Zvelo and TeamF1Join Hands to Outfit Networking Devices with Enhanced Web Protection

To track website IT security issues, TeamF1 (News - Alert), Inc. has partnered with zvelo, Inc., a company specializing in website categorization and URL database solutions, to offer zero-hour malicious website detection and protection to further secure business and residential networks.

TeamF1 is working in embedded networking and security software solutions for wired and wireless applications.

According to a press release, this partnership offers flexible and policy-based web access control options for SMB networks and tighter parental control options for home networks resulting in safer overall Internet connectivity.

zvelo and TeamF1 will offer a joint solution that includes extensive coverage of the active websites visited by users with a strong policy management framework and optimized gateway-based caching and network stack integration that offers real-time categorization and detection of new malicious websites, including in-depth, granular categorization of social-networking, blogging and other sites with diverse content.

Mukesh Lulla, president of TeamF1, Inc., said, “With malware threats and so-called zero-hour attacks spreading rapidly when new vulnerabilities are discovered and exploited, even AV-protected business and home networks can fall victim to malicious web content before security holes are patched or AV signatures updated, Networks today need multiple layers of comprehensive protection against such threats and our partnership with zvelo allows us to offer iron-clad content filtering protection to network users in addition to our active gateway, end-point and cloud based anti-malware detection and intrusion prevention technologies.”

It is real-time content filtering and control for network users and it offers protection from infected URLs exploiting recently discovered browser.

Jeff Finn, CEO of zvelo said that simply blocking access to inappropriate pornography, adult and other types of websites is no longer a satisfactory level of protection.

In other company news, TMCnet reported that zvelo, Inc. has reached 80 OEMs for its zveloDB(TM) offering.
