Top rating for Mail Server security system from BitDefender

BitDefender UK : 14 May, 2009  (New Product)
Virus Bulletin side-by-side test of Mail Server protection appliances puts BitDefender in VB Spam Gold position
BitDefender's business network product, BitDefender Security for Mail Servers has earned a VB Spam Gold award in Virus Bulletin's first 'live' anti-spam comparative review. When compared to alternative commercial products BitDefender Security for Mail Servers had the lowest false positive rate. The tests were conducted on a new SuSE10 Linux installation as an extension to the Postfix Mail Transfer Agent (MTA).

Virus Bulletin's Anti-Spam Comparative Review put six different anti-spam products through a series of tests, checking both spam catch and false positive rates. Each test set consisted of 1,677 legitimate (ham) emails and 24,320 spam emails. VB Spam Gold awards were presented to products whose spam catch rate was at least 77.02 percent along with a false positive rate under 5.68. The rates for BitDefender Security for Mail Servers were much higher than the average - as they were 84.20 percent (SC rate) and 1.49 percent (FP rate).

Virus Bulletin is recognised as one of the leading specialist publications in the field of viruses and related malware. Virus Bulletin's anti-spam test used a live email stream to expose all products being tested to the same email in real-time. The tests measured a products' spam catch rate and false positive rate with certifications awarded to products that achieved or exceeded predefined benchmarks in both measurements.

Commenting on the award, Bogdan Dumitru, BitDefender's chief technology officer said, "We put BitDefender products through tests, like Virus Bulletin's, to ensure we are consistently not only keeping up with the competition, but also staying ahead of the pack.

"Tests like these allow us to understand what needs to be improved so BitDefender is able to provide customers with the best proactive protection again spam and all other e-threats."

BitDefender Security for Mail Servers brings together proactive antivirus, antispyware, antispam, antiphishing, content and attachment filtering technologies to secure the mail traffic of companies and service providers.
