Norman Data Defense Systems has released version 3.7 of its anti-malware gateway. Norman Network Protection (NNP) is designed to be implemented at the periphery, or placed between network nodes to block insider threats. As stated in the company’s press release, Norman Network Protection uses leading malware detection and analysis technology to provide a real-time, front-end protection solution for the entire LAN and production environment.
“Norman Network Protection now includes Norman Endpoint Manager, a security operations center, which supports an unlimited number of appliances in the network. Additionally, enhancements in protocol support enable filtering of BitTorrent, the global standard for delivering files over the Internet and MSN messenger.
“NNP runs on Linux to maximize throughput and availability and is available as a software solution or as an anti-malware appliance, based on Dell OEM servers.”
