I am excited to write about the latest anti-spam comparative test results from VirusBulletin. Forefront Protection for Exchange emerged as the winner in the May 2010 test results, with an extremely high spam catch (SC) rate and a very low false positive (FP) rate.


SC rate: 99.93%

SC rate (VB corpus): 97.35%

SC rate (image spam): 99.77%

SC rate (large spam): 99.90%

FP rate: 0.23%

FP rate (VB corpus): 0.79%

Final score: 99.25

[SC=Spam Catch rate; FP=False Positive rate]


Quote from the report:

Microsoft’s Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server was the clear winner of the last test, achieving the highest final score by some distance. The final scores of the various products were closer this month, but with the second highest spam catch rate and just a handful of false positives,Forefront was yet again the product with the highest final score and adds another VBSpam award to its collection.
