Bucharest, Romania (PressExposure) September 30, 2008 -- AXIGEN (http://www.axigen.com), a leading messaging solution provided by Gecad Technologies, and CommtouchÂ® (NASDAQ: CTCH, http://www.commtouch.com), a provider of email and web security technology, today announced the signing of a licensing agreement aimed at launching an integrated product combining AXIGEN Mail Serverâs carrier class messaging with Commtouchâs advanced email defense features.
The new bundled AXIGEN-Commtouch product will integrate the Commtouch Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPDâ¢) technology into the AXIGEN Mail Server. Recognized as achieving superior detection/accuracy performance, RPD is focused on the most fundamental characteristic of spam and email-borne malware and phishing, namely their mass distribution over the Internet.

As a result, emerging outbreaks are identified moments after they are introduced into the Internet.
