pending breakthrough in Spam protection technology. AddressShield combines
desktop software with email forwarding and filtering service, capable of
stopping 100% of Spam emails.
technological solutions like the ones used by Microsoft’s
MSN and by AOL, are
not satisfactory because they do not try to prevent Spam; instead they try to
stop Spam” says Ami Grynberg, Protecteer’s CEO. “Spam becomes an issue when your
email address becomes public knowledge” adds Ami. “Once out, your email address
is fair game and trying to stop its abuse by filtering out messages is like
trying to stop the torrents of Niagara
with a bucket”.
guarding one’s email address as confidential information is not a practical
solution. Protecteer, therefore, looked at another approach whereby users would
not give out their one and only real email address to everyone. Instead, a user
is provided with a large number of virtual inboxes each having a different
address. An email received by any one of these virtual inboxes is automatically
forwarded to the user’s single real inbox. When a user realizes that one of the
email addresses that were given out has been abused, he or she can block that
address while keeping other addresses open.
contribution”, says Ami Grynberg “is to create a technology that makes this
approach secure, practical and simple to use. To this end, we let users create
virtual inboxes on demand. We then digitally sign each email address they
create, making it spam proof. To
further enhance usability of this innovative technique, we integrated it with
our SignupShield smart form filling software. SignupShield fills out digitally
signed email address into sign-up forms on Web sites. All with just 1-click. We
also let users set the software up so that their outgoing emails are modified to
carry a virtual return address, thus keeping their real inbox confidential”.

of creating multiple additional email addresses on demand, thus reducing the
exposure of their real inbox address.
