News Release - Engate Launches In-The-Cloud Email Security Enabling Secure Web and Email Gateway Vendors to Achieve 99% Edge Protection

 

Next Generation botnet, phish and email security solution empowers OEM partners to deliver significant network bandwidth and data-center consolidation cost savings.

 

Reno, NV – June 28, 2010 — Engate Technology Corporation, leaders in next generation reputation network profiling technology and proactive botnet, phish, virus and email security solutions, today announced the latest version of GlobalRules™ network profiling technology. The new solution  empowers secure web/email vendors, intrusion prevention, unified threat management, firewall and router OEM partners to deliver a unique hybrid SaaS email and botnet security solution that achieves 99% proactive in-the-cloud protection. By blocking email-borne threats in-the-cloud and outside the network with superior accuracy, Engate enables OEM partners to greatly reduce the amount of email and bandwidth that must be processed at the gateway, thereby improving the efficiency of on-premise mail processing and ensuring greater protection through multiple layers of security.

 

Engate makes the power of its patented network profiling connection management technology available to OEM vendors that use reputation and on-premise solutions by providing a first line of in-the-cloud defense against malicious email connections. Engate employs next generation network profiling, source verification, and anti-forgery techniques to identify and block email-borne botnet, phish, spam, malware and blended web/email attacks at the connection level -- before they have a chance to compromise IT resources, invade privacy, degrade network performance, and waste user productivity.

 

Engate’s in-the-cloud security solution for OEMs builds upon Engate’s patented network profiling technology and industry leading expertise in reputation SaaS and hosted security. Engate’s hybrid deployment model allows OEM partners to achieve more thorough in-the-cloud protection while meeting a wider range of security and performance requirements than is possible in a reputation and on-premise deployment model. By preemptively stopping 99% of email-borne threats at the connection-level, Engate helps OEM partners to improve the efficiency of on-network processing and deliver significant network bandwidth and data-center consolidation cost savings to the enterprise.

 

"Email remains one of the most widely-used attack vectors against enterprise users. With 90 percent of all email being malicious and unwanted, Engate‘s in-the-cloud protection enables secure web and email gateway, IPS and UTM partners to enhance their security portfolio by reducing the burden of what is processed, filtered, and archived on-premise,” said Wil Cochran, CEO, Engate Technology.

 

In-the-Cloud Network Profiling for Secure Web and Email Gateway Partners

With more than eight years of operational experience collecting and analyzing data on global networks, Engate‘s reputation network profiling technology empowers strategic OEM partners to take advantage of the reputation of every ’good and bad‘ IP in an entire network. By profiling whole networks beyond infected hosts, Engate has built a repository of intelligence on potential and unknown hosts that may become infected. This unique intelligence on unknown threats is a critical component to enhance an OEM partner‘s security portfolio today -- as well as in the future – particularly as unknown threats continue to rise due to the growth of botnets.

 

Engate delivers incremental value to secure email gateway, secure web gateway, unified threat management, intrusion prevention, firewall, and router partners in the following ways:

 

(1) Enhance 3rd party threat scoring systems with an extra layer of threat intelligence proven to achieve an additional 15-20% unique catches on top of existing content scanning, Real-time Blacklists (RBL) and reputation technologies.

(2) Improve connection-level security and the efficiency of 3rd party email security filters by reducing over 99% of unwanted traffic and malicious payloads from reaching the gateway.

(3) Augment multi-layer security strategy with proactive protection from known and unknown threats. Engate’s unique network profiling functionality gives OEM partners preemptive in-the-cloud defense against email-borne botnets, phish, spam, viruses and blended web/email threats.
