Reflexion Total Control 4.0 is Released

Reflexion has announced the general availability of Reflexion Total Control 4.0 (RTC 4), an email security solution that utilizes supplemental address technology to protect inboxes from spam in any language, phishing attacks and other malicious content. RTC 4's unique address-based technology adds a new layer of defense to traditional spam-blocking techniques, including whitelisting and content filtering, to provide more accurate, proactive protection that is maintenance free. In addition, RTC 4 enables users to see who is sharing their email addresses and provides the option of blocking future correspondence. As a result, users enjoy a pristine inbox reminiscent of the pre-spam era.

By using supplemental addresses to fractionate inbox access, RTC 4 provides a concrete means of protecting one's primary address from new sources of spam, and empowers users to defeat spam attracted to any new address. Users may choose to employ supplemental addresses selectively by using unique Addresses-on-the-Fly for high-risk disclosures such as online transactions, or routinely for all new correspondents. In both cases, a proprietary supplemental address management system (SAMS) automatically manages the creation and administration of new addresses in a manner that is completely transparent to the user and maintenance free for the email administrator. Users may also choose not to use supplemental addresses, and rely solely on RTC 4's premier filtering and whitelisting capabilities.

Rapidly evolving email security threats are forcing organizations to increase protection beyond conventional anti-spam products. Responding to these threats, RTC 4 adds a new layer of defense that strengthens traditional spam-blocking techniques. In addition, supplemental addresses elevate mail to a state that doesn't require further screening (except for viruses), eliminating the shortcomings endemic to traditional defenses. For example, by removing the need for filtering incoming mail on supplemental addresses, RTC 4 avoids the false-positive problem, even for bulk and transactional mail.

Additional Product Highlights:
- Immediate relief of spam in any language without blocking legitimate messages.
- Enhanced tools for simplified deployment, including a delegated spam folder and automated whitelisting of address book contacts and outgoing email history.
- Supplemental addresses make fraudulent messages self-evident, defeating phishing attacks and identity theft.
- "Set and forget" configuration enables email administrators to apply a range of preventative techniques to different user populations, based on the severity of the spam problem.
- Relief from volume-based attacks, such as directory harvesting and denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, recapturing the bandwidth lost to processing malware.
- User controls that reveal address sharing and avoid the risks of further address propagation.
- Zero maintenance for email administrators.
- Spam content filtering powered by Mailshell.
- Ability to correlate a supplemental address with a topic or event, e.g. to track the effectiveness of marketing campaigns or the status of "trouble tickets".
