Kaspersky starts beta tests on Anti-Spam 3.0

Kaspersky AS

One of the great things about Kaspersky Lab, one of the veterans in the anti-virus and IT security marketplace, is its free-to-join beta tests.

The Russian IT security vendor has just started open beta testing of its Kaspersky Anti-Spam 3.0, a new generation of its spam filtering system software.

Aimed firmly at the business marketplace, Anti-Spam 3.0 is billed as protecting company networks from unsolicited mass mailings.

The most significant improvements, says the company, have been made to the Spamtest filtering engine. The new engine features improved performance and stability, combined with low memory requirements and smaller updates to the content filtration databases, resulting in less Web traffic.

The software also supports Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and Spam URL Realtime Blocklists (SURBL), which are used to customise the spam filtration policy and are based on spam sender address lists that are updated in real-time.

Plans call for the beta tests of the software to run until June of this year. You can find details of the beta tests here...
