Advanced Threat Protection
Mailprotector Web Security integrates multiple layers of advanced threat protection.
- Web Reputation: The Dynamic Response Classifier engine analyzes response traffic based on HTTP headers, content filtering & link analysis. The engine operates in real time as part of the proxy, & our system dynamically classifies Web sites on the fly to make fast, accurate decisions about the security of those sites.
- Script-Attack Prevention: Our Threat Analyzer engine emulates the browser & performs multiple security checks to determine what exactly a specific application is trying to do. We are able to block malicious scripts before they enter your network.
- Anti-Malware: Object-based malware detection uses string scanning & advanced heuristic technology to block unknown Web-based viruses & spyware before they can gain access to your enterprise network.
- Anti-Virus: Signature-based anti-virus protects against previously identified viruses. The Mailprotector Web Security service integrates industry-leading anti-virus signatures, updated hourly, to provide a rapid response to new known security threats.
