DUBAI, UAE, October 12, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- D-Link Middle East Africa, the end-to-end network solutions provider today announced that a UK patent was granted for the Company's proactive network security defense method labeled as ZoneDefense(TM), a technology that helps prevent businesses from exposure to potential network threats.

Patented as the Network information security zone joint defense system, D-Link's ZoneDefense solves the limitation of pre-emptive measures that traditional network security technologies do not provide.

ZoneDefense(TM) automatically quarantines infected computers on a network by detecting abnormal behavior, which violates rules of its network access service. This countermeasure can effectively avoid the spread of viruses to the same subnet or other subnets, as well as preventing attacks from intruders such as hackers who can paralyze critical servers within enterprises.

D-Link provides a full range of network solutions, including storage, switches, Wireless and IP Surveillance, and strives to deliver high quality products with added security features that help businesses successfully protect their network.

The D-Link ZoneDefense(TM) initiative demonstrates D-Link's ongoing commitment in network security. It further shows the Company's technical capability and strength in providing integrated network security architecture.

In addition to the recent UK patent, D-Link ZoneDefense(TM) was also granted an Italy patent last year.
