Unlike desktop anti-malware solutions we adopt a 'prevention is better than cure' approach, The Web Malware Scanning service eliminates all types of harmful Web-borne malware including viruses, spyware, adware and phishing attacks before they can enter and infect your network. Increasing browser vulnerabilities, 'zero-day' threats and the insertion of malicious code on legitimate sites has made the need for real-time malware scanning greater than ever. Our service delivers true defense-in-depth security through a combination of behavioral analysis, leading third-party anti-virus engines and proprietary heuristics. All Web requests and content is scanned in real-time, rather than solely relying on static URL lists, providing you with dynamic, real time and multi-layered protection.
The problem is that Web browsing has become the favourite target of malicious code writers seeking to compromise your network. The number of browser vulnerabilities continues to rise, fuelling zero-day exploits which can infect systems before patches or signatures are available.
Malicious code writers are now increasingly focused on gaining financial advantage. This has been most evident in the recent rise of spyware and adware programs. Malware exploits come in a wide variety of forms from programs that steal confidential information and passwords, through keyloggers and even nuisance advertising software.
By the time most administrators realize they have a problem the damage is already done - with high cost of remediation, the loss of employee confidence in your systems, loss of productivity and the creation of unnecessary network traffic and system instability.
