FREMONT, Calif., May 30, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- TeamF1, Inc. (, the leader in embedded networking and security software solutions for wired and wireless applications, today announced a partnership with zvelo, Inc., a leader in website categorization and URL database solutions, to offer zero-hour malicious website detection and protection to further secure business and residential networks. TeamF1 will use zvelo's URL database, zveloDB™, in their SecureF1rst platform. Besides offering security from undesirable web content, this partnership enables flexible and policy-based web access control options for SMB networks and tighter parental control options for home networks resulting in safer overall Internet connectivity.

TeamF1 and zvelo's joint solution combines extensive coverage of the active websites visited by users with a strong policy management framework and optimized gateway-based caching and network stack integration that offers real-time categorization and detection of new malicious websites, including in-depth, granular categorization of social-networking, blogging and other sites with diverse content. Its real-time content filtering and control for network users offers protection from infected URLs exploiting recently discovered browser and third party plug-in vulnerabilities that spread through emails, social media interactions and web searches.

"With malware threats and so-called zero-hour attacks spreading rapidly when new vulnerabilities are discovered and exploited, even AV-protected business and home networks can fall victim to malicious web content before security holes are patched or AV signatures updated," said Mukesh Lulla, president of TeamF1, Inc. "Networks today need multiple layers of comprehensive protection against such threats and our partnership with zvelo allows us to offer iron-clad content filtering protection to network users in addition to our active gateway, end-point and cloud based anti-malware detection and intrusion prevention technologies."

"Simply blocking access to inappropriate porn, adult and other types of websites is no longer a satisfactory level of protection," said Jeff Finn, CEO of zvelo. "Today's dynamic web with continuous changes being made to unmoderated websites provides hackers with an ideal environment for increasingly sophisticated exploits using a combination of compromised websites and social engineering tricks. Timely detection of malicious websites, together with content categorization and filtering, is quickly becoming necessary for protecting users from both inappropriate as well as dangerous websites. Our partnership with TeamF1 makes these malicious website detections readily available to end-users by combining our zveloDB solution with TeamF1's powerful SecureF1rst software modules right at the Internet gateway where such content usually enters the network."
