ZyXEL anti-virus blocks the latest threats, providing auto updating first line of defense against network virus outbreaks. Unlike firewalls, which look outwardly for intrusions, IDP not only evaluates a suspected external intrusion and signals an alarm but also evaluates threats from within the system. It proactively examines network communications, identifies signatures of common computer attacks, and triggers an alarm to alert network operators of the threat. ZyXEL IDP also pre-emptively terminates connections when threats are identified. It can stop instant messaging programs that allow employees to waste time chatting online. Also, peer-to-peer blocking allows businesses, including hospitality venues, to block bit torrent and illegal downloads.
ZyXEL IDP can provide comprehensive and customizable reports. Flexible, customizable service options can be implemented to accommodate specific customer requirements.
