Upgrade makes TotalBlock easier to load and use

  • 21 March, 2006 10:34

<p>New Millennium Solutions (NMS) has announced a major upgrade of its TotalBlock anti-spam solution that also guards against network overloads caused by storming, harvesting and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
<br/>
<br/>TotalBlock 2.5 adds a slicker, easier-to-use GUI interface and loads new customer sites automatically. It will be on display at the CeBIT Australia trade show at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre on May 9-11.
<br/>
<br/>Unlike anti-spam filtering technology, where business-critical emails occasionally fail to arrive, TotalBlock uses a challenge-response process that ensures all legitimate email arrives, while unwanted emails are blocked.
<br/>
<br/>Australian-developed TotalBlock quickly and easily builds up a list of acceptable incoming email senders by replying automatically to all those that are not on the user’s allowed list. The reply message contains a simple action that, when followed, automatically adds the sender to the allowed list. The action can be as simple as replying to the challenge. Since the authorisation process requires human intervention, the challenge process bypasses drone machines that spew out huge volumes of spam. All address book entries are authorised automatically, as are senders who reply to mail sent by the user.
<br/>
<br/>“TotalBlock raises corporate productivity by eliminating spam and ensuring that all wanted emails get through,” says NMS Chairman, Peter Stewart. “It is also highly effective at guarding against network overloads – it’s more like a bouncer than a traffic cop.”
