UnitedHosting, a leading provider of UK and USA based web hosting services is pleased to announce its recent introduction of Mailfoundry – an industry leading hardware-based spam and virus filtering solution.
Dedicated MailFoundry servers sit in front of the companies existing email servers protecting customers from the latest spam, virus and phishing based emails.
Mailfoundry’s spam filtering minimises false positives ensuring UnitedHosting customers receive only genuine email with less than a 1 in 1 million chance of legitimate email being quarantined. Much like a PC virus scanner, MailFoundry uses definitions which are updated every 5 minutes by real human spam editors to ensure even the most recent spam outbreaks are filtered guaranteeing maximum effectiveness.
Following UnitedHosting’s own research in late 2006, it was no surprise that results highlighted ‘spam’ to be the number one concern for the majority of customers. “99.99% uptime is all well and good, but when our own consumer research presented us with spam as the number one concern, we took this as an opportunity to respond to our customers needs. MailFoundry was the answer” said Matthew Wallis, Director of United Communications Ltd
UnitedHosting believes in this type of investment in its infrastructure and prioritises its client demands away from the industry norm of cost cutting and stretching unsuitable technology. Very few web hosting companies offer this Enterprise standard in filtering, and instead opt for the free less effective software based spam control methods.
MailFoundry has been added to UnitedHosting shared and reseller hosting packages at no extra charge, adding yet more value to existing service and enforcing the company’s commitment to providing value packed hosting solutions for all of its customers.
Its also worthy of mentioning that UnitedHosting was voted #1 UK Shared Web Hosting provider at UK Web Host Directory for February 2007 for the best performing company under this category, just one of many recent awards UnitedHosting was delighted to accept.
