About RAE Internet
RAE Internet Inc. has been selling and supporting anti-virus and anti-spam software since 2000. The company has 11 years of expertise with email security and defense at the desk top, mail server and email gateway. RAE Internet distributes F-PROT Anti-Virus and Cloudmark Authority for Anti-Spam/Virus.
RAE Internet has developed an email security platform called Mailspect Defense. The heart of Mailspect Defense is a control panel that enables an email admin to control the end-to-end email security of an enterprise or ISP. Mailspect Archive is a secure email archive product for Linux servers.
In 2011, RAE Internet released its email integration cloud service for Salesforce.com, Match My Email. Match My Email is the leading serevice for Salesforce.com users seeking fully automated, platform independent email syncing and logging. Match My Email is growing extremely fast; its 2012 growth rate was 800% year over year.
RAE Internet is the official US reseller of F-PROT Antivirus developed by Commtouch Inc. F-PROT is developed in Commtouch’s research lab in Iceland. It is remarkable technology that represents more than 25 years of continuous development by the same team. It has identified and neutralized over 2 million viruses, worms, Trojans and other malware. It is designed for efficiency, ease-of-use and kept up-to-date by micro-leases directly from the Internet. F-PROT’s products are made for both personal computers and enterprise/ISP servers. F-PROT Antivirus works on Windows, Linux, and Unix.
RAE Internet selected Cloudmark Authority as its anti-spam partner after trying most of the other anti-spam engines available. In our opinion, Cloudmark is, by far, the best anti-spam software on the market. Mail servers protected by Cloudmark barely need any support because the software never seems to produce a ‘false positive’. RAE Internet resells Cloudmark’s Server Edition for Microsoft Exchange as a stand-alone product.
For end-to-end email server or gateway protection, RAE Internet distributes Mailspect Defense. Mailspect Defense is targeted at the systems administrator who needs to manage the end-to-end email security environment. The core of Mailspect’s platform is its Control Panel. Out of the box, Mailspect Defense controls real-time black lists, SURBL, spam traps, antivirus / antispam engines, user-generated black and white lists, content filters, offensive word lists, data loss protection and a state-of-the-art quarantine message viewer. Mailspect Defense Standard is bundled with Cloudmark Authority anti-spam and anti-virus modules. Mailspect Archive is a fully compliant email archiving server that runs on Linux.
RAE Internet launched Match My Email in 2011 at Cloudforce New York. Match My Email is a cloud technology that was designed from the floor up to provide fully automated email integration for Salesforce.com. It is based on years of experience processing emails and sorting / routing them to the right record in a relational database such as Salesforce.com.
