London, November 19th 2002 – BorderWare Technologies Inc announced today a major new development for controlling SPAM and unwanted email. Intelligent, automated SPAM filtering is the latest innovation in the MXtreme™ Mail Firewall range of appliances.

SPAM is a growing problem for email administrators and users. Not only is it time wasting, the content of much of it is offensive. Current solutions based mostly on keyword filtering are ineffective because they are difficult to maintain and suffer from too many false positives. Maintenance is difficult and time consuming because keyword filters have to be customised for local use and constantly updated.

The MXtreme solution introduces two new technologies to tackle this problem. These technologies are self-learning, automatically recognising a company’s legitimate mail and filtering out SPAM. Once set up little or no tuning or administration is needed. Tests have shown that these technologies can block 99.5% of unwanted e-mail with no false positives.

"The dramatic increase in SPAM has made it imperative for businesses to take action. Not only is it important to filter out unwanted SPAM, it is vitally important to address e-mail security at the boundary of the network," said Joyce Graff, VP and Research Director at Gartner, "Just as you need network security, you also need e-mail security, watching for Denial of Service attacks and Directory Harvest Attacks, and keeping trash out of your real e-mail."

BorderWare's MXtreme mail firewall offers the protection organisations need.

"SPAM is out of control today", says Peter Cox, International Vice President of BorderWare Technologies Inc. "Until now, companies have had to rely on labour-intensive manual filters. MXtreme changes the equation with adaptive, self-learning technology. We offer the best SPAM protection available."
