Engate Technology, a provider of network profiling technology and proactive botnet, phish, virus and email security offerings, has announced integration of its security software suite with IBM Lotus Foundations Start line of software appliances for small and medium-sized businesses.
According to Engate, the Linux-based IBM offering provides collaboration tools such as email, file sharing and remote access. It also provides automated network security features, data protection, backup and recovery. With Engate, Lotus Foundations Start will offer a security suite that protects SMBs from email-borne threats.
Engate said that its security suite employs reputation network profiling, source verification, and anti-forgery techniques to identify and block email-borne botnet attacks at the connection level.
The company claims that it offers value to security software, appliance, secure web gateway, unified threat management, intrusion prevention, firewall and router partners in ways such as enhancing third party threat scoring systems with an extra layer of threat intelligence; improve connection-level security and efficiency of third party email security filters; and augmenting multi-layer security strategy with proactive protection from known and unknown threats.
