The company's says its Outbreak Detection technology adds a new layer of protection against spam, phishing, spyware, virus and worm attacks sent out in e-mail blasts.
Tumbleweed Communications announced today that it has extended its MailGate email security suite with Recurrent Pattern Detection technology. The new addition enables Outbreak Detection in a new layer of defense against breaking spam, phishing, spyware, virus and worm attacks sent out in e-mail blasts.
Statistics compiled by the company indicate less than 10% of inbound enterprise message traffic is legitimate e-mail. Since the volume and complexity of malicious traffic grows, the company believes that multi-layer multi-technology approaches are proving to be the most successful at stopping both known and unknown e-mail threats.
The company has positioned the addition of Outbreak Detection to its MailGate products as providing customers with a more complete approach to inbound e-mail security.
"We're committed to providing our customers with an expansive arsenal of security features in order to combat increasingly sophisticated malicious email attacks," said Tumbleweed CTO John Thielens. "Outbreak Detection, combined with Tumbleweed's other protection technology, ensures that our customers are comprehensively protected."
