Commtouch Advances in France through Agreement with Jet Multimedia, a Subsidiary of Neuf Telecom; Leading Hosting Company Implements Commtouch Technology.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Commtouch(R) (Nasdaq:CTCHC), the developer of ground breaking RPD(TM) technology for real time anti-spam and virus zero-hour protection, announced today an agreement with Jet Multimedia, France's leading provider of enterprise hosting and other interactive online services. Jet Multimedia has already implemented Commtouch's anti-spam technology, to offer value-added services to its thousands of French enterprise users.

The Best Anti-Spam Solution for French Enterprises

"We chose Commtouch technology not only because industry analysts have attested that it has the best detection/accuracy performance in the industry, but because our extensive testing has also showed that Commtouch delivers the best anti-spam solution for French spam," said Arnaud Bertrand, Jet Multimedia's Technical Manager. "Now we can offer thousands of enterprises throughout France unparalleled spam protection."

Bertrand added, "As a managed service provider with thousands of users, we were particularly impressed by Commtouch's perfect accuracy, which ensures that no 'good' email will be mistakenly treated as spam. Given that it is content, format and language-agnostic, this is not the kind of solution that works today, but needs to be replaced tomorrow. We expect to continue enjoying its superior performance for years to come."

A Milestone in Commtouch's French Expansion; Part of Global Strategy

Gideon Mantel, CEO of Commtouch, said, "This agreement emphasizes both the positive momentum to our growth in the French market and the continuing global reach of our RPD powered technology. We are particularly pleased to collaborate with Jet Multimedia, which has a reputation for being an early adopter of cutting-edge technologies."

Jet Multimedia was the first French company to implement Microsoft Hosted Exchange 2003.

Part of the 1 billion euro/year Neuf Telecom Group, Jet Multimedia is France's leading provider of value-added hosting services. Jet Multimedia is also active in e-business, multi-channel client relationship management, online administration, IP security platform management, email outsourcing and advanced telephony services.
