Crossbeam Systems Certifies Trend Micro Interscan™ Web Security Suite On Its Next Generation Security Platform


Combined Solution Enables Large Enterprises to Secure Internet Gateways with Carrier-Class Performance and Reliability

BOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Crossbeam Systems, Inc., the leading provider of next-generation security platforms for high-performance networks, today announced that it has certified Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Suite 3.1 (IWSS) via the iBeam ISV Certification Program to run on Crossbeam’s X-Series Next Generation Security Platform.

Crossbeam’s iBeam ISV Certification Program is the industry’s first testing environment that recreates the layered, core security architectures of large enterprise and service provider networks using carrier-class equipment in a highly flexible, interconnected test bed. iBeam assures Crossbeam customers that the best-of-breed security applications they want to use have been thoroughly tested and proven to work together in the complex, multi-vendor network environments that mimic their own.

Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Suite 3.1 dynamically defends against Web-based attacks with multi-layer, multi-threat protection at the Internet gateway, leveraging both local and in-the-cloud security information to protect HTTP and FTP traffic. Award-winning antivirus, anti-spyware, and a new Web Reputation feature collectively work to block access to malicious sites, block spyware and phishing traffic, and detect spyware activity on clients to trigger agent-less cleanup. The Advanced edition provides flexible policy-based control over Java applets and Active X controls, as well as URL filtering.

“Trend Micro is pleased to continue our strong partnership with Crossbeam with the certification of InterScan Web Security Suite 3.1,” said Thomas Miller, general manager of the enterprise business unit for Trend Micro. “The iBeam certification means that that our enterprise customers can feel confident their IWSS solution will perform compatibly on the X-Series to protect their networks from mixed-threat attacks at the Internet gateway.”

Crossbeam’s X-Series is a scalable security platform that virtualizes delivery of best-of-breed security applications. Crossbeam’s customer base is comprised of large enterprises and service providers whose demands for security create growing appliance sprawl and performance issues—key drivers for security virtualization and use of Crossbeam’s platform. Crossbeam’s Next Generation Security Platform enables its users to collapse entire security infrastructure segments onto a single device and centralize management, while maintaining carrier-class availability and reliability. This provides customers with unparalleled flexibility, scalability and built-in redundancy to intelligently secure traffic as business and network demands change, without sacrificing performance.

“The iBeam certification process helps assure our enterprise and carrier customers that Trend Micro’s IWSS will perform compatibly on Crossbeam’s Next Generation Security Platform,” said Jim Freeze, chief marketing officer for Crossbeam. “Trend Micro’s InterScan Web Security Suite will protect customers from an expanding range of threats that silently endanger business operations, personal information and property. Crossbeam’s X-Series will enable them to do so while meeting the scalability and reliability requirements of high-performance networks.”
