Commtouch launches three-tiered security technology

Share this article:

Commtouch has announced the launch of a unified engine to combine messaging and web security and anti-virus.

Combining Commtouch's GlobalView Web Security, Zero-Hour Virus Outbreak Protection and Command anti-virus, the latter of which was acquired from Authentium in September 2010, the company claimed that the three security technologies cross-enhance each other by sharing intelligence about internet threats.

In an instance where a phishing website threat is detected, the malicious URL is shared with Commtouch anti-spam so that emails containing the phishing link can be blocked. This data sharing is enabled by Commtouch's cloud-based GlobalView Network, which collects and analyses billions of internet transactions in real-time.

Amir Lev, CTO of Commtouch, said: “With a combined ‘triple-play' solution, each technology leverages the other to create an even stronger barrier against ever-increasing blended threats. From a business perspective, the single interface also reduces short and long-term integration and operational costs. This new engine presents a unified interface across our product lines, providing a thoroughly integrated, simplified and cost-effective combination of technologies for our partners.”
