1 August 2011 - Premier managed security service provider Network Box, has enhanced their Z-Scan zero-day anti-virus system, so it can now target spam as well. The same multi-award-winning zero-day anti-malware technology is now helping in the never ending fight against spam.

This new Z-Scan powered anti-spam engine brings the total number of anti-spam engines used by Network Box to 25, and the number of anti-spam signatures to over 19.6 million.

Z-SCAN zero-day protection
Z-Scan for anti-spam is an adaptation of Network Box's multi-award winning zero day anti-virus solution. Utilizing state-of-the-art in-the-cloud technology, Z-Scan can react to zero day malware up to 4,200 times faster than traditional anti-virus systems. By adapting the same system to the fight against spam, Network Box is responding to zero-day outbreaks of certain types of spam in just seconds as well.

The Z-Scan system operates by continually analysing all the threat information obtained in real time from more than 200,000 traps. These Z-Scan traps include spam-traps, virus traps, in-house submissions, customer submissions, mail statistics, http statistics, and suspect samples. The network of Z-Scan traps works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Network Box’s Z-Scan anti-malware technology won the 2011 Hong Kong Awards for Industries, Technological Achievement Grand Award, in recognition of its technological excellence.

The Z-Scan engines work in conjunction with Network Box’s traditional anti-virus / anti-spam technologies, and multi-award winning automatic PUSH update system, to provide the fastest protection against new threats available on the market. On the internet, out of date, often means out of luck.

In addition to Z-Scan, Network Box’s Unified Threat Management services also include Firewall, VPN, IDP, Anti-Malware, Anti-Spam, Content Filtering, Data Leakage Protection, Organizational Policy Management, Vulnerability Scanning, Enhancement, and Network Box’s award-winning real-time PUSH update technology. ISO 27001 Certified 24x7 monitoring, and expert remote management, are also included to protect against both known and unknown cyber threats.
