PeerApp Partners With McAfee to Provide Carrier-Grade Content Security for Broadband Services

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) - PeerApp today announced that it has partnered with McAfee, Inc. to enable mobile and fixed line network operators to categorize and control Internet content delivery at multi-Gbps scale. The joint solution allows operators to improve their subscribers' experience, strengthen security, and meet regulatory requirements. The partnership combines the McAfee SmartFilter product with PeerApp's carrier-grade UltraBand media caching software.

McAfee is the world's largest dedicated security technology company, and PeerApp is the global leader in intelligent media caching systems. The UltraBand™ 5000 Media Cache is the only multi-service, multi-protocol caching solution for video and download services, which intelligently optimizes multimedia-content delivery to serve consumers without overtaxing network bandwidth or infrastructure. By integrating comprehensive content security from McAfee, the UltraBand 5000 enables network operators to control content delivery cost-effectively regardless of the scale of their network.

The UltraBand 5000 allows network operators to set-up policies for classes of content, identified by explicit URL listing or by using URL categorization services provided by the McAfee SmartFilter engine. The UltraBand 5000 automatically enforces these policies as part of caching and content delivery while enhancing the overall user experience.

"PeerApp is the first and only supplier to deliver carrier-grade content control at multi-Gbps scale," said PeerApp CEO Robert Mayer. "Policies can be configured to meet specific network operator preferences or to meet local regulatory requirements. By embedding McAfee SmartFilter technology, we are enabling our service provider customers to better serve their subscribers, reduce Web security risks, and comply with local laws."

"PeerApp is a valued OEM partner for the McAfee SmartFilter solution that gives service providers a compelling solution to categorize, manage, control, and accelerate Internet content delivery," said Thomas Moore, vice president of worldwide OEM sales for McAfee. "By combining the McAfee SmartFilter technology with PeerApp intelligent media caching, service providers stand to benefit strongly from a single solution that can reduce overall operating costs and provide subscribers with a vastly improved Internet experience."
