WATERLOO, Ont., and GENEVA, Oct. 15 �At ITU Telecom World in Geneva, Sandvine announced new worm mitigation capability for its Peer-To-Peer Policy Management platform. In addition to dramatically reducing the network impact of peer-to-peer file sharing, Sandvine's platform can now monitor peer-to-peer and all other Internet traffic for worm signs, neutralizing malicious code in transit before it crashes network performance.

Sandvine's approach tags worm code as it appears on the network, then identifies and counters its destructive properties. By emasculating the worm and isolating its effective range, P2P Policy Management eliminates or dramatically reduces the need for patches or upgrades to routing and switching equipment.
