Libra Esva Demonstrated a Spam Catch Rate of 99.97%

Libra Esva Demonstrated a Spam Catch Rate of 99.97%

The May 2016 test for spam blocking saw Libra Esva register a catch rate of 99.97%, with zero false positives! The consistent results and superior spam-blocking also saw the company receive another VBSpam+ award for exceptional performance. This earned the company a position in the Top 4 anti-spam products under test. The spam-catching percentages achieved over the past months have also been always at the top, with the highest rating being 99.99% (March 2016.)

CEO of Libraesva, Paolo Frizzi, was proud of the high ranking and spoke of the importance of having an independent third party conduct performance tests. He pointed out that the Virus Bulletin test results can be trusted as they have no bias. Organizations looking to deploy an anti-spam solution can therefore rely on the results and choose accordingly. Companies already using anti-spam software can also view the results to assess how well their chosen product fares against the competition.

An anti-spam solution must be effective, as any spam emails that get past the filter could potentially result in a phishing email being delivered to an employee. The high catch rate shows the quality of the product that uses not one but up to three different anti-virus engines to ensure dangerous emails prevented from being downloaded and delivered to end users.
