    Feb 21, 2013 2:23 PM | about stocks: CYRN

    Commtouch announced that its URL filtering (URLF) software is integrated in Return Path email systems for enterprise and mailbox provider clients. This marks the beginning of Commtouch's partnership with Return Path, an email solutions provider.

    Commtouch is focused on providing cloud-based services as well as Internet security technology and protects billions of online transactions daily. The company has six global data centers and provides email, Web, and antivirus solutions to vendors and service providers.

    The URLF technology is designed to protect users by detecting and preventing piracy of email senders' platforms by means of analyzing the behavioral history of URLs and diagnosing URL types and destinations in order to identify unusual behavior in real-time. The system is designed to immediately detect and block potential compromises such as hacking and the hijacking of email senders' infrastructures for spam, phishing, and malware distribution. The system utilizes Commtouch's cloud-based index comprising of hundreds of millions of sites, separated into 64 categories, including highly granular categorizations of dynamic Web 2.0 environments.

    Matt Blumberg, CEO of Return Path, said, "The integration of Commtouch's URL filter benefits everyone that relies on Return Path, from enterprises whose customers and brands we protect from fraud, to service providers whose infrastructure we protect from unwanted and dangerous email. The threat to accounts and email platforms is greatly reduced and the danger of enterprises and service providers being turned into unsuspecting spam and malware senders is minimized. With Commtouch's URLF we can significantly improve the security of both email senders and mailbox providers. This greatly improves the inbox experience, and increases customer satisfaction for all involved."

    "The partnership with Return Path is a major step toward containing spam while at the same time ensuring unhindered delivery of legitimate email communication," said Shlomi Yanai, CEO at Commtouch. "We are very pleased that Return Path has chosen Commtouch's industry-leading URL filtering solution to enable secure email communication for service providers and email senders alike.
    Return Path's trust is an important confirmation of the benefits delivered by our solution's combination of broad Web coverage, maximum accuracy and cloud-assisted detection."
