Computer Point Selects Ipswitch IMail Server for Power, Scalability and Security

Leading Developer Chooses IMail for Its Enhanced Functionality and Its Ability to Provide a Reliable, On-Demand System with 99.99544% Uptime

LEXINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 25, 2006 -- Ipswitch, Inc., a leading developer of network monitoring, messaging and file transfer solutions, today announced that Computer Point, a Florida-based developer of highly specialized software applications and commercial Web sites, has chosen Ipswitch IMail Server as its e-mail solution. Computer Point selected IMail for its high availability, unique security features appropriate to a broad range of small- and mid-sized business (SMB) clients and its ability to work within Computer Point's Web hosting environment.

"IMail has been the perfect product solution for us," said Don Might, co-founder of Computer Point. "We selected it for its feature set, its power, its security for our Web hosting environment and because of the value for the price. We looked at a bunch of options ranging from Microsoft® Exchange to a variety of offerings over the Internet and across all kinds of businesses, with an eye out for the best business solution."

Might continued, "For approximately 300 clients, thanks to IMail and our clustered server approach with automatic failover, we've experienced only two hours of down time. That is two hours out of 43,800 hours, for an uptime stat that may be worthy of the record books: 99.99544 percent."

Operating in today's highly competitive SMB space, Computer Point's business challenges include providing its 300 clients with cutting edge technology and networking, as well as offering them a secure, reliable and cost-effective Web-based email solution that is bullet proof and can maintain impressive uptime statistics on a clustered server platform.

IMail Server Secure combines standards-based messaging protocols with carrier-grade anti-virus protection and automatically updated anti-spam technology. This advanced security enables the product to achieve new levels of integration protection for critical messaging systems. IMail's anti-spam system, made available through Mail Filters™, enables a unique combination of machine and human intelligence that catches over 95 percent of spam and reduces false positives to just one per million messages. The Mail-Filter's data center pushes updated "Bullet Signatures" to the IMail system every 10 minutes, giving administrators the most relevant and powerful anti-spam protection available.

"With IMail Server, Ipswitch ensures SMBs that they will always have a technologically advanced product that's in step with the changing dynamics of email security," said Richard April, vice president of worldwide marketing at Ipswitch. "IMail represents our commitment to delivering a state-of-the-art product to IT professionals at SMBs, so that they can get back to doing what they do best -- running their business -- instead of focusing on the minutiae of maintaining their messaging systems."
