Partnership Empowers Network Child Care Services to Achieve 99% Reduction in Spam with Preemptive Email Security

 

Reno, NV – April 2, 2007 — Engate Technology Corporation, a leading supplier of next generation network profiling connection management security solutions, today announced that it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Bentor Technologies, one of Canada’s leaders of network infrastructure and security solutions. Under the agreement, Bentor will market and support Engate’s connection management anti-spam products for service providers, enterprises and small to medium sized businesses in Canada.

 

“Since Bentor has installed the Engate system, we have experienced a 99% reduction in spam email traffic at our desktop PCs,” said Spyros Volonakis, Executive Director, of Toronto based Network Child Care Services. “From day one, the installation has generated immediate results, helping us significantly improve the productivity and security of our operations. Given the sensitivity of our information as it relates to child care --child abuse reports, police checks, health records -- our staff is very pleased with the performance and results.”

 

“We’re proud to align with a technology leader like Engate as they’re currently helping our customers block over 99 percent of incoming spam at the connection level, saving our customers time, bandwidth and system resources,” said John Gray, Partner, Bentor Technologies. “As spam and botnet attacks evolve and become more menacing, we look forward to working with Engate as a partner to preemptively defend our customers against these sophisticated new generation of threats on the Internet."

 

"We’re pleased to align with Bentor who has a strong focus on security and networking technology, as well as a superior customer-oriented approach to IT solutions, service and support. Having third party validation from Bentor and its customers is a true testament to our innovative and cost saving security solutions," said Wil Cochran, President and CEO, Engate. “With Engate, Bentor can deliver the highest degree of service differentiation and superior connection level security to its customers.”

 

Reduce Risk, Improve Productivity and Lower Operational Costs

Engate’s flagship product, Engate MailSentinel™, provides preemptive, connection level protection against all malicious and unwanted email. Used as a standalone solution or to complement existing content filters and server-based products, Engate MailSentinel™ provides end users with industry leading anti-spam protection, while increasing the productivity and security of the business.

 

More than 90% of all email is spam, a significant proportion of which is transmitted by compromised PCs known as botnets that are cleverly designed to defeat content filtering defenses. When botnets succeed, the influx of spam reduces staff productivity, ties up network resources and compromises the security of the business as it frequently carries dangerous viruses, spyware and malware.

 

Using eight patent-pending technologies, the Engate solution delivers industry-leading protection by extending the security boundary outside the private network to stop malicious and unwanted traffic before transmission. Engate is impervious to threats because it uses proprietary techniques and source information that cannot be forged, circumvented or adapted by a spammers’ present and future ingenuity.  Engate uniquely segregates between legitimate mail servers, and all other network functions, thereby making accurate judgments about the legitimacy of inbound mail. This unique profiling functionality results in the highest level of performance in the market with >99% accuracy and virtually no false positives.
