Bizanga Integrates Mailshell SDK for Email Reputation, Spam and Phishing Protection

SAN MATEO, CA - May 23, 2008 - Bizanga, the global company behind the most scalable and full-featured email and message processing platform, today announced an integration partnership with Mailshell, a leading OEM provider of email reputation, anti-spam and anti-phishing engines. Integration was completed in the first quarter of 2008 and the joint solution has already deployed at one of Bizanga's top-tier European ISP customers.

Through its partner program and innovative collaboration capabilities, Bizanga is creating a network of best-of-breed providers that enables customers to access the applications and services that best suit their business need and operating environment.

"We chose Mailshell in response to explicit customer demand," said David Harvey, head of alliances for Bizanga. "We're able to provide customers with a broad range of filters, fully integrated into our platform."

Bizanga's customers can now access LiveFeed, Mailshell's solution that quantifies email reputation via advanced statistical models. Unlike binary 'good' or 'bad' rating systems, LiveFeed produces graduated trust ratings that automatically adjust over time as reputations change.

"We see growing demand among service providers for high-speed, highly scalable messaging platforms like Bizanga's Intelligent Message Processor," said Tonny Yu, CEO of Mailshell. "ISPs expect high throughput as well as high detection rates. This makes Bizanga the perfect complement for the more accurate, highly scalable and language-agnostic reputation solution provided by LiveFeed."

About Bizanga: Bizanga is the global company that developed the most scalable and full-featured email message processing and security platform, the Intelligent Message Processor(R) (IMP). The IMP can be deployed to protect an email infrastructure from blended threats including spam, viruses, denial-of-service and harvest attacks. It can also be used to perform parental control, compliance/encryption services or simply to manage infrastructure migration or new service deployment. Designed especially for service providers, the IMP is extremely easy to integrate with existing infrastructure, including provisioning systems and message store. IMPs handle email for millions of mailboxes throughout North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Bizanga sells direct to Internet service providers, cable operators, fixed-line and mobile operators. The technology is also available on an OEM basis to application software vendors.
