Feature and Benefits for the CSC-SSM
|Antivirus||Award-winning antivirus technology shields internal network resources from virus attacks at the most effective point in your infrastructure, the Internet gateway. Cleaning e-mail and Internet web traffic at the perimeter helps ensures business continuity and eliminates the need for resource intensive malware infection clean-ups.|
|Anti-Spyware||Blocks spyware from entering the network through Internet web and e-mail traffic. Frees up IT support resources from costly spyware removal procedures and improves employee productivity by blocking spyware at the gateway.|
|Anti-Spam||Effectively blocks spam with extremely low false positives, helping to maintain the effectiveness of e-mail communications, so contact with customers, vendors, and partners continues uninterrupted and without distraction.|
|Anti-Phishing||Protection against spoofed identity and sourcing guards against phishing attacks thereby preventing employees from inadvertently disclosing company or personal details which can often lead to financial loss.|
|Automatic Updates from TrendLabs||Backed and supported by one of the largest teams of virus, spyware and spam experts in the industry, working 24×7 to ensure that your solution is providing the most up to date protection, automatically.|
|Central Administration||Easy “set-and-forget” administration through a remotely accessible Web-console and automated updates reduces deployment time and effort as well as recurring IT support costs.|
|Real-Time Protection for Web Access, Mail and File Transfers||Even if company e-mail is already protected, many employees will access their own private Webmail from company PCs or laptops introducing another entry point for Internet-borne threats. Employees may also directly download programs or files that may be contaminated. Real-time protection of all Web traffic at the Internet gateway greatly reduces this often-overlooked point of vulnerability.|
|Full URL Filtering Capability with Categories, Scheduling and Caching||URL filtering can be used to control employee Internet usage by blocking access to inappropriate or non-work-related websites, thereby improving employee productivity and limiting the risk of legal action being taken by employees exposed to offensive Web content.|
|E-Mail Content Filtering||E-mail filtering minimizes legal liability due to exposure to offensive material transferred by e-mail and enforces regulatory compliance, helping organizations meet the requirements of legislation such as Graham Leach Bliley and the Data Protection Act.|
