MXINSPECT Announces Hosted Prevention Solution That Makes Internet Browsing Safe
December 26, 2006 — The web is filled with information profiteers of all types, and the business of information theft has never been so good. Malware applications litter the internet to phish for data, spy on your behavior, and relay information about your every move. As long as there is money to be made, this is a problem that is here to stay. For some business owners, the cost of that problem is just too high.
|Prevention is the only true path to protection from outside threats. MXINSPECT offers preventative filtering of internet traffic before that traffic can affect the business|
Combating malware typically requires a heavy upfront investment in a software package. This is often circumvented by threats which have the capability of reinstalling themselves once removed by software. Beyond the cost to combat these threats, businesses bear the burden of hours of network downtime and loss of internet bandwidth.
MXINSPECT today announces a hosted prevention solution that makes internet browsing safe. The service, MXINSPECT Web Defense, filters internet traffic for threats and content so only what you desire from the web is what you receive.
MXINSPECT Web Defense also provides content filtering to protect business interests by limiting the sites that employees may visit. Employee productivity increases are seen not only in impeding the drain in resources caused by malware, but also by preventing staff from wasting work time browsing the internet for personal purposes. Web Defense extends the MXINSPECT portfolio of services which currently include SPAM and antivirus filtering of email traffic, to cover all web-based internet related traffic.
Their clients’ reaction to the new offering has been profound. One Channel Partner, eMazzanti Technologies, customer had this to say: “We had no idea what the problem was costing us until we found the right solution.”
A New York non-profit, after learning that 70% of the organization’s bandwidth was falling victim to spyware, said: “Prior to this service, we were unsure of the extent of the spyware impact. Now we wonder how we operated without the service. We have reports for user activity which show our outbound traffic has dropped off considerably now that our known malware and spyware issues have been stopped from broadcasting traffic.”
In the last two years alone some two hundred vendors of spyware removal tools have entered the market with various approaches to what is the “best way” to eliminate threats already present. But removal only goes so far. According to MXINSPECT President, Jennifer Shine, “Prevention is the only true path to protection from outside threats. MXINSPECT offers preventative filtering of internet traffic before that traffic can affect the business”. Users recognize increased speed in using the internet, significantly fewer desktop support incidents, and performance gains across the board.
