Commtouch^® (NASDAQ: CTCH), a leading provider of Internet security technology
and cloud-based security services, today announced the general availability of

On-Premise Email Security augments the existing market-leading messaging
security suite that includes: Commtouch Anti-spam, Virus Outbreak Detection,
IP Reputation, and AV, which are cloud-assisted services for service provider
environments. The new services deliver additional simplified messaging
security and optimization functionality, enabling Commtouch to better address
the requirements of any service provider that offers email services to end

With the new solution, Commtouch partners can more effectively address the
twin challenges of improving email Quality of Service (QoS) for customers
while reversing the ever-rising cost of service delivery. Because the new
services include technology, process, and people, efficiency can be achieved
even when partners lack internal resources to manage email security efforts,
or they have a complex email infrastructure requiring a customized solution.

The new solution leverages email security technology assets which Commtouch
acquired as part of its purchase of Eleven GmbH. The Eleven products are
already in use at global organizations such as BMW, SAP, Siemens and Deutsche
Telekom / T-Online.

"Our launch of Commtouch On-Premise Email Security for security providers
further expands our worldwide opportunity for growth," said Shlomi Yanai, CEO
of Commtouch. "This new service continues the transformation of Commtouch from
a vendor of security technology components and cloud-assisted detection
services, to a Security-as-a-Service supplier that can provide partners with
options to greatly lower cost, simplify ownership, and maximize performance
for email. Commtouch On-Premise Email Security offers market-proven benefits
for service providers desiring the highest level of email security without the
ever-increasing expense typically associated with achieving it."
