Cloudmark Equips Cable & Wireless Barbados With Industry-Leading Security for Messaging Services

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2006 -- Cloudmark, the leader in real-time messaging security, is providing Cable & Wireless (Barbados) Limited with the Cloudmark Authority platform, renowned for the industry's fastest, most accurate anti-spam, anti-phishing and zero-hour anti-virus filtering technology. Cable & Wireless Barbados hosts an ISP infrastructure used in 11 countries and has deployed Cloudmark's Authority platform to shield subscribers from the rapid rise in messaging abuse.

According to Elon Richards, Senior Coordinator of Internet Operations for Cable & Wireless Barbados, accuracy in message filtering as well as easy integration with the existing messaging infrastructure was key for the carrier.

"We now have a single interface where general email management can be done," says Mr. Richards. "Adding Cloudmark's Authority for secure messaging to our CommuniGate Pro Internet communications application server was very easy. With it, we achieve superior accuracy, which keeps our customers happy and reduces the burden on our infrastructure."

According to Jon R. Doyle, Vice President, Business Development at CommuniGate Systems, "We chose Cloudmark as a partner to provide sophisticated, collaborative anti-spam and anti-phishing technology. They offer the highest levels of protection against messaging threats without hindering CommuniGate's performance. We are pleased to work with best of breed providers like Cloudmark who share our focus on customer, and end-user, satisfaction."

Cloudmark's comprehensive solutions for detecting and blocking spam, phishing and messaging-borne viruses combine the industry's most efficient fingerprinting algorithm systems with a global community of trusted real-time reporters. With more than 100 million mailboxes protected worldwide, Cloudmark's reach and advantages in terms of speed and accuracy continue to grow while competitive methods struggle to keep pace with the deluge of new threats.

According to Jacinta Tobin, Vice President, Business Development for Cloudmark, the deployment by Cable & Wireless Barbados advances the power of Cloudmark's network. "We are delighted to work with strong partners like CommuniGate Systems and Cable & Wireless in growing a trusted global threat detection network that maintains the industry's highest levels of accuracy," says Tobin. "In joining forces to fight messaging abuse, we help service providers achieve lower operational and infrastructure costs, and achieve superior customer satisfaction as subscribers increasingly look to their ISPs for help."
