zvelo web filtering technology continues strong growth and reaches milestone
Greenwood Village, Colo. – October 5, 2010 – zvelo, Inc., a leader in secure web filtering, announced today it has achieved 60 SiteFilter OEM partners. These OEM partners include end-point security and anti-virus vendors, UTM and network security vendors, ISPs, MSSPs and mobile phone providers, among others.
zvelo’s SiteFilter solution combines superior coverage of the ActiveWeb (the areas of the web users are actively visiting), excellent accuracy, and zero-hour malicious website detection and protection, providing partners with strong security and policy control features that are integrated directly into their own products. Additionally, SiteFilter’s exclusive category mapping capability allows OEM partners to eliminate policy and reporting changes when converting from an existing web filtering supplier to the SiteFilter offering, making for a seamless and transparent migration for end users.
The computer security war is increasingly being fought through the web browser, with malicious URLs being served up through email or web searches on popular terms. Viruses exploit browsers and third party plugins to get into systems, making every computer on a network a potential foothold for hackers. zvelo’s SiteFilter addresses these problems by using the power of cloud computing combined with its Distributed Intelligence Architecture™ (update 09/02/11 – now zveloNET®) to scrutinize websites for threats and deliver real-time protection to end-users.
“The rapid growth in OEM partners is further evidence of the superiority of zvelo’s SiteFilter offering,” said Jeff Finn, zvelo’s chief executive officer. “We continue to win business based on a combination of our outstanding coverage of the ActiveWeb, our high accuracy rates, and strong and swift detection of new malicious sites. In addition, the recent announcement of the newest SiteFilter, with its innovative mapping capability, has attracted partners seeking a seamless transition from legacy URL filtering only offerings to the secure web filtering and Web 2.0 capabilities of SiteFilter.”
SiteFilter can be quickly and easily deployed in a wide range of OEM environments, including mobile service providers, endpoint security products, UTM or other gateway appliances, ISPs and MSSPs, SaaS offerings, parental control solutions, and more.
