TurnTide Unveils World's First Anti-Spam Router

TurnTide Selected to Launch System at Renowned DEMO 2004

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 2004--TurnTide, Inc. today unveiled the world’s first anti-spam router, creating a new category of anti-spam solutions that eliminates volume at the source. TurnTide’s anti-spam router is fundamentally different from all other anti-spam solutions because it does not allow spam onto the network, significantly reducing costs for TurnTide customers.

"Now there is a new entrant in this space – TurnTide - that is delivering a router-level appliance that applies TCP and IP bandwidth shaping techniques to the elimination of spam at source,” said Nick Shelness an independent technology consultant that specializes in messaging and collaboration. “This is an exciting new development."

TurnTide officially unveiled this revolutionary technology today at the DEMO 2004 conference, technology’s most elite launch pad for the new products and services poised to have the greatest impact on the landscape in the year to come. TurnTide was chosen as one of just 67 companies to unveil new technology at the renowned conference that also been a launching pad for products such as Java, E-trade and the Palm Pilot.

“Our conference has an unrivaled reputation for carefully selecting and introducing breakthrough technologies for the industry to preview and understand,” said Chris Shipley, executive producer of DEMO 2004. “Preserving the integrity of enterprise e-mail is one of the toughest and most immediate challenges for businesses and TurnTide was chosen for DEMO 2004 because we believe its revolutionary technology will fundamentally change the anti-spam market and how organizations deal with the growing expense of eliminating spam.”

TurnTide is a network appliance that sits at the edge of a customer’s network, and operates as a router. Unlike the current spam filter technology, which operates at layer 7 in the network on a mail-server, where the SMTP protocol lives, TurnTide works at a more fundamental level, at layers 3 and 4, where the TCP/IP protocol suite lives. TurnTide identifies the network source of each email stream, the actual sending server or router, then dynamically identifies which of those paths are spammers, based on their actual behavioral history. TurnTide then limits the bandwidth and resources that spammers can use, which actually stops the spam from leaving the spammers' servers. Additionally, because TurnTide works on the fundamental level without completely blocking domains or deleting individual messages, legitimate email cannot be lost, providing zero false positives.

CEO Lucinda Duncalfe Holt, former CEO of Destiny WebSolutions, and David Brussin, CTO and inventor of the system, founded the company. TurnTide also announced today the successful closing of it’s first round of funding, led by Josh Kopelman, the founder and former CEO of Half.com, which was sold to eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY) in 2000. Mr. Kopelman will be Chairman of the company’s Board of Directors.

“TurnTide is the first product which effectively changes the economics of spam,” said Mr. Kopelman. “Spammers’ entire business model depends on sending mass volume in short periods of time and spammers continue to figure out ways to deal with filters by increasing that volume. By stopping the volume from leaving the spammers’ servers, our system causes friction that destroys that model.”

“No spam solutions that are currently on the market end the problem of spam because they don’t deal directly with ending the volume,” said Lucinda Duncalfe Holt, chief executive and president of TurnTide. “It was time to raise the bar and come up with a next generation way to deal with the problem. TurnTide offers the first in this new generation of spam prevention products that help enterprises wrestle control of their networks back from the spammers.”

About TurnTide™
TurnTide™ offers a unique, patent-pending, anti-spam system that revolutionizes the arsenal in the war against spam. The first anti-spam router, TurnTide makes it expensive for spammers to send messages into TurnTide-protected networks by limiting the bandwidth and resources that spammers can use – the system actually prevents spam from leaving the spammers’ servers. TurnTide never filters or blocks a single message, so it cannot delete or quarantine a legitimate message, making it the first true zero false positive solution to spam. TurnTide’s clients include large enterprises and service providers and the company is headquartered in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA.

TurnTide’s website is at www.TurnTide.com.
