Bimba Deploys Sidewinder

Secure Computing announced that Bimba Manufacturing has switched to the Sidewinder Network Gateway Security appliance

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ: SCUR), a leading enterprise gateway security company, today announced that Bimba Manufacturing has switched from a competitor's firewall to the Sidewinder® Network Gateway Security appliance. Bimba's previous firewall did not protect the Illinois-based manufacturer from all malware threats—particularly viruses in encrypted e-mail messages. However, the Sidewinder appliance, with its unique reputation-based security, blocks viruses and other threats whether they are encrypted or not, in both incoming and outgoing traffic.

"Our testing showed us that viruses in encrypted e-mails were able to get past our former security products," recounted Matt Nantais, systems administrator at Bimba Manufacturing. "We conducted the same tests using the Secure Computing solution, and it prevented all of the malware from getting to the network."

The Sidewinder appliance is the first and only enterprise firewall to integrate reputation-based security technology, putting it well ahead of offerings by other large security and networking companies. With industry-leading global intelligence from TrustedSource™ customers receive real-time behavior monitoring of URLs, domains, IPs, message content and images. The resulting reputation score enables proactive blocking of the majority of spam, spyware, viruses, zombies, and Trojans at the gateway—well before they ever gain access to a network. "Thanks to TrustedSource, Sidewinder customers are dropping up to 92 percent of spam with no additional CPU overhead," noted Scott Montgomery, vice president of product management at Secure Computing. "That saves significant bandwidth and improves overall network performance."
