Internet Gateway Security. Simplified.

Internet convergence is here. Nowhere is that more evident than at the network gateway, where the Web provides email access and mini Web sites arrive in e-mail. Most organizations have security products to handle each, separately, meaning different developers, different management tools and different reporting functionality. That worked fine when there were "Web problems" and "e-mail problems;" However these have combined to become larger, more serious gateway problems. M86 Security develops award-winning Web and e-mail security technology—used by more than 21,000 organizations and 60 million users in 96 countries—designed with the understanding that Web and e-mail risks share common roots and that blended threats have become the norm.

Preemptive Technology

M86 Security delivers patented technology that doesn’t just protect against all kinds of malware — it protects in real time. Our secure Web gateway (SWG) actually detects and deactivates dynamically obfuscated code on legitimate Web sites, on the fly. Our secure e-mail gateway (SEG) goes beyond the protection offered by signature-based malware scanners, utilizing behavioral analysis that isolates suspect messages in the cloud and observes the behavior of potential blended threats, reviewing the active content and even activating embedded URLs. Because these technologies don’t rely on signatures, they provide a critical layer for catching and neutralizing previously unknown exploits.

Common Policy Engine

Developing our own technology allows us to build products based on a common policy engine. This provides consistent and uniform functionality, fast deployment and update activation, and ease-of-use through centralized reporting and administration. The common policy engine also facilitates multi-layered, multi-platform security deployment, resulting in products that are designed to work together from the cloud to the USB port.

Platform of Choice

There are limitless network configurations between the cloud and the desktop (or laptop, in many cases). That’s why M86 Security focuses on delivering exceptional performance no matter the platform: software, hardware or SaaS. The network shouldn’t have to fit the solution; the solution should be able to fit the network.

M86 Security Internet Security Solutions

Scalable and Flexible

M86 Security solutions provide full feature sets, robust performance, minimal network impact, dependable accuracy and unmatched scalability. And, whether scalability means adding 10 new users or 100,000, we have the proven products that can handle it. Growth is good; it’s better when you know your Web and e-mail security can keep up.

Staying Up-To-Date in a Zero Day Environment

M86 Security Labs help detect current and emerging threats before they reach your network. Security analysts constantly monitor and respond to Internet security threats by maintaining update feeds for the M86 Security product line and posting alerts and information to the M86 Security Lab’ Web site. They analyze spam, phishing browser vulnerabilities, Bot networks and numerous Internet security trends, providing automated updates to M86 Security customers. M86 Labs also provides "zero day" security protection against new e-mail and virus exploits.

TRACEnet, an aggregated intelligence offering from M86 SecurityLabs, is a network designed to correlate data taken from spam analysis, URL library data, customer feedback and Internet research, maximizing the value of this combined threat information for M86 Security’s Email and Web security products. Other unique threat technology developed through M86 Security Labs:

  • SpamCensor
  • NDRCensor
  • CountryCensor
  • Numerous application pattern matching databases




The M86 Security URL database is built from the ground up, utilizing the most advanced search tools and employing Internet analysts and content verifiers, who review, analyze and categorize websites and signatures/patterns. It’s widely regarded as the most complete and accurate filtering database ever compiled.

Discover How Simple It Can Be to Work With One Company

M86 Security gives organizations the advantage of needing only one source for Web and email security, dramatically improving cost of ownership, efficiency, effectiveness, and ease-of-use. This also allows us to use threat information gained from research in one area and then provide extended protection in the other. We invite you to learn more and call for a personal demonstration.
