Cloudmark Inc. Key Developments

Regional Wireless Carrier Reduces Mobile Spam with Cloudmark

Cloudmark Inc. announced that a regional wireless carrier has dramatically reduced mobile spam using Cloudmark Security Platform. The carrier is currently using Cloudmark to detect and block email-to-SMS spam. The carrier’s customers are also now able to report unsolicited SMS messages to the Spam Reporting Service (SRS), which is powered by Cloudmark. Before implementing Cloudmark, the carrier was unable to monitor or detect SMS spam messages. As a result, high volumes of spam traffic were negatively impacting both its network and the reliability of its services. The carrier sought to protect its subscribers and its network from mobile threats while reducing unnecessary traffic on its network. Within just months, the carrier has blocked more than 20 million messages, helping increase customer satisfaction and reduce complaints related to unsolicited messages.

Cloudmark, Inc. Announces Executive Changes

Cloudmark Inc. announced that George A. Riedel has joined the company as its chief executive officer. He succeeds Hugh McCartney, who has served as CEO since 2005 and will continue in an advisory role with the company. In addition to his role at Cloudmark, Riedel is also an independent board member who currently serves on the boards of several leading technology companies. Most recently, he served as president of business units and chief strategy officer of Nortel Networks.

Cloudmark Inc. Announces the Release of Cloudmark Security Platform for Email

Cloudmark Inc. announced the latest release of Cloudmark Security Platform for Email. This version of Cloudmark’s carrier–grade messaging security solution enables service providers to apply the powerful security available to protect their messaging infrastructure and traffic against rapidly evolving spam, phishing and malware attacks. Cloudmark Security Platform for Email features new enhancements for flexible deployment, simplified policy management, increased message-delivery control and optimized message-handling performance. Cloudmark Security Platform for Email is the trusted messaging security platform of choice for service providers, protecting more than 450 million email boxes worldwide from ever-evolving messaging threats. With the Cloudmark solution, service providers can quickly and efficiently detect and block all forms of messaging abuse before it impacts their subscribers, helpdesks, networks, and infrastructure. This improved protection frees backend mail store servers, storage systems and other network infrastructure from unnecessary traffic, reducing hardware requirements and lowering overall operational costs. Cloudmark recently uncovered and delivered protection against a malware campaign targeting consumers with a false free pizza promotion. When individuals opened a coupon, they unwittingly downloaded a Trojan, turning their computer into part of a malicious botnet. Such campaigns have a negative impact on consumers and cause a flood of complaints calls to service providers unless a comprehensive solution, such as Cloudmark Security Platform for Email, is in place. Cloudmark Security Platform for Email features a flexible policy engine and an integrated high-performance reputation system enabling the solution to identify and block malicious senders and content before networks and subscriber services are affected. The heart of the solution is Cloudmark’s message inspection engine, combined with data from Cloudmark’s Global Threat Network, the world’s most comprehensive repository of global threat intelligence, which delivers sender reputation and message threat data in real-time. Cloudmark also enables real-time spam, phishing, and malware detection in the outbound traffic stream, helping to prevent spam outbreaks that can result in blacklisting of the service provider network and an increase in subscriber complaints about outbound email delivery. Cloudmark Security Platform provides full visibility into detected threats, as well as monitoring and reporting metrics on the performance of messaging infrastructure. While providing the high levels of filtering accuracy against all forms of messaging abuse, Cloudmark Security Platform requires significantly less processing power than traditional open source MTAs and competing commercial solutions, enabling significant consolidation of messaging infrastructure. Service providers can flexibly deploy the platform with Cloudmark’s high-performance mail transfer agent (MTA), or with their existing MTA infrastructure to gain control over SMTP traffic and improve their messaging defenses. The main features and benefits of Security Platform for Email include: newly consolidated standard SMTP and SMTP proxy capabilities; enhanced user interface; new message-delivery policy capabilites; improved monitoring capabilities; and cluster-aware, API-based message queue search and manipulation capabilities.
