ORF strengthens its position amongst large vendor solutions in VBSpam testing

BUDAPEST, Hungary (July 6, 2010) - Vamsoft ORF, leading software based anti-spam solution for Microsoft® Exchange and IIS SMTP was awarded the VBSpam Verified award second time in a row.

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 23 products evaluated during the 2 week period, ORF was one of the only 2 complete solutions that achieved a 0.00% False Positive rate. Combined with the outstanding catch rate of 98.78%, ORF still stands as one of the best spam filtering solutions on the market.

"The problem of false positives in spam filtering is regularly played down... False positives frequently go by unnoticed — they may disappear among the vast amount of real spam that is blocked by a filter, so that neither the customer nor the vendor realize the extent of the problem." said Martijn Grooten, Anti-spam Test Director at Virus Bulletin.

"False positives are an extremely important aspect of spam filtering that is regularly forgotten about. Having 1 or 2 spam emails per day is an annoying distraction from the daily workflow. However, losing an important email because the filter wrongfully categorized it as spam can cause direct material or non-material damages to both the sender and the recipient. This is why we are proud to see that ORF is one of the best products in this respect." - explained Peter Karsai, Product Development Director of ORF.

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.
