SPAMfighter Expands: Users Feel the Difference

SPAMfighter and Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL) have signed a distribution agreement, opening SPAMfighter up to the Indian, Asian, and global markets. With a larger global SPAMfighter community, SPAMfighter users can expect better filtering worldwide.

"We are excited about this agreement with VSNL and are certain it will open many doors globally, giving SPAMfighter users better protection at the same time." commented Nils Plum Wirell, International Sales Manager. "VSNL is happy to partner with SPAMfighter and offer internet users in India with a world-class anti-spam solution. A community spam filter can save millions from the increasing menace of unsolicited junk mail" added Mukul Sood, Vice President, Content & Applications, VSNL.

VSNL is a leading global communications solutions company. For the second year in a row, VSNL has received the award for "Best Pan-Asian Wholesale Provider" from World Communication Awards. VSNL is headquartered in Mumbai, India, and has offices worldwide in countries such as the United States of America, South Africa, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Since 2005, PC Sales have been increasing rapidly in India. With the increase of computers and e-mail usage in India, spam has become more than a nuisance, and is now a security threat. Spam mail can contain viruses and phishing attacks, making the need for security software in India stronger than ever.

SPAMfighter is a community spam filter. This means, SPAMfighter users can fight back against spam by reporting it. Once a spam mail has been reported by enough users, it will be filtered out for all other users in the SPAMfighter community. This makes SPAMfighter effective against the latest forms of spam mail.

SPAMfighter is confident that with the new distribution agreement between SPAMfighter and VSNL will increase the number of SPAMfighter users in Asia and worldwide. China (including Hong Kong) and South Korea are in the top 3 spam originating countries. With more users in Asia, the latest forms of spam originating from these countries will be blocked for all users in the SPAMfighter community.
