10 March, 2004 – London, UK – With the premiere of Gartner’s landmark Magic Quadrant report on Enterprise Spam Filtering, FrontBridge Technologies, a fast growing and leading provider of enterprise message security services, was listed in the prestigious “Leaders Quadrant” of the influential study. Gartner assesses vendors' “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute” and defines leaders as vendors who are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction, and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market. Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is considered the technology industry’s most recognised means of evaluating vendors.

Gartner also noted that “Leaders” offer the best-of-breed features and functionality that enterprises require for effective spam filtering and demonstrate capabilities to reach the next level of customer requirements to effectively support large enterprises.

“Our placement in the Magic Quadrant, as a vendor within the Leaders Quadrant displaying strong vision, demonstrates FrontBridge’s sophisticated approach to email security and shows clear differentiation in this crowded market,” said FrontBridge CEO and president, Steve Jillings. “FrontBridge’s emphasis on the four key attributes that enterprises care most about – low false positive rates, ease-of-implementation, industry leading reliability and zero management burden on the individual user – have set the standard for enterprise message security and positions us as the solution of choice for large enterprises.”

FrontBridge Addresses Anti-Spam Issues and Beyond
FrontBridge’s suite of managed services delivers a complete Enterprise Message Security solution with offerings that include managed spam/virus filtering, secure messaging, content and policy enforcement, and disaster recovery services. This ability to offer its customers a comprehensive portfolio of message protection – beyond anti-spam – contributed to FrontBridge’s placement within the Leaders Quadrant. In addition, the company’s expansion of operations into EMEA demonstrates its commitment and ability to provide support to global corporations, further accentuating its leadership credentials.

“FrontBridge’s placement in the Leaders Quadrant is testament to our superior vision, sophisticated enterprise customers, and demonstrated ability to execute. These winning traits will allow us to expand our market leadership,” Jillings concluded.

TrueProtect: An Answer to Enterprise Spam Filtering Needs
FrontBridge’s TrueProtect Message Management Suite has been vetted and proven by more than 1350 enterprise customers. These enterprises have selected FrontBridge’s TrueProtect Message Management Suite because it delivers industry-leading functionality not available from in-house software, appliance-based solutions or centralised service providers. Specifically, FrontBridge delivers the industry’s lowest false positive rate, provides the industry’s best reliability (zero down time since the service’s inception in 2001), and offers the easiest solution to manage and implement. Its unique implementation process, which places control over corporate email with the IT department, typically has customers up and running in under an hour.

“As a large, multi-national company, we had three primary criteria for selecting our email security solution: effectiveness, breadth of services and a small management burden,” stated Mark Shields, director of IT for Kyocera Wireless Corp. “FrontBridge blocks almost all of the threats to our email infrastructure, including MyDoom and other viruses like it, and offers us additional email security options such as disaster recovery and content filtering. Just as importantly, Kyocera receives very few false positives, and we never have to think about updating the service – it simply works extremely well.”

This powerful value proposition has allowed FrontBridge to add over 300 customers per quarter for the last three consecutive quarters. More information on FrontBridge and Gartner’s Enterprise Spam Filtering Magic Quadrant report is available via FrontBridge’s Web site,
