Kaspersky anti-virus engine added to ScanSafe’s managed solutions

Kaspersky Lab Anti-Virus solution is added to ScanSafe managed Web and instant messagingsecurity services. Kaspersky Lab’s solution will be used in ScanSafe’s Web Scanning, Spyware Screening and IM Control managed services.

“Our partnership with Kaspersky Lab reflects our commitment to providing customers with the highest level of protection from Web-based threats,” said Dan Nadir, vice president, product strategy, ScanSafe. “In order to fulfill this commitment, ScanSafe uses a multi-layered, defense-in-depth approach to Web security, leveraging the best available tools to keep our customers’ networks completely protected.”

In addition to Kaspersky Lab’s Kaspersky Anti-Virus engine, ScanSafe also leverages other industry-leading signature-based engines to work in tandem with Outbreak IntelligenceTM-ScanSafe’s own proactive heuristics technology that provides protection from inbound and outbound Web-based threats, including zero-hour threats-threats that appear before a signature is available. This is a critical capability, considering that on average 12 percent of all Web viruses blocked by ScanSafe fall into this zero-hour threat category.

As a fully managed service, ScanSafe provides multilayered protection from Web-based malware at the Internet level before it reaches the corporate network. ScanSafe eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming signature updates because it constantly updates its database of Web threats, delivering dynamic protection against both known and emerging threats.
