January 10, 2013

MCLEAN, Virginia, January 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Commtouch(R) (NASDAQ: CTCH), a leading provider of Internet security technology and
cloud-based security services, today announced the general availability of Commtouch
On-Premise Email Security services for the service provider market. The launch marks the
first new product delivered under the Commtouch strategy to provide OEM vendor and service
provider partners the technologies and services they need to deliver cloud-based email
Security-as-a-Service (SecaaS).

On-Premise Email Security augments the existing market-leading messaging security
suite that includes: Commtouch Anti-spam, Virus Outbreak Detection, IP Reputation, and AV,
which are cloud-assisted services for service provider environments. The new services
deliver additional simplified messaging security and optimization functionality, enabling
Commtouch to better address the requirements of any service provider that offers email
services to end users.

With the new solution, Commtouch partners can more effectively address the twin
challenges of improving email Quality of Service (QoS) for customers while reversing the
ever-rising cost of service delivery. Because the new services include technology,
process, and people, efficiency can be achieved even when partners lack internal resources
to manage email security efforts, or they have a complex email infrastructure requiring a
customized solution.

The new solution leverages email security technology assets which Commtouch acquired
as part of its purchase of Eleven GmbH. The Eleven products are already in use at global
organizations such as BMW, SAP, Siemens and Deutsche Telekom / T-Online.

“Our launch of Commtouch On-Premise Email Security for security providers further
expands our worldwide opportunity for growth,” said Shlomi Yanai, CEO of Commtouch. “This
new service continues the transformation of Commtouch from a vendor of security technology
components and cloud-assisted detection services, to a Security-as-a-Service supplier that
can provide partners with options to greatly lower cost, simplify ownership, and maximize
performance for email. Commtouch On-Premise Email Security offers market-proven benefits
for service providers desiring the highest level of email security without the
ever-increasing expense typically associated with achieving it.”
