Woburn, Massachusetts – (The Hosting News) – December 12, 2006 – Web hosting platform provider, ValueReseller, has enlisted address-based email threat protection firm, Reflexion Networks, to protect its reseller community and small and midsize business customers from spam, viruses and identity theft.
ValueReseller, ranked the No. 1 hosting provider by Webhost Directory, provides a unique, multi-platform web hosting system that enables resellers to offer premium web hosting, email and e-commerce services under their own brand. With Reflexion’s Total Control (TC) technology, ValueReseller’s hosting companies can provide their customers with affordable, proactive control over their inbox for a safe and pristine email experience every day.
Lack of confidence in email is a well-chronicled problem, resulting in wasted end-user time and direct IT expenditures. The flood of unwanted email is an ongoing problem that can cause expensive business disruptions and the loss of customers for web and email hosting providers. Most small and midsize businesses don’t have the time and resources to evaluate email security solutions, and rely on their web hosting partner to provide this expertise. By integrating Total Control into its email security service, ValueReseller offers its hosting partners a uniquely effective solution that protects their infrastructure from directory harvest attacks and prevents spam, phishing attacks and viruses from reaching users’ inboxes.
Tom Mulkern, CEO of ValueReseller explained, ”Despite our best efforts with other products, we always found that spam continued to be a significant problem. Reflexion Total Control gives us a more proactive, effective and durable solution that protects our resellers and customers from spam, viruses, phishing and dictionary attacks. Total Control vaporizes dictionary attacks before they hit our network, saving valuable bandwidth. Its unique Protective Address Defense enables us to leapfrog the email initiatives of much larger companies, and provide our customers with an unparalleled level of control over access to their inbox.”
Reflexion’s configurable solution, is designed so that users may have the ability to control their inbox, assuring delivery of desirable content and blocking the delivery of undesirable content. An easy-to-use Control Panel at the bottom of every email provides a simple means for users to update their allow/deny selections as necessary, resulting in a service tailored to each individual’s needs. In addition, Reflexion’s unique Protective Address Defense, with Address-on-the-Fly,” empowers users to disclose a purpose-specific address to web merchants, online newsletters and friends/family to ensure their mail gets delivered, regardless of content. Reflexion’s unique approach alleviates user concerns about ISPs erroneously blocking the mail that they want.
David Hughes, CEO of Reflexion Networks added, ”Our goal is to restore confidence in email by giving users the tools that they need to use email, e-commerce and the Internet in general without fear of digital assault and battery. Total Control is the ideal solution for web hosting companies and ISPs that want to protect their customers from rapidly evolving email threats. Our solution invests in users both control and accountability — they make their own decisions about the senders who are permitted to communicate with them, which they can change at any time if a sender abuses their privilege of access. As a result, ValueReseller’s customers can enjoy renewed confidence and trust in their email experience.”
