Commtouch Unifies Security With Triple Technology Appliance

Commtouch : 16 February, 2011  (New Product)
Messaging security, antivirus and internet protection combined in unified threat management appliance offered by Commtouch
Commtouch has announced the introduction of its new unified Internet security solution, which brings together messaging security, Web security and antivirus into a single engine.  

The unified engine can be integrated into the products of security and networking vendors and into service providers’ infrastructure. Typical solutions that would benefit from the unified engine are software or hardware solutions or services that combine multiple security technologies, such as unified threat management (UTM), secure content filtering gateways and SaaS security solutions.

“With a combined ‘triple-play’ solution, each technology makes use of the other to create an even stronger barrier against ever-increasing blended threats,” said Amir Lev, Commtouch’s CTO. “From a business perspective, the single interface also reduces short and long-term integration and operational costs.”

The three security technologies cross-enhance each other by sharing intelligence about Internet threats, providing better protection overall. There are several instances in which this information exchange would take place.  For example, if a phishing web site threat is detected, the malicious URL is shared with Commtouch Anti-Spam so that emails containing the phishing link can be blocked. This data-sharing is enabled by Commtouch’s cloud-based GlobalView Network, which collects and analyzes billions of Internet transactions in real-time.

Using an integrated detection engine offers some clear technical benefits to the vendors and service providers that incorporate it into their solutions:

* Enhances performance by reducing resource utilization compared to the larger footprint required by separate components

* Significantly reduces integration time of all three services since there is a unified interface

The unified solution is a win-win on the business side, since it significantly simplifies operations. There is:

* one vendor to manage

* one invoice to process

* one address for support

* one company to interface with for training, roadmap discussions, or any type of technical or operational updates

Each of the three solutions within the unified engine is best-of-breed, and they are available individually as well. These industry-leading stand-alone solutions also benefit from the shared security information distributed via the GlobalView Network.

“This new engine presents a unified interface across our product lines, providing a thoroughly integrated, simplified, and cost-effective combination of technologies for our partners,” concluded Mr Lev.

The single engine includes the following products: GlobalView Web Security, Anti-Spam, Command Antivirus, and Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection.  The Command Antivirus division was acquired from Authentium in September, 2010.
