Web Security products allow organizations to secure Web traffic effectively while still enabling the latest Web-based tools and applications. These products analyze Web traffic in real-time, instantly categorizing new sites and dynamic content, proactively discovering security risks, and blocking dangerous malware. They also protect against spyware, malicious mobile code, phishing attacks, bots, keylogger backchannel communications from reaching host servers and other threats. They also help in filtering and controlling the content that can be viewed on a network.
Messaging Security products filter spam and viruses in the cloud, providing bandwidth and administrative resource savings. They usually reside at the gateway to provide granular outbound email protection, allowing for finely tuned policies and an optional second layer for inbound filtering.
