MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Nevis Networks, a market leader in identity based persistent LAN security solutions, today announced it is offering qualifying organizations a free Network Security Assessment providing a detailed traffic analysis that can be delivered for individual LAN segments or on a network-wide basis. The free service leverages Nevis LANenforcer appliance to quickly identify how legitimate and malicious traffic patterns are affecting the network as well as determine systems that are non-compliant with company security policies.
"The LAN security assessment from Nevis provides enterprises with an opportunity to view the traffic profile of its clients in the least protected and most vulnerable area of the networkthe Internal LAN, said Michael Weinstein, CTO of Angel Computer Network Services, Inc., based in Wall, NJ. This can expose previously unknown issues and provide an opportunity to mitigate risks before they get out of hand and possibly compromise the business. With LANenforcer's real-time and historical reporting, businesses can benefit from this powerful system as an auditing, compliance management and forensic analysis tool. Any organization concerned about the robustness and security of their LAN will benefit greatly from this assessment."

Without fail, our LAN security assessment service provides visibility into user activity, and uncovers malicious traffic, and compliance failures that LAN Security managers are simply unaware of, said Nevis Networks COO Shane Buckley. Weve detected everything from operating system patch irregularities to malware brought into the network from unmanaged, mobile or external systems. In one instance we were able to identify and remove over 200Gbps of benign Malware activity going from the internal network to the internet, which translated into tangible ROI for the customer by saving further investment in additional, expensive perimeter security devices. The cliché you cant control what you cant see is absolutely the case with LAN security and our assessment provides essential visibility with concise and actionable recommendations to improve the security posture, performance and availability of the enterprise network
