Secure Computing announced Macau-based casino-entertainment resort Ponte 16 has selected its Secure Firewall.
Built over 2.3 acres, Ponte 16 features a wide variety of retail shops, food and beverage outlets, luxurious hotel with 389 rooms, and a 270,000 square foot casino with 150 gaming tables, five VIP halls and 320 slot machines.
According to Secure Computing, the resort required a proactive and defense-in-depth security solution to integrate with its existing computing environment. After a six-month evaluation of different security products, Ponte 16 picked Secure Firewall, the security vendor said.
Secure Firewall's intrusion detection and prevention functionality identifies and logs attacks on the network as well as occurring irregularities, Secure Computing noted. Using this data, the administrator can progressively improve the security of the corporate network, the vendor added.
Secure Firewall sets a new standard for proactive threat detection by integrating the industry's first and leading reputation system -- TrustedSourceTM technology -- into every firewall.
"Secure Firewall is quick to implement and easy to manage, and is effective at protecting us from internet threats and intrusions, while also complying with the company's policies and government regulations," said Gordon Cheong, IT manager at Pier 16 -- Resort Hotel Management.
The resort benefits from Secure Firewall's real-time behavior monitoring of dynamic URLs, domains, IPs, message content and images, said Secure Computing. More than 90 percent of spam, viruses and spyware have been blocked by the firewall, the firm added.
