MESSAGELEVEL.COM UNVEILS MESSAGE LEVEL PROTOCOL.

MessageLevel.com, has unveiled Message Level Email Authentication Protocol. This patent-pending technology enables full protection against email spoofing, electronic messaging fraud, and email Phishing attacks.

Using components of the email messages themselves, the Message Level Protocol creates origination records for each outgoing message, which enables Receiving Systems to query back automatically as to the authenticity of received email based upon whether or not the messages actually originated from the purported sender. As such, the Message Level Protocol creates an impenetrable solution against email fraud, guarantees 100% detection of spoofed emails, and generates absolutely no false positives. The Message Level Protocol provides companies with a secure, reliable, and easily accessible solution to prevent spoofed email and Phishing attacks, which has previously been seen as impossible.

The Message Level Protocol is available for deployment in a number of different forms:

* Message Level Appliance -- can be deployed by any company wishing to eliminate Spoofing attacks aimed at their exposed consumer facing email accounts (e.g. Support@mybank.com). The Appliance can either be configured directly within a company's existing infrastructure or externally within third party relay systems. Thereby, providing a scalable means for companies to continue using distributed and external email systems without disrupting the flow of electronic communications to end-users.

* Message Level Reader -- a small application for end-users to verify received emails from any Outgoing System utilizing the Message Level Protocol. The Reader plugs directly into end-users' email clients and guarantees the authenticity of any received emails from an array of providers, including Banks, Credit Card companies, Retailers, and any other organization that could be forged for the purposes of email fraud.

* Message Level Enterprise -- deployed by larger organizations (ISP's, Government Agencies, etc) desiring to authenticate all incoming and outgoing email traffic directly at the server level. Message Level Enterprise allows the entire domain to be protected from spoofing, spam, and Phishing attacks. As such, Message Level Enterprise not only eliminates external Phishing attacks against a company's domain name, but also from spoofing systems attempting to inject a virus, steal information, or disrupt operations within an organization by pretending to be legitimate corporate users to internal employees (e.g.HumanResources@yourcompany.com).

* Message Level Control Center -- is a Client-side desktop application that interacts with a variety of email clients in order to not only authenticate incoming emails but also to authenticate outgoing messages to end recipients independent of whether or not an end-user's company, ISP, or email provider has implemented the Message Level Protocol.

Other "solutions" currently rely upon circumstantial evidence, such as whether or not pictures match in emails, looking for a key in the header, or publishing IP addresses for comparison are all subject to fraud. Moreover, email Phishing has now gone to the point of spoofing IP addresses in order to bypass current IP lookup measures in place. As such the Message Level Protocol is the only measure that guarantees complete protection and brings authenticity back to email in order to stem direct losses for companies suffering from email fraud.

MessageLevel.com is a provider of email authentication technology used to help eliminate spoofing, phishing, and email fraud. Message Level is available in a variety of interoperable applications ranging from desktop plug-ins (e.g. Outlook) for end-users to verify the authenticity of all received email, to network appliances for companies to secure their consumer facing emails (e.g. support@yourbank.com), to enterprise-wide authentication systems for ISP's and large organizations to protect all incoming, outgoing, and internal email.
