Netgear® STM Email/Web Scanner
The ProSecure Web/Email Security Threat Management Appliance is a plug-and-play device
that can be installed and configured within minutes.
It blocks web-based and email-based malware at line speed.
We believe the STM is the best protection money can buy. It is an appliance-based, Web and e-mail security solution that protects the network perimeter against Web-borne threats from spyware, viruses, e-mail, and blended threats. Best deployed at the gateway, it serves as the network’s first line of defense
against all types of threats.
The STM complements firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS)/
Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), dedicated Intranet security products, and endpoint anti-virus
and anti-spyware software.
The ProSecure Web/Email Security Threat Management Appliance is powered by patent-pending Stream Scanning
technology. It is backed by one of the most comprehensive malware databases in the industry.
The STM can detect and stop all known spyware and viruses at the gateway, preventing them from
reaching your desktops and servers, where cleanup would be much more difficult.
In addition to scanning HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP traffic, the STM protects
networks against spam phishing attacks and unwanted Web use.
What Can You Do With an STM?
- Scan network traffic for malware. Using the patent-pending Stream Scanning technology,
you can configure the STM to scan HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, SMTP, POP3, and IMAP protocols.
Unlike traditional batch-based scan engines that need to cache the entire file before they can
scan, this scan engine checks traffic as it enters the network, ensuring unimpeded network
- Protect the network instantly. The STM is a plug-and-play security solution that can be
instantly added to networks without requiring network reconfiguration.
- Set access policies for individual users or groups. You can configure Web and e-mail access
access policies for individual users and groups based on the STM’s local database, on group IP
address, on LDAP domain, group, or user, or on RADIUS VLAN.
- Receive real-time alerts and generate comprehensive reports. You can configure the STM
to send alerts when a malware attack or outbreak is detected on the network. Real-time alerts
can be sent by e-mail, allowing you to monitor malware events wherever you are.
By configuring the STM to send malware alerts, you can isolate and clean the infected
computer before the malware incident can develop into a full-blown outbreak. The STM also
provides comprehensive reports that you can use to analyze network and malware trends.
- Allow automated component updates. Downloading components regularly is the key to
ensuring updated protection against new threats. The STM makes this administrative task
easier by supporting automatic malware pattern, program, and engine updates.
- Manage through SNMP support. You can enable and configure the STM’s SNMP settings to
receive SNMP traps through a supported MIB browser.
