SurfControl Tightens Security With Product Updates

To help protect customers from emerging Internet threats, including spyware, malicious downloads, blended threats, and threats posed by mobile computing, SurfControl said it has made three major enhancements to the company's product line.

The company said its three updated products, SurfControl Web Filter 5.0, SurfControl Instant Message Filter 2.5 and SurfControl Mobile Filter, enhance an organization's ability to safeguard employee productivity, enhance network security and performance, and limit legal liability by stopping unwanted content in the workplace. Together, the products protect against risks to the network posed by Web-based, mobile, peer-to-peer and instant messaging services and applications.

"Internet threats are becoming more sophisticated each day, and organizations need a comprehensive defense to mitigate risks to the corporate network," said Jim Murphy, SurfControl's director of product marketing. "As IT managers continue to face new vulnerabilities from a constantly evolving Internet, these new tools will help them protect against Internet-based risks, while easing administration."
