|Enterprise-strength Spam, Virus, and Web Filter Security|
The ProSecure STM series of Web and email security appliances combine best-of-breed securitytechnologies and patented* Stream Scanning Technology to protect businesses against today’sWeb and email threats. Viruses and spyware hosted on Web pages, email phishing attacks,spam, malware infected emails, and other threats are now all part of a regular repertoire ofsophisticated blended attacks that businesses now face.
While other solutions significantly dilute the efficacy of their offering by either utilizing opensource or cutting essential features and services from their enterprise products to cut costs,ProSecure has partnered with industry-leading Kaspersky Lab and Commtouch® to bringbest-of-breed enterprise-strength Web and email security technologies to the STM platform.
Web and Email Security - Redefined
ProSecure STM Appliances combine performance with comprehensive security coverage.Patented Stream Scanning Technology enables the use of an extensive virus and malwaredatabase while maintaining a high level of throughput and minimizing scanning-inducedlatency. The flexible modular software design architecture leverages patented Stream ScanningTechnology to scan files and data streams up to 5x faster than conventional methods.
The ProSecure STM employs millions of signatures to protect against known malware threats,and advanced behavioral zero-hour protection technology to proactively discover and blockany suspected threats that have not yet been identified. The ProSecure STM utilizes a hybridin-the-cloud Distributed Spam/Web Analysis architecture that shields networks from spam,phishing attacks, malicious Web sites, unwanted content, and other Web and email-bornethreats. The STM’s application control feature allows businesses to enforce company networkusage policies and preserve productivity by blocking access to public instant messaging andpeer-to-peer applications.
With ProSecure STM, subscriptions are simple with no per-user licensing. ProSecure Web andEmail subscriptions each contain comprehensive protection for an unlimited number of users.
Revolutionary Stream Scanning Platform
Given the high performance requirements of scanning latency sensitive Web traffic, incorporatingenterprise-grade security software technologies into traditional content security platforms hasbeen a very difficult task. That is why the ProSecure STM features patented Stream ScanningTechnology which analyzes data streams as they enter the network. The ProSecure StreamScanning approach is many times faster than that of traditional batch-based scanning methodsin which the entire file is buffered before it is scanned.
Because of its nature, traditional batch-based scanning methods introduce latency to networktraffic. While latency is more tolerable for email traffic, for large amounts of HTTP Web traffic, such latency often slows Web browsing to a crawl. Content security solutions in the past have tried to overcome the latency issue by minimizing the malware signature set, scanning only ahandful of file types, or by avoiding Web traffic scanning altogether. This approach exposes anentire vector of the network to malware-based attacks.
Simple Setup, Ease of Management
The ProSecure STM deploys in-line in a matter of minutes, anywhere in the network. It runsautomatically and unobtrusively. There is no need to reconfigure the network, unlike traditionalproxy-based solutions. Simply set and forget. Administration is performed through an intuitiveWeb-based interface. Set granular per user/group-based policies and alerts, check summarystatistics and graphical reports, drill down to IP address-level data, send log data to third party syslog servers, and integrate with standard network management tools via SNMP.
For many administrators and IT personnel one of their biggest nightmares is the managementof individual licenses or “seats”. Buying additional licenses when computers and personnel are added to the network is time consuming and costly. The ProSecure STM series offers Web andemail protection subscriptions with no “per-user” licensing.
