iSheriff Announces New Cloud Security for Web & Email


Orange, California, USA (April 27, 2010) – Internet cloud security vendor iSheriff Ltd, today announced the launch of its new Email Security and Web Security services. iSheriff says its new services can be used separately but are designed to work seamlessly as a single Internet security solution with unified management and reporting.

SaaS, or Security as a Service, is an increasingly popular method for deploying network email and URL filtering, anti-spam and anti-malware technologies. SaaS offers an alternative means of deployment over traditional platforms such as software and appliances which are normally installed and managed within the network. With SaaS, the technologies are deployed outside of an organization and are hosted and managed by the vendor up in the cloud.

“Our new email and Web security services enable clients to quickly and easily apply Web 2.0 protection for their organization without significant cost, training or ongoing administration,” said Oscar Marquez, iSheriff CEO.

“The Web 2.0 environment is getting more dangerous for businesses instead of getting safer. This risk is driving the need for all companies that utilize the Web for business to secure their connections and protect against malicious threats. SaaS is an exciting, effective and straightforward means of enabling that protection for any kind of business; large or small,” continued Marquez.

By most measures, Internet security seems to be worsening. According to iSheriff, spam rates have increased by more than 60% in the year to April 2010 putting current spam levels as high as they have ever been. Rates of malware infection are also increasing as hackers utilize Web 2.0 exploits and botnets to routinely infect legitimate websites.

“The key change that Web 2.0 has forced on security technologies is the need for real-time content analysis and the dynamic identification of threats. With the growth of Web content thanks to sites like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, security technologies can no longer take a patch approach to security. It needs to be able to recognize the characteristics of malware or malicious scripts and respond on the fly to block that content and protect the user,” said Marquez.
