ORF reaches VBSpam Milestone - 4 times 0 false positives

BUDAPEST, Hungary (March 3, 2011) - Vamsoft ORF, leading software based anti-spam solution for Microsoft® Exchange and IIS SMTP achieved VBSpam Verified award for the 6th 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 reached a world first milestone in its 6th test in the VBSpam certification. Of the 6 tests conducted throughout the last year, ORF managed a perfect false positive score 4 times. No other complete solution has been able to achieve this since the launch of the tests.

"For the fourth time in six tests, ORF did not miss a single legitimate email – a unique achievement among full solutions in this test." said Martijn Grooten, Anti-spam Test Director at Virus Bulletin.

With a catch rate of 99.10% ORF still remains one of the top spam filtering solutions in the world.

"Even if the spam catch rate isn’t quite as high as that of some other products, the customers of the Hungarian-developed product will have little reason to look in their spam folders, and that may be just as important. A sixth VBSpam award is thus well deserved." commented Mr. Grooten.

Mr. Grooten's comments underline the idea the ORF Team has been stressing for a while. Having a few spam e-mails in your inbox is annoying at best but losing important e-mails to a spam filtering program is unacceptable.

"Our efforts to ship a balanced set of technology choices are continously paying off - as the series of our VBSpam awards show, ORF enables IT departments to maintain a high spam catch rate with practically zero false positives. This same careful technology selection also make ORF a fire-and-forget solution: since the tests started, we barely touched the ORF configuration, yet it adopted well to the VBSpam test methodology changes." said Peter Karsai, Product Development Director of ORF.

ORF will continue to participate in the VBSpam program in anticipation of how many milestones ORF can achieve.

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.
