Business description: Dasient is an Internet security company that protects businesses from web-based malware attacks. It is the first and only company to provide a complete Web Anti-Malware (WAM) service that can automatically identify and quarantine malware on websites, helping businesses avoid losses of traffic, reputation, and revenue.
