Share Article

Recent Microsoft Internet Explorer vulnerabilities leave user desktops susceptible to software that performs massive ad and spam attacks on remote systems. igxglobal offers a unique solution that protects organizations from these and other attacks.

igxglobal a provider of security solutions since 1997 with headquarters in Rocky Hill, Connecticut today announced protection from the recent Microsoft Internet Explorer vulnerability. igxglobal is making this protection available to organizations around the world at no cost.

Early in the morning of Thursday June 10, 2004, igxglobal outlined a protection plan for the recent vulnerability in Internet Explorer for its Security Anywhere clients. Given the lack of industry options, the decision was made to make the protection plan available to the industry at large. "Security Anywhere is available to organizations with users at their headquarters, home or hotel room anywhere in the world", said Thomas Duffy igxglobal's president. "We chose to offer this protection at no charge until Microsoft has the opportunity to respond to this issue as a contribution to the industry", continued Duffy.

igxglobal's unique offering affords organizations protection from virus and worms, as well as delivering content and application based controls without the need to load software. "The flexibility and availability of Security Anywhere allows the deep and wide protection organizations need for all their users local or remote", commented Babak Pasdar, igxglobal Founder and Chief Technology and Information Security Officer. "So often we see notebook users drag their muddy feet across the organizational white carpet when they get infected and plug into the corporate LAN. Along with the virus protection, igxglobal can immediately craft protections from vulnerabilities such as the one in IE and apply it for users around the world."

The Security Anywhere service protects users from Virus, Trojans and Worms, delivers application layer security, content controls, pop-up blocking and can be turned on in less than one minute per system without loading software. Security Anywhere support all major operating systems including Windows, MAC, Linux, and UNIX.

igxglobal offers the Security Anywhere service at no charge to any organization concerned about the lack of protection from the Microsoft Internet Explorer vulnerabilities until patches are released.
