Zyxel Networks has announced it has partnered with security specialist, McAfee to offer customers an integrated, one-box security solution designed specifically for small- to medium-sized businesses.
According to the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, more than 40% of cyberattacks are currently targeted at small businesses, driving the need for SMBs to find robust, easy-to-deploy and manage protection solutions that fit the size of their network. The integration of McAfee’s anti-malware solution into Zyxel’s high-end ATP firewall family will provide SMBs with best-of-breed malware detection, security performance and advanced web filtering within a single firewall device.
“Small businesses need cybersecurity support now more than ever. At McAfee, we’re keeping the world safe from cyberthreats so that customers can focus on running their business. We’re proud to partner with Zyxel to help better protect their customers’ confidential data,” says Javed Hasan, Global Head of Enterprise Product Strategy and Alliances at McAfee.
Growing ATP family stops zero-day attacks
Zyxel also announced the addition of the ZyWALL ATP100W and ATP700 to the SMB-focused Advanced Threat Protection Firewall Series. These all-in-one solutions integrate scalable, cloud-based sandboxing with multiple additional layers of security to detect and block known and unknown threats.
ZyWALL ATP firewalls using the ZLD 4.5 firmware release or later can run anti-malware scans in both Express and Stream modes concurrently. The Express mode leverages an ever-expanding AI-driven cloud database to provide an unprecedented level of threat intelligence, while the Stream mode uses a signature-based database to provide a granular and thorough deep local scan. The new hybrid mode combines the two functions to maximise security coverage with wide and deep security scans to protect the network from the inside-out and defend the business from rapidly evolving cyber-attacks.
“This is a challenging period for SMBs. In the past few months, many have moved to a working from home model to protect their staff. For most SMBs, having an up-to-date anti-malware solution is the most fundamental yet effective solution to protect their businesses from the latest cyberthreats. Our new family of ATP products provide SMBs with comprehensive and flexible security protection. During this challenging time, they can focus on running their business, safe in the knowledge that their network is secure, efficient and flexible,” comments Nathan Yen, AVP of Zyxel’s Gateway Business Unit.
The Zyxel ZyWALL series of Advanced Threat Protection Firewalls for small- and medium-businesses includes ATP100, ATP100W, ATP200, ATP500, ATP700 and ATP800. For more information, please visit https://www.zyxel.com/atp
