DeepNines Anti-malware and Zero-Day Virus Defense technology is
critical for network protection with malware doubling in signatures
year after year since the mid 2000's, including some recent reports
claiming that the amount of malware on the Internet today may actually
exceed the amount of legitimate content. Malware is malicious
software that is primarily located on the Web as the infection point.
Removing malware is difficult and costly, which is why the best tactic
for Web security is preventing or anti malware before it enters the
network. Malware comes in various forms from viruses, Trojans,
worms, spyware, most rootkits, crimeware and any form of software code
that is designed to infect a computer for purposes of crime or chaos
without the end-user's knowledge. Further, malware is now also
a dormant threat that is commonly exploiting blended threat tactics
that infect computers in the network but lay dormant until a bot remotely
controls the malware to activate the real purpose of the malicious code.
Anti malware protection at the Web gateway provides security for the
entire network, but the anti-malware engine must utilize a robust system
for identification and blocking of these prevalent threats to firewall
the network from the Web threats.
DeepNines Malware Firewall prevents malicious software from entering
the network. By shielding the network from viruses, Trojans, rootkits,
spyware, bots, phishing exploits, crimeware, and other malicious software,
Malware Firewall provides more than just anti-virus protection.
