HSINCHU, Taiwan and SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ZyXEL Communications, a world-class networking company, has integrated Commtouch's® (NASDAQ: CTCH) cloud-based anti-spam and Web filtering solutions into its ZyWALL Unified Security Gateway product line, the two companies announced today.
ZyXEL's ZyWALL USG enables small and medium-sized businesses to secure their business networks. The addition of Commtouch's security services to the ZyXEL offering provides end customers with wider threat coverage and enhanced protection from continuously changing threats.
"ZyXEL is a leading provider of security products and solutions for small and medium sized businesses," said Mr. Alpha Chen, vice president, head of enterprise solution business unit at ZyXEL. "The inclusion of Commtouch's protection solutions in our offerings provides even more sophisticated threat coverage with superior performance, enabling us to offer more competitive products and solutions, with advanced features, to satisfy the needs of our customers."ZyXEL selected Commtouch's email security suite and GlobalView™ URL Filtering solutions to provide its customers with secure email and Internet browsing. The email security solution blocks unwanted email such as spam, malware and phishing, and reduces the quantity of messages passing through the system by deflecting undesirable traffic at the organization's perimeter. GlobalView URL Filtering protects users from browsing malicious Web sites that otherwise could infect visitors with malware in the form of drive-by downloads or steal users' private credentials. ZyXEL engineers measured increased threat detection rates and improved real-time response to new threats as a result of the implementation of Commtouch's solutions. The high performance of Commtouch's services, strict user data privacy protection and the alignment of corporate business goals of both companies were also key factors in ZyXEL selecting Commtouch. ZyXEL's adoption of a single provider for multiple security services has provided tighter integration and cross-enhanced protection between the different security services it offers, while enhancing resource management and improving the performance of its security devices.
