StreamShield Networks, the leader in real-time internet content security, today announces availability of release 2.1 of its clean internet pipes technology enabling network operators and service providers to deliver the most advanced range of IP-based content security services within their networks. Additionally, StreamShield also announces that it has joined the Cisco Technology Developer Program as an internet content security participant and its CSG-3100 content security gateway has met the Cisco Technology Developer Program test criteria for interoperability with the Cisco Layer 3 routing and switching products.
The Cisco Technology Developer Program sets criteria for interoperability testing and helps leading product and services firms to deploy innovative business solutions. The program provides enterprise or service provider customers with information regarding Cisco Technology Developer Partner products and services that the Cisco Technology Developer Partner believes meet the program´s criteria for interoperability with Cisco networking technology.
StreamShield’s advanced solution enables service providers and network operators to incorporate clean internet pipes technologies into their IP networks to protect both their infrastructure and their subscribers from content-based threats such as viruses, malware, spyware, adware, unwanted content, etc. StreamShield’s silicon-based content security gateway, CSG-3100, fully integrates with the service provider’s existing switch, router and firewall infrastructure to extend protection up to layer 7.
