SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)-- Apr 20, 2009 Commtouch (NASDAQ:CTCH) today announced the availability of its new Online Security Center, featuring timely data and statistics regarding malware outbreaks, and other messaging and Web threats.

A new feature developed by the Commtouch team, and unveiled today, is a Web Security Lab that identifies the top categories of Web sites infected with malware or manipulated by phishing.

"As the dangers in the Internet landscape multiply, Commtouch's ability to monitor new threats and outbreaks provides a significant advantage," said Amir Lev, president and chief technical officer of Commtouch. "We see the GlobalViewTM concept as more than a brand name; it is Commtouch's philosophy of examining what is happening around the world, then extracting and synthesizing valuable data in order to provide advanced security tools. Commtouch and our over 120 OEM partners worldwide rely on these unique capabilities to protect against email and Web threats in real time."

The comprehensive Security Center includes tools for monitoring malware outbreaks, spam and zombie/botnet trends and a real-time outbreak monitor displaying outbreaks and their geographic origin dynamically. These tools are, in many cases, displayed by Commtouch's OEM partners on their corporate web sites.
