Verio Email Defense Solution Protects Customer Domains from Email Threats
Verio, a subsidiary of NTT Communications and a leader in global IP solutions, today announced the availability of the Verio Email Defense Solution, a service that provides comprehensive messaging protection against spam and other email threats for shared hosting customers. To address the needs of small to medium sized businesses, Verio will add this solution to the entire shared hosting product set, thereby continuing to offer products and services that help customers grow their online businesses.
Partnering with MX Logic Inc., a leading provider of email defense software that ensures email protection and security for service providers, the Verio Email Defense Solution provides enhanced customer security with reliable and comprehensive messaging protection, while significantly reducing spam-related network, server and storage costs. Designed for a distributed architecture with carrier-grade reliability, the flexible software platform enables Verio to deploy the Email Defense Gateway, and then customize its solution by adding filtering modules as needed.
With the Email Defense Solution, Verio can help to ensure that spam, unwanted content and attachments are blocked, and minimize any viruses, worms and other email threats such as fraud and phishing scams. The solution also features comprehensive spam filtering and around-the-clock messaging infrastructure attack protection, blocking vulnerabilities at the perimeter before entering the network.
"Verio’s Email Defense Solution cut our spam by a solid 80 percent, giving us a huge improvement in staff productivity," said Francis McInerney, managing director of North River Ventures LLC, a Verio customer. "Verio’s Email Defense clearly identifies spam, making it easy to control and eliminating huge headaches for all our people. Most importantly, fewer headaches for us mean fewer headaches for our clients."
Verio has included Whitelist and Blacklist capabilities to provide customers with additional controls to effectively manage the flow of email into their accounts. Whitelist capabilities allow customers to create and manage a list of email addresses and domains that will not be filtered, while the Blacklist function enables a customer to create and manage a list of addresses and domains that will be denied and not delivered.
"Spam is no longer just an electronic nuisance that companies can simply ignore. It has become a costly and dangerous technology issue for companies of all sizes, threatening the security of their networks, as well as employee productivity," said Gwenael Hagan, vice president of product strategy for Verio. "We’re helping our customers address these threats by offering a comprehensive solution to guard against spam and the viruses that often accompany it. By offering such enhanced products and leading technologies, we allow our customers to do what they do best – focus on their core business, while we provide solutions that enhance productivity and protect infrastructure, in one complete package."
