Existinggateway defenses are proving to beinadequate against a variety of Web-basedmalware, leaving corporate networksexposed to the inherent danger posed bythese threats. According to industry estimates,approximately 75 percent of corporate PCsare infected with spyware, yet less than10 percent of corporations have deployedperimeter malware defenses. The speed,variety and maliciousness of Web-basedmalware attacks highlight the importanceof a robust, secure platform to protect theenterprise network perimeter from suchthreats.Existing gateway defensesare proving to be inadequate against a variety ofWeb-based malware. Onlythe IronPor t S-Series Websecurity appliance providesa single platform solutionto enable the industr y’smost power ful protectionand control.In addition to the security risks introducedby Web-based malware and spyware, Webtraffic also exposes an organization tocompliance and productivity risks introducedby inappropriate usage of the Web within anorganization.The IronPort S-Series Web Security Applianceis the industry’s first and only Web securityappliance to combine traditional URLfiltering, reputation filtering and malwarefiltering on a single platform to addressthese risks. By combining these innovativetechnologies, the IronPort S-Series helpsorganizations address the growing challengesof both securing and controlling Web traffic.Customers enjoy low Total Cost ofOwnership (TCO), as these powerfulapplications are integrated and managed ona single appliance.

This provides a powerfulWeb security platform, optimized for performance and efficacy.A fast Web proxy provides control overall Web traffic and allows for deep contentanalysis, which is critical to accurately detectdevious and rapidly mutating Web-basedmalware. The industry’s first implementationof reputation-based caching enables fastdelivery of safe objects and content to theend-user. Powered by AsyncOS , IronPort’sproprietary operating system, the Webproxy easily ensures high performance andthroughput for even the largest of networks.An integrated Layer 4 (L4) Traffic Monitorscans all ports at wire speed, detecting andblocking spyware “phone-home” activity. Bytracking all 65,535 network ports, the L4Traffic Monitor effectively stops malwarethat attempts to bypass Port 80 and alsoprevents rogue P2P- and IRC-related activity.IronPort’s DVS Engine employs sophisticatedobject parsing and vectoring techniques,along with stream scanning and verdictcaching, resulting in up to ten times thescanning throughput of first-generationsolutions.pa ge M ulti-layer, Multi-vendorDEFENSE-IN-DEPTHIronPort URL Filters offer the broadestreach and the highest accuracy rate in controlling Web content. These filters compareusers’ Web traffic requests against administrator-set policies for 52 pre-defined (and anunlimited number of custom) categories, easily addressing acceptable use policy concerns.With a database that contains more than 20million sites (corresponding to over 3 billionwebpages) and global coverage across 70languages and 200 countries, IronPort URLFilters offer industry-leading coverage andaccuracy against Web traffic requests.The industry’s first Web reputation filtersprovide a powerful outer layer of defense.Leveraging SenderBase , IronPort WebReputation Filters analyze over 50different Web traffic and network-relatedparameters to accurately evaluate a URL’strustworthiness. Sophisticated securitymodeling techniques are used to individuallyweigh each parameter and generate a singlescore on a scale of -10 to 10. Administratorconfigured policies are dynamically applied,based on reputation scores.The industry-leading IronPort Anti-MalwareSystem leverages the IronPort DVS engineand multiple verdict engines (the first fromWebroot), to provide best-of-breed protection against the widest variety of Web-basedthreats. These threats can range fromadware, browser hijackers, phishing andpharming attacks to more malicious threatssuch as rootkits, Trojans, worms, systemmonitors and keyloggers.

IronPort S-Series Web Security AppliancesS u mm a r ypa ge T he Ultimate W E B Security SystemThe challenges of securing and controlling enterprise Web traffic is continually growing andchanging. The security risk is real, with Web-based malware a rapidly growing threat thatis responsible for significant corporate downtime, productivity losses and major strains onIT resources. Enterprises need control to understand when, where and how their employeesare using the Web. Additionally, an enterprise runs the risk of violating compliance and dataprivacy regulations if their networks become compromised. The legal exposure as a result ofthese violations comes at a significant cost. Malware infections also risk exposing an organization’s business-critical data and intellectual property assets.The best place to control and protect against these risks posed by Web traffic is right at thegateway. Combining Web traffic policies with deep application content inspection, througha Web proxy and Layer 4 Traffic Monitor, allows enterprises to ensure breadth of coveragewithin their networks. IronPort Web Reputation Filters and multiple malware signaturesfrom Webroot, integrated within IronPort’s DVS Engine and IronPort URL Filters, provideindustry-leading accuracy against suspicious Web traffic.
