CIMCO SecureBizSM Email Security Services, Spam & Content Filtering, and Virus Protection Give IT Executives Cost-Saving Means to Battle Latest Threats

Oakbrook Terrace, IL, August 9, 2004 - In an effort to address the growing network security concerns of corporations, CIMCO Communications, Inc., announced today a new suite of services to fight viruses, spam and unwanted content. CIMCO SecureBizSM Email Security Services, managed by dedicated CIMCO security experts, free up internal IT resources for more strategic projects.

According to Ferris Research, spam cost American corporations about $168 per employee in 2003. Spam and viruses together cost businesses $23 billion in lost productivity, interruption of services and wasted or damaged resources.

"The network security issues that corporations are facing can greatly damage their businesses if they are not prepared to face them," said Bill Capraro, President and CEO of CIMCO. "Corporations are looking for answers. CIMCO's new suite of security products prevents security and financial risks to businesses, stops the potential spread of viruses to networks, and frees up bandwidth by stopping spam in its tracks."

CIMCO SecureBiz Email Security Services provide IT executives and network administrators the solutions to tackle the intricacies of viruses, spam and unwanted content. SecureBiz Spam and Content Filtering enable companies to stop span before it breaches corporate networks. SecureBiz Virus Protection enables companies to pre-scan all of their incoming e-mail traffic before it enters the LAN environment.

More than 7,000 new viruses, worms and Trojan horses were identified in 2003, costing businesses $13 billion, according to the Computer Research Board.

"The problems of spam and viruses can no longer be ignored," Capraro said. "As the attacks have become more sophisticated, companies need to be prepared for those challenges so they can reduce costs, minimize disruptions, and increase employee productivity. CIMCO is a valued partner in solving these problems."
