ZyXEL offers security licensing freebie

Alex Scroxton
SME and consumer networking specialist ZyXEL is to offer a free IDP licence to small business customers buying a Content Filter licence for any of its Unified Security Gateway products until the end of August.

The extra licensing capability will enable end-users to take advantage of deep packet inspection and granular control of network security, giving them visibility and control of employee web usage and allowing them to fight back against unwittingly downloaded malware, said ZyXEL.

The filter service, provided by technology partner Blue Coat, is designed to prevent access to web pages that have malicious code embedded and screen other potentially damaging content.

ZyXEL said that businesses are still finding it difficult to get to grips with malware threats, adding that the multitude of connected devices meant "more pressure is being placed upon businesses to stop internal users surfing potentially dangerous sites".
