Next-Generation Technology Stops Spyware Better than Any Other Firewall
The power of Cymphonix's Spyware Control can be found in our patent-pending Cross Layer Intelligence engine (XLi™). Simply put, our XLi engine scans, identifies and controls data across 6 of the 7 layers of networking communications (OSI Model). So, in addition to scanning for URL threats, XLi enables users to recognize and stop threats in the form of file names, MD5 Sums, and ClassIDs - all without creating noticeable latency.
This unique capability creates extraordinary multi-level dynamic scanning, identification, and control - providing users with the best spyware, malware, and adware protection available. In fact, many satisfied customers have proven this by installing our solution behind other spyware firewalls - only to find that Cymphonix solutions captured dozens of threats that had passed through their current spyware firewall.
Identify Infected Users while Blocking Security Attacks
The incredible advantage of blocking spyware at the firewall is that infected clients can quickly be identified even while attacks are being blocked. After cleaning currently infected clients, Network Administrators enjoy the benefits of blocking spyware proactively rather than managing spyware on a client-by-client basis.
PiNG™ Dynamic Updates and Industry-Leading Partners Provide Cymphonix Customers with the Most Comprehensive Threat Recognition Available
To take advantage of XLi's powerful scanning capabilities Cymphonix Research team has compiled the the industry's best spyware referencing database through the PiNG Alliance. In addition to the Cymphonix Research team's robust spyware threat list, the PiNG alliance includes Sunbelt Software's CounterSpy which consists of multiple dynamic resources:
* CounterSpy LogoThreatNet™ - a worldwide network of hundreds of thousands of CounterSpy users who report on new spyware outbreaks to Sunbelt.
* Microsoft® - spyware definition updates from Microsoft.
* Sunbelt Spyware Research Team - Sunbelt's Industry-Leading Spyware Research Team actively researches new spyware outbreaks, creating and testing new spyware definitions on a constant basis.
Network Composer, Cymphonix's next-generation firewall, now provides more than 80,000 spyware signatures in its offering and is currently adding newly-identified threats at an eye-popping rate of more than 1,000 new signatures a week. As a point of comparison, Barracuda Network's spyware firewall contains just 1,800 total spyware threat signatures, and receives "energizer updates" of only about 30 additional signatures per week (data confirmed independently by former Barracuda resellers).
