Trend Micro releases new web gateway security solution

Trend Micro, a global cloud security provider, announced
the release of the company’s web gateway solution, which delivers greater
visibility and control over the growing use of cloud-based applications such as
instant messaging, peer-to-peer, video and audio applications, and web mail.

Trend Micro InterScan Web Security 5.5 provides superior
protection against Internet threats, while reducing costs through datacenter
consolidation by supporting bare-metal, VMware® Ready and Microsoft Hyper-V
virtual appliances.

It works alongside the Advanced Reporting and Management
module, a separate, but essential, component that provides centralized
real-time network traffic visibility, drill-down historical reporting, and
policy management.

“Employee-use of cloud-based Web 2.0 applications is
standard for many organizations and, as a result, it exposes their organization
to cybercriminals attempting to gain access to sensitive data,” said John
Maddison, GM of data center security, Trend Micro.

Application Control provides greater visibility into and control over an
organization’s Internet usage. It automates the discovery and bandwidth usage
of over 420 Internet-based protocols and the thousands of client applications
that leverage them.

Administrators can understand which users’ traffic needs
to be controlled per application type and then create rules to enforce those
policies. Unlike most web gateway products which can only apply policies to the
traffic they can proxy, InterScan Web Security provides total visibility across
all ports and many more protocols.

HTTP Inspection provides more granular control to protect
against emerging web threats by allowing administrators to identify behavior
and filter web traffic according to any characteristic of the HTTP protocol.

Administrators can easily capture sample traffic from
within the product and create custom filters to enforce any policy they might
