Dynamic Link Analysis provides Next Generation protection against malware delivered through web links
Blue Coat Systems has implemented Dynamic Link Analysis in its WebPulse cloud-based community watch service to analyze and assess risk of dynamic web content.
According to the company, Dynamic Link Analysis incorporates the latest advances in protection against an expanding category of threats that relies upon dynamic web links to spread malware and malicious content.
Dynamic Link Analysis within the Blue Coat Web-Pulse service combines URL filtering and anti-malware techniques to protect users against web-based threats that utilize dynamic links, said Blue Coat Systems.
The service includes the following four components: cloud-connected community; real-time input; immediate threat assessment and cloud-based ratings updates.
Mikko Valimaki, chief scientist at Blue Coat Systems, said: The emergence of malware that preys upon people’s trust in legitimate websites and utilizes the web as a tool for spreading malicious content in a viral manner underscores the requirement for proactive layers of defense. WebPulse implements Dynamic Link Analysis to provide the real-time community watch environment with continuous inputs, assessments and cloud protection that businesses require to keep pace with today’s evolving threat landscape.
