Mailprotector started in 1999 providing a MS Exchange Spam Filter, helping to pioneer the managed email security industry.
Mailprotector’s parent company, Virtual Connect Technologies, was founded primarily as a website development company. At that time they had developed a couple of intranet sites whose users were fed up with spam, viruses, and the whole lot of issues that come with an unprotected email system. So they rolled up our sleeves and set ourselves to work, and soon they had engineered a basic email filtering system that worked beautifully for our customers. Their system worked so well that they decided that they might be able to share it with others. So they re-tooled our system to work as a managed service, added a ton of new and useful features, called it “Mailprotector” and put up a website for it. Soon people started giving Mailprotector a try, then they raved about it to their friends. Before they knew it they were protecting the email of tens of thousands of users and processing millions of messages each day.
