Live Virus Testing With Virus Throttle Technology
Source: Hewlett-Packard (HP)
Virus Throttle (VT) technology has a powerful ability to detect and respond to real-world virus and worm attacks. Developed in HP labs, VT technology is implemented through the connection-rate filtering feature in the ProCurve Switch 3500yl, 5300xl, 5400zl, 6200yl, and 8212zl series. Unlike traditional anti-virus approaches based on the actual code or signature of a virus, VT technology requires no signature files; therefore, it can protect networks from zero-day threats long before typical anti-virus and IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) vendors can provide any remedies.
