By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributor

Commtouch’s Recurrent Pattern Detection (RPD) anti-spam and GlobalView URL Filtering services will now be integrated into NETGEAR's ProSecure STM Series of Web and Email Threat Management Appliances for Small- to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs).

NETGEAR, Inc., is a worldwide provider of technologically innovative, branded networking solutions. The company's STM Series combines email and Web security, as well as zero-hour protection and policy enforcement, to deliver the first enterprise-class SMB security appliance that is easy to use and manage.
Commtouch provides proven messaging and Web security technology which leverages a cloud-based datacenter approach that automatically analyzes billions of Internet transactions in real-time to identify new email- and Web-based threats as they are initiated.
The incorporation of Commtouch’s technologies allows NETGEAR to deliver world class security technology to its SMB customers.
Jason Leung, NETGEAR’s senior product line manager for SMB security believes security solutions should be able to fully secure email and Web communication and appreciates Commtouch’ RPD and GlobalView email and Web filtering technology which gives their ProSecure STM Series the power to protect their SMB customers without adding undue management complexity.
Commtouch was recently recognized by Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) for its superior protection of email inboxes around the globe from unwanted and malicious email.
Noting that small and medium businesses have unique security issues that must be addressed by proactive solutions, Avner Amram, Commtouch executive vice president and general manager, Americas said that the integration coupled with Commtouch’s financial strength and outstanding support, will outfit NETGEAR and its clients with the optimal email and Web security solutions for protection in every country and every language.
NETGEAR also signed an agreement with Kaspersky Lab, a developer of Internet threat management solutions that protect against all forms of malicious software. Under the agreement, Kaspersky Lab's (News - Alert) award-winning anti-malware and antivirus technologies will be integrated into NETGEAR's new ProSecure STM Series of Web and Email Threat Management Appliances for Small- to Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs).
