Wedge Networks BeSecure Now Available As Virtual Appliance

The BeSecure Web Gateway protects from data loss and the spread of malware
CALGARY, ALBERTA May 4, 2011 Wedge Networks, an innovator providing remediation-based Deep Content Inspection for high-performance, network-based Web security, announced today that its BeSecure Web Gateway appliance is now available to cloud service providers to fend off content borne attacks.

Moving to the cloud is a priority for many private and public sector organizations today, leading to very real data security risks and the exponential heavy cost associated with security breaches. With the aggregation of services in the cloud and physical perimeters blurred, the industry needs high performance security solutions that can support flexible deployment topologies that are either physical or virtual. What is distinctively missing in the current mixture of security solutions such as virtual firewalls, WAF, or virtual host based solutions are good content security solutions that offer DLP and prevent the transmission of malware.

Now available for either public or private cloud service providers, the BeSecure Web Gateway protects from data loss and the spread of malware. BeSecure runs on the patented WedgeOS, going beyond conventional Deep Content Inspection approaches, translating into a scalable, real-time solution that understands the intent of Data-In-Motion, enabling the detection and remediation of both known and novel threats without impacting network performance.
