    It's about time the technology wizzards team up to prevent the majority of spamm from reaching your in-box.

    LAS VEGAS. - Nov 18, 2002 - Today at COMDEX Fall 2002, Cloudmark, the company that stops spam before it costs you money, announced the availability of Cloudmark Authority. Unsolicited e-mail or spam is rapidly becoming the silent killer of a business's most precious resource - its employee's time. In addition, offensive spam can generate serious corporate liability and headaches for the human resources department and it is a constant drain on the enterprise's infrastructure. Already, spam comprises nearly one in three corporate messages exchanged this year, according to Radicati Group estimates. Authority cracks the genetic code of spam solving this problem for enterprises by integrating the most popular spam-fighting network - proven since 1998 with a predictive Bayesian engine. Authority's innovative approach of analyzing spamDNA to fight unsolicited email offers the most effective spam prevention with near-zero false positives and lowest total cost of ownership (TCO). Cloudmark is offering a spam-free guarantee; a 30-day trial for companies to witness the recovery of lost productivity and company resources.

    "Fighting spam is an ongoing battle, like fighting cockroaches," said Joyce Graff, VP and research director at Gartner Inc. in Stamford, Connecticut. "There's always one more. Just when you think you have control, they change their tactics. The market is searching for a good spam exterminator -- a set of tactics that will not only find yesterday's spam, but will evolve as the game evolves and help to find tomorrow's spam."


    The DNA of Spam
    Spammers mutate message structure to avoid detection just like genes in DNA can be mutated. Just as scientists predict whether someone will have a particular disease by looking for specific gene mutations, Authority predicts whether a message is spam by looking for specific mutations in message structure called spamGenes. Authority uses spamDNA, a collection of spamGenes, to feed its Bayesian classifier which literally learns how to stop spam more effectively. Finally, Cloudmark improves Authority's effectiveness by constantly evolving the spamDNA it gets from Cloudmark SpamNet, the most popular peer-to-peer, collaborative spam fighting service now with some 200,000 users and the largest database of spam in the world. http://www.cloudmark.com/

    Hey, I just came to this forum to post this link:

    http://www.cloudmark.com

    Guess I am slow. It is a dream to install. I tested it by releasing a bunch of spam from my spamcop account... It worked well and caught all the spam.

    How does it compare in catching positives and not catching false positives to spamcop?

    We use 17 lists and 9 profiles in a weighted system (including spamcop) and found no one list alone is 100%. But using various lists and profiles together is pretty damn good.

    This just seems like spamcop with a little more funding.

    Chet nothing else compares to Cloudmark for proper filtering of spammy messages. The longer a ISP or Intranet server uses it the more accurate it becomes.

    Well that worries me. So you are saying it builds upon past choices and then applies them to a group of people? If true, that means it then makes its choices based on the aggregate norm, so what happens when a new user pops in who actually is interested in getting a bigger penis and some viagra to go with it? Will his legit mail be mis-marked? At least spam cop sticks to the facts, ip address.

    Fuzzy logic applied to emails matching a pattern alone are going to catch many false positives for some people. I am in some casino programs, what if everyone else on my server isn't? Will my casino mail get blocked because it hits some trigger? Any system that tunes itself on the fly is bound to be ineffective to people who live outside that norm.

    I hate spam, but I cannot live with missed/lost emails.

    Let's put it this way ...Cloudmark licencees are 99% statisfied with the results and can fine tune the filtered results. If they don't want ANY Casino -Mortgage -Porn -Viagra or other spammy subject e-mails then they don't get any delivered into the users in-box. Attempts to circumvent/defeat their smart filter with HTML and script tricks is automatically trashed.
