Keeping ahead of the global growth of spam, Brightmail, the anti-spam software leader, continues its international expansion by exhibiting this year at Infosecurity Europe 2004 from April 27-29 at Olympia London.

Brightmail, the global leader in anti-spam solutions, delivers technology that makes messaging environments secure and manageable. PC Magazine’s editors choice for best enterprise anti-spam software, Brightmail® Anti-Spam protects the email networks of businesses, government agencies and service providers, blocking unsolicited bulk email or “spam” while assuring that legitimate mail is reliably delivered. The Brightmail UK team will be at Stand 108 to demonstrate and discuss Brightmail Anti-Spam software and Anti-Fraud service.

Infosec coincides with the latest data from Brightmail about the global scale of the spam problem. This shows that overall the volume of spam has grown from 7 percent in 2001 to 63 percent of all Internet email as of March 2004. The statistics also show that a fifth of spam is in a language other than English, illustrating how spam is becoming a wider global problem. Brightmail currently processes more than 93 billion emails each month, blocking two billion spam a day and protecting 300 million email boxes globally.

Spamming has become easy and most organisations are defenceless to it. Brightmail Anti-Spam (BAS) software is updated 24x7 with spam filters and virus definitions, its accuracy and ease of administration are its key differentiators between other vendors. It catches over 95% of the spam, updates its filters every 10 minutes and has the lowest total cost of administration. Its technology and operations are 99.9999% accurate and are designed to deliver 1 in 1 million false positives.

To respond to greater international concern from enterprises for better spam protection, Brightmail is expanding its BLOC (Brightmail Logistics and Operations Centre) infrastructure by opening new establishments in Taiwan and Sydney. These centres work closely in unison with the already established installations in San Francisco and Dublin to provide constant monitoring of spam activities globally.
