ZEROSPAM leverages artificial intelligence with the support of the Government of Canada

MONTREAL, May 24, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - ZEROSPAM Security, a leading Canadian provider in the cloud email security market, announces the launch of an important machine-learning project financially supported in part by National Research Council Canada's Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP). Thanks to the support of the NRC-IRAP, a team of four researchers hired by ZEROSPAM will work on how to improve detection of spam and other dangerous and undesirable email messages based on artificial intelligence's recent findings. This two year project will enable ZEROSPAM to improve the efficiency of its Anti-Spam solution, further establish its leadership, explore new markets and grow its business.

Mr. Alain Tapp, Professor and associate member of the MILA, will act as advisor to the project, supervising and validating the scientific method used. The MILA (Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms), founded and directed by Yoshua Bengio, is a lab dedicated to the development of deep learning and deep neural networks algorithms and their applications to new fields.

"We are thrilled by the launch of this project, says David Poellhuber, Chief Operations Officer at ZEROSPAM Security, and being able to count on the knowledge and expertise of some of University of Montreal's finer minds is a huge privilege. This project is a good example of how top teaching institutions and industry players can work together to derive practical applications from deep learning and machine learning findings. I might add that this is a very promising field for the City of Montreal."


ZEROSPAM Security is the only 100% Canadian pure-play cloud Anti-Spam provider. Used by large corporations as well as SMBs, ZEROSPAM provides efficient detection of all email-borne threats and superior protection against ransomware and spearphishing.
