The Mi5 Networks Webgate is a line of appliances that neutralise malware in web traffic, control web use, and detect/shutdown botnet activity inside an organisation’s network.
Built on Mi5’s proprietary S2 Streaming Engine, Webgate inspects and filters
bidirectional web traffic as well as internal network communications on all ports and protocols without imposing user discernible slowdowns associated with proxy-based products.
Mi5 Networks has a unique approach for tackling threats, said Tom Piotrowski, managing director of Unixpac.
“Webgate combines Mi5 developed network behaviour heuristics with signaturebased malware detection data from leading providers including IBM, Sophos, and Sunbelt,” he said.
It also dispatches a cleanup agent named, SpyWash to the infected hosts, said Piotrowski.
“The appointment comes as the result of Mi5 Networks' recently announced Webgate Channel Partner Program. The program is designed to attract Best-of-Class regional distributors and VARs and provide their customers with a complete URL filtering, Web Malware, and Botnet protection solution for the same price as their URL filtering renewal budget,” he said.
