Software602 Licenses Commtouch Real-Time Anti Spam for Groupware Server


Software602, Inc. and Commtouch® (NASDAQ: CTCH) today announced the signing of an OEM licensing agreement to integrate Commtouch’s Anti-Spam service into Software602’s Groupware Server.

“Everyone has a problem with unwanted unsolicited email,” said Premysl Pech, chief executive officer of Software602, Inc. “Until now, Software602 Groupware Server has provided a multi-layered approach to message security, using blacklists and Bayesian filtering, which require active human intervention. Adding real-time messaging security based on Commtouch Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD)™ technology allows us to offer a maintenance-free solution to spam that works out-of-the-box from day one.”

Software602 Groupware Server 6 is an email collaboration suite designed for small businesses and is expected to be released next month. It includes integrated corporate instant messaging, XML RSS feeds, shared documents, calendar, contacts and a centralized email and instant message archive. An additional Internet Security Subscription will be available to provide spam-free email using Commtouch RPD technology.

“We are pleased to be working with Software602, a leader in the small business market,” said Avner Amram, executive vice president of Commtouch. “Small businesses are often hard-hit by spam, phishing and malware, and may not be able to afford the heavy time-investment associated with many traditional content-filters. They need a messaging security solution that basically manages itself, like Commtouch RPD technology.”
