Pearl River, NY (PRWEB) December 18, 2006
Easy CGI (http://www.easycgi.com), consistently ranked among the top ten web hosting providers worldwide, today announced that it has successfully implemented a cluster of Barracuda Spam Firewall servers to protect its customers from spam and viruses. The Barracuda Spam Firewall is an integrated hardware and software solution that protects email services for every shared hosting plan Easy CGI offers.
The Barracuda Spam Firewall provides comprehensive protection against the most current email-borne threats that can cripple an unprotected network. Barracuda Networks proprietary ten-layer defense system not only offers the most comprehensive and advanced anti-spam methods in the industry but also anti-virus, anti-spoofing, anti-phishing and anti-spyware protection.
"Our network processes more than three million email messages during a typical business day, with about 90 percent of those messages being spam. We found that our in-house spam prevention solutions were coming up short, and we consider ourselves fortunate that the Barracuda Spam Firewall fit our requirements so well." said Dan Richfield, president and CEO of Easy CGI. "We performed extensive testing on a number of software and hardware solutions and quickly realized that Barracuda Networks offered the most effective spam and virus protection. By preventing over 95 percent of spam and viruses from reaching our customers' email boxes, the quality of life for every one of our customers is vastly improved."
"Web hosting providers, including Easy CGI, have been hit hard by the recent increase in spam volume, making it more important than ever for these organizations to offer powerful email protection for their customers," said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. "The Barracuda Spam Firewall's architecture provides complete protection against the ever-changing spam variants and other email threats, and we are confident that Easy CGI's customers will see a decrease in the amount of spam delivered to their inboxes."
