As a preemptive email security service that sits between the Internet and our customer's email gateway, SOFTe' service prevents email threats from ever reaching your Miami network. Postini is a recognized leader in effectively stopping spam, phishing, viruses, directory harvest attacks and other email threats through its patented, multi-layer technology. No other vendor provides such wide scope and in-depth protection from email intrusions in Los Angeles.
SOFTe' Postini is proven to be one of the most effective solutions for eliminating spam. In a comparison test of leading anti-spam products as reported in Network World magazine, December 2004, Postini rates the highest for anti-spam effectiveness---with the best overall balance of accuracy (97%) and false positives (.08%).
As the incidence and severity of email viruses has nearly tripled in past year, SOFTe consistently demonstrates superior anti-virus capabilities. SOFTe' multi-layer antivirus protection coupled with its patent-pending preEMPT technology protects your email system from the initial outbreak of a virus---its zero hour---until an antiviral signature is available. Thus, SOFTe prevents viruses from ever getting inside your network, and keeps viruses such as netsky and bagle from infecting PCs and turning them into zombies that can be taken over to send even more spam.
SOFTe blocks phishing attacks by applying several hundred spam filtering rules targeted specifically at phishing techniques.
Directory harvest attacks not only lead and fuel spam attacks, they sap mail server performance and affect quality of service. SOFTe performs real time inspection of every IP address that connects to its service. Patented IP analysis based on more than two-dozen variables that determine if the "behavior" of the message exhibits the characteristics of a DHA, spam, or virus, enables us to block connections without seeing the actual message. Processing more than 450 million inbound SMTP connections every day from 10 to 15 million distinct IP addresses, Postini currently blocks more than half of SMTP connections and then applies rigorous content filtering for the balance of messages.
