BitDefender announced that its anti-spam engine has been awarded the Checkmark PC anti-spam certification by independent UK certification outfit West Coast Labs. By blocking 97 percent of all spam during the certification process, BitDefender was awarded the Premium Checkmark Award, the highest certification possible.
The new anti-spam engine was tested as part of the overall BitDefender Mail Protection for Enterprises product suite. Available immediately through BitDefender’s automatic update system, the new anti-spam engine offers a number of new features, including an advanced image filter to protect users from the growing use of image based spam. Through a combination of these new features and the product’s existing spam signatures and URL database, BitDefender was able to attain the high detection rate needed for premium certification.
“BitDefender Mail Protection for Enterprises is a highly customizable anti-spam solution thanks to the use of various downloadable modules,” said Richard Thomas, test engineer, West Coast Labs.
