MX Logic: Spam law compliance still low

Published on .

Just 5% of all spam that filtered through MX Logic’s Threat Center in February complied with the CAN-SPAM Act, the federal anti-spam law that went into effect 14 months ago. Compliance has consistently hovered in the low single digits, said MX Logic, a provider of anti-spam, virus protection and content-filtering solutions. Compliance hit an all-time low of 0.54% in July 2004 and peaked at 7% in December 2004 and November 2004. MX Logic said CAN-SPAM alone is not a silver bullet but rather part of an overall antispam arsenal that must include technology solutions, education and industry cooperation to improve identity and security protocols online.
