(The Hosting News) – Open-source security infrastructure next step, according to Commtouch’s vice president of technologies Gabriel Mizrahi, can be taken by augmenting it with commercial solutions. Mr. Mizrahi will be speaking about this subject at WebhostingDay this week in Cologne, Germany.
Commtouch is a leading global provider of messaging and Web security technology, offering easy-to-integrate solutions for hosting and service providers that increase customer satisfaction while reducing capital and operating expenditures.
“Leading hosting companies are already using Commtouch’s solutions to reduce infrastructure and help desk costs and improve spam detection with fewer false positives,” said Ofer Tal, vice president of international sales and business development at Commtouch. “This improved service helps to enhance their customer satisfaction and bottom line.”
Commtouch’s cloud-based spam, phishing and email malware protection, along with its perimeter defense technologies, have been shown to reduce hosting providers’ hardware expenses by up to 85% and user bandwidth costs by as much as 80%, and significantly decrease help desk calls and IT administration time.
Commtouch’s solutions can leverage existing infrastructure investments through a set of integration tools into open-source and commercial messaging software, as well as provisioning platforms such as Parallels Plesk, H-Sphere and cPanel. Specifically, Commtouch provides the following easy integration tools:
* Plug-ins for common open-source email filtering packages such as SpamAssassin
* Milter for Sendmail and Postfix
* Connector to hosted and managed Microsoft Exchange Server environments.
