SANTA CLARA, CA - December 6, 2005 - SC Magazine named the Mailshell SDK, the most widely deployed OEM engine to identify new forms of spam, phishing and email fraud, as a finalist in the 2006 SC Awards' Reader Trust Technology Awards for the Best Anti-Spam. The Mailshell SDK, featuring Mailshell's SpamCompiler technology, was named a finalist based on reader voting from among more than two dozen products originally nominated. More than 6,000 companies and 10 million consumers already rely on 'Powered by Mailshell' products to block spammers and phishers.
"The honor of being the first OEM product named a finalist for the Best Anti Spam award validates our selection as OEM provider by some of the world's most respected security software companies," said Tonny Yu, CEO of Mailshell. "Many of our OEMs evaluated our engine for more than a year before integrating it into their products and deploying it to their customers worldwide. This award reflects the trust they place in us."
By integrating the Mailshell SDK with SpamCompiler technology into their products, Mailshell's OEM partners see consistently accurate levels of anti-spammer and anti-phisher protection. The engine optimizes, compiles and executes more than one million filter checks in a fraction of a second to determine if a message is spam or not. By combining a fast, compact, flexible, complete decision tree with an automatically self-tuning intelligent engine that is updated every five minutes, Mailshell's engine consistently generates highly accurate results in recognizing spam, phishing and other forms of email fraud.
Mailshell's software helps its OEM partners, including Computer Associates, Oracle Corporation, CyberGuard, Panda Software, Earthlink's Aluria division, ZyXEL, Broderbund, Rockliffe and Lyris Technologies, among others, generate new anti-spam revenue, upsell existing products to new anti-spam customers, and cut anti-spam engineering and support costs to near zero. Companies can integrate the Mailshell Engine into their existing product or application using Mailshell's development toolkit, the Mailshell Anti-Spam SDK. Mailshell's SpamCompiler developers hold nearly 30 patents in database modeling and design, and are leading experts in using Artificial Intelligence technology to compile high-level languages into optimized code.
