New York — Microsoft founder Bill Gates said in 1998 that spam was an
annoying and sometimes destructive use of the Internet’s unprecedented efficiency. Gates communicated the problem. The makers of Spam Cube created the solution.

The launch of Spam Cube gives everyday personal computer users a revolutionary new tool in
the battle against unwanted email. Working in harmony with every operating system and nearly
all email providers, Spam Cube protects up to four home computers with its breakthrough antispam technology. A technology spawned by the frustration felt by computer users worldwide, forced to endure invasive junk email campaigns.

“I’d turn on my computer and check my email and have 200 new messages,” said Spam CubeCEO Joseph P. Marino. “About 10 of them would be real emails. And some would look real at first, but I could tell they were phishing emails. It was getting out of control.”

So, in 2005, Marino decided it was time to take back control. Marino, along with company CTO
Jonathan Fortin, developed a small cube that packs a big punch. Just four inches tall and
weighing in at eight ounces, the Spam Cube is roughly the size of a pack of gum and requires
simple plug-it-in installation.

Consumers typically have to pay monthly or annual fees for spam-blocking, but since the Spam
Cube has patented built-in anti-spam technology there is no subscription costs to stop spam with the Spam Cube. And the device adapts to all computers, Mac or PC, and works with all routers, wired or wireless.

Spam’s difficult to recognize and is similar to the trend taking place in the regular mail market.
Advertisers disguise mail as checks or important documents, with phrases like “open
immediately” and “time sensitive material.” Spam content is hard to stop because sender
addresses are often fabricated, and even when they’re not fake, they’re easy to change. But
Spam Cube is able to attack those sources and sweep the spam out of your email inbox, whether it’s web-based or not. Spam Cube, priced at $150, works like a private investigator, identifying known solicitors of spam and their common keywords.

Spam Cube’s cutting-edge advances go beyond stopping spam. The company offers an optional
service called Security OnDemand, which deletes email viruses from inboxes and alerts users
whenever they receive a fraudulent email. For an annual rate of $52, Security OnDemand
provides McAfee and Symantec Norton anti-virus, and Spam Cube’s anti-phishing technology.
“Phishing emails are the most low-tech form of technology crime,” said Marino. “They’re someone posing as your bank, eBay or Amazon and requesting your account information or your credit card number. Actually, they just want to steal your money or even worse, your identity.”

Advances in computer and Internet technology have formed a global village of information and
communication once thought impossible. Unfortunately, it has also created an environment for solicitors to use unscrupulousness methods to cash-in. Spam Cube helps protect consumers from that environment, offering solutions when confronting troublesome spam.
