This investment will strengthen Cloudmark's already solid financial position, enabling the company to further fund research and development and expand its ability to meet the growing worldwide demand for innovative e-mail security solutions among enterprise, service provider, small business and consumer markets.

“Cloudmark is solving a real-life problem that plagues corporations around the world,” said Ben Cukier, Principal of FTVentures. “Its award-winning anti-spam product and its anti-fraud solution are the most innovative and effective technologies we have seen.

Cloudmark is the answer.”
