NEW YORK, August 26, 2014 – Bayshore Networks®, which is setting the standard for operational and security policy for the Internet of Things, today issued a major release of Bayshore SingleView™, the management component of the Bayshore platform.
“The requirements for expanding the scope of SingleView stemmed from our ongoing conversations with our global-scale customers,” said Francis Cianfrocca, Founder & CEO of Bayshore Networks. “We believe these new features will be of value to any organization that requires flexible management of their security, safety and operational policies.”
SingleView release 5.1 is designed to manage and administer multiple Bayshore IC™, Bayshore SE™ and Bayshore SCADA Firewalls™. It provides a secure, centralized server-based platform for globally managing Pallaton™ policies and YARA rule sets. It also allows administrators to establish access control that determines who can access Bayshore devices, Pallaton policies, YARA rules and networked content defined by those rules.
Pallaton and YARA Management
Pallaton, Bayshore’s core technology is an extensible, XML-based policy language. The open, flexible Pallaton engine provides a foundation for organization-wide policy execution. It enables you to quickly deploy, evaluate and enforce customized policies that drive your business objectives. YARA is a popular tool that helps security professionals identify and classify malware.
SingleView now supports Pallaton’s new capability to support YARA signatures. Pallaton’s application-layer inspection capabilities now enable it to inspect every level of every document in an archive. Pallaton can extract and inspect content from multi-level archives such as Zips, Tarballs and shell codes, and utilize the customers’ existing YARA rules.
Advanced SingleView Features
SingleView works as a proxy, establishing connections to Bayshore devices while applying access control and versioning. When deploying global Pallaton policies or YARA rules, a rule can be created, changed, and commented upon, and the version progression remains in the system. To push rules to to the network, an administrator simply indicates which Bayshore devices to update.
Bayshore devices are typically located at a network choke point in the data center, enabling them to inspect Layer 7 content traversing networks. SingleView, however, does not have to reside in the same physical location as the Bayshore devices. In fact, it can reside anywhere as long as it has network access to the devices.
Additionally, Bayshore has added an advanced feature to SingleView’s access control capability. This feature prevents system administrators and other employees without access control privileges from viewing sensitive corporate content.
