The CSC SSM maintains a file containing signature profiles of suspicious content, updated regularly from an update server at Trend Micro. The CSC SSM scans traffic it receives from the adaptive security appliance and compares it to the content profiles it obtains from Trend Micro. It then forwards legitimate content on to the adaptive security appliance for routing, or blocks and reports content that is suspicious.
