-- IronPort’s Threat Operations Center reported today that it in the past 45 days it has blocked 20 virus outbreaks – all of them quarantined before major anti-virus vendors released a signature.
-- IronPort Virus Outbreak Filters™ respond much faster than traditional anti-virus technology – from 2-64 hours in advance of the first anti-virus vendors. IronPort Virus Outbreak Filters average 13 hours of added protection during the window of high vulnerability, which occurs between the time a virus is first detected and anti-virus signatures are released.
-- A typical virus outbreak averages $300 per desktop in IT clean-up costs alone.
-- IronPort® has begun publicly posting information where anyone can see the latest outbreaks and IronPort Virus Outbreak Filters’ response times (relative to the largest anti-virus vendors). To view the 20 most recent major outbreaks, see http://www.ironport.com/toc/ .
-- IronPort customers, prospects, media and the general public can register to receive email alerts at the first sign of an outbreak. Registration is available at http://www.ironport.com/outbreak_alerts/ .
