CP Secure and Kaspersky Lab announced today that they have formed a strategic alliance to add Kaspersky Anti-Virus scan engine to the CP Secure Content Security Gateway real-time anti-malware appliances. The CSG now uses dual scan engines and stream-based scanning technology to provide customers with the most comprehensive and reliable gateway anti-malware scanning solution on the market today.
CP Secure’s CSG appliances now employ dual scan engines from CP Secure and Kaspersky. By adding Kaspersky’s industry-leading scan engine to CP Secure’s ICSA Labs-certified scan engine, the CSG provides organizations with the most comprehensive malware coverage available today.
With Kaspersky Anti-Virus integrated, the CSG’s malware coverage has been expanded to include many instances of malware, ranging from viruses to worms and from spyware to adware, that other scan engines do not detect. The CSG’s dual CP Secure-Kaspersky scan engines also utilize heuristic scanning and false alarm detection, ensuring that both known and unknown malware are detected reliably.
Kaspersky is internationally renowned for delivering unsurpassed malware protection through technical excellence and highly responsive support. According to extensive third party tests, the Kaspersky Anti-Virus scan engine consistently has the highest detection rates for known and unknown spyware and viruses. It is also the only product to receive malware pattern updates every hour and is supported by a global malware research organization that responds to new threats within two hours, by far the fastest response time of any anti-virus or anti-spyware vendor.
