Malware Infection Prevention
Stop malware from ever reaching the customer’s front door
Malware saps productivity as enterprises and subscribers spend countless hours and dollars dealing with the threat. Much of the cost burden is carried by businesses that spend enormous amounts on IT security to prevent or remove infections, and the communications service providers that bear the cost of transporting bad packets.
For the residential subscriber, the only protection from malware threats has been traditional anti-virus software for their devices. IT security experts manage a wide range of solutions to protect their private networks, including intrusion detection and prevention solutions, firewalls, unified threat management systems, and security information and event management solutions. All of these solutions are designed to detect and block threats as they arrive at the boundary between the public Internet and a private network, or well after they’ve installed themselves and begun to do damage.
It’s time for a new approach—give your residential and business customers additional peace-of-mind with a network-based secure pipes solution that prevents malware infections from Sandvine. Sandvine’s malware infection prevention capabilities complement existing endpoint and private network security solutions by automatically detecting malware download and infection attempts in real-time, and before infection can take place. Upon detecting threatening browsing activity, including both solicited and unsolicited malicious software downloads, Sandvine can proactively notify subscribers that they are at risk and/or block the malicious software from traversing the network.
