VBSpam: Over the Top!

If 2011 began with two awards, the 2012 was even more numero1generous leading Libra Esva to first place overall ranking in the highly respected Virus Bulletin Spam test!

After four second places Libra Esva finally achieved the highest final score in a particular edition of the test for both number of competitors (as many as 22!) and type of spam; this is traditionally a very active time for spammers who launch new spam campaigns over the Christmas and New Year holidays!

The first place has been achieved not only for the exceptional ability to block spam (99,96%), but more importantly the lack of false positives!

Numbers are very impressive: Libra Esva missed only 62 messages out of 152,236 scanned emails with 0 false positives!

VBspam quadrant says it all:

vbspam-chart0112

Martin Grooten, author of the Virus Bulletin Anti-spam comparative review stated that:

This month Libra Esva finally managed what it had been so close to so many times before: achieving the highest final score in the test. An excellent spam catch rate was combined with a total lack of false positives (even among newsletters), which means that, along with its 11th VBSpam award, the Italian company should have extra cause for celebration.

This result makes us very proud and shows how hard work and outstanding efforts in improving the product are always rewarded. We have a great technology, easy to use and for the first time the product outperformed all other participants to the test!

Ing.Paolo Frizzi seems to have no doubts about Libra Esva quality and its real performances that leaded Libra Esva over the top!

Libra Esva Sets Records in the VBSpam Challenge

Results from latest Virus Bulletin’s VBSpam Challenge demonstrate that vbspam-0911Libra Esva is the only spam filter solution that has a solid performance in multiple tests over time, with an incredible record having come in second place for the fourth time in the last year!

With a 99.93 final score, Libra Esva outperformed hardware appliances, server applications and competing Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. Martijn Grooten, Technical Director at Virus Bullettin, stated that

Libra Esva’s record (having come in second place for the fourth time) is evidence of just how good a product it is. With no false positives and the fourth highest spam catch rate this month, the Italian product wins its ninth consecutive VBSpam award.

Again as a consequence of this performance Libra Esva earns the much coveted Virus Bulletin award and again receives strong independent endorsement for its highly effective and easy to use spam filtering solution.
