SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - August 19, 2008) - Abaca Technology Corporation, an innovator in email protection and messaging security, today announced a new competitive upgrade program that allows customers to improve their email security with Abaca's proven 99.997 percent spam catch rate while leveraging their previous investment in a competitive appliance-based or hosted email security solution.

"Customers can typically install the Abaca Email Protection Gateway appliance and configure the ReceiverNet Service within an hour, and then achieve up to 99.997 percent accuracy in email filtering without any ongoing IT management. It is zero-hour security with nearly zero-system administration, giving customers who switch to Abaca the industry's best email protection along with significantly reduced administration overhead."
