Key Features

  •  Provides fast, scalable, and reliable content scanning
  • Protects against viruses, spyware, and other unwanted content in a single scan
  • Easily integrates proprietary and patented URL filtering scanners and industry-leading antivirus technologies

Dedicated virus scanning for Web traffic is recommended for the following reasons:

  • Scanning Web traffic lets you catch and block threats at the gateway, rather than multiple times at each desktop. Users can potentially disable desktop protection, which can leave your network vulnerable to attack.
  •  Because many people now use Web-based email, email-born viruses that would otherwise be caught by antivirus scanning at the SMTP gateway can slip through to infect the network.
  • The industry trend has been to Web-enable many application environments to include the use of technologies like ActiveX, JavaScript, and Java applets to  enhance the user experience. Many new threats are associated with these Web technologies. Malicious mobile code viruses, such as Nimda and Code Red, have entered networks as executables (for example, ActiveX, JavaScript, or Visual Basic Scripts) that appear to be part of safe Web content.
  • Once a threat has been cached, malicious code can potentially be passed to other users on the network, which can compromise additional computers and data on the network.
  • Malicious code can result in lost, stolen, or corrupted files, which can result in costly downtime to the enterprise.
