SherWeb, a leading Microsoft Hosted Exchange provider, is upgrading its anti-spam service with MailChannels Traffic Control, a carrier-grade email traffic management system. Traffic Control will allow SherWeb's Hosted Exchange users to benefit from improved spam filtering and service reliability without any additional fees.
Traffic Control reduces spam at the connection layer by up to 98% leaving end users with less spam and improving the efficiency and reliability of SherWeb's Hosted Exchange service. Unlike other anti-spam solutions, Traffic Control stops spam based on the reputation of email senders, rather than the content of messages. Connections from known spammers are rejected immediately, connections from suspicious sources are slowed down, and legitimate connections are expedited to SherWeb's mail servers.
"Meeting the needs of our customers is our primary concern. Providing them with only the best solutions such as Traffic Control is fundamental to maintain our high business standards," stated Peter Cassar, CEO and President of SherWeb.
"We are pleased to bring SherWeb users the same carrier-grade email traffic management technology that we have deployed at major institutions such as Wyeth, PG&E, and Cornell University," said Ken Simpson, MailChannels CEO. "We welcome partnerships with innovators like SherWeb, who place a strong emphasis on the cost-effective delivery of reliable email service."
SherWeb understands the severity of spam attacks and challenges that Internet users, corporations and service providers are faced with. "On any given day, 90% of email traffic is spam," said Jean Caron, SherWeb's Director of Technical Operations. "Working with industry specialists such as MailChannels is a great way to continually improve our platform."
