Reputation Enabled Defense is a security subscription for XTM and Firebox appliances that detects botnet activity while ensuring a fast, secure web browsing experience. This unique gateway solution relies on the industry's most comprehensive reputation scoring database, finding and blocking more malicious domains, IP addresses, and URLs than competing services. URLs with malicious content are rejected at the connection level to keep the network safe. Because URLs with good reputation scores can be passed along without further AV scanning, throughput performance is boosted. IT administrators have management flexibility and simplicity with a centralized console or web UI.
