest and most accurate messaging security solution to ISPs of all sizes (tier-1, mid-market, and independent).</p>
<p>Named the “best Linux-based anti-spam solution,” SpamAssassin is deployed in more than 100,000 organisations for email filtering using a diverse range of tests to identify spam in virtually any email system. Cloudmark Authority for Apache SpamAssassin enables users to significantly increase accuracy while experiencing greater operational efficiency and drastically reduced administration. Cloudmark’s Advanced Message FingerprintingTM and real-time, corroborated feedback from the Global Threat Network scans messages for all forms of abuse using an in-memory cache of verified fingerprints that is updated every 45 seconds.</p>
<p>“SpamAssassin is the most widely adopted open source solution for content filtering,” said Justin Mason, Vice President of Apache SpamAssassin. “With the Cloudmark Authority plug-in for SpamAssassin, users get a best-of-breed solution that easily integrates into their existing infrastructure with improved accuracy in blocking spam and malware while lowering CPU usage and storage requirements. The result is cost-effective, carrier-grade messaging security for mid-market and independent ISPs.”</p>
<p>John Debrincat, Managing Director of eCorner, said, “It's well known that service providers use up much of their server resources on junk email and the more they can reduce spam and stop spending precious man-hours on tweaking servers, the more efficient their businesses will run. The powerful combination of SpamAssassin’s email filtering with Cloudmark’s advanced fingerprinting technology lowers CPU utilisation and reduces the incidents of false positives, which makes a huge difference in cost of ownership and overall customer satisfaction.”</p>
<p>“Cloudmark has a long, successful history of working with SpamAssassin,” said Vipul Ved Prakash, Cloudmark’s founder and Chief Scientist. “Authority for SpamAssassin enables existing users to easily harness the power and accuracy of Cloudmark Authority within the framework of the Apache SpamAssassin platform. We are pleased to extend our presence in the Open Source world to mid-market and independent ISPs by delivering our best-of-class solution in this easy form factor.”</p>
<p>Vipul is the author of Vipul’s Razor, the Open Source edition of Cloudmark’s anti-spam technology, which has over 1 million unique installations, most of which are coupled with SpamAssassin.</p>
