Perimeter Launches Viewpoint 2.0 Correlative Security Engine

Viewpoint 2.0 includes compliance reporting and educational risk analysis to create a profile of risk with recommended solutions

Milford, CT, June 29, 2009 " Perimeter, the trusted market leader of enterprise-class information security services for companies of any size, today announced the launch of Viewpoint 2.0, the industry's first Correlative Security Engine with built-in Compliance Profiler. Viewpoint 2.0 includes compliance reporting and educational risk analysis to create a profile of risk with recommended solutions.

The new engine enables companies to view and monitor all of their security and compliance in real time through a single view across entire company systems to ensure threats can be addressed immediately, while facilitating simple compliance reporting. Additionally, The Compliance Profiler is a new tool that offers insight into areas where companies can expand their protection by adding new solutions. Viewpoint 2.0 manages existing customer-premise resources as well as Perimeter-provided resources, all with one engine.

"Critical information now exists everywhere " in data centers, in the network and within a growing number and complexity of intelligent, mobile devices. With growing security threats, more complex and disparate e-mail systems and accelerated regulatory and compliance demands, the imperative to secure information has never been higher," said Doug Howard, Chief Strategy Officer at Perimeter. "Previously, companies would have to rely on a cumbersome and fragmented approach to security data analysis. We've developed a breakthrough security engine that takes information security and compliance insight to a whole new level. Viewpoint 2.0 provides a deeper understanding of threats across a company's entire network and IT systems, both internally and externally from one single platform."

Viewpoint 2.0 provides on-demand compliance reporting for all of a company's constituents including management, technical personnel and regulators, providing each group with relevant information specific to their requirements and technical understanding. In addition to the security reports, companies can also view employee productivity and performance usage, including how long employees are accessing various systems.

Built around a proprietary reporting and analysis architecture, Viewpoint 2.0 integrates the two otherwise separate worlds of open and closed source applications. The end result is highly secure and scalable platform that is operating system agnostic on the back-end, and a user interface framework that is secure, feature rich, customizable and very robust. Offered as a monthly subscription based, pre-integrated security utility, Viewpoint 2.0 requires no assembly and offers complete cost predictability.

"Viewpoint 2.0 represents a monumental leap forward in terms of core hardware and software architecture, raw performance, and enterprise level scalability, along with the greater cost predictability of a security-as-a-service model," said Kevin Prince, Chief Architect at Perimeter.
