High-performance Protection at the Network Edge — What, Why and How

With more demands being put on lightweight network-edge hardware to provide security and connectivity, combining simplified malware detection with URI filtering can offer excellent proactive protection without overburdening the hardware or the administrator.

Learn more about the complex threats facing network-edge hardware and best practices to combat them:

1. Malware filtering needs to take place on the lightweight device

For maximum economy and efficiency, malware filtering needs to take place on the lightweight device, ruling out the proxying method.

2. Scanning engine must be lightweight and capable of processing large amounts of data

To maintain the required throughput level, the scanning engine must be lightweight and capable of processing large amounts of data with limited resources of memory or CPU.

3. Large amounts of detection data should not be stored on the device

To avoid firmware updating requirements, improvements to the engine logic must be applied live and remotely, leaving the hard-coded components integrated into the device firmware untouched.

4. Filter by URI, not by file

Minimize latency and added traffic by avoiding complex remote lookups of each and every file.
