As a messaging provider, we care deeply about the online safety of our customers and their level of confidence, so that they don't have to worry about security issues
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2007
Everyone.net (http://www.everyone.net), a leading provider of hosted email services, has joined the global Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG), an organization made up of network operators and vendors teaming to reduce spam and email abuse, for the purpose of providing a safe and reliable messaging experience.
Widely regarded as the most effective organization for addressing the explosion in email abuse, MAAWG now represents over half a billion email boxes worldwide. Everyone.net will join this broad range of service providers and vendors, which include top names in the industry, in developing best practices to limit network access to spammers and in identifying new email threats. The organization also serves as the industry's voice on issues of public policy.
Everyone.net places top priority on safeguarding its customers from online threats such as spammers, phishing and denial-of-service attacks. The company's managed, multi-layer security infrastructure, called Total Protection, constantly adapts to stay ahead of the 'bad guys' while also allowing customers to avoid the burden of managing their own email security infrastructure. The Total Protection software-as-a-service (SaaS) suite includes firewall perimeter protection, SpamShield anti-spam, and an extremely sophisticated anti-virus technology, proven in extensive testing to provide the best possible protection against viruses, spyware, zombie attacks, and phishing.
"As a messaging provider, we care deeply about the online safety of our customers and their level of confidence, so that they don't have to worry about security issues," according to Michael Rose, chief executive officer of Everyone.net. "We feel it's crucial for messaging providers to become trusted conduits - 'good Internet citizens' - by whatever means we have at our disposal. So, we are very encouraged by the work among MAAWG members and look forward to participating to make the Internet a safer place for all."
