(NASDAQ: PKT), the global Internet Intelligence company, today announced that its Network Application Visibility Library (NAVL) has been selected by GFI Software to enhance GFI WebMonitor, one of the industry's leading web security solutions for small to mid-size businesses (SMBs).

"Using Procera's NAVL solution enhances our product capabilities, enabling us to focus on our core competencies and more strategic activities that drive our bottom line so we can address the evolving concerns and demands of our SMB customers."
"In addition to a wide variety of malware detection techniques, advanced solutions in the Secure Web Gateway space such as GFI's WebMonitor are adding DPI engines to their products for improved intelligence and control," said James Dirksen, Vice President of OEM and Embedded Products at Procera. "These solutions are critical to SMBs as the numbers and types of mobile devices in the enterprise have risen in recent years. DPI capabilities will become increasingly important differentiators for them as the market continues to mature and BYOD usage expands."
NAVL's industry leading traffic signature database is updated on an ongoing basis, allowing solution providers to keep their products current with today's evolving network landscape including malicious sites, security threats and potential sources of Internet abuse. NAVL is a next-generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) software engine that provides real-time, Layer-7 classification of network traffic. Running on all popular processors and operating systems, NAVL allows integrators to remain focused on their core competencies while implementing industry-leading DPI functionality from Procera in their products.
