BETHESDA, Md. -- Fidelis Security Systems, the authority on extrusion prevention, today unveiled version 4.2 of the Fidelis Extrusion Prevention System®, Fidelis XPS™. The latest version of the enterprise-class network appliance offers support for Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6), the ability to block transmissions of data to customer-defined geographies, and a host of additional enhancements to further simplify policy creation and alert management. Fidelis XPS offers the industry’s most extensive protection from data leakage, and version 4.2 continues to showcase all of the product’s superior advantages such as proven performance and prevention across all ports and real-time protocols.

With this latest release, Fidelis XPS is the first and only data leakage solution to comply with new government directives mandating support for IPv6 addresses, an upgrade to the internet's main communications protocol which will provide an almost unlimited number of IP addresses, and offer enhanced mobility, security, and network management features. Fidelis XPS is now able to operate in an IPv6 environment by processing, storing, and displaying the new, longer URLs throughout the system. The Fidelis XPS sensor decodes IPv6 packets and the Fidelis XPS management console displays the longer addresses in all of the areas of the system including reports and alerting. Additionally, users can now expand their ability to block a communication channel based on the country where the source and/or destination IP address is registered, giving customers a higher level of granular control.

“Just days after being named ‘Best Overall Product of the Year,’ we are proud to announce that Fidelis XPS is again leading the data leakage prevention market with the cutting-edge features found in this latest release,” said Timothy Sullivan, CEO of Fidelis Security Systems. “The product’s ability to support IPv6 addresses and the addition of managing transmissions based on country of destination further enhances the system’s ease of use and granularity of control to deliver instant results.”
