Avoiding 450,000 security threats per day harmoniously

Positive Technologies, a pioneer of the cyber security industry, has today announced the release of their new product PT MultiScanner™. The newly released product is unique, combining and coordinating multiple anti-virus (AV) systems including: Kaspersky Lab, Symantec, McAfee, ESET, Bitdefender and others to effortlessly offer more effective threat detection to enterprises whilst avoiding the need for multiple license agreements with each AV vendor.

Every day, in excess of 450,000 new information security threats are recorded worldwide but there are no antivirus (AV) solutions offering 100% protection. Organizations that choose to utilize multiple AV tools simultaneously to improve their protection face an additional administrative burden and possible clashes between competing AV systems. This new alternative, PT MultiScanner™ combines the antivirus definitions of solutions from such well-known and globally respected brands including: Kaspersky Lab, Symantec, McAfee, ESET, Bitdefender and others to offer simultaneous protection against the malware and advanced persistent threats that represent a daily threat to enterprises, IT integrators and other large organizations. It optimizes each AV solution to work in harmony with the others for the most effective level of overall threat detection and avoids the need for an enterprise to buy licenses separately from each AV vendor.

PT MultiScanner™ detects advanced persistent threats (APTs) as well as malware and works from inside your security perimeter to minimize the risk of data leakage. Its retrospective analysis function also simplifies incident investigation, helping you to trace malware that has already reached your network by the time AV providers update their definitions.

PT MultiScanner™ is deployed within the organizations own security perimeter and requires no integration with the existing infrastructure or transfer of files to external systems. With the solution being locally hosted you do not have to risk exposing your confidential data to the cloud.

“This product development has been driven by seeing the problems our customers are experiencing dealing with the complex security systems they employ to both protect their business and comply with new information security regulations”, explains Alex Mathews, Technical Manager (EMEA), “we are now offering a unique product and new standard in the security sector”.
