ORF wins VBSpam Award!

BUDAPEST, Hungary (May 5, 2010) - Vamsoft ORF, leading software based anti-spam solution for Microsoft® Exchange and IIS SMTP was awarded the VBSpam Verified award with highest honors during the May testing period.

The independent test conducted by Virus Bulletin's Anti-spam team included 23 leading spam filtering solutions from around the world. The aim of the testing is to benchmark available spam filters in their ability to protect inboxes from the onslaught of spam e-mails. The testing and verification procedure has become an industry standard in the measuring and benchmarking the efficiency of anti-spam solutions.

Of the 20 vendors who signed up for the test, ORF ranked 4th overall during the one month testing period. During the course of the test, ORF blocked 99.13% of all incoming spam which included image spam, spam in foreign character sets (e.g.: Russian or Greek) and large spam.

More importantly though, ORF managed to achieve an impressive 0.00% false positive rating, meaning it did not classify any legitimate e-mail as spam from the of 249,511 e-mails tested. This achievement was matched by only two other products but with lower spam catch rates.

"We are very proud to see our hard work finally pay off. We have been looking for ways to measure ORF's performance against our competitors and Virus Bulletin provided the best solution. The results are impressive and they highlight ORF's ability to effectively identify all types of spam using a combination of several carefully selected email security algorithms. Combined with the fact that our prices are unmatched, we can safely say we provide the best price per value ratio in the whole industry" said Peter Karsai, Product Development Director for ORF.

"Perhaps because the company itself was the first to use the product, a lot of attention has been paid to the ability for administrators to customize the product and to generate logs; we were impressed by how easily and intuitively both are done. A spam catch rate of well over 99% is certainly impressive, but the fact that this is combined with zero false positives is even more so. A VBSpam award is absolutely deserved for this impressive debut." stated Martijn Grooten, Anti-spam Test Director at Virus Bulletin.

About VBSpam

After more than a decade of experience in the field of anti-malware testing, Virus Bulletin began running an anti-spam testing and certification scheme at the beginning of 2009. The VBSpam test has since become a recognized industry standard.

The test uses Virus Bulletin's live email stream, which is sent to all the filters participating in the test in random order, thus exposing each to exactly the same email stream, in real time. The test measures both the false positive rate and the spam catch rate of the products, and VBSpam certifications are awarded to products that exceed a predefined benchmark based on both measurements.
