Optenet Launches New Content Security Solutions For Enterprises

Backed by proprietary threat intelligence network, NetSecure, MailSecure, WebSecure, and WebFilter provide comprehensive protection against the newest Web 2.0 threats
MIAMI " March 5, 2009 " Optenet, a global IT security company and provider of high-performance content security solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Optenet NetSecureTM, Optenet MailSecureTM, Optenet WebSecureTM and Optenet WebFilterTM " four new content security products that offer dynamic proactive protection from the latest and most aggressive Web 2.0 threats. Flexible offerings of Web filtering, antivirus, antispam, antiphishing, antispyware, malware, peer-to-peer and instant messaging protection are designed to fit enterprises' budget and security requirements.

Traditional static approaches to content analysis can leave organizations vulnerable to the dynamic virus and malware threats associated with Web 2.0 technologies. To fully protect themselves, enterprises require the latest industry intelligence in a highly integrated and cost-effective offering to combat zero day vulnerabilities, blended threats and the next generation of attacks.

"Enterprises today are facing an unprecedented and rapidly evolving threat landscape," said Joel Silberman, vice president of Optenet. "As a result, security providers need to arm enterprises with solutions that can adapt and react as quickly as Web 2.0 threats require. NetSecure, MailSecure, WebSecure and WebFilter offer enterprises the most dynamic and complete protection available in flexible delivery options that allow organizations to choose the protection that is right for their needs and budget without compromising on effectiveness."

In conjunction with the launch of its new security solutions for enterprises, Optenet is introducing its automated network for classifying and identifying Web and email content. Optenet's Global Intelligence Acquisition Network for Threats (Optenet GIANTTM) is a collective intelligence network that studies Internet traffic and pushes updates out to every Optenet installation. As a result, organizations can ensure that new threats are accurately blocked " ultimately enabling organizations to rapidly respond to potential attacks before they propagate.

"To maintain real-time performance and keep up with the dynamic nature of the Internet, it is critical to have an automated mechanism for content analysis and classification. Manual intervention and static lists are no longer adequate," continued Silberman. "GIANT's unique access to a full range of threat data from a variety of resources around the world enables Optenet to provide superior intelligence and dynamic protection to our customers."

Based on the same architecture that has established Optenet as a leader in providing content security solutions to service providers around the world, the company's new security solutions empower enterprises with the real-time performance and positive end user experience that is demanded by service providers. The backbone of this solution is Carrier Class Optenet Transparent Traffic Analyzer (CCOTTATM), which provides real-time processing and coordination of all network traffic passing through the Optenet solution. CCOTTA enables Optenet to provide real-time performance without requiring expensive hardware. CCOTTA also provides enterprise IT managers with the peace of mind of knowing they will not be in a constant refresh cycle of purchasing faster, more expensive appliances as bandwidth or user requirements increase.
