Swiss Insurer Selects Secure Computing

Swiss Re has deployed the Secure Computing Webwasher solution to protect against digital threats and ensure regulatory policy compliance

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Secure Computing Corporation (NASDAQ: SCUR), a leading enterprise gateway security company, today announced that Swiss Re, the world’s leading global reinsurer, has deployed the Secure Computing Webwasher® solution to protect against digital threats and ensure regulatory policy compliance.

Swiss Re has chosen Webwasher to further strengthen its strong security policies and practices at the gateway, adeptly filtering Internet traffic, efficiently blocking increasingly sophisticated inbound threats such as spyware, phishing and other malware or fraud, and guarding against outbound threats such as sensitive data leaks.

Webwasher is the industry's first and only reputation-based Web gateway security solution. It delivers reputation-based URL filtering for corporate users surfing the Web, and bi-directional protection for enterprise networks. It incorporates global intelligence from the company's industry-leading reputation system, TrustedSource™, which provides source-based reputation scores for web page content, messages, attachments and images. This enables organizations to detect and deter security threats often well in advance of danger.

Prior to deploying Webwasher, Swiss Re had a security IT environment comprising of multiple point products, which needed to be upgraded to provide an increased level of protection or flexibility in an ever-changing security environment.

“The Webwasher technology and appliance met our requirements best,” said Christian Bai, Senior Systems Engineer at Swiss Re. “The appliance offers the highest level of flexibility because of its ability to define very granular rule sets and enforce them.”
