3Com Selects Commtouch GlobalView Mail Reputation Service as Anti-Spam Filter Service of its X-Family Unified Security Platforms
Monday June 2, 5:00 am ET



SUNNYVALE, Calif. & MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3Com Corporation (Nasdaq: COMS - News) and Commtouch (Nasdaq: CTCH - News) today announced that 3Com is licensing Commtouch’s GlobalView™ Mail Reputation Service as the 3Com® Anti-Spam Filter Service of its 3Com Unified Security Platforms.

With the addition of the Commtouch anti-spam capability to the X-Family unified security platform, not only will 3Com customers secure their networks from internal and external attacks, they will effectively eliminate 80 percent or more of the junk e-mail they receive. 3Com customers already are realizing the benefits of the Commtouch solution in their 3Com security platform.

“Since implementing the new 3Com Anti-Spam Filter Service at the perimeter, we have noticed at least an 80 percent decrease in spam and no false positives at all,” said Mike Kunz, network manager for the Collinsville, Ill., Community Unit School District 10. “Our internal anti-spam solution has shown a significant drop in workload and messages it has to filter, which has resulted in better bandwidth utilization on our local area network.”

The X-Family product line, which includes the X5 and the X506 platforms, combines zonal firewall, virtual private networks (VPN), TippingPoint® Intrusion Prevention System, e-mail filtering, Web content filtering and bandwidth management with enterprise-class quality of service, and IP routing capabilities.

“3Com’s technology strategy includes integrating best-of-breed applications and technology from our partners into our switching, routing and security products,” said Scott Hilton, vice president of enterprise products for 3Com. “The highly accurate classifications performed by the Commtouch GlobalView service enable customers to work more efficiently without worrying about losing important messages.”

Another 3Com customer, Jerry McKitterick of Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Mo., said: “We had been getting complaints from users who managed shared/departmental mailboxes that they were receiving too much spam, so we decided to try 3Com’s Anti-Spam Filter Service. We are seeing between 40 and 50 thousand connections blocked every day, and four months after implementing it, I have not had a single complaint about a false positive. The users who manage the shared mailboxes tell me that they're seeing much less spam than they did before the 3Com Anti-Spam service was activated. My experience is that you can set it and forget about it.”

Commtouch’s GlobalView™ Mail Reputation Service forms the basis for 3Com’s Anti-Spam Filter Service in the X5 and X506 platforms, offloading around 80 percent of all unwanted mail at the perimeter of the organization. Based on a real-time risk assessment of sender reliability, the GlobalView service distinguishes between “good” and “bad” senders with only the knowledge of the sender’s IP address. Benefits for end-user customers include an overall increase in organizational security and a reduction in the necessary bandwidth and back-end IT resources needed for handling email.
