SUTUS Selects Commtouch Anti-Spam and Zero-Hour Virus Protection for Its Small Business IT Solution(July 20, 2010)
SUNNYVALE, CA and VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 07/20/10 -- Commtouch® (NASDAQ: CTCH) and SUTUS Inc., the company behind Business Central, a device that houses all of the IT and communications needs for the small business or branch office, announced that SUTUS has added Commtouch's Anti-Spam and Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection to its solution.
The agreement enables SUTUS' Business Central to deploy Commtouch's patented anti-spam messaging protection and Commtouch's Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection, which protects Business Central customers from viruses and spam in the first minutes of a malware attack, long before anti-virus signatures are available.
Commtouch's technology brings a new dimension of security to customers who use SUTUS' Business Central as their all-in-one solution for data, networking and voice services. The technology simplifies the job of the IT manager, small business owner/manager and individual user in securing business networks from viruses, worms and Trojan downloaders.
"After thoroughly investigating potential security solutions, we selected Commtouch's technology, as we found it provides the highest level of security for our small business solutions," said Shawn Chute of SUTUS. "The ability to deploy Commtouch's Zero-Hour security solution from within the Business Central appliance means that the small business customer gets to take full advantage of yet another big business solution. This is very much in keeping with our commitment to bring simple, affordable and effective solutions to our customers."
"As spam and malware attacks continue to grow in sophistication, small businesses, with typically limited resources, require messaging security solutions that can adapt to continuously changing threats," stated Francois Depayras, Commtouch vice president Americas sales and business development. Commtouch's cloud-based Anti-spam and Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection will enable SUTUS' Business Central customers to receive the broadest protection from messaging attacks, from the earliest moments of an attack."
Spam has become a serious problem for large and small businesses, with analysts estimating global spam rates reaching 87% and higher. With massive bots capable of spewing millions of messages per hour, email and security providers are faced with bloated bandwidth and deteriorating customer satisfaction. By proactively scanning the Internet and identifying massive virus and spam outbreaks the minute they emerge, Commtouch's technology provides proactive virus and spam blocking that is language-agnostic and signature-independent.
