BitDefender for HTTP Proxy offers SMB’s a “First Look” at New Malware Protection Technology for High Volume HTTP Network Traffic

BitDefender has announced that its HTTP Proxy for Linux is available for beta testing. Details can be obtained from http://beta.bitdefender.com.

Incentives include an Apple iPod Touch to the most active registered beta tester. The second place beta tester will receive a one-year license for a BitDefender Business Solution for up to 35 users and the third place tester will receive a one-year license for a BitDefender desktop solution – BitDefender Total Security,
BitDefender Internet Security or BitDefender Antivirus.

BitDefender for HTTP Proxy beta offers a number of advanced features enabling users to extend the security posture within a network environment, including:

- Real-Time Scanning of Internet Traffic: BitDefender for HTTP Proxy proactively identifies and blocks malicious HTTP-based malware threats.
- Enhanced Performance: BitDefender for HTTP Proxy beta uses BitDefender’s certified antivirus engines, which use less resources, provides better detection rates and increases performance.
- Transparent Mode: BitDefender for HTTP Proxy beta has the ability to work in transparent mode or in conjunction with a HTTP proxy such as Squid.

When placed in front of a HTTP proxy, BitDefender for HTTP Proxy acts as a bridge between the user and the proxy.
- Multiple HTTP filters: BitDefender for HTTP Proxy beta provides users with many HTTP filtering options, including a content type and method filter, URL filter, traffic control size filter and a header filter.
- Command Line Interpreter (CLI): BitDefender for HTTP Proxy beta uses a powerful and easy to use command line interpreter, which has an auto-complete function for all parameter levels.
- Other Improvements include: a Radmin integration Web interface, group security policies, user notification and enhanced reporting.

Commenting on the beta release, Vince Hwang, BitDefender’s global director of product management said. "BitDefender uses beta testing as the last in a series of steps to ensure our customers receive the best possible protection against all types of malware and e-threats.”
