MessageLabs, Symantec team on antispam service

Thursday, 2 September 2004, 12:11 AM EST

The company said the Brightmail technology will help it create a more multilayered defense against spam.

Mark Sunner, chief technology officer of MessageLabs, told Silicon.com that making use of third-party, best-of-breed technology has always been at the heart of MessageLabs' plans. This latest development is something the company has been thinking about "for years," he said.

"From the point of view of offering managed services, we are vendor-agnostic, and where we believe it will add to that service, we will always look to bring in third-party solutions," Sunner said. "Symantec's Brightmail technology will contrast with our own database and enable a far more comprehensive approach to filtering out spam."
