NIXON PEABODY SELECTS EASYLINK'S MAILWATCH E-MAIL PROTECTION.

EasyLink Services Corporation (NASDAQ: EASY), Edison, N.J., a global provider of outsourced messaging services to enterprises and service providers, has announced that Nixon Peabody LLP, a Rochester-based law firm with over 500 attorneys in 11 cities throughout the northeastern United States, has chosen EasyLink's MailWatch boundary services to shield its employees from viruses, spam, offensive material and denial of service attacks.

EasyLink MailWatch Service uses highly advanced anti-virus technology to stop more than 57,000 known viruses and variants that can be embedded in e-mail attachments, before they reach the network. MailWatch also filters offensive e-mail material, blocks unwanted spam and "junk e-mail," controls oversized attachments and protects against denial of service attacks that can interrupt productivity.

"We chose EasyLink's MailWatch Service because while it is critical that we have a reliable system that intercepts viruses, MailWatch also protects against spam, offensive e-mails and denial of service attacks," said Barbara Kunkel, Nixon Peabody's Director of IT. "With one solution, EasyLink was able to implement everything we needed in order to conduct business without interruption."

Bill Fallon, vice president, Marketing, EasyLink, commented, "Information security is a vital issue for the legal industry. Due to the pervasive nature of e-mail as a tool for the movement of legal information, EasyLink MailWatch Service is a vital tool for this information-intensive industry to help maintain trouble-free operations."
