Mid enterprises looking for a solution to secure their web and email traffic need to look no further for complete content security. Modern web 2.0 and email threats are mitigated through hybrid in-the-cloud URL Filtering, Distributed Spam Analysis Anti-Spam using an in-the-cloud architecture, HTTP/HTTPS anti-malware/virus inspection, and Instant Messenger and Peer to Peer Application Control. Technology Partnerships with Kaspersky Lab™ and Commtouch™, combined with patent pending NETGEAR stream-scanning ensures that efficacy is not compromised in the name of throughput. With a variety of sizing, redundancy, and resiliency options, the award-winning STM series is the ideal solution for mid enterprises which have segregated content security and Firewall/VPN/Routing technology into distinct elements.
- 260 Mbps Mbps Average Anti-virus Throughput ¹
- 960,000 SMTP Throughput (emails/hour) ¹
- 4,000 Concurrent Scanned HTTP Connections
Enterprise-strength Spam, Virus, and Web Filter Security
The ProSecure STM series of Web and email security appliances combine best-of-breed security technologies and patent-pending Stream Scanning Technology to protect businesses against today’s Web and email threats. Viruses and spyware hosted on Web pages, email phishing attacks, spam, malware infected emails, and other threats are now all part of a regular repertoire of sophisticated blended attacks that businesses now face.
While other solutions significantly dilute the efficacy of their offering by either utilizing open source or cutting essential features and services from their enterprise products to cut costs, ProSecure has partnered with industry-leading Kaspersky Lab and Commtouch® to bring best-of-breed enterprise-strength Web and email security technologies to the STM platform.
Web and Email Security - Redefined
ProSecure STM Appliances combine performance with comprehensive security coverage. Patent-pending Stream Scanning Technology enables the use of an extensive virus and malware database while maintaining a high level of throughput and minimizing scanning-induced latency. The flexible modular software design architecture leverages patent-pending Stream Scanning Technology to scan files and data streams up to 5x faster than conventional methods.
The ProSecure STM employs millions of signatures to protect against known malware threats, and advanced behavioral zero-hour protection technology to proactively discover and block any suspected threats that have not yet been identified. The ProSecure STM utilizes a hybrid in-the-cloud Distributed Spam/Web Analysis architecture that shields networks from spam, phishing attacks, malicious Web sites, unwanted content, and other Web and email-borne threats. The STM’s application control feature allows businesses to enforce company network usage policies and preserve productivity by blocking access to public instant messaging and peer-to-peer applications.
With ProSecure STM, subscriptions are simple with no per-user licensing. ProSecure Web and Email subscriptions each contain comprehensive protection for an unlimited number of users.
Revolutionary Stream Scanning Platform
Given the high performance requirements of scanning latency sensitive Web traffic, incorporating enterprise-grade security software technologies into traditional content security platforms has been a very difficult task. That is why the ProSecure STM features patent-pending Stream Scanning Technology which analyzes data streams as they enter the network. The ProSecure Stream Scanning approach is many times faster than that of traditional batch-based scanning methods in which the entire file is buffered before it is scanned.
Because of its nature, traditional batch-based scanning methods introduce latency to network traffic. While latency is more tolerable for email traffic, for large amounts of HTTP Web traffic, such latency often slows Web browsing to a crawl. Content security solutions in the past have tried to overcome the latency issue by minimizing the malware signature set, scanning only a handful of file types, or by avoiding Web traffic scanning altogether. This approach exposes an entire vector of the network to malware-based attacks.
Simple Setup, Ease of Management
The ProSecure STM deploys in-line in a matter of minutes, anywhere in the network. It runs automatically and unobtrusively. There is no need to reconfigure the network, unlike traditional proxy-based solutions. Simply set and forget. Administration is performed through an intuitive Web-based interface. Set granular per user/group-based policies and alerts, check summary statistics and graphical reports, drill down to IP address-level data, send log data to third party syslog servers, and integrate with standard network management tools via SNMP.
For many administrators and IT personnel one of their biggest nightmares is the management of individual licenses or “seats”. Buying additional licenses when computers and personnel are added to the network is time consuming and costly. The ProSecure STM series offers Web and email protection subscriptions with no “per-user” licensing.
