Ositis Announces eShield Platform

Until Now, You Couldn’t Get Antivirus, Antispam and Web Filtering All on One Appliance

Ositis’ eShield Network Security Appliance Saves Users From Buying, Installing and Supporting Multiple Network Appliances

PLEASANTON, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 2, 2003–Ositis, Inc., a leading developer of secure Internet sharing and security solutions for small through large-sized organizations today introduced the eShield platform. The eShield Network Security Appliance is the latest addition to the growing family of Ositis’s network hardware and software security applications.

eShield is a dedicated appliance that sits in front of a company’s network and after the firewall. The appliance acts as a network bridge scanning all network traffic — inbound and outbound and includes the first hardware virus protection applications with incoming and outgoing virus scanning on major protocols, including HTTP, FTP, SMTP, News, IMAP, Socks and POP3.

eShield allows you to have a single appliance that delivers multiple network security functions at high speed. eShield includes antivirus (AVStripper), web filtering (SiteStripper) and antispam. eShield requires no proxy or firewall configuration yet is the most powerful security device available for stopping viruses, malicious code, spam and objectionable Internet content at the gateway — before they can penetrate the network.

“eShield was designed to provide the medium to large network managers — typically in the 1,000 to 15,000 seat range — the solution to protect their network from viruses and malicious code while avoiding system latency,” said Vilis Ositis, CEO and founder of Ositis Software. “eShield allows you install less hardware because you are only buying one platform having a separate system for each network security function you want to add to your network.”

eShield also saves valuable IT staff resources because it eliminates management of three separate devices and consolidates support into a single support organization. “eShield installs as a network bridge and scans all passing traffic for viruses, spam and objectionable web content. Installation is a simple matter of inserting the z2000 between your firewall and your network,” according to Ositis. “eShield requires no end user configuration and integrates easily with existing firewalls and proxies.”

“We’ve integrated Best of Breed security solutions into eShield which allows users to choose the security vendor of their choice including: McAfee, Sophos, Panda or Trend Micro in the antivirus space as well as Secure Computing.”
