Enterasys Delivers Comprehensive Solution For Addressing Network And Host-Based Threats

Enterasys Intrusion Prevention Solution extends its network protection to enterprises deploying the IPv6 standard

ANDOVER, Mass., Dec. 13, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, today announced the latest release of the Enterasys Intrusion Prevention Solution (IPS), a comprehensive solution featuring patented distributed intrusion prevention technology which simultaneously addresses the widest variety of network and host-based threats. The latest version of Enterasys IPS now extends its network protection to enterprises deploying the IPv6 standard.

"Malone University recognized the need to strengthen its network security and chose Enterasys IPS because of its advanced combination of threat protections, along with its flexibility to integrate with our multi-vendor infrastructure," said Clark Hoopes, director of information technologies at Malone University in Canton, Ohio. "We require the highest standards in network security, while still staying within our limited IT budget. We count on Enterasys security solutions to help us meet those standards."

The Enterasys IPS solution includes advanced threat detection technologies, such as VoIP traffic analysis, vulnerability signature matching, protocol analysis, and network behavioral analysis with total packet capture and complete session reconstruction. With this release, Enterasys IPS Host Sensors support an even wider range of platforms including VMware ESX server, Windows, AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and many others. Enterprises gain the ability to secure their mission critical servers and meet compliance requirements with one solution.

"Deploying a security solution requires extensive integration of various technologies in order to ensure the highest degree of protection," said Chris Crowell, president and CEO at Enterasys. "Enterasys security solutions provide a suite of standards-based products that can secure any network from any vendor. With the latest version of Enterasys IPS, we are extending the Enterasys Distributed Intrusion Prevention solution to IPv6 networks, while continuing to provide the automation, visibility and control required to meet today's security and compliance challenges."

The latest update to Enterasys IPS provides protection from both internal and external threats with several unique capabilities:

-- Rather than simply alerting customers to a threat, Enterasys makes it easy to immediately remove the threat from any multi-vendor network without impacting performance. -- Enterasys is the only IPS supplier to protect networks to the highest standard of best practices including automatically removing an attacker's access to the network and reconfiguring the network to prevent the attacker's penetration technique. -- Enterasys' patented(1) Distributed IPS is unique in its ability to identify a threat or security event, locate the exact physical source of the event and mitigate the threat through the use of enforceable bandwidth rate limiting policies, quarantine policies or other port level controls.

"Like many educational institutions, Bentley University faces ever-growing demands on the network as students, faculty and guests use all the latest mobile devices," said Todd Marsh, principal network engineer at Bentley University. "Our reputation as one of the leading business schools in the U.S. requires that we meet these demands while maintaining the highest levels of security and regulatory compliance. Enterasys IPS provides the automation, visibility and control to address these requirements."

The latest release of Enterasys IPS builds on Enterasys' complete suite of standards-based products that can secure any network from any vendor. Unlike vendors that supply only a single element of a solution, the Enterasys solution provides a complete suite of products designed to work together. The suite includes:

-- Network-Based Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS/IDS) -- Host-Based Intrusion Detection (HIDS) -- Network Access Control (NAC) -- Security Information and Event Manager (SIEM) with Network Based Anomaly Detection (NBAD) -- Security-enabled switching infrastructure
