Snipe's NetGuard NBAD appliance integrates Kaspersky Lab's antivirus technology with Snipe Networks' advanced malicious behavior detection

Snipe Networks, a leading provider of user-centric behavioral anomaly detection and mitigation (NBAD) solutions and Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management solutions, announced the licensing of Kaspersky Lab's antivirus technology for Snipe Networks' NetGuard NBAD appliance. Snipe's NetGuard customers will now have Kaspersky Lab's award winning antivirus protection built directly into their appliances, eliminating the need to install additional boxes to scan network traffic against malicious content. This new functionality will increase the breadth of NetGuard's overall user-centric network anomaly behavior detection system.

“We are pleased to partner with Kaspersky Lab to provide our customers with this best-of-breed virus protection technology,” said Peter Yong, CEO and Founder of Snipe Networks. “Kaspersky® Anti-Virus enhances our NetGuard solution to precisely identify viruses and other malware in email. This is a huge benefit to our customers who want greater insight and the ability to mitigate malicious acts on their network.”

With Snipe NetGuard, CFOs and Compliance Officers are able to rely on an inside view of user behavior. The Snipe NetGuard with built-in antivirus detection from Kaspersky Lab provides IT staff with greater visibility into what precisely is happening on their networks.

“Snipe Networks' NBAD solution is a new and exciting network security offering and will greatly contribute to the existing roster of Kaspersky Anti-Virus-enabled third party security solutions now available,” said Kaspersky Lab Business Development Director Vitaly Bezrodnykh. “Snipe NetGuard will now offer even greater accuracy and a stronger defense against the rapidly increasing and changing spectrum of malicious content with the inclusion of Kaspersky Lab's precise malware protection and market leading response time to malware outbreaks.”

Snipe NetGuard with the new antivirus technology from Kaspersky Lab is available now.
