Secure Web (Webwasher)
Security challenges in a Web 2.0 world
Organizations can do more over the Web today than ever before. As use of the Web continues to grow and evolve with adoption of Web 2.0 applications, virus outbreaks and other forms of Web-borne threats known as "malware" continue to grow as well. Are you adequately protected?
Widely deployed reactive security solutions based on a negative security model of blocking "known bad" behavior and content (such as signature-based anti-virus and
category-only URL filtering), while providing vital security, were not designed to combat
malicious software code or cleverly blended threats, hidden inside seemingly good HTTP or HTTPS traffic. Furthermore, today's malware attacks are rarely Web wide, rather they are targeted at individual organizations. While organizations need the Web, they need to be protected from Web-related attacks targeted at them.
The adoption of Web 2.0 applications by the enterprise requires a security solution for Web 2.0. Secure Computing has taken a fresh look at today's Web security needs and has solved this growing problem: Secure Web (Webwasher) line of security appliances.

Secure Web (Webwasher) Solutions
Secure Web delivers a comprehensive security solution for all aspects of Web 2.0 traffic. When a user is requesting content from a Web 2.0 application, he is implicitly asking for active content to be delivered to, and executed by, his computer. Furthermore, the same user is required to provide content to the Web 2.0 application, making the security concerns both inbound and outbound in nature.
Secure Web (Webwasher) provides immediate protection for user-initiated Web traffic against threats such as malware hidden in blended content or hidden in encrypted SSL traffic. Secure Web analyzes the intent of all content entering the network – even new web pages before they have content and before they are categorized. It also protects organizations from outbound threats such as potential loss of confidential information that can leak out on all key Web protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP).
