Combined zero hour spam and malware protection software.

Aladdin Knowledge Systems : 03 March, 2008  (New Product)
e-Safe from Aladdin Knowledge Systems now offers the powerful combination of protection against zero hour malware whilst also reducing spam.
Aladdin Knowledge Systems has announced the release of Aladdin eSafe 6 Feature Release 2. This latest version of Aladdin eSafe features dual anti-spam engines for zero-hour, best-of-breed anti-spam and malware outbreak prevention, in addition to enhanced content security.

Aladdin eSafe is the first to combine the world's best real-time reputation and deep content analysis technologies in one dual-engine solution, providing zero-hour spam sender reputation and malware analysis as well as real-time content analysis. All email traffic is checked against a continuously updated spam and spyware database for the most up-to-date protection available. Enterprises can now enjoy the most complete spam and malware detection solution, which is equally effective in any language or email format.

The first anti-spam engine performs real-time sender reputation and distribution patterns analysis, monitoring traffic worldwide at ISP and other key email transfer locations to identify new spam and malware outbreaks as soon as they emerge. For emails from senders not catalogued in a local spam signatures database, Aladdin eSafe sends and receives a reputation query in real-time, classifying the email and blocking harmful senders. Aladdin eSafe proactively checks any mass distributed email - spam, fraud, phishing or malware - without blocking legitimate emails such as newsletters and mailing lists.

Performing simultaneous content analysis, the second engine prevents spam on three levels: phishing, fingerprint or fuzzy fingerprint. A combination of user-selected methods, some of which include smart signature matching, text analysis, URL categories and meta-heuristics, determine if incoming email is any form of phishing. Aladdin eSafe v6 Feature Release 2 checks emails against known spam characteristics, like matching a criminal's fingerprint, as well as looking for corrupted or modified image files- "fuzzy fingerprint." Fuzzy fingerprint analysis detects a "unique" spam message that is at least 10 percent different from any other spam message ever received, but still contains enough similar characteristics to be identifiable. Similarities include spam content as well as patterns of distribution, including the originating country, common subject lines, the host Web site and the path of the e-mail.

"Aladdin eSafe 6 Feature Release 2 offers the most comprehensive email security available today," said Tsion Gonen, vice president of the Aladdin eSafe Business Unit. "Functions that normally require two or three products are automatically covered by Aladdin eSafe's dual engines, protecting enterprises from spam and malware with one integrated solution."

This latest version of Aladdin eSafe also offers enterprises unique security by stripping meta-data from MS Office attachments to prevent exposure of hidden, confidential information embedded in Office files, including revisions and collaboration information, preventing incidents before they happen.
