Calyptix Protects Customers From Trojan

Calyptix has successfully protected its customers from a new email virus widely known as the Storm Trojan, without reliance on static signatures

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Calyptix Security has successfully protected its customers from a new email virus widely known as the Storm Trojan, without reliance on static signatures.

Calyptix Security utilizes DyVax™, the company’s patent-pending signature-less inspection engine, exclusively packaged with Calyptix Security’s AccessEnforcer™ brand product line. Using the most recent version of its DyVax software, version 1.3, released on January 9, 2007, Calyptix Security was immediately able to identify and quarantine all variants of the virus so that no damage could be done to the user’s workstation or the larger network.

Trend Micro reports capturing variants of the Storm Trojan as early as January 17, 2007. Initial signature solutions were first made available by leading anti-virus vendors beginning January 18, 2007. Subsequently, those vendors have continued to update their signatures upon discovery of new variants. Some customers of leading anti-virus vendors did not receive updated signatures until as late as January 22, 2007.
