Surfing ... BUT SAFE!

IKARUS is a dynamic solution that combines advanced security, full customisation and control to protect your company from malicious threats from the Internet before they reach the network.

All web requests are filtered by IKARUS, infected files are blocked and your network and confidential information remain uncompromised.
Defend against harmful or blacklisted websites, protect yourself against malicious downloads and avoid the increasingly threatening “Drive-by infections” in real time.





Configure IKARUS with different filters: Virus filter, URL filter, file-type filter, country filter, continent filter, browser filter and access control lists. Define whitelists and blacklists or block specific file types by user or group. Utilise our category lists to make configuration effortless. All filters are hierarchical, so you can block a certain category but allow some URLs in that category.

Implement the IKARUS version into your company or use the existing expert infrastructure in the IKARUS
