<p>Clearswift launches CS MAILsweeper™ Anti-spam Edition – easy spam protection through pre-configured anti-spam policy</p>
<p>Sydney, 18 August 2003 –Slam spam in 10 minutes flat, with today’s launch of Clearswift MAILsweeper™ Anti-spam Edition.</p>
<p>Recent research by Clearswift, the world leader in managing and securing electronic communications, found that the majority of respondents believed their spam-filtering technology was ineffective. Many organisations relied on only one element of a comprehensive anti-spam policy, such as spam blacklists, while other organisations were not configuring their email filtering software effectively.</p>
<p>“Most organisations expect that once you’ve plugged in your anti-spam technology the problem is solved but this has not been the case,” according to Alyn Hockey, global head of research and development at Clearswift. “CS MAILsweeper™ Anti-spam Edition is the only pre-configured spam filtering software available, giving instant protection from spam without having to rely on post-installation IT admin,” he said.</p>
<p>Organisations need a combination of techniques to protect against spam. “Clearswift MAILsweeper™ Anti-spam Edition features a comprehensive set of pre-configured spam-blocking techniques that provide maximum protection with the minimum of hassle,” said Hockey.</p>
<p>Clearswift MAILsweeper™ Anti-spam Edition eliminates the need to invest time in choosing the components of an anti-spam strategy, and time and money configuring the spam policy.</p>
<p>Clearswift gives customers an automated database service updating daily on all known spam. The email filtering configurations can also be tweaked to refine and extend the anti-spam features according to the nature and needs of the organisation.</p>
<p>Clearswift MAILsweeper Anti-Spam Edition™ can also be used to prevent the circulation of inappropriate images and text and oversized files. It also has features which prevent loss and corruption of data, breaches of confidentiality, entry of viruses and circulation of malicious code.</p>
<p>Note: Alyn Hockey is in Sydney from 18 August and available for interviews</p>
