December 18, 2007; 10:07 AM

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Commtouch® (NASDAQ:CTCH) today announced that eNom has selected Commtouch Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection to protect eNoms email customers.

eNom, a wholly owned subsidiary of Demand Media, Inc., is the largest ICANN-accredited wholesale domain registrar with over 9 million domain names on its platform, and over 3 million customers of email services. Integrating Commtouch Zero Hour Virus Outbreak Protection into eNoms email services adds real-time protection against email-borne malware threats.

Protecting email is a top priority at eNom, so we set out to bring our users the very best solution, said Steve Brown, vice president of customer relationship management. We tested leading anti-malware solutions, and Commtouchs Zero Hour Virus Outbreak Protection with RPD technology was the clear winner in terms of both overall detection rates and protection against new viruses in email.

eNom is a world leader in domain registration and we are proud to help defend its customers inboxes, said Avner Avram, Commtouch executive vice president. Email is now the number one vector for malware infection, so eNom has shown its dedication to protecting users by giving them this additional layer of Zero-Hour virus outbreak detection.

Commtouch Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection blocks malware in the early moments of the outbreak, and is licensed by messaging and security vendors worldwide. It uses patented Recurrent Pattern Detection technology, rather than relying on the time-consuming process of developing signatures or heuristics.
