SpamTitan was participating in this prestigious industry test for the very first time. The Virus Bulletin is an independent global publication specific to the field of viruses and related malware.

Virus Bulletin's Anti-spam Test Director Martijn Grooten said in relation to SpamTitan, ”I was particularly charmed by the simple, yet accurate explanations of the various anti-spam rules.  The fact that this approach worked well to block spam can be seen from the spam catch rate – which was among the highest in this test.  At the same time, the product had a very low false positive rate, missing out on a platinum award by just a single email; a VBSpam Gold award is more than deserved."

“There was an increase in the number of products tested this month, and the benchmarks used for this test were stricter than in previous tests,” said Ronan Kavanagh, CEO of SpamTitan Technologies. “To be the first virtual anti-spam solution tested in the Virus Bulletin anti-spam test and to come away with a gold award and a glowing recommendation is a testament to the quality of the SpamTitan anti-spam solution.”
