These new services complement ongoing industry efforts supported by Microsoft, including e-mail authentication
mechanisms such as the Sender ID Framework, to help protect MSN Hotmail customers as well as the overall e-mail community from online safety concerns such as spam, phishing and viruses.
One of the most promising areas for e-mail authentication
is to reduce false positives.
Sender ID, the leading e-mail authentication
protocol, aims to help stop the spread of spam, phishing scams, malware and other online exploits in e-mail by helping address domain spoofing, a tactic used in over 95 percent of all exploits where the name in the "To:" line of the e-mail is forged.
During the summit on April 19, companies and marketers will learn more about the business value of e-mail authentication
technologies, such as Sender ID, a leading authentication protocol created through industry collaboration and supported by Microsoft.
CipherTrust research and development has always been rapid to identify and remedy security threats to our customers, and we are applying that intelligence in RSA discussions on two very popular topics: e-mail authentication

May 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Business leaders, IT professionals and e-commerce executives will gather at the Marriott Marquis in New York City on July 12 to learn how e-mail authentication
techniques, collaboratively developed and implemented by the online industry, are helping protect businesses and consumers from spam, phishing attacks and e-mail fraud.
In March 2004, CipherTrust was the first e-mail security vendor to incorporate e-mail authentication
standards into their e-mail security appliance and since then have been able to track the effectiveness and implementation of those standards.
We believe Sender ID is an important e-mail authentication
technology to address the growing spam problem, and our members are already seeing the benefits in their own implementation," said Trevor Hughes, executive director of the Email Service Provider Coalition.
By teaming with The DMA in developing this white paper, we hope to help educate thousands of marketers on e-mail authentication
and the benefits they will derive from supporting its ongoing development and implementation.
