By Carol Krol San Bruno, Calif.—E-mail security provider IronPort Systems has introduced Web reputation technology for its e-mail security hardware appliances. The new technology is designed to help companies protect networks from spam, viruses, phishing and spyware attacks. It uses 45 network parameters to evaluate a message’s context by analyzing its content and construction, the reputation of the sender and where it tries to send a user. “We’ve extended the notion of e-mail reputation to the Web,” said Tom Gillis, senior VP-worldwide marketing at IronPort Systems. He added the company will also launch a new hardware appliance focused on Web security later this month.
