SingTel has announced that it will be enhancing the SingNet eVolve and SingNet eLite corporate fibre broadband services with the SingTel Business Fibre Broadband Security Suite. This will provide SMEs in Singapore with online content filtering to protect their networks. SMEs can also subscribe to the Broadband Protect anti-virus and anti-spam service for added security.
The cloud-based SingTel Business Fibre Broadband Security Suite is unique in that it intercepts security threats and eliminates them in the Internet cloud even before they reach a company’s IT network. This is unlike conventional off-the-shelf security programmes which require users to download software or install filters on their computers. SME owners can choose from three pre-defined protection levels to prevent their employees from accessing harmful websites.
The security solution provides additional protection through the anti-virus and anti-spam value-added services. These bundled services detect and prevent malicious software from corrupting or deleting data and identify emails which are potential spam messages. Subscribers receive a monthly report which shows several metrics including the top blocked sites which employees have attempted to access.
The SingTel Business Fibre Broadband Security Suite is based on Fortinet’s technology. The leading network security vendor's flagship FortiGate security platforms host the full range of security functions, including anti-virus, anti-spam, web filtering, IPS, VPN and application firewall, and protects organisations against network, content and application-level threats.
