MONETT, Mo. (10/9/12)--ProfitStars, a division of Jack Henry & Associates, introduced a cloud-based layer of malware protection.
Gladiator Advanced Malware Protection is capable of blocking sophisticated malware threats, including downloads, unsafe website redirects, command and control activity, and phishing links, ProfitStars said.
In conjunction with Gladiator's Security Research department and industry partners in domain name security (DNS) and threat intelligence, Advanced Malware Protection gives financial institutions the ability to pass all DNS requests through Gladiator's secure cloud-based DNS system. Requests are analyzed in real-time for fraud patterns, malware and data-stealing risks before connections are allowed to send or receive data.
Advanced Malware Protection is fully integrated with the Gladiator Security Research department's threat intelligence feeds and its Internet Threat Watch List (ITWL) database. More than 4.4 million hostile hosts are flagged monthly by the ITWL, with more than 600,000 confirmed malicious connections reviewed and blocked.
