FrontBridge Technologies is to incorporate Kaspersky Labs anti-virus technology into its outsourced e-mail security service.
Effective immediately, enterprises that use FrontBridges managed e-mail security service can have their incoming and outgoing mail scanned by Kasperskys antivirus engine to catch malicious code before it can make its way to users inboxes, according to FrontBridge officials.
Kaspersky Labs technology is based on fifteen years of experience protecting users against viruses, Trojan horses and worms, officials say, and is known for the speedy release of new virus signatures to quickly catch malicious code before it can do harm. FrontBridges service will scan for Kaspersky virus updates every ten minutes, officials say.
Kasperskys technology joins the existing anti-virus engines that are already a part of FrontBridges service, which include products from Trend Micro, Sophos, and Symantec. FrontBridge provides its 3,700 customers with multiple anti-virus engines to ensure a high level of protection, officials say. The company also provides its own Virus Hold technology, which analyses content of e-mail messages to identify and quarantine possible viruses before anti-virus companies release signatures for them.
FrontBridges Total Message Management service protects companies e-mail and instant messaging traffic from spam, viruses, and other malware and also provides compliance, disaster recovery and encryption, officials say.
