BoxSentry Fights False Positives

Singapore-based BoxSentry has been busy. While beefing up its technology base -- in part to compensate for the loss of the challenge/response layer -- the company has developed new techniques to better identify false positives.

BoxSentry has wrapped the new techniques in a product it's calling LogiQ. The idea is that it can run alongside a traditional spam filter and automatically retrieve any false positives it finds.

As an illustration, BoxSentry offered a "typical" example: Over the test period, a deployed spam filter from one of the well-known vendors delivered 11,500 legitimate messages, but LogiQ found an additional 680 false positives in the filter's quarantine. That's a roughly average false positive rate, in our experience. Not exactly state-of-the-art, but pretty representative of deployed spam filters. It might equate to one false positive every week per user.

BoxSentry says that 100% of the false positives identified with these new techniques really are false positives -- although they may not catch all of them.

A bold claim; we look forward to digging into the details of the techniques under NDA. ... Richi Jennings
