M86 SWG Deployment Options, Including Appliance, Hybrid Cloud and Now Virtual Appliance, Showcased at RSA 2011 in San Francisco

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - RSA Conference® 2011 - Moscone Center - Booth #1825 -- M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, has announced a virtual appliance version of their award-winning Secure Web Gateway (SWG), providing more options for organizations to deploy M86's industry leading real-time malware detection as an appliance, hybrid cloud service, and now virtual appliance. The new virtual appliance gives organizations the flexibility to deploy the SWG on their own hardware of choice and in smaller environments.

In addition, the new release, M86 Secure Web Gateway 10.1, features an advancement in M86's Real-Time Code Analysis (RTCA) anti-malware technology, which provides the industry's best malware detection against Web-based threats. These enhancements increase visibility into malicious code and correlate the individual Web page elements to detect and protect against dynamic threats and cross-component attacks and provide the industry's most accurate malware detection. 

"The enhancements we have made to our Real Time Code Analysis represent the most accurate malicious code detection and malware protection, even on the most complex dynamic and Web 2.0-based threats," says Werner Thalmeier, vice president of product management, M86 Security. "Just as exciting is M86's ability to offer our industry-leading Web security in a virtual appliance version of our Secure Web Gateway, which meets a real market need for flexible deployment of Web security."

The virtual appliance version of the Secure Web Gateway utilizes VMware to virtualize the Secure Web Gateway from the underlying hardware, giving users the ability to deploy on their own preferred hardware. Many organizations are already moving towards server consolidation using virtualization. This new virtual appliance option gives organizations the same benefits of saving on hardware costs, using their preferred hardware vendor, and the flexibility to deploy the Secure Web Gateway where their needs dictate. With this new virtual appliance option, M86 Security now offers the widest range of Secure Web Gateway deployments in the industry, including appliance, hybrid cloud, and virtual appliance options.

"We have been partnering with M86 for six years and our customers are impressed with the functionality and flexibility that the M86 Secure Web Gateway provides. The M86 SWG 10.1 virtual appliance option is exactly what our customers need," says Brij Patel, CEO, FortNET Security, recent recipient of the M86 Business Partner of the Year award presented at the 2011 M86 Partner Conference. "Strategically, this new deployment option strengthens our secure Web gateway practice, provides additional value to our current customers and brings new enterprise opportunities for our growing business."

The M86 Secure Web Gateway 10.1 will be available through authorized channel partners and distributors in April 2011. M86 will be showcasing the Secure Web Gateway, at the RSA conference in San Francisco, February 14-18.
