Adoption of Unparalleled CP Protection Affirms Libero’s Portal Leadership

RazorGate® is designed to protect users and organizations from the threat of internet-based messaging attacks.

Critical Path, Inc. (CP), a global leader in Messaging, Security, and Unified Communications, and Italiaonline, Italy’s first national internet company, today formally announced their latest successful collaboration.

Italiaonline, the largest digital group in Italy and #3 player in the Italian web market, controls the assets and brands of Matrix SpA and Libero SRL, with more than 20 million unique users per month and 14 million active email accounts.

With such a sizable audience, Italiaonline has upgraded its email service to CP RazorGate®, the most advanced anti-abuse solution for total user security and comprehensive protection for service providers.

Email continues its growth trend, and remains the preferred choice for people to communicate electronically, but traditional anti-spam protection is no longer enough.

“We are glad to have Libero upgrading to the latest CP’s RazorGate® solution,” said Ciaran McGovern, VP of Product Management at CP. “RazorGate® is designed to protect users and organizations from the threat of internet-based messaging attacks. Clustering edge-security techniques - including the industry’s fastest MTA with traffic management, anti-virus, anti-spam, and anti-malware technologies from leading providers – CP’s RazorGate® provides world-class messaging security and protection for service providers and enterprises of all sizes,” he added.

“Security is a major issue on the internet, and technology can only address a part of that,” said Gabriele Mirra, Vice President, Business Unit Portal at Italiaonline. “As a company we look at threats and solutions from multiple perspectives in order to give our customers the most complete coverage and confidence possible,” he added.

CP’s innovations with RazorGate® contribute to increasing malware and spam detection accuracy while continuing to deliver cost-effective operation. RazorGate® seamlessly integrates with any existing mail system and is a natural extension for CP’s Message Servers. RazorGate® is available in a variety of deployment options to best meet customer needs: via the cloud, as a software solution, or an all-in-one appliance.
