specifically to address the Russian market. The solution is already
operational in a major national and regional carrier and is available
    Spamooborona already protects the mailboxes of millions of users,
filtering out approximately 95 percent of junk email. It was developed after
having proven to be an effective solution to guard against spam on the
Yandex.Mail service, and made available as commercial software in 2005. Since
that time, hundreds of companies including some of Russia's largest service
providers such as Comstar UTS, Golden Telecom/Beeline and E1 have adopted
Spamooborona to keep their email clean of spam.

Russian service providers by utilizing Yandex' specialized technology and
local market knowledge to provide a powerful and massively scalable solution
to their messaging abuse problems.

combining local and global competence to provide comprehensive email and
message management solutions," said Serge Dugas, Head of Bizanga's EMEA

provides a compelling offering for the Russian service provider market with
its specific requirements."
