News Release - Engate Announces Service Assurance as Select Reseller Partner for Network-Level Anti-Spam Security


Partnership Empowers Enterprises and Service Providers to Achieve 99% Accuracy with Preemptive, Network Layer Email Security


Reno, NV – October 3, 2007 — Engate Technology Corporation, a leading anti-spam supplier and pioneer of next generation network profiling and connection management security solutions, today announced that it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Service Assurance, the largest employee-owned service provider in the Mid-South US. Under the agreement, Service Assurance will market and support Engate’s connection management anti-spam products for service providers, enterprises and businesses.


In a related release, Engate announced its Anti-Spam Channel Partner Program. The strategic channel initiative expands Engate’s market opportunities for its award-winning email security solution, empowering resellers with the highest accuracy in the market. The program allows resellers to take advantage of Engate’s innovative, network layer anti-spam solution along with support, training and joint marketing programs.


“We’re proud to align with Engate and have the opportunity to offer their award-winning anti-spam solution to our enterprise and business customers, said Mark Giannini, CEO, Service Assurance. “We switched to Engate because our former anti-spam product’s catch rates decreased to unacceptable levels, as new threats like image spam, pdf spam and phish attacks progressed beyond their control. After trialing the Engate MailSentinel™, we were convinced that they had superior accuracy with the lowest false positives in the market. Our customers now benefit from Engate’s proactive protection and all the productivity and IT savings that are generated from network-layer spam interdiction.”


"We’re pleased to partner with Service Assurance who has a great reputation for delivering quality IT security solutions with first rate customer service and support," said Wil Cochran, President and CEO, Engate. “Being selected by a leading provider such as Service Assurance is a strong validation of our innovative and cost saving security solutions. Resellers are finding our network layer anti-spam value proposition very attractive which is evidenced by our growing base of channel partners who serve the enterprise and service provider market.”


Resellers Differentiate with the Highest Accuracy in the Market

Engate MailSentinel™ provides preemptive connection level protection against all malicious and unwanted email. Spammers cannot penetrate Engate's protocol layer technology because it uses proprietary techniques, logic tests and source information that cannot be forged, circumvented or adapted by a spammer‘s present and future tactics. Using eight patent-pending technologies, Engate achieves the highest accuracy in the market by profiling entire networks to detect protocol fraud and determines the legitimacy of a sender‘s message before transmission to the private network by uniquely segregating legitimate mail servers from all other network hosts. This unique profiling functionality results in the highest level of performance in the market with +99% accuracy and virtually no false positives. Essentially it is the last anti-spam product companies will need to buy.
