According to Computer Economics, viruses caused $13.2 billion in damage to organizations worldwide in 2001. Customers benefit from a tighter coupling between NetScreen’s integrated security solutions, which provide firewall, VPN traffic management, and denial of service attack protection features, and Trend Micro’s antivirus and malicious code protection software. This enables customers to enforce antivirus policies directly from the NetScreen firewall rulebase, avoid making changes to the network topography, and easily deploy the solution across the enterprise. As attacks and security threats become increasingly sophisticated, customers require security solutions that can interact with one another to ensure that these attacks can be repelled as quickly as possible.
NetScreen security devices, located at the perimeter and within an enterprise infrastructure, provide an ideal enforcement point to integrate security functions. By combining high-performance with very low latency, NetScreen devices are capable of enforcing the security decisions of expert intrusion detection systems (IDS) and antivirus systems in real time, creating a new level of content security; Trend Micro’s Content Scanning Protocol (CSP) enables high-performance communication/data transfer between the NetScreen firewall and InterScan VirusWall. The InterScan VirusWall 3.6 CSP Edition, and NetScreen integrated solution enables customers to combine point solutions into a unified security protection framework.
