Press Release: Dixie-Net Chooses Roaring Penguin Software's CanIt-PRO for Per-User Anti-Spam Filtering
Internet Service Provider offers new service packages based on CanIt-PRO's flexible anti-spam and anti-virus filtering.

9 March 2004 – Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – Dixie-Net, a Mississippi-based Internet Service Provider (ISP) and competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC), has chosen Roaring Penguin Software's flexible CanIt-PRO anti-spam solution to provide its end users with new, custom e-mail filtering options. Dixie- Net's 10,000 Internet users, as well as its domain managers, can now benefit from basic or advanced spam and virus filtering.

Chris Marsalis, Dixie-Net's vice president of operations, said, "Our users have been clamoring for a solution to the spam problem for months. We evaluated all the options, including open-source products, paid services and other software solutions. CanIt-PRO was the best solution we have found that allows us to offer our customers the features and services that they need. CanIt-PRO is also flexible enough that we can offer a range of filtering options and packages."

Dixie-Net's Internet subscribers will now all benefit from some spam filtering by default and will have the option to opt-out of mail filtering. Users can also upgrade to a premium filtering package, enabling them to set their own filtering levels, access their Spam Traps to review trapped mail, and use CanIt-PRO's easy-to-use interface to build their own whitelists and blacklists. In addition, Dixie-Net will offer per-domain filtering for its corporate hosting customers.

"Within the first week of having integrated CanIt-PRO, it was highly effective," Marsalis added. "And, the response has been outstandingly positive from our users. CanIt-PRO enables us to provide effective spam and virus filtering to our customers without making all decisions for them." Dixie-Net purchased CanIt-PRO version 2.0, which includes per-user Bayesian filtering. This enables the system to learn each user's mail preferences over time, constantly improving filtering results and staying on top of spammer's new tactics.

Based on the acclaimed MIMEDefang e-mail inspection and manipulation software, also developed and maintained by Roaring Penguin, CanIt offers the industry's most complete and flexible anti-spam and anti-virus solution. It can be deployed in any enterprise e-mail environment, including on all Linux and UNIX servers. As a stand-alone gateway appliance, it can protect e-mail environments running non- UNIX servers, such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes and Novell Groupwise.

CanIt-PRO is ideal for ISPs, campuses and large organizations where global filtering policies must be balanced with individuals’ ability to have the final decision over what is and is not spam. CanIt™ products offer the industry's most complete and flexible anti-spam and anti-virus solutions. They can be deployed in any enterprise e-mail environment, including on all Linux and UNIX servers. As a standalone gateway appliance, CanIt can protect e-mail environments running non-UNIX servers, such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes and Novell Groupwise.
