COMPUTER wizards in Folkestone are behind an innovative piece of software that could save email and Internet users worldwide from the nuisance and dangers of unsolicited emails.

MK Secure Solutions, a British company which now operates globally developing electronic messaging security, has drawn on the talents of computer programmers in Folkestone to create its latest software solution, Emailkey.

Emailkey provides a filter that allows users to control messages accessing their inboxes while also providing a tracking service that traces any third parties a user’s email address may have been forwarded to.

The software also protects computer systems by providing a virus check at the same time as it blocks the spam mail which often carries these viruses.

Alan Forward, head of production for the Folkestone development team, said: “The company was formed 18 months ago and we have found that drawing on skills in the local community is a far more cost effective way of operating and doesn’t impact on the level of skills available.”

The company has found that operating on the web is good for business and is confident that its product will reach users worldwide.

Mr Forward added: “The beauty of the web is that it takes away boundaries, and because this system requires no downloads it is very easy to use.”

The company is keeping the Folkestone team busy this month with the release of a family-based product allowing control of Internet content and a small business product which will help protect email into and out of company computers.
