SUNNYVALE, Calif. (PRWEB) January 15, 2008
The public launch is celebrated with an Anti-Spam Cartoon; a short animated clip about Commtouch Recurrent Pattern Detection(TM) technology, viewable at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnD50mSvLPk .
The blog has provided a crucial communication resource internally for Commtouch employees since last January, and has been a running commentary on email security issues such as MP3 spam, holiday spam, and how to catch a zombie quickly. Commtouch decided to open the blog to the public to serve as an email security resource for the media, partners, and anyone interested in gaining insight into email trends, and potential early warning of new threats directly from the experts.
"Today email threats spread around the world in a matter of minutes. With Commtouch's unique view of over a billion email messages per day, we can rapidly spot developing trends and provide warning of new threats," said Rebecca Steinberg Herson, vice president of marketing at Commtouch. "The Commtouch Cafe blog allows the experts at Commtouch - many of whom typically work behind the scenes - to share their knowledge in a broad forum."
The blog is expected to be an essential resource for Commtouch's network of licensing partners, as well as the media and industry analysts; it provides descriptive data and knowledgeable commentary about emerging spam and malware outbreaks, and the zombie or bot networks used to distribute and host them.
