Defensio logoMontreal-based Defensio launched on November 7th to much fanfare. The company promises to “end annoying comment spam”. This is a great goal that we can all get behind (except the spammers, of course).

Defensio touts an average accuracy of 99.56% and product characteristics such as:

  • Easy management
  • Personalized filtering
  • Transparency through statistics

Blogging platforms supported include:

In addition, developer plug-ins are available for:

An API allows developers to integrate Defensio into their own application(s). Specifications are available here: Defensio API Specifications.
