Sunbelt signs licensing agreement with FaceTime

To integrate its anti-malware technology into FaceTime's Unified Security Gateway product

By CBR Staff Writer

Sunbelt Software has signed a licensing agreement with FaceTime Communications. Through the terms of the agreement, Sunbelt’s anti-malware technology and Threat Track data feeds have been licensed by FaceTime for integration with its Unified Security Gateway product.

As part of the integration, FaceTime will deploy its VIPRE technology into FaceTime’s appliance to augment the protection provided by FaceTime’s Security Labs and the FaceTime WebFilter.

According to Sunbelt, with the incorporation of its gateway anti-malware technology, FaceTime’s Unified Security Gateway delivers malware scanning at the network perimeter alongside web filtering. This is in addition to the application research provided by FaceTime’s Security Labs, which protects enterprises from the associated threats of Web 2.0 applications from instant messaging to P2P, Gaming, IPTV and social networking.

Reportedly, Sunbelt’s Threat Track provides up-to-date feeds, identifying and propagating the new malicious URLs and malware to researchers.

“The integration of our comprehensive perimeter anti-malware scanning engine provides FaceTime’s customers protection from the full range of threats that can be found in the Web 2.0 sphere.
