BlueTie Selects Cloudmark to Protect its Users

By Deepika Mala, TMCnet Contributor

Cloudmark, Inc., a provider of carrier-grade messaging security, has announced that it was selected by BlueTie (News - Alert), Inc., a provider of hosted email and collaboration services, to protect its 1.6 million users from spam, phishing and viruses.

Using Cloudmark Gateway (News - Alert), a high-performance edge mail transfer agent, in conjunction with Cloudmark Authority, hosted email customers now have the industry’s fastest, most flexible, and most accurate messaging anti-abuse solution.
BlueTie in its continued efforts to provide customers with the optimum business email experience, has identified that its current solution for messaging security was capital and resource-intensive, requiring 140 servers to process inbound mail and creating latency in delivering messages to customers.
A more accurate solution for detecting and eliminating threats to minimize the risk of spam, phishing and viruses reaching user inboxes was sought by BlueTie when it selected Cloudmark (News - Alert).
“Our customers rely on us to provide the critical email and collaboration capabilities that drive their businesses, and message processing delays or high volumes of spam are not an option,” Jeffrey Lambert, chief technology officer at BlueTie, said.
“Cloudmark distinguished itself by offering messaging security protection that was fast, accurate, efficient and scalable for our millions of customers. Cloudmark’s solutions have enabled BlueTie to increase customer satisfaction by reducing spam and delivering messages faster, while also lowering our hardware and operational costs.”
BlueTie has experienced a significant reduction in on-call paging for customer support, as a result of its Cloudmark deployment. This has further enabled the hosting provider to free up administrative resources and decrease operational expenses.
“Leading hosted business email providers like BlueTie recognize secure, efficient messaging as a key differentiator in the marketplace and a necessity for the customers who rely on them as an integral component of their operations,” Jamie de Guerre (News - Alert), chief technology officer at Cloudmark, said.
“With Cloudmark Gateway, together with Cloudmark Authority, hosted messaging providers benefit from fast, accurate messaging security that significantly reduces infrastructure needs and improves the quality of service offered to customers.”
