content security

Content security is concerned with protecting information from viruses, worms and Trojans, as well as detecting new threats and preventing spam. Content security includes security solutions to defend against hacker attacks that cause damage via vulnerabilities in networks and applications.

Content security involveschecking the integrity ofdata and whether it can be sent, received and used in encrypted form. These security checks are carried out according to a set of rules, the policies, which are used to check organizational and personal identification data.

Content security measures range from antivirus programs that scan web traffic and all e-mails, through defense against hacker attacks, to downstream anti-spam filters, web filters and mail filters. Web filtering filters out unwanted websites, while e-mail filtering scans e-mails for text and attachments depending on their content and filters them out accordingly.
