Excedent and SonMedia Partner to Offer Family-Safe Email to ISP Customers
Families Provided Email Accounts Protected From Spam and Viruses
Vienna, Virginia (August 20, 2003) – Excedent Technologies, a global leader in business email outsourcing, anti-virus and Spam filtering solutions, today announced a partnership with SonMedia Online, a provider of dial-up Internet access and integrated safety solutions for families across America. Excedent will provide all SonMedia customers with email access that is free from the nuisances on the Internet such as Spam, viruses and pornography.
“We chose Excedent as our email hosting partner because they bring a complete, managed email solution to the table,” commented Jeffrey Sesol, VP of Technology for SonMedia Online. “We wanted a single vendor that was expert in hosting the email, filtering the Spam, scanning for viruses, etc., rather than having to assemble a team of providers.”
“While the Internet is a wonderful resource for information, education and entertainment, it is also a direct pipeline into your home for pornographic and other material most parents find objectionable or dangerous for their children,” stated Michael Rhodes, CEO of SonMedia Online. “Our goal is to make the Internet a safe and educational experience for families and their children.”
“SonMedia and Excedent share the same goal of offering a safe and secure environment for Internet and email users,” explained Patrick Matthews, Chief Executive Officer of Excedent Technologies. “We are pleased to be serving SonMedia’s existing and future customer base with our complete email solution that features Excedent’s unique Spam DNA Filtering® system to protect families from unwanted and inappropriate emails.”
