Using advance pattern matching and artificial intelligence technologies from MicroNeil Research, Message Sniffer applies thousands of heuristic tests to each incoming message in just a fraction of a second. Unlike many anti-spam products that scan for content, Message Sniffer's tests search for combinations of spam features including message sources, common obfuscation techniques, Email and url targets and fragments, and even coding styles.
Message Sniffer is constantly learning. As new spam reaches our spamtraps, or is submitted by our users, a combination of automated learning systems and human intelligence is continuously at work improving the rule base, inventing new tests, and identifying new patterns... often we apply new filter rules before our users ever see a new piece of spam!
Message Sniffer collaborative anti-spam filters get stronger with each new user. Every participating system provides valuable tracking and performance information so that with each new system that uses Message Sniffer, the spammers have fewer places to hide and more resources working against them.
