Perimeter 81 Adds Malware Protection to its Security Stack

With continued transition to cloud services to support remote work, the threat of malware grows, expanding each company’s attack surface. The first half of 2022 saw 2.8 billion malware attacks in which more than 270,000 “never-seen-before” malware variants were used, according to Sonicware’s mid-year report, up 45 percent from last year.

Perimeter 81, a growing cloud-based secured network leader, has added malware protection to strengthen its security offering and protect its customers from internet-borne risks.

Perimeter 81’s malware protection requires no set up by administrators and protects against downloaded or web-embedded malware. It is activated when a user signs into the agent and applies an extra level of protection without impacting the user experience. Perimeter 81’s malware protection has the advantage of protecting users when connected to the corporate network as well as when accessing the internet.

Clients can use malware protection to secure their users from any internet-based threat like viruses, trojans, worms, rootkits, keyloggers, phishing, adware, spyware, and advanced persistent threats that can damage the organization via ransomware, extortion, data breaches and more.

Perimeter 81’s malware protection employs a combination of updated signature-based detection and advanced machine learning-based capabilities for identifying and blocking complex polymorphic and zero-day attacks. Combined with existing web filtering, Perimeter 81 offers stronger and more robust protection for users of all businesses and the corporate network from the perils of the Internet.
