HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 6, 2011) - Network Box USA (www.networkboxusa.com), the American arm of worldwide managed security service provider Network Box Corp., announced today that the company's M-285 unified threat management (UTM) appliance detected 100% of malware in a test conducted by Tolly Enterprises, a leading global provider of third-party validation services for vendors of IT products, components and services.
Network Box had commissioned Tolly to evaluate the effectiveness of the M-285, which is aimed primarily at medium-sized organizations. Tolly used malware samples from WildList Organization International, augmented by additional samples from AV-Test, a global IT security testing and consultancy services provider; the extended WildList contained malicious files such as viruses, worms, rootkits and trojans in WIN32 program executable files. Engineers evaluated the detection rates across the HTTP, POP3 and SMTP protocols, and the M-285 was able to detect all the malware in the extended WildList across each of the protocols, which were run sequentially and tested separately.
"Although there are always new viruses and worms cropping up, the successful results of the Tolly test, using the extended WildList, are a good indication of the thorough, up-to-date protection that Network Box provides," said Pierluigi Stella, CTO of Network Box USA. "Testing any Network Box UTM would also have resulted in 100% malware detection, since all our appliances are essentially identical to the Tolly Certified M-285 and use the exact same software."
Network Box UTM appliances are sold through the reseller channel and remotely managed by Network Box USA. The devices weave together numerous applications -- firewall, intrusion prevention and detection, virtual private network, content filtering, anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-phishing, and anti-spyware -- into a single, sophisticated hybrid of hardware and software; they enable organizations to easily and cost-effectively combat hackers, worms, backdoors, and other online menaces.
