San Francisco—November 10, 2009—Cloudmark, Inc., the global leader in carrier-grade messaging security, today announced that Network Solutions', a leading provider of Web solutions for small businesses, has selected Cloudmark to provide spam, phishing and virus protection for Network Solutions' more than 2.2 million email subscribers. By using Cloudmark Gateway, a high-performance edge mail transfer agent (MTA), in conjunction with Cloudmark Authority, Network Solutions' hosted email customers will receive the industry's fastest, most flexible, and most accurate edge message filtering solution.

With the recent re-launch of Network Solutions' business class email solution, the company needed an advanced messaging solution that would offer increased spam and virus protection for hosted email customers, as well as increased operational efficiency. Network Solutions chose Cloudmark due to its unparalleled accuracy in stopping messaging threats and abuse across multiple vectors. With the Cloudmark solution in place, Network Solutions has already increased its filtering accuracy by 10-15 percent. Furthermore, Cloudmark's unmatched performance has enabled Network Solutions to easily scale as its customer base grows.

"Cloudmark gives us the ability to offer our customers the fastest and most accurate response against spam attacks," said Navin Ganeshan, senior director of Web Presence Services for Network Solutions. "For small businesses, email is a lifeline to their customers so it is very important to us that we offer our customers the most effective spam and virus protection software in the industry."

As a high-performance MTA, Cloudmark Gateway with Cloudmark Authority prevents unwanted email from impacting user inboxes and messaging infrastructure by performing intelligent protocol and content filtering at the perimeter of the hosted environment. The result is a solution that significantly reduces infrastructure needs and improves the quality of service offered to customers.

In addition, due to a unique combination of Advanced Message FingerprintingTM technology and real-time corroborated feedback from Cloudmark's Global Threat NetworkTM system, Cloudmark detects messaging abuse with approximately 98 percent accuracy and near-zero false positives, while delivering the highest level of protection against new threat outbreaks and attacks.

"With the sophistication of malicious attacks increasing every day, it is important for hosting companies to provide their customers with advanced protection from these spam, phishing and virus attacks," said Jamie de Guerre, CTO at Cloudmark. "Network Solutions is committed to providing its customers with superior products and service and with Cloudmark Gateway, together with Cloudmark Authority, Network Solutions is able to offer its customers a truly reliable email service."
