Major Government Research Laboratory Chooses CyberwallPLUS To Protect Strategic Servers

WALTHAM, Mass., Aug 20, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Network-1 Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: NSSI), announced today that a major government research laboratory has chosen CyberwallPLUS-SV to protect strategic Windows servers across the organization. This same facility is already standardized on CyberwallPLUS to directly protect the desktop computers of its employees, and subsequently extended the deployment to include an additional layer of defense for even more valuable data and application servers.

“It’s exciting to have CyberwallPLUS-SV selected to protect such a highly sensitive environment and to expand our relationship with this important client,” said Murray Fish, President of Network-1. “Our unique ability to provide highly detailed and user specific security policies is of particular value, as is the definitive defense against all three generations of the Code Red Worm. The laboratory’s decision is a testament to our comprehensive security capabilities for internal network systems and emphasizes the growing importance of internal security, which is attracting the most attention today.”

CyberwallPLUS-SV (server) and CyberwallPLUS-WS (workstation) represent the latest generation of Network-1’s host-based security products that integrate a powerful range of security techniques to actively detect and block intrusions. This unique solution provides the fine-grained access control, bi-directional protection and stateful packet inspection typically found only in high-end perimeter firewalls, combined with powerful intrusion detection and prevention capabilities. This combination provides the highest level of host protection from both Internet and internal user attacks. CyberwallPLUS’ policy management also enables detailed security policies to be formulated, distributed, and monitored, maximizing IT security resources.
