Malware & Zero-Day Virus
DeepNines Anti-malware and Zero-Day Virus Defense technology is critical for network protection with malware doubling in signatures year after year since the mid 2000's, including some recent reports claiming that the amount of malware on the Internet today may actually exceed the amount of legitimate content.  Malware is malicious software that is primarily located on the Web as the infection point.  Removing malware is difficult and costly, which is why the best tactic for Web security is preventing or anti malware before it enters the network.  Malware comes in various forms from viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware, most rootkits, crimeware and any form of software code that is designed to infect a computer for purposes of crime or chaos without the end-user's knowledge.  Further, malware is now also a dormant threat that is commonly exploiting blended threat tactics that infect computers in the network but lay dormant until a bot remotely controls the malware to activate the real purpose of the malicious code.  Anti malware protection at the Web gateway provides security for the entire network, but the anti-malware engine must utilize a robust system for identification and blocking of these prevalent threats to firewall the network from the Web threats.

DeepNines Malware Firewall prevents malicious software from entering the network.  By shielding the network from viruses, Trojans, rootkits, spyware, bots, phishing exploits, crimeware, and other malicious software, Malware Firewall provides more than just anti-virus protection.  Protection from malware is essential to network security, and the Malware Firewall provides real-time and dormant-code threat management at high-speed performance.
