Can-do security approach from Marshal

The head of Marshal’s Trace (Threat Research and Content Engineering) team wants to provide a much more proactive service to protect customers from threats and vulnerabilities.

The team recently launched a website to provide information on spam, phishing, viruses and other threats.

“We want to move to a proactive service. For example if there’s a new version of image-based spam we can proactively push out policy to protect that customer before they get hit,” says Bradley Anstis, director of product development.

Bradley Anstis says Marshal’s experience, (the company is approaching its ten-year anniversary), makes a difference in the technologies it is using to tackle threats.

Staff join or leave the Trace team from within Marshal as threat levels dictate. It is based in New Zealand but gets input from global support bases, and has the final say on when a product gets shipped.

“Having a direct say in how Marshal products end up is one of the biggest kicks,” he says

It has recently refreshed the architecture of its WebMarshal product and Anstis says is will be scalable and easy to administer and manage in large organisations.

Marshal is also looking to develop instant messaging and VoIP offerings, and these will need increasing levels of protection in future, Anstis says.

He believes companies will increasingly focus on virtualising and integrating their security infrastructure, rather than on point buys for the management of particular threats.

He has been with Marshal since 2004 and before returning to New Zealand when Marshal was bought out by management a year later, he was Marshal senior products manager with NetIQ in London and Houston. He is also a former trainer with Citrix in Asia Pacific.
