SAN MATEO, California and PARIS, October 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Bizanga, the global company behind the most scalable and full-featured email and message processing platform, and Vade Retro, a leading company in Anti-Spam technology, today announced that RENATER, the French National Telecommunication network for Technology, Education and Research has turned to Bizanga's Intelligent Message Processor (IMP) and Vade Retro solution as the system behind its newly launched Anti-Spam Service.

As one of the largest national research and education networks in Europe (NREN), RENATER selected Bizanga's IMP platform together with Vade Retro's Anti-Spam solution and Anti-Virus software. The IMP was chosen for its versatility in deploying a service for its research and education community after extensive comparative testing. It best matched RENATER's need for easily accessible detailed information, statistics and usage data for post-processing while providing the throughput and scalability necessary for such a large deployment.

We are very pleased with the flexibility of the IMP, said Professor Dany Vandromme, RENATER's Director. Bizanga's solution enables us to easily cater to the individual requirements of each RENATER member. Furthermore, it integrated into our complex infrastructure without a hitch.

RENATER provides the multi-Gigabit Internet backbone and services on its dark-fiber network for more than 1,000 research and education sites across France.

We are extremely pleased about this agreement with RENATER, said Serge Dugas, GM EMEA of Bizanga. This is our first reference in the public sector in Europe, opening a new area of growth for Bizanga. As in other markets, we have again been able to demonstrate our ability for better performance and scalability, show better return on investment and deliver a solution on time and exceeding customer requirements.

We are very happy to collaborate with RENATER. Vade Retro Technology is an antispam solution which will allow to secure all members of the RENATER network with a high quality of protection, said Emile Devred, Business Manager of Vade Retro Technology.
