Ottawa, ON, Canada -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/29/2006 --The fight against spam just got easier today in California. Roaring Penguin Software Inc., makers of the acclaimed CanIt-PRO anti-spam solution, announced a co-marketing initiative with the California Internet Service Providers Association, CISPA.

Mark Esser Chairman of the Board of Directors for CISPA and a long-time user of CanIt-PRO for his own ISP The SuperNet (, a Division of Markon Computer Sciences Inc., recommended CanIt-Domain-PRO to CISPA. Said Esser, “We recognized early on that Roaring Penguin had an anti-spam solution that was uniquely tailored for ISPs. We have been running CanIt-PRO since 2003. Our vision of a fair and open internet for all Californians includes affordable anti-spam software for ISPs."

“Many ISPs across the country are using CanIt-PRO to manage spam for their customers and we have no problem recommending CanIt-PRO as a cost-effective method of blocking spam to our members,” said Esser. “Spam is a plague to ISPs and we have noticed an upsurge as spammers changed tactics recently and tried image based spam. CanIt-PRO caught the deluge without any problems,” said Esser.

CanIt-PRO is available as a software download, a soft appliance, or as a pre-configured plug-and-play appliance.

CanIt-Domain-PRO allows an ISP or Web Host to delegate control of spam filtering across multiple domains.
