Irongate Integrates Mailshell's Engine to Block Spam, Phishing

MADRID, SPAIN - February 26, 2007 - IronGate, a leading Spanish manufacturer of broadband safety and integral connectivity solutions directed at small businesses and professionals, today announced its selection of Mailshell Inc., the leading OEM provider of software engines that block email spam and phishing, to provide protection for its IronGate's Net Survibox 266 security appliances. Mailshell has provided a customized version of its SDK Lite engine for integration into IronGate's products, and the combined solution will launch in the first trimester of 2007. More than 6,000 companies, and 15 million consumers, already rely on 'Powered by Mailshell' filters to block spam and phishing.

The initial combined solution will be in IronGate's Net Survibox 266, a complete security appliance for SMBs. In addition to the new spam and phishing protection, Net Survibox combines firewall, VPN, web filtering along with a complete ADSL modem. By integrating Mailshell's engine, IronGate will combine a fast, compact, flexible, complete decision tree with an automatically self-tuning intelligent engine that is updated every five minutes. IronGate will now offer customers consistently accurate results in recognizing image spam, phishing and other emerging forms of email fraud.

"Mailshell offered us easiest integration along with robust protection from the emerging forms of spam and phishing," said Enrique Fernandez del Rivero, founder and Director of Operations for IronGate. "It combines global OEM experience with a flexible platform easily customized to fit our needs."

"IronGate fills an important gap within SMB's requirements," said Tonny Yu, president of Mailshell. "The company is dynamic and focused, and clearly delivers immediate value to its customers and partners."

Mailshell's SDK Lite boasts the same award-winning accuracy as the flagship Mailshell SDK. The primary differences between the two are memory size and speed. The SDK Lite requires only 32KB of code on the device, and can be embedded into any product including mobile devices, wireless access points, desktop routers, firewalls, modems, and other low memory devices.
