Commtouch announced its new unified Internet security solution, which brings together messaging security, Web security and antivirus into a single engine.
The unified engine can be integrated into the products of security and networking vendors and into service providersí infrastructure. The three security technologies cross-enhance each other by sharing intelligence about Internet threats, providing better protection overall.
There are several instances in which this information exchange would take place. For example, if a phishing web site threat is detected, the malicious URL is shared with Commtouch Anti-Spam so that emails containing the phishing link can be blocked. This data-sharing is enabled by Commtouchís cloud-based GlobalView Network, which collects and analyzes billions of Internet transactions in real-time.
An integrated detection engine reduces integration time of all three services since there is a unified interface, since there is only one vendor to manage, one invoice to process, one address for support ,and one company to interface with for training, roadmap discussions, or any type of technical or operational updates
The three solutions within the unified engine - GlobalView Web Security, Anti-Spam, Command Antivirus, and Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection - are available individually as well.
