Commtouch (News - Alert) and Openwave Messaging, Inc. are teaming up to integrate Commtouch’s security capabilities with Openwave Messaging’s Universal Messaging Suite, creating an even more secure way to send messages without receiving spam.
With Commtouch Anti-Spam, a combination of its unique cloud infrastructure and patented technology lets it detect spam in real time. Openwave (News - Alert) Messaging now has access to the same technology, which will come pre-integrated with its Universal Messaging Suite.
This will let it block spam and phishing, no matter what language or format it comes in, and the chances of getting a false positive are slim to none.
Not only will the Universal Messaging Suite detect spam with better speed and precision, but it will also include Commtouch’s Virus Outbreak Detection, further protecting users from malware and viruses hidden in e-mails.
Considering how nasty a single e-mail-borne virus can be, any additional protection is welcome.
"With the addition of Anti-Spam protection from an industry-leading partner like Commtouch, Openwave Messaging has a new option for our customers for comprehensive protection against spam and other e-mail-based threats," said Dave Ratner, president and CEO at Openwave Messaging. "E-mail security is a critical part of the service package that our customers expect. With spam still dominating e-mail traffic, anti-spam solutions remain a key part of any e-mail security solution and now with Commtouch's solution, we have a new partner for delivering worry-free e-mail communication to service providers and their subscribers."
We all know that no matter how useful e-mail is, spam and viruses are a huge threat attached to it. It only figures that once we have technology allowing us to instantly send letters and documents across the world virtually, someone would use it to try and trick people out of money or infect them with a virus for whatever reason.
Fortunately, there are ways to detect and avoid both, and Commtouch has a great way to do that. Thanks to this partnership, now Openwave does too.
