Web 2.0 content security from Optenet

Optenet : 09 March, 2009  (New Product)
Dynamic protection offered to enterprises from web 2.0 threats across a range of security products from Optenet
Optenet has announced the immediate availability of Optenet NetSecure, Optenet MailSecure, Optenet WebSecure and Optenet WebFilter; offering dynamic proactive protection from the latest and most aggressive Web 2.0 threats. These flexible offerings of Web filtering, antivirus, antispam, antiphishing, antispyware, malware, peer-to-peer and instant messaging protection are designed to fit enterprises' budget and security requirements.

Traditional static approaches to content analysis can leave organisations vulnerable to the dynamic virus and malware threats associated with Web 2.0 technologies. To fully protect themselves, enterprises require the latest industry intelligence in a highly integrated and cost-effective offering to combat zero day vulnerabilities, blended threats and the next generation of attacks.

"UK businesses are facing an unprecedented and rapidly evolving threat landscape that has been accentuated by increasingly prevalent social networking applications used in offices throughout the land," says Omar Aguirre, Optenet's Chief Operating Officer. "As a result, security providers must support enterprises with solutions that can keep up with new Web 2.0 threats. NetSecure, MailSecure, WebSecure and WebFilter offer companies dynamic and complete protection, allowing organisations to choose the option that best suits their needs and budget without compromising on effectiveness."

In conjunction with the launch of its updated security solutions for enterprises, Optenet is introducing its automated network for classifying and identifying Web and email content. Optenet's Global Intelligence Acquisition Network for Threats (Optenet GIANT) is a collective intelligence network that studies Internet traffic and pushes updates out to every Optenet installation. As a result, organisations can ensure that new threats are accurately blocked - ultimately enabling organisations to respond quickly to potential attacks before they propagate.

"The dynamic nature and multi-content of Web 2.0 makes traditional detection systems such as the manual classification of content, malware signatures and static URL lists obsolete. It is important to now have an automated mechanism for content analysis and classification. Optenet's GIANT delivers real-time threat data from a range of resources to ensure accurate and dynamic protection for our customers," adds Aguirre.

Based on the same architecture that has established Optenet as a leader in providing content security solutions to service providers around the world, the company's new security solutions empower enterprises with the real-time performance and positive end user experience service providers already rely on. This architecture - Carrier Class Optenet Transparent Traffic Analyzer (CCOTTA) - provides real-time processing and coordination of all network traffic passing through. CCOTTA enables Optenet to provide real-time performance without requiring expensive hardware. CCOTTA also provides enterprise IT managers with the peace of mind of knowing they will not be in a constant refresh cycle of purchasing faster, more expensive appliances as bandwidth or user requirements increase.
