- New Solution Offers Radically Different Approach to Malware Mitigation and Helps Information Security Professionals Effectively Reduce Risks

Lexsi Group, an international leader in information security, announced today the launch of Malware-Control, a corporate malware blacklist that protects organizations from targeted attacks used for organized, online crime. The solution offers a radically different approach to protecting invaluable company information by blocking outgoing malicious communication, rather than attempting to block malwares from entering corporate networks.

"Our biggest challenges were developing an exhaustive protection solution and guaranteeing traffic performance, while offering a simple and quick integration into existing systems," said William Fox, product manager. "After three years of research, we discovered a blacklist model which was the most relevant and most effective."

Despite increasing security budgets and increased efforts to reduce exposure to liability, approximately five percent of corporate systems are still infected. In fact, more than 50 percent of the latest malwares manage to get through most anti-malware protection platforms.

Malware-Control offers an alternative, game-changing strategy to malware mitigation. Its internal mechanics rely on the identification of "command and control" servers receiving the sensitive data from infected networks, and stops malware when it tries to send data out.

"The race to keep corporate networks clean from malwares has reached its limits," said Fox. "It's a dead-end. We now need to reconsider what is really at stake. In the end, the real issue is not to have grey or confirmed malwares in the network. The issue is to block sensitive data going out of the company."

Malware-Control can easily be integrated with existing security solutions for added protection, and offers a more reliable and cost-effective approach to protecting confidential and proprietary files.

Visit and run the one-minute Safe Network Scan to test your corporate network security and malware mitigation layers. This test is an industry first, is free and instantly uncovers blind spots remaining from the whole network security chain.

Additional information, including technical support, pricing and a brief video ( overview are also available on the site.
