Only Governments Can Tackle Spammers

We need government funding and technology, not just legislation. So states Eran Reshef, the CEO of an email security firm which has been forced out of business by continual Denial of Service attacks on its company servers.
The company was well funded having recently raised $5m in equity. According Eran Reshef

“This is something that’s really got to be left to governments to decide. To fight the spammers you really need to spend $100m.”
“It’s a dirty little secret that there is no real way to totally prevent denial-of-service attacks – if the attacker is prepared to put enough money in, then they can beat you every time.”

A worrying turn with the ever increasing volumes of spam arriving at company servers.
