Describes new malware solutions designed to be much more proactive and effective in protecting an organization's inbound and outbound traffic.
As use of the Web continues to grow, virus outbreaks and other forms of Web-borne threats known as 'malware' continue to grow as well. Security systems such as traditional firewall or anti-virus, while providing vital security, were not designed to combat software targeted at individual organizations or cleverly hidden inside seemingly harmless Web access protocols.
Malware is designed to attack specific businesses/systems instead of causing general harm to the public Internet. Organizations need a comprehensive solution that goes beyond desktop or gateway anti-virus protections that rely solely on signatures of known threats, and they need to be protected from known and unknown threats and all the varieties and forms that sophisticated malware takes.
