New Kaspersky-powered TitanWALL security appliance rolls out in Malaysia
By Digital News Asia February 24, 2014
- Combines network security, antivirus and firewall within one appliance
- Comes with dual antivirus signature databases and dual antivirus engines
IT security solutions companies K Now Distribution Sdn Bhd and Tech Titan Sdn Bhd have rolled out TitanWALL, Kaspersky Lab’s appliance-based firewall safeguarding against malware and threats.
TitanWALL combines network security, antivirus and a firewall within one appliance – it comes with dual antivirus signature databases and dual antivirus engines powered by Kaspersky Lab and Tech Titan, the latter said in a statement.
TitanWALL offers ultra-high performance, deep packet inspection and can block the latest attack variances that include viruses, worms, spyware and many other malware types effectively, the company claimed.
Kaspersky Lab said it detects 315,000 new malicious files every day, versus 200,000 the year before. An average of 4.6 million attacks on users were repelled every day whenever users were online, and it claims to have neutralised close to 5.2 billion cyber-attacks on users’ devices in 2013.
With such increasing threats, small and medium businesses (SMBs) should evaluate their exposure to these risks and consider the effects of malware attacks on their business, Tech Titan said in its statement.
Malaysian SMBs need an affordable appliance-based firewall with antivirus capabilities to safeguard their data and their business, said Dobson Beh, country manager of K Now Distribution, the authorised distributor for TitanWALL.
“A significant percentage of SMBs in Malaysia are highly exposed to malware as many of their employees use their own devices – be it mobile phones, tablets or laptops – for work without any protection for the organisation’s data.
“This BYOD (bring your own device) movement can be dangerous for organisation that do not have proper protection, such as a superior firewall solution that has multidevice management and antivirus capabilities,” he added.
