Zero-Hour Antivirus and Real-Time Spam Protection Now Available to MDaemon Users

SecurityPlus for MDaemon: the next generation of email Antivirus and Spam Protection

Grapevine, Texas (USA) -- October 25, 2006 -- Alt-N Technologies today announced SecurityPlus for MDaemon® as its newest weapon in the fight against the complex threat of email-borne viruses, spam and other malware. SecurityPlus incorporates traditional signature based anti-virus technology as well as a totally new proactive Outbreak Protection technology to deliver the strongest protection available for the new 9.5 version release of the MDaemon Windows-based email server.

Outbreak Protection is a revolutionary, real-time anti-spam, zero-hour anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-phishing technology capable of proactively protecting an MDaemon email user automatically and within minutes of an outbreak. Outbreak Protection requires no heuristic rules, content filtering, or signature updates. Instead, it relies on the analysis of "patterns" associated with an email message and compares them to similar patterns collected from a half billion email messages sampled daily, in real-time from live Internet email traffic. The resulting analysis can detect outbreaks in "Zero Hour" -- much faster than traditional filter and signature based solutions.

"From the beginning, we designed the MDaemon email server to offer customers the best protection available against email threats," said Arvel Hathcock, CEO of Alt-N Technologies. "We are committed to ensuring that our products offer the most competitive features in the marketplace. The new name of SecurityPlus reflects this approach and keeps our customers protected with proven technologies from our partnerships with Kaspersky Lab and Commtouch."

SecurityPlus for MDaemon integrates the anti-virus protection from Kaspersky Lab and Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD™) for Anti-Spam and Zero-Hour™ Virus Outbreak Protection from Commtouch into a single email security solution.

"Threats such as spam, phishing spyware and viruses can cripple any organization if they are not detected and prevented at the earliest possible moment," said Avner Amram, Executive Vice President of Commtouch. "Alt-N has recognized the value of blending proactive, analytical technologies with existing anti-virus prevention methods to offer their customers a solid security product for email."

"Alt-N Technologies has a solid understanding of email security issues," said Vitaly Bezrodnykh, Business Development Director of Kaspersky Lab. "We are pleased to continue our relationship together and have our multi-threaded anti-virus engine play an important role in the overall security solution for their MDaemon users."
