News Release - Engate Enhances Network Profiling, Connection-level Anti-Spam Solution with Comprehensive Phish Protection


PhishFilet® Delivers Unrivaled 99% Accuracy with the Industries First Network-layer, Preemptive Solution to Combat Sophisticated Phish Attacks


Reno, NV – September 27, 2007 — Engate Technology Corporation, a leading anti-spam supplier and pioneer of next generation network profiling and connection management security solutions, today unveiled the latest release of Engate MailSentinel 3.5. The new release introduces, PhishFilet®, the industry’s first network-layer, preemptive solution against phish attacks. Powered by Engate’s unique Network Profiling technology, PhishFilet® eliminates sophisticated phish attacks at the connection-level, prior to transmission to an Engate protected network with 99% accuracy or higher and virtually no false positives.


PhishFilet® operates at the network connection layer where the phish target domain’s true identity cannot be hidden or forged. Using eight patent-pending technologies, Engate achieves the highest accuracy in the market by profiling entire networks to detect protocol fraud and determine the legitimacy of a sender’s message before transmission to the private network by uniquely segregating legitimate mailers from all other network hosts. This proprietary technology empowers organizations to preemptively identify incoming mail from phish target domains and intelligently reject these illicit connections outside the network prior to mail transmission.


“Engate MailSentinel continually achieves the industry’s highest performance, compared to reactive reputation and content filter technologies that compromise detection accuracy, false positives and response time,” said Rich White, Chief Technology Officer, Engate. “Our solution delivers a customer proven block rate of 99% of inbound connections. Engate’s preemptive network profiling approach gives our customers the fastest response to compromised hosts and new botnets the instant they emerge, ensuring immediate protection against any creative tactic that may arise now or in the future.”
