Canadian ISP offers spam scanning to their internet and hosting customers.

Stargate Connections Inc., Burnaby, BC based ISP has revamped its e-mail filtering services by selecting Roaring Penguin Software's CanIt-PRO anti-spam solution. Customers are now able to block spam on a per user basis in order to better customize their individual spam filters.

Stargate Connections provides anti-spam and anti-virus to over 200 domains with a daily e-mail volume of over 300,000 e-mails.

“Our previous spam solution was not able to keep up to the ever increasing amount of spam, and updates would often fall behind” explains Chris Murray, Stargate's Chief Network Administrator. “While our previous solution worked, it was a one-size-fits-all spam filter. If a customer felt that their mail was being filtered too aggressively – or not aggressively enough – we couldn't make changes without affecting every other customer. That's all changed, though, since installing CanIt-PRO.”

With CanIt-PRO, Stargate Connections has been able to offer users a choice of anti-spam options with the option of creating basic, intermediate and advanced filtering packages for customers to choose from. Furthermore, individual users can check the messages held in spam quarantines.

CanIt-PRO has also allowed Stargate Connections to reduce the amount of spam reaching its mail servers and tying up valuable bandwidth. “With CanIt, we can now drop all of the spam before it hits our mail servers ensuring that we are only letting clean e-mail into our systems.”

CanIt-PRO can be purchased as a software or appliance-based solution and is ideal for Web Hosts, ISPs, education campuses and large organizations where global filtering policies must be balanced with individuals’ ability to have the final decision over what is and is not spam. CanIt™ products offer the industry's most complete and flexible anti-spam and anti-virus solutions. They can be deployed in any enterprise e-mail environment, including on all Linux and UNIX servers. As a stand-alone gateway appliance, CanIt can protect e-mail environments running non-UNIX servers, such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes and Novell Groupwise.
