Spam Arrest Chooses UltraDNS to Enhance Service Delivery

NeuStar has announced that Spam Arrest, a Seattle-based company that efficiently monitors and stops automated junk email, has chosen NeuStar's UltraDNS Managed DNS and Traffic Management Services to support the delivery of services to Spam Arrest's global customer base.

The UltraDNS Managed DNS Service provides the critical infrastructure that Spam Arrest requires to achieve the highest levels of performance and reliability. Through proprietary advanced routing technologies in the UltraDNS global network, DNS requests are directed to the geographically closest server in the network, enabling the fastest and most reliable response times.

"Our unique, patented method for verifying relationships between email senders and recipients is dependent on having a high performance DNS infrastructure to ensure effective spam filtering," said Brian Cartmell, CEO of Spam Arrest. "We needed a global, carrier-class infrastructure — and with NeuStar's UltraDNS Services, this verification can be executed anywhere in the world in the fastest possible time."

By leveraging NeuStar's Managed DNS Service, Spam Arrest also has been able to take advantage of UltraDNS Traffic Management Services (Directional DNS and SiteBacker). The Directional DNS service provides geographic traffic shaping by responding to DNS requests based on which of the 14 UltraDNS network nodes, across five continents, receives the request. SiteBacker is the UltraDNS monitoring and failover service which redirects traffic by modifying DNS responses based on server availability. These services require no expensive hardware and are fully integrated with the UltraDNS Managed DNS Service.

"Spam continues to be a major problem for enterprises globally," said Alex Berry, senior vice president of NeuStar's Internet and Infrastructure Services Group. "We are pleased that our UltraDNS Managed Services have enhanced Spam Arrest's ability to address this issue. DNS is a critical component to the effective service delivery of network-based applications, and increasingly, service providers are looking to UltraDNS Services to address their DNS infrastructure requirements."
