Greenview Data Launches SpamStopsHere
Greenview is offering cost-conscious businesses a 30-day trial of its hosted e-mail spam solution, SpamStopsHere.Midmarket-focused technology company Greenview Data announced the availability of SpamStopsHere, a hosted e-mail filtering platform the company said blocks 99 percent of spam and ensures delivery of legitimate e-mails. The hosted platform requires no installation or tuning, no IT support to operate or maintain and costs as little as $6 per mailbox per year, Greenview claims.
SpamStopsHere also provides out-of-the-box deployment, e-mail service continuity by "spooling" (storing and forwarding) messages if the mail server is offline for immediate delivery once it is restored and e-mail reliability with multiple, redundant, geographically disparate servers to protect the integrity of e-mail communications. SpamStopsHere's optional anti-virus protection scans e-mail attachments for viruses and removes infected files. Scan summaries added to the bottom of e-mails alert users when attachments have been removed.
Spam can be a crippling problem for small to medium-size businesses (SMBs), as numerous studies have shown. The ICF report, conducted in conjunction with security software firm McAfee, also found an estimated worldwide total of 62 trillion spam e-mails were sent in 2008. It takes an average of three seconds for a user to view and delete a spam message. Although spam filters block approximately 80 percent of spam before it reaches the user, the massive quantities of e-mail spam and the increasing ingenuity of spammers leave a large number of spam messages in end-user inboxes. Approximately 104 billion user hours per year go to reading and manually deleting spam, the study found.
