Cloudmark Introduces CloudFilter™, a Next-Generation Email Security Offering That Leverages the Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloudmark, Inc., the global leader in carrier-grade messaging security, today introduced its new CloudFilter email security solution, a cloud-based email security offering specifically designed to free Web hosters and service providers from the capital and administrative burden of managing email security, which continues to rise due to unpredictable levels of spam. As a result of direct feedback from tier 1 and Web hosting customers, Cloudmark identified a need for a cloud computing solution that is affordable, scalable, easy to manage and that delivers industry-leading filtering accuracy. The CloudFilter™ solution was developed with service providers and Web hosting providers in mind and architected to meet their unique needs.

For service providers, the CloudFilter solution delivers the same carrier-grade accuracy that major tier 1 global service providers have come to depend on Cloudmark for, while eliminating the hardware and operational costs associated with managing an on-premises email security solution. CloudFilter™ for service providers also offers service providers infinite scalability to meet their extremely high operational demands for capacity, performance and service quality.

For Web hosters, the CloudFilter solution was designed to solve the current pain points that these organizations face when it comes to managing their email security services. CloudFilter™ for Web hosters enables hosting providers to deliver a value-added service to their customers without the current infrastructure and administrative burden of managing security themselves. Additionally, the CloudFilter solution enables Web hosters to foster and strengthen customer relationships by providing a branded, seamless experience for both Web hosting and email services––this is critical to the growth strategy of Web hosting companies.

“Web hosting companies that are already providing SMBs with hosted services are uniquely poised to help drive mass adoption of new cloud computing services,” said Soeren von Varchmin, vice president, SaaS and Service Providers International, Parallels. “The CloudFilter solution offers the type of service Web hosters are looking for to enable them to make the most of this opportunity by providing differentiated, premium cloud computing services to their large existing customer base. The CloudFilter solution combines the cost and management benefits of cloud computing-based services with performance and accuracy, which is key for hosting companies. We’re very excited to see new cloud computing initiatives launching that are specifically designed for Web hosting companies, like the CloudFilter solution.”
