MailChannels Announces SMTP Relay


“As a company, it is our goal to protect email recipients from revealing sensitive information, such as financial data, to cyber criminals."

MailChannels, a leading provider of outbound anti-spam technology, today announced its participation in a panel discussion on practical phishing defenses for Email Service Providers (ESPs) at the 34th general meeting of the Message, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) in Dublin, Ireland. M3AAWG brings together leading cyber security industry experts, researchers and public policy officials to address a diverse set of topics and develop best practices.

The panel discussion - 'Practical Phishing Defenses for ESPs’ - will give an overview of the techniques and tools used to detect and remove malicious phishing attacks and stop cyber criminals. The session will take place on June 9, 2015 and feature Ken Simpson, co-founder and CEO of MailChannels. Please note, only M3AAWG and London Action Plan members attending the June 8-11 meeting can attend this session.

“Phishing attacks are fairly common these days but not everyone realizes the potential financial impact on email recipients,” said Simpson. “As a company, it is our goal to protect email recipients from revealing sensitive information, such as financial data, to cyber criminals. We already detect and remove a great deal of spam traffic from the SMTP Relay service and will be discussing how, as a community, we can continue to improve that protection.”

SMTP Relay is a cloud-based email delivery service for web-hosting providers that improves email delivery. The service is both a reactive solution used in the aftermath of an attack, as well as proactive solution, protecting servers in advance. Research conducted by MailChannels reveals that email delivery challenges are the number one source of support tickets reported by web hosting providers, something that can be avoided with the proper technology in place. With SMTP Relay, web hosts can accurately detect and remove malicious email traffic and identify cyber criminal activity before email delivery becomes a problem, or the IP address is blacklisted.
