SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Abaca Technology Corporation, an innovator in email protection and messaging security, announced today that it has partnered with Authentium, a leading developer of security software, to incorporate Command Antivirus into its Email Protection Gateway™. The partnership enables Abaca to offer customers a complete email security package that includes anti-spam, anti-phishing, and anti-virus protection.

“Abaca provides the most accurate anti-spam solution available today, allowing us to guarantee 99 percent accuracy in filtering spam,” said Bill Kasje, director of business development at Abaca Technology Corporation. “We wanted to provide anti-virus protection that would deliver that equivalent best-in-class value and reliability for our customers. We also needed a solution that would integrate seamlessly with our Email Protection Gateway. Authentium’s Command Antivirus met our requirements in every way.”

Certified by Checkmark, West Coast Labs, and a winner of multiple Virus Bulletin awards, Authentium's Command Antivirus uses the world's largest database of virus definitions, and is one of the most widely deployed virus detection technologies in the industry. Authentium provides software development kits (SDKs) that enable ISPs, resellers and other business partners to easily integrate Command Antivirus and other security offerings into their product lines. Once installed, Authentium security software delivers industry-leading protection, along with automated updates to ensure continued effectiveness.

“Authentium’s Command Antivirus SDK is easy to use, and we had no integration issues at all,” said Kasje. “Now we can offer customers zero-day virus protection that complements our own anti-spam solution—and requires very little ongoing support from us. It’s a win all the way around.”
