SpamCop Is Acquired
E-mail management vendor IronPort Systems Inc. said last week that it has acquired SpamCop, a public anti-spam blacklist that relies on user volunteers to develop its spam database. While financial terms of the deal weren't divulged, IronPort is investing more than $1 million in SpamCop to keep the volunteer-based model viable. The company plans to integrate SpamCop's data with its SenderBase E-mail reputation service, which collects user complaints about spam and tracks the top senders of E-mail by domain and IP address.
