Over 40 years dealing with spam threats! Despite Bill Gates and other software moguls early announcing its extinction ten years ago, and cyber security companies declaring to 99.9% filtering capabilities, today spam stands for 60% of global email traffic and takes around 80% of the available broadband.
Why the current protection model does not solve the email spam problem?! Because it uses FILTERS (some more complex than others, like filtering content for IP reputation, using heuristic methods, white lists, black lists, grey lists, etc.), and filtering models are reactive models, they’re palliatives, unsuitable, because they go quickly obsolete by the amazing spam and botnet technology that exponentially increases almost every day.
