Updated Product Helps Companies Further Protect Themselves from Zero-Day Attacks

News Image

Global security firm, G DATA, has launched its version 14 business solution which now integrates Exploit Protection. With almost 3,000 software security holes discovered in the first half of 2015 alone, the need is clearly there for a tool that can quickly and effectively protect against these vulnerabilities.

The new technology reliably protects clients in the corporate network from security holes in installed programs. With the optional Network Monitoring module, G DATA is enhancing the functional scope of its business solutions. IT managers can use individually adjustable metrics to monitor the current status of hardware, software and the network at a glance.

The misuse of software security holes by so-called exploits is an effective method for cyber criminals to infect computers and networks with malware. Not every security hole is discovered and closed immediately, which leaves the attackers ample time to exploit them. With Exploit Protection, all current G DATA business solutions include a new technology that provides systematic, reliable protection against this dangerous attack vector. Exploit Protection does so by closing the holes in software until the provider publishes a security update, which can then be rolled out via G DATA Patch Management.

Preventing downtime with Network Monitoring

G DATA offers Network Monitoring as an optional module. Administrators can use it to monitor a wide range of devices and services, from printers to servers. Its customizable settings help prevent potential disruptions.

Central administration of Mac and Linux clients
The new Business Generation 14 now enables IT managers to use the G DATA Administrator to centrally manage Mac clients in the corporate network as well. Furthermore, the new security solutions support even more Linux distributions.

Effective protection against spam email
The G DATA Mail Security add-on module in Business Version 14 optionally offers centralized email protection with virus and spam filters for all mail servers, including plug-ins for MS Exchange 2007 to 2016 and support for Postfix and Sendmail on Linux servers. With the Web Security Gateway module, companies can enhance their Squid-based Web Gateway with comprehensive protection against viruses and phishing.
