VeriSign Email Security Service was introduced into the European market in February 2005.

In addition to multi-lingual support, new capabilities to the VeriSign Email Security Service announced today include:

Search Support in the Spam Quarantine Interface - End users can now search messages in their quarantine account by sender’s full or partial email address and full and partial text in the subject line.
Improved Policy Filter Options - Administrators can now redirect (and block) or BCC (and deliver) inbound and/or outbound email messages that meet the filter criteria. This feature allows administrators to perform trace or audit functions on email messages that violate corporate email content policies.
New Report Options - The Spam Report feature now includes spam messages blocked by the service, submissions to the “Abuse and the False Positive” aliases by the customers, and a count of the messages recovered from the Spam Quarantine. This gives administrators a more accurate picture of the spam filter’s effectiveness.

“With support for international languages, enterprises can now leverage VeriSign Email Security Services to preserve the productivity gains of email communications while gaining better control of the service through native language control,” said Chad Kinzelberg, Vice President, VeriSign Security Services. “Working with our technology partner Frontbridge Technologies, Inc., we can provide enterprises with further enhancements, including searchable spam quarantine and easier policy implementation, addressing customer demands for more intuitive, easy-to-deploy anti-spam and content filtering options.”

Email has become a critical component of day-to-day business communications. However, spam, email-borne viruses and worms threaten to reduce the benefits of conducting business via the Internet.
