EdgeWave Delivers World-ClassWeb Security for the 2015 US Tennis Open

“The US Open can be a very stressful event; there are a lot of moving parts that can change at any moment, but with fewer things that we have to worry about, the better shape we are in. Our non-gambling filtering policies were strictly adhered to without us ever having to touch endpoints, and performance, even with the enormity of data that was transferred during the event, was excellent.”

– Larry Bonfante, Chief Information Officer of the U.S. Tennis Association

iPrism - Security

EdgeWave iPrism Web Security provides real-time protection against advanced threats to ensure the security of your staff and data.

EdgeWave EPIC iGuard URL Analysis

EPIC provides iGuard, the real-time URL analysis capability behind EdgeWave iPrism Web Security. iGuard combines human review with next-generation technology to provide the most accurate website assessments with the lowest false positive and false negative rates in the industry.

Only a human reviewer can determine the true intent of a website. The EPIC analysts behind iGuard are an experienced group of multi-lingual web content experts who characterize sites by domain, specific URL and/or general IP address into 80 categories, using documented, detailed criteria. You receive daily iGuard database updates, and hourly updates on sites containing the most emergent web security risks such as botnets, spyware, malware, and phishing. With EPIC and iGuard’s combination of advanced technology and human review, false positives and false negatives are virtually eliminated. Learn More

Kaspersky Anti-Virus

Kaspersky SafeStream II anti-virus scanning with real-time data stream scanning of http and https traffic.  Includes Zero day high-risk and infected URL feed with up to the minute updates.

Secure Traffic Analysis

HTTPS SNI and Host Certificate inspection for policy compliance. Includes selective TLS interception and proxy with full content inspection.  Features SSL interception configurable via destination domain and/or IP.

Application Filtering

EdgeWave iPrism Web Security offers application controls that reduce the risks associated with unsanctioned application communications. These applications, which include popular IM and P2P protocols, not only erode productivity and drain bandwidth; they can open serious corporate web security gaps where bot-related malware and viruses can invade your network. iPrism allows you to monitor and block IM and P2P applications such as Skype and FTP with a simple set-and-forget check box.

Outbound Anti-Botnet Protection

EdgeWave iPrism Web Security provides continuous defense against dangerous botnets by leveraging its unique botnet threat database to stop the “phone-home” mechanism that enables stealth, bot-related malware to steal identities or data and commit illegal or malicious actions within and outside your network. Learn More

Anti-Circumvention and Anonymous Browsing Protection

Employees who try to get around your Web security measures by using circumvention tools, proxies or anonymizer websites, will have their attempts blocked at every turn by EdgeWave iPrism Web Security’s multi-layered approach:

Dynamically-Detected Proxies

Using deep packet inspection with real-time pattern rules, iPrism web security software monitors and blocks websites or private servers leveraging script-based proxy tools, including PHProxy and CGIProxy, to anonymously redirect web requests. Learn More

Circumvention Defense Network (CDN)

iPrism’s unique CDN protects your organization from circumvention attempts by gathering intelligence on thousands of externally-hosted non-Web servers used to circumvent your network security by re-routing Web requests.  We collect these IP addresses in the cloud and analyze them against known legitimate sites to mitigate false positives and immediately and continuously download the results to your iPrism.  iPrism inspects outbound traffic and enforces the monitoring and blocking of circumvention tools – including UltraSurf, TOR and JAP clients – attempting to connect to their server networks.  Learn More

Active Domain IP Address Mapping and SSL Certificate Inspection

Administrators always know where users are going on the Web because HTTPS traffic is enforced and reported using domain names, instead of IP addresses, in both transparent bridge and proxy mode deployments.  This mapping feature blocks the ability to circumvent iPrism Web Security using IP addresses.


The iGuard analyst team continuously monitors message groups and other anonymizer listing sites for new anonymizer URLs, and updates the database hourly.
