Web Host NewsSan Diego, CA (HostingCon 2011) – Leading Web hosting provider Superb Internet announced today that it has implemented Outbound Spam Protection from Commtouch® (Nasdaq: CTCH), in order to identify and block spam emanating from its network.

“Commtouch Outbound Spam Protection ensures that our network and infrastructure are protected from the effects of outgoing spam,” said Haralds Jass, president and CEO of Superb Internet. ”We consistently strive to enhance our solution and offer our customers the best possible service and protection, and the Commtouch solution allows us to cut operating costs, while offering the best experience for our customers.”

Outbound spam can be a serious problem for hosting providers, leading to increased costs and customer dissatisfaction as a result of blacklisted IP addresses. Cybercriminal tactics have also evolved recently to use more compromised accounts for sending spam, which introduces additional challenges and costs for hosters.

Integrated within Superb’s account management portal, Outbound Spam Protection enables Superb to track suspicious email messages and identify the senders, whether they are zombies, malicious or hacked accounts. Superb can then pro-actively reach out to its customers that may have been compromised, or disconnect spammer accounts.

“We are pleased to be working with leading hosting providers such as Superb Internet,” said Francois Depayras, Commtouch vice president, Americas sales and business development. “Commtouch’s innovative, proven outbound protection solution, which is part of Commtouch’s complete email security suite for Web hosting providers, enables hosting companies to reduce operating expenses, increase operational simplicity and put their full focus on building the business.”

Commtouch will be presenting its Internet security solutions at HostingCon 2011, booth #232, at the San Diego Convention Center, August 9-10, 2011. At the booth, service providers can enter to receive a free Domain Analysis Report, to identify compromised accounts in their networks.
