This phenomenal capture rate, combined with zero false-positives, once again earned OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender the highest score ever awarded since the Virus Bulletin Spam Challenge began testing two years ago.

By comparison, the next best capture rate was Libra Esva which missed 99 spam messages, representing a false-negative rate of over 44 times worse than OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender and this competitor also created 4 false positives.

The second best overall score in the challenge was earned by BitDefender which, like OnlyMyEmail, had zero false positives, but missed 339 spam messages as compared to only 2 for OnlyMyEmail.

The average “false-negative” rate among the other 18 filtering systems was a whopping 1,189 missed spam messages and the median was 587.

The results from Virus Bulletin’s VBSpam Challenge once again independently demonstrate that OnlyMyEmail’s MX-Defender is decisively superior to any other spam defense available today, including hardware appliances, software programs and other Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions solutions as well.

In all, OnlyMyEmail accurately stopped far more spam than all of these other competing solutions: , BitDefender, FortiMail, GFI Mail Essentials, Halon Mail Security, Kaspersky Anti-Spam, Libra Esva, McAfee Email Gateway, McAfee SaaS, Sophos, SPAMfighter, SpamTitan, Spider Antispam, Symantec Messaging Gateway, The Email Laundry, Vade Retro, Vamsoft ORF, Spamhaus and SURBL.
