HostWorks, Earthnet Deploy MX Logic to Control Customer Spam

DENVER – Sept. 15, 2003 – MX Logic, Inc., a provider of email protection and security services, including spam and virus filtering, today announced that Earthnet and HostWorks, two leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs), have selected MX Logic’s email protection service to resell to their customers to control spam.

Spam is a growing concern for ISPs and their customers.  According to analyst research, spam today makes up 45 percent of all email and costs companies between $120 and $168 per employee per year.  For ISPs, an increase in the amount of unwanted mail results in associated IT personnel drain, increased customer support calls, decreased network bandwidth, mail storage and customer satisfaction and costly network downtime. 

As leading ISPs, Earthnet, which provides dial-up, high-speed, Web hosting and advanced Data Center services to hundreds of enterprises, and HostWorks, which provides Internet custom Web applications, Web site managed hosting services and turnkey solutions to 375 clients in 27 states and three countries, are extremely sensitive to security issues.   Prior to signing on with MX Logic, both ISPs used either in-house or competitive email security products.  The in-house products proved to be ineffective and resource-intensive, as IT personnel spent a lot of time administering the product, while a large amount of spam continued to get through. 

“MX Logic’s Email Defense Service has done an outstanding job of blocking spam and unwanted mail for us. Many of our customers have informed us that their spam is completely eliminated with MX Logic’s service.   And, through a survey we conducted, our customers stated they are very pleased that MX Logic has been highly effective in not stopping legitimate email in their spam management process,” said Bahman Saless, CEO, Earthnet.  “With MX Logic’s services, we have been able to eliminate our email headaches, while increasing our customer satisfaction.”

HostWorks spent more than a year evaluating and beta testing email protection services. The company chose MX Logic’s service as the top solution due to its simplicity and ease of use, according to Paul Gilpatrick, president of HostWorks.

MX Logic’s Email Defense Service provides around-the-clock email protection and automatically intercepts, analyzes and blocks malicious and unsolicited messages at the network perimeter—before they can enter or leave the internal corporate network.  Its Stacked Classification Frameworksm , a patent-pending multi-layered spam detection system, leverages multiple unique methods and “voting” analysis to identify unwanted content.  The aggregation of these different techniques enables MX Logic to take advantage of each spam filter’s strengths and provides highly accurate spam detection, filtering up to 985 percent, while enabling MX Logic to maintain an industry-leading low false positive rate (legitimate email marked as spam).   Customers can deploy MX Logic’s Email Defense Service within minutes.                       

“Service providers offering Internet, hosting, email and managed services need a highly effective email protection service to keep customers satisfied and free from email threats,” said Scott Chasin, chief technology officer and co-founder, MX Logic.  “Earthnet and HostWorks’ experience with MX Logic is testament to our service effectiveness and reliability.  Service providers offering our Email Defense Service to their customers not only have additional revenue opportunities, but they can decrease customer support calls and increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.”
