The July 2010 issue of the VirusBulletin issued today has another comparative report on anti-spam solutions.

In the latest comparative report, Microsoft Forefront Protection for Exchange still leads the competition with the highest spam catch detection rate and the lowest (zero) false positives rate. This is the third consecutive time that Microsoft Forefront Protection for Exchange got the highest final score in the VBspam comparative report.

In this report (and also in the previous reports), Microsoft Forefront Protection for Exchange has shown remarkably better capabilities compared to Symantec, McAfee, Kaspersky, and other competitive solutions.

Quote from the VBspam report:

With the second best spam catch rate overall and just a handful of false positives on the last occasion, Microsoft’s Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server seemed unlikely to improve on its past performance in this test. However, the product still managed to do that and a stunning spam catch rate of 99.96% combined with a total lack of false positives not only wins the product its sixth consecutive VBSpam award, but also gives it the highest final score for the third time in a row.
