SurfControl Shows Off New Phising Defenses

February 15, 2005
February 15, 2005 – (HOSTSEARCH.COM) – SurfControl will demonstrate how the company is driving significant change to the Internet filtering market at the RSA Conference 2005. SurfControl will show off its phishing protection for the SurfControl Web, E-Mail and Mobile Filters.

The company will also announce it has teamed with Celestix Networks, Inc. and Microsoft to bring complete Internet protection to businesses on the Celestix MSA integrated security appliance. This solution featuring Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server (ISA) 2004 and SurfControl Web Filter, will be on display at the Microsoft Partner Pavilion.

As an illustration of the rate at which malware and other dangerous content is growing on the Internet, the SurfControl Content Database -- the heart of the company's Internet filtering solutions -- surpassed nine million total URLs -- up from eight million only three months ago. The SurfControl Content Database includes 45 URL categories in 70 languages. More than 33 percent of the content tracked and filtered by SurfControl is international.

"Companies have long known that in order to protect themselves from Internet threats, they must protect their Web and their e-mail systems," said Steve Purdham, chief executive officer of SurfControl. "What most companies today fail to realize however is that those defense systems must work in unison to be truly effective. SurfControl is redefining Web and e-mail filtering through a unified solution that ensures customers receive the strongest and most consistent protection across their enterprise."

Businesses wrestle to come to terms with attacks with which they are already familiar, such as traditional e-mail spam, illicit Web sites, spyware and phishing, new variations of existing attacks are already appearing. In just the last few months "spear phishing" and "pharming," have emerged. SurfControl's Internet Threat Defense system provides customers with the most comprehensive protection against known, unknown, targeted and even internal Internet threats. This layered approach bolsters existing protection versus malware and creates a more flexible defense.
