ORF achieves 0% false positive rate on VBSpam test

BUDAPEST, Hungary (January 13, 2011) - Vamsoft ORF, leading software based anti-spam solution for Microsoft® Exchange and IIS SMTP achieved VBSpam Verified award for the fifth test period in a row.

The independent test conducted by Virus Bulletin's Anti-spam team included 20 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.

ORF managed a perfect score on this round of VBSpam's testing, achieving a 0.00%; false positive rate overall. During the 15 days of testing the product received 89,027 spam e-mails, none of which were falsely classified.

"We believe that this result proved again that independent developers can create software that is on par with large vendor solutions or even surpass them in some respects. In this regard, we cannot stress enough the importance of a low false positive rate as it can have a direct effect on daily operations of a business." said Peter Karsai, Product Development Director of ORF.

"ORF's false positive rates have always been among the lowest of the products we've tested so we were not surprised to see it among those that scored zero false positives in this month's test." commented Martijn Grooten, Anti-spam Test Director at Virus Bulletin.

Along with the outstanding false positive rate, ORF also managed a 99.39% spam catch rate which is one of the highest for ORF since the start of the test.

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.
