Top marks achieved in ThreatWall review

ESoft : 21 January, 2009  (New Product)
Press recognition for ThreatWall as SC Magazine awards top marks for anti-virus and web filtering product
ESoft has announced that SC Magazine has awarded eSoft 5 out of 5 stars in a review of its ThreatWall 450 appliance, as published in the January 2009 edition.

SC Magazine reviewer Dave Mitchell was impressed by the ThreatWall's ease of use, sophistication, and level of security. He was also impressed by the fact that eSoft develops all its own security solutions - such as anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-phishing and web content filtering - creating a more integrated and effective security solution offered at "a very competitive price."

With the Web ThreatPak, the ThreatWall can enforce policies restricting games, gambling, pornography, and other undesirable websites. The Web ThreatPak also has real-time updates for blocking new malicious and phishing websites. With the Email ThreatPak, spam filtering, data loss prevention, and email security are enabled. Both ThreatPaks include intrusion prevention and anti-virus capabilities. The review tested most of these applications with the following results:

* Setup: "Appliances that are easy to deploy always get our vote of confidence and the ThreatWall 450 is one such."

* Configuration: "The well-designed web console provides easy access to all the ThreatPaks."

* Reporting: "The useful ThreatMonitor screen provides a row of tabbed folders with plenty of graphical information."

* Web filtering: "Web filtering is good, with best results if all categories are applied." And "Social networking is covered nicely and, with this blocked, we were denied access to sites such as Facebook and MySpace."

* Spam filtering: "Impressively, the 450 caught every bit of spam during the test period."

* Intrusion prevention: "Intrusion Prevention is where eSoft has been labouring hardest - and it shows, with a range of tough measures."

* Cost and performance: "For a low price, it delivers a wealth of features, many functioning straight out of the box, delivering top performance."

The reviewer awarded 5 out of 5 stars and ended with this verdict: "The ThreatWall delivers a bumper bundle of security features, all at a very competitive price."

"eSoft is delighted to be awarded five out of five stars for the ThreatWall 450 by SC Magazine, particularly because it comes on the heels of the same product winning the SC Magazine Best Buy award for Email Content Management in June 2008,' said Patrick Walsh, eSoft's Director of Product Management and Marketing. 'eSoft strives to make the strongest, simplest, most affordable security products possible and this recognition validates our success in these areas."
