SAN FRANCISCO - April 11 , 2011 - Mailshell, the leading provider of Internet security engines for OEMs, today announced its selection by AdaptiveMobile to provide email filter technology as part of AdaptiveMobile's Network Protection Platform. AdaptiveMobile, which protects one in six mobile subscribers across the globe, will integrate the Mailshell Anti-Spam engine for protection against spam, phishing and email-borne fraud. Thousands of companies and millions of consumers rely on 'Powered by Mailshell' engines for internet security.
Mailshell provides complete and consistently accurate protection against email fraud, phishing and spam. The solution includes a local SDK, as well as access to Mailshell LiveFeed, a real-time 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. Mailshell has more than 60 LiveFeed data centers in more than 20 countries on six continents for maximum availability and minimum latency.
"AdaptiveMobile has unique and unparalleled insight into the issues facing mobile operators and their subscribers today," said Tonny Yu, CEO of Mailshell. "We're pleased to complement its suite of best-of-breed filtering technologies and further improve the protection it offers."
"We selected Mailshell because it provides accurate filtering along with the largest, most accessible network of data centers," said Gareth Maclachlan, COO, AdaptiveMobile. "Mailshell meets mobile operators' requirements of maximum accuracy with minimum latency in all geographies."
Mailshell's SDKs are available on more than 10 operating systems and require as little as 32KB of code on the device. Mailshell's SDKs are embedded into security, networking and messaging products including software appliances, SaaS platforms, gateway security software, desktop security suites, UTM, mobile devices, wireless access points, firewalls, modems, and other low memory devices. In addition to SDKs for email protection, Mailshell offers a DNS SDK for secure, encrypted DNS protection and the LiveFeed SDK for URL filtering and content categorization.
