Major Web Retailer Chooses CyberwallPLUS Host Intrusion Prevention

WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 7, 2001–Network-1 Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSSI), a technology leader in active intrusion prevention solutions for e-Business networks, announced today that its advanced host intrusion prevention solution for multi-layered network security, CyberwallPLUS-SV, was chosen by a major Web retailer to secure its Web servers. The retailer, which expects revenues well in excess of $300 million in 2001, is replacing a competitive host-based intrusion prevention solution that does not offer the same robust security capabilities as CyberwallPLUS.

CyberwallPLUS-SV is the latest generation of Network-1’s hybrid, host-based security products that integrates a wide range of security techniques to actively block intrusions. This unique network security solution combines the fine-grained access control and stateful packet inspection typically found only in high-end perimeter firewalls, along with flexible, software-based intrusion detection techniques. This combination provides the highest level of host-dedicated protection from Internet-based and internal user attacks. In this implementation, CyberwallPLUS-SV will be used to harden mission-critical Web servers and those servers residing in a DMZ (demilitarized zone) residing between the Web servers and the corporate network. A DMZ is a network security term that denotes the area between Internet-facing Web servers and the local area network (LAN) that can present an area of vulnerability when implemented without specialized protection like host intrusion prevention.

The customer said they chose CyberwallPLUS in order to lock down their servers to the highest degree possible. After an extensive evaluation, CyberwallPLUS was selected as the “best-in-class” host-based security solution to secure their servers.

“It’s exciting to see the implementation of CyberwallPLUS with a major Web-based marketer,” said Avi Fogel, President and CEO of Network-1 Security Solutions. “They chose us for the same reason we are popular with sensitive government sites — we are the best server protection solution for multi-layered network security.”
