MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Commtouch^® (NASDAQ: CTCH), a

businesses.

After a rigorous and highly-competitive selection process, Web.com selected
Commtouch for integration into its email infrastructure, which today serves
millions of customers. A key selection criterion was that the solution
achieves the highest possible detection performance while avoiding costly
false positive detections. As a result, Web.com selected the following
Commtouch services:

  o Inbound Anti-Spam – based on Commtouch's patented Recurrent Pattern
    Detection™ (RPD™) technology, delivers real-time blocking of spam and
    phishing in any language or format with almost no false positives
  o Outbound Spam Protection – blocks and identifies the sources of 99 percent
    of outgoing spam, avoiding the cost and inconvenience of IP addresses
    being blacklisted
  o Virus Outbreak Detection – provides real-time protection for users from
    email-borne malware

All of the services are powered by the Commtouch GlobalView™ Cloud, which
analyzes more than 12 billion transactions per day to derive unique
intelligence regarding both existing and emerging security threats. This
intelligence then automatically drives decisions regarding whether to block or
allow a given email.

"At Web.com, we constantly look for ways to provide better services to our
customers. With the addition of the Commtouch services, we can now better
safeguard our customers from the nuisance of spam emails, without the risk of
having their critical communications erroneously blocked," said Jane Landon,
chief technology officer at Web.com. "By effectively eliminating spam
outbreaks originating within our network, we can focus our efforts on serving
our customers better rather than fighting the spammers."

"We welcome Web.com to our team of partners," said Brett Wilson, vice
president of products at Commtouch. "We continue to see strong adoption for
our services by the service provider and hosting communities. With spam
attacks now lasting just a few minutes, our ability to block attacks within
seconds versus others taking many minutes, is the difference between success
and failure for our partners."
