New Data Centers Support Rapid Growth of Mailshell's Cloud-based Reputation Filters

SAN FRANCISCO, June 10, 2009 - Mailshell, the leading provider of traffic reputation, anti-spam and anti-phishing engines for OEMs, today announced the launch of 10 new data centers on five continents. The expanded global presence provides a 100x increase in throughput and further decreases latency of LiveFeed, Mailshell's cloud-based real-time traffic reputation service. Mailshell LiveFeed identifies and quantifies reputation, and 'Powered by Mailshell' filters block spam and phishing, for more than 40 OEM partners and millions of end users worldwide.

The company now has data centers throughout the world including the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Russian Federation, Hong Kong, China, Japan, Singapore, Australia, India, Argentina and Panama. Mailshell's engines for OEMs include intelligence for each client to identify and query the fastest and most available data center for its LiveFeed queries. With the new data centers, Mailshell's overall capacity now exceeds more than 100 billion LiveFeed requests per month. The company publishes a global system status map for its data centers on its public website.

"We're investing in greater capacity and availability to accommodate LiveFeed's dramatic growth in Europe, Asia and South America," said Tonny Yu, CEO of Mailshell. "Already in 2009, several OEM partners have increased their global footprint or switched from other providers to 'Powered by Mailshell' solutions."

Mailshell LiveFeed is a real-time 'in the cloud' data service that quantifies traffic reputation via advanced statistical models. Unlike other reputation services that provide only a binary 'good' or 'bad' rating, LiveFeed provides granular trust ratings with automated adjustment over time as reputations change. By focusing reputation on mathematical models, rather than simply an 'IP black list' approach, LiveFeed provides more accurate, highly scalable detection.
