ISPs see the benefit of OEM opportunity

BlackSpider Technologies, a world-leader in e-mail content filtering services, today announced an OEM partnership with altoHiway, a leading ISP that supplies Internet Services exclusively to UK business customers.

Under the terms of the agreement, altoHiway will rebrand BlackSpiders leading-edge e-mail content filtering services as MailController. The service provider will offer MailController Anti-Spam and Anti-Virus services to its 7,000 business customers and through its reseller base. altoHiway is confident that it has chosen the ultimate e-mail security solution and is particularly pleased to be resolving the spam problem that its customers face.

We had a clear demand from our customers for an anti-spam solution that was extremely effective yet non-intrusive, commented Chris Wood, Director of Sales and Marketing from altoHiway. And from our perspective as an ISP, we wanted a service which would reduce the amount of unwanted e-mail that was travelling across our network.

We pride ourselves in only offering our customers premier solutions, continued Wood, so it was important to us that the solution we chose was best-of-breed, reliable and highly scalable. After evaluating several of the market-leaders, it was apparent that BlackSpiders MailControl service met all of our requirements and, particularly, we were impressed with its ability to offer the highest levels of spam detection. Having trialled the service internally first, we are confident that our customers will be delighted with the service when it is launched today.

John Cheney, CEO of BlackSpider Technologies commented, The growing tide of spam, that is still on the increase, seriously impedes business efficiency. We are delighted that through altoHiways MailController service, customers will be provided with an unbeatable choice for virus and spam protection services.

With BlackSpiders spam detection rates consistently at least 98%, we are confident that customers of MailController will see the benefits immediately," continued Cheney. "We are very pleased to have been chosen by altoHiway as their preferred partner and look forward to working together in the future."
