This is really one criteria that’s universal!When thinking about scalability, there’s really a multiple things to consider:Scale for total end users globallyScale for large customers with hundreds of thousands of users in a single organization with a single policyScale globally – or maybe you’d call it global reachDoing all this while maintaining a high performance serviceScanSafe hits all these points. Every day, our service scans billions of Web requests, and to give you a sense of the scale of that, it’s similar to the number of Web requests that Google handles every day. Every single one of those requests is scanned in real-time to ensure policy and security are maintained – that’s millions of end users around the world. In order to ensure that our customers maintain the highest levels of performance ScanSafe - all this real-time analysis, using our proprietary analysis engine Outbreak Intelligence, (which we’ll talk about later in this presentation) is carried out in parallel using the vast amount of resources that we have in place around the world. This enables maximized security with maximized performance. On average the scanning, analysis, security and policy enforcement offered by the ScanSafe solution takes less than 50ms which is not perceivable to end-users.Looking at where our customer base is located, ScanSafe has customers in over 100 countries, most of the globe! This is really the testament to the high performance that we enable for our customers regardless of their geographical location. The chances are that in whatever country you might want to access the Internet, we have existing customers there using our service already.ScanSafe has very clear data around the proof points for scalability and our customers feel secure that their service will be of the highest standard and performance.Thinking about reliability - we know that every time a solution that impacts Web access goes down there are severe repercussions – no Internet access means lost revenue, unhappy customers, confused business partners, more work. That’s why at ScanSafe we designed our solution with the highest levels of resilience so that our customers don’t have to suffer the pain of lost Internet access. Again going back to offering proof of our capabilities, we are very proud that over the past 6 years, ScanSafe has maintained 100% continuous uptime. Our customers have had no downtime whatsoever – there aren’t many companies who can say that.So how did we do this? We built the highest quality solution that we could. We used only top tier data centers around the world, data centers that matched the SLAs that we offer to our customers and data centers that are formally certified for the highest levels of service and security such as ISO27001, SAS 70 Type II. Then we connected all those data centers with high bandwidth connectivity – 10 gigabits per second - so that we can use all our resources with the absolute minimum of latency.Once we had this top tier, high speed network in place, we ensured that every single piece was being monitored, so that in the unlikely event of a failure, our architecture will be immediately re-routed and the issue resolved. Coupled with this, all ScanSafe customers are assigned routes to multiple data centers, so if an entire data center were to disappear, their service would remain unaffected and their Web traffic would remain secure – this is true for remote or roaming employees as well as for those that work in an office.ScalabilityBillions of Web requests/dayHighly Parallel processingMulti-tenant architecture: average <50 ms latency10Gb connectivityRedundant network providers
14 Outbreak Intelligence - The Results GumblarMultiple injection attacksPercentage of malware blocksZeus Botnet / LuckysploitSo I’ve described how Outbreak Intelligence works – here we can see details of the results that Outbreak Intelligence has had in The blue slide in this chart is the percentage of blocks that are zero-day blocks made by Outbreak Intelligence, or, to put it another way, the threats that would have evaded traditional list based security systems.You can see that on some days, directly linked to the release of a new zero-day threat, the number of blocks made by Outbreak Intelligence is well over 80% - in 2008 we had numerous days when it was over 90% of all blocks. This is the real benefit – effective protection from zero-day threats.At ScanSafe we can prove to our prospects that our solution works, and works better than the competition. 27% of all malware blocks in 2009 were as a result of Outbreak Intelligence – zero-day threats that evaded signature based security solutions.
15 ScanCenter - Management Multiple rules and schedules for User/Group granularityBi-directional content based policy enforcementDynamic content classificationControl over HTTP & HTTPS communications
16 Web Intelligence Reporting Over 24,000 report combinations covering more than 80 attributes in 11 reporting categoriesCumulative, trending and search driven forensic reports, comprehensive drill down analysisBased on data warehouse infrastructure for performanceScheduled reports can be sent securely to defined usersGranular reporting enables actionable remedies to issues and unrivalled visibility into resource usageAnd finally on to the Management aspect. I’ll take you on a walk through our management interface – ScanCenter – in a minute, but before we get there I wanted to point out some of the highlights of our reporting solution. This has been designed specifically to allow our customers clearer visibility, not only into Web usage, the who has gone where, but also how IT and network resources are being utilized. That’s why we offer the ability to report on over 80 different attributes – as well as the regular ones such as user, category, host etc, we also give customers reporting capabilities on factors such as the Referring domain, browser used, content type requested, queries entered into search engines to name but a few. All of this additional information extends the use of the reporting capabilities to be used beyond just looking at Web security related details, and enables thousands of different drill down reports for numerous groups within an organization.As well as reporting on what content is entering your network, you can also understand what information has left – or has been prevented from leaving by the outbound content control policy so you et a holistic view of what your Internet connectivity is being used for.As well as reporting on what is happening on the network, you can, of course, define a policy for all Web traffic, HTTP and SSL encrypted traffic, prevent that malicious and inappropriate content from entering your network AND help prevent confidential data from leaving your network. You can have peace of mind knowing that all the security aspects of your Web usage are taken care of – we covered that in the Security section of this presentation.All of that is managed from a single, web-based portal which also integrates all reporting for your solution.You can see some examples of WIRe here – in different output graphs. WIRe is an integrated part of our offering for all customers, and being in the cloud, there is nothing for the customer to install in order to start benefitting from WIRe from day one.

32 Why PIM?There are many customers that do not want to deploy proxy servers yet still want granular policy control. This can be because of the shear number of sites they have to manage or for other technical reasonsDeploying a small number of proxy servers to where many different locations tunnel, negates a lot of the advantages of modern MPLS networks and increases latency and bandwidth costs
33 How Does PIM Work?PIM adds -XS headers to the browser’s user agent stringIncluded in this string is a unique hash that identifies the user in our Scanning towerThis detail is encryptedUpon logon, PIM sends an out-of-bound request to the scanning tower and uploads the group information for that userThese groups are automatically created in ScanCenterFollowing registration, each time a request to the Web is made, only the hash is sent to us along with the request and we can indentify the user and apply the correct policy according to the relevant group/s

Remote workers are those that occasionally or normally work from home. They probably connect through a cable or DSL connection and VPN into the office. It is these users that the majority of vendors cater to with their remote user product.If you start to look outside this very defined individual use case, there are many different factors to consider as you can see in this table here.Connection through another proxy – maybe a contractor working at a client location. Many remote worker solutions fall over when an additional proxy is introduced – the ports that they need to communicate are closed, or it just doesn’t know how to communicate through a different proxy device.Transparency – the method of authentication for many other remote user solutions is manual – enter your username and password…for every Web browser session. This impacts the user experience and creates a frustrating cycle for end users.Operation at locations that require payment or acceptance of Terms & Conditions – while it might seem obvious that this would be a key requirement for just about any hotel, airport or coffee shop, many solutions are not designed adequately to work with these options, hit or miss is the best you could hope for.Security through encryption – if you are sending information such as user and group identification over the Internet, it’s an excellent idea to encrypt it for security. Many solution however, as they are designed for workers sitting behind a VPN, do not offer this capability, at best this is a security hole, at worst, a lawsuit or other claim if information is used to access your organization and steal data.Tamper resistant – How easy is it for a user to circumvent the controls that are put in place? Can they change the settings? Can they disable the service? You are putting in a process to eliminate the security weak-link, however many solutions provide no protection against a user just turning off the control.Performance Optimization – Let’s say you get on a plane in New York, and get off in Sydney. You turn on your laptop and – lets assume everything works – you are routing all your traffic through a data center in the US. That’s going to add significant latency and reduce your productivity. Again, the solution many vendors offer will do exactly that, they have no capability to re-route your traffic dependent on your location.Anywhere+ is the only solution for remote and roaming users that covers all of these capabilities, to work wherever you are, however you connect to the Internet and to offer a secure, high performance Web security service.38
