MicroWorld Winsock Layer (MWL) is a revolutionary technology developed by MicroWorld. It's placed between the Winsock Layer and user's applications. MWL allows MicroWorld products to stop dangerous content at the transport layer, before it enters the application layer, and thus protect Information Systems round the clock.

For tackling Spam and Phishing, MicroWorld employs a unique technology named Non Intrusive Learning Patterns (NILP). This adaptive mechanism can analyze each email according to the Behavioral Patterns of the user and can take an informed decision there after. It has the capability to learn on its own and can also incorporate regular research feeds from the MicroWorld Server.
