F-Secure Introduces A New, Easy To Use, Automatic Spam Filtering Solution For Corporate Customers

F-Secure Corporation has released new versions of its award winning email content security solutions. The new versions of F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper(tm) and F-Secure Anti-Virus for Microsoft Exchange(tm) introduce major improvements, including the possibility to automatically detect and filter spam and other unwanted messages from incoming email traffic.

The amount of junk messages flooding into user’s mailboxes is rapidly becoming one of the biggest challenges in IT administration. For this reason the possibility to automatically filter out annoying spam messages from email traffic is today an extremely important part of any comprehensive email security solution. F-Secure is helping organizations to get rid of the spam problem by introducing a new solution that will detect spam and remove it from the end users inbox.

F-Secure Spam Control can be installed as an option to F-Secure’s email content scanning solutions that already today provide virus detection and removal capabilities to organizations around the world with world-leading response times to new threats. Working alongside F-Secure’s virus scanning engines, F-Secure Spam Control engine detects spam automatically using advanced content analysis and categorization. Messages that are found to be spam by F-Secure Spam Control are marked at the gateway level so that they can later be placed to specific spam folders in the user’s mail client. The end users remain in control of the messages and have the ability to retrieve and view spam tagged messages if needed. High accuracy spam detection rates are achieved and maintained by scanning email using advanced content analysis, combining multiple filtering mechanisms and updating the product with frequent automatic updates from the F-Secure Anti-Spam Lab.

“Our aim was to make a solution that is easy to install, use and maintain, and that would integrate tightly with our existing products making it a complete email security solution for our corporate customers. The feedback we have received from our early beta customers indicates that we have succeeded in our objective”, says Ari Alakiuttu, the Business Channel Director at F-Secure.

The City of Malm?¶ in Sweden has been using an early version of F-Secure Spam Control in conjunction with their existing F-Secure Internet Gatekeeper product. “We are very happy with the results we have achieved together with F-Secure”, says Patrik Flensburg, responsible for the IT operations at the City of Malm?¶. “The F-Secure Spam Control provided low TCO, was easy to take into use and it detects spam reliably and with good accuracy” adds Mr. Flensburg.
