As we continue to shift to cloud services to support remote work, the threat of malware continues to grow and each company’s attack surface expands. According to Sonicware’s interim report, there were 2.8 billion malware attacks in the first half of 2022 involving more than 270,000 “never-before-seen” malware variants, a 45% increase from last year.
Perimeter 81 has added malware protection to strengthen its security offering and better protect customers from Internet-based risks.
Perimeter 81’s anti-malware features require no administrator setup and protect against downloaded or web-embedded malware. It is activated when a user logs in to the agent and automatically applies an additional level of protection without impacting the user experience. Perimeter 81’s anti-malware features have the advantage of protecting users not only when connected to corporate networks, but also when directly accessing the Internet.
Clients use malware protection to protect against viruses, trojans, worms, rootkits, keyloggers, phishing, adware, spyware and ransomware, extortion, data breaches and more.
Perimeter 81’s anti-malware features use a combination of continuously updated signature-based detection and advanced machine learning-based capabilities to identify and block complex polymorphic and zero-day attacks. Combined with traditional web filtering, Perimeter 81 now further protects all business users and corporate networks from the dangers of the Internet.
“Malware protection is becoming increasingly important to help organizations avoid threats like HavanaCrypt,” said Amit Bareket, CEO of Perimeter 81. It is a cloud-based service that requires no hardware.”
Malware protection complements Perimeter 81’s integrated network security offerings, which include Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA), Firewall as a Service (FWaaS), web filtering on a single platform with a single agent and unified management. By integrating these services, administrators can simplify tasks and provide complete network security with fewer tools.
