(Gawkwire.com) – Optenet, a pioneer and global leader of enabling SaaS offerings and delivering “on-premise” security solutions, today announced its global strategic partnership with IT security and data protection firm Sophos.
 
The strategic partnership sees Sophos’ first-class anti-virus scanning functionality fully integrated into Optenet’s flagship Web and Email security offerings including WebSecure (protection against malware and access to illegal or inappropriate web pages); MailSecure (spam detection and prevention solution); and NetSecure, which integrates all Optenet’s security protections into a single solution (anti-spam, web filtering, anti-virus, anti-phishing, anti-spyware, peer-to-peer and instant messaging).
 
SophosLabs – the blended intelligence behind all Sophos security technologies, including the malware scanning engine within Optenet email and web solutions – analyses 50,000 new malware samples every day. 
 
As today’s threats are more sophisticated, targeted, and fast-moving, it’s critical to stop malware before a specific detection update can be released.  Sophos Genotype® malware detection technology proactively blocks families of malware threats and analyses the behaviour of the code before it executes, therefore protecting users from 90 percent of unknown threats.
 
“The web has become the biggest breeding ground for malware – every few seconds, legitimate websites are being compromised by cybercriminals looking to host their wares,” said Francisco Martin Abreu, President and CEO at Optenet. “The Internet is an essential means for businesses to research, gather, and promote information via blogs and social networking sites, so it’s imperative that end-users are protected at all times.  The integration with Sophos’s proactive malware scanning capabilities complements Optenet’s web security offerings which provide existing and future customers the highest level of protection without impeding their end-users’ browsing experience and productivity.”
 
“From the early stages of discussions, it was evident to both Sophos and Optenet that there was great potential to integrate our technologies,” said Michael Rogers, Vice President of Global Alliance and OEM at Sophos.  “Optenet has extensive experience and knowledge working with ISPs and telecom operators and Sophos has long developed proactive security solutions built specifically for the enterprise.  Merging Optenet’s security capabilities with our unique malware protection was a natural fit.”
