Quickly noted: Hightech Gründerfonds, Neuhaus Partners and hannover innovation fonds have invested in antispameurope, a company which provides spam protection as managed service for private customers and businesses. All customers have to do is to edit their MX-record and antispameurope will take care of filtering out unwanted e-mails, viruses and phishing attempts and happily pass on the rest. The IT department gets a break and the employees can focus on their job.
Rumor has it that Alexander Frankenberg and Holger Heinen from the Hightech Gründerfond have been testing the service looking for a solution to their spam problems in the free trial offering and instead of becoming customers became investors. The amount of the investment has not been disclosed.
