SAN FRANCISCO—May 19, 2010—nCircle, the leader in security and compliance auditing solutions, today announced the nCircle Perimeter Profiler™, a cloud-based virtualized appliance that enables organizations to assess their Internet-facing assets from an external perspective. Perimeter Profiler extends the reach of nCircle IP360™ to include external assets and their related network, operating system and web application vulnerabilities. This perspective is the same public view of the organization’s assets that attackers have and provides crucial intelligence to proactively reduce enterprise risk.

The Perimeter Profiler is part of nCircle IP360™, nCircle’s market-leading vulnerability and risk management solution, giving customers a 360-degree view – inside and out – of their network. Because it is fully integrated, customers get a consolidated view of their entire network using the same objective metrics to measure their external security as they use with their internal security. Perimeter Profiler connects to the IP360 central console just like a hardware Device Profiler appliance, so there is nothing new to learn; the Perimeter Profiler enables customers to connect a cloud-based, virtualized instance into their existing IP360 deployment within minutes.

“In today’s sophisticated threat environment, enterprises are looking for a thorough assessment of their network, inside and out, with consistent measurement and consolidated reporting,” said Alex Quilter, Senior Product Line Manager at nCircle. “nCircle Perimeter Profiler delivers, offering a cloud-based virtualized appliance that is easy to deploy, easy to manage and integrates with customers’ existing nCircle IP360 vulnerability management system.”
