Email is not only a conduit of information flow - it can be the life's blood of business operations. Companies have an obligation to employees, shareholders and customers to protect that flow of business by whatever means necessary. Our solutions augment the existing communication defense arsenal by providing email outbreak protection against both known and unknown email based viruses. This added layer of security closes the window of vulnerability that stems from threats with no existing signature or patch. Avinti removes the opportunity that exists between the time an exploit is revealed and patched, and the time a hacker attacks the network. It protects against targeted attacks for which there may never be a pattern for protection. We're able to say that the Avinti iSolation Server is truly the first enterprise email security solution using virtual machine technology to test potentially threat-bearing messages in a monitored virtual replica of the target user's desktop prior to delivery.
Avinti employs the ability to stop something at the first instance and that's truly unique. Reports can be run, proof can be seen, management can be shown what's getting through and what it was trying to do within the virtual environment in a very detailed manner so you can breakdown the behavioral trace and it underscores the value of a layered security model because it can visually be identified.
What are Avinti's future plans? Any exciting new projects?
It is always dangerous to discuss future plans. The virtualization of this network edge component demonstrates a viable new architecture in security deployment. As the e-mail edge becomes more difficult to penetrate, based upon the deployment of this virtual-machine based security-criminals will turn to other avenues for penetration. As-such, it makes sense to anticipate the upcoming trends of attack, and ensure that appropriate protection is developed and deployed. The concept of virtual security will continue to grow and evolve, providing a new wave of protection previously unavailable.
