SpamTitan has achieved a Gold award on its first time to participate in the Virus Bulletin Anti-Spam Test. The Virus Bulletin is an independent global publication specific to the field of viruses and related malware. SpamTitan is the first anti-spam solution that runs on a virtual machine to take part in the Virus Bulletin test – demonstrating that SpamTitan is both an innovative and high quality product.

Virus Bulletin’s Anti-spam Test Director Martijn Grooten said in relation to SpamTitan  “I was particularly charmed by the simple, yet accurate explanations of the various anti-spam rules.  The fact that this approach worked well to block spam can be seen from the spam catch rate – which was among the highest in this test.  At the same time, the product had a very low false positive rate, missing out on a platinum award by just a single email; a VBSpam Gold award is more than deserved.”

There was an increase in the number of products tested this month, and the benchmarks used for this test were stricter than in previous tests. To be the first virtual anti-spam solution tested in the Virus Bulletin anti-spam test and to come away with a gold award and a glowing recommendation is a testament to the quality of the SpamTitan anti-spam solution.
