F5 Networks and Secure Computing Corporation jointly announced the industry's first reputation-based network edge security module

SEATTLE -- F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, and Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ: SCUR), a leading enterprise gateway security company, today jointly announced the industry’s first reputation-based network edge security module. The new BIG-IP® Message Security Module (MSM), leveraging reputation data from Secure Computing’s TrustedSource™ multi-identity reputation engine, extends protection for enterprise message applications to the edge of the corporate network and provides businesses with a more powerful and efficient tool for dealing with the growing volume of unwanted email.

BIG-IP MSM can eliminate up to 70 percent of unwanted email at the edge of the network utilizing TrustedSource -- before it gets through the firewall -- significantly increasing the scaling capacity of existing enterprise anti-spam solutions.

“BIG-IP MSM gives organizations a more cost-effective way to scale their anti-spam and mail infrastructure by identifying and rejecting or quarantining email at the network edge,” said Jason Needham, Director of Product Management at F5 Networks. “Now, customers can leverage the power and flexibility of their existing BIG-IP deployments to perform a real-time lookup of sender reputation from the most advanced reputation engine in the world, Secure Computing’s TrustedSource. BIG-IP MSM is a powerful proof point of the TMOS architecture’s modularity and flexibility demonstrating value to customers. This is the first step toward F5’s unique vision of creating an open and integrated application delivery network utilizing our own best of breed technology as well as other vendors’ like Secure Computing.
