Secos Introduces Intrusion Detection System SecoShield 3.0
SecoShield’s Power and Ease-of-Use Provides Unparalleled Security Across the Entire Enterprise
Irvine, CA – April 8th, 2002 – Secos, dedicated to the development of effective, globally focused technology, offering network, transaction, content, and system security, today announced the release of SecoShield version 3.0, an industry-leading network-based, real-time intrusion detection and response system that provides customers savings with unmatched security performance.
According to Nick Hulse, vice president and general manager of Secos, network administrators are overwhelmed with inflexible security products that can’t scale with their company’s growing bandwidth needs and don’t easily integrate with other security products deployed on the network, therefore creating gaps in network security that hackers can easily penetrate.
“SecoShield 3.0 effortlessly handles sustained traffic of over 300 MBPS without dropping packets, making it one of the highest performing software intrusion detection systems available, and its usability is, simply, unrivaled,” said Hulse. “Due to its powerful engine and user-friendly templates, SecoShield allows administrators to quickly collect and analyze data that is pertinent to their network’s demands, unlike other products which only provide analysis based on their incomplete design limitations.”
Hulse added that due to the product’s unique and innovative design, which includes a single network sensor that supports multiple network interface cards (NICs), it could be implemented at a significantly reduced cost compared to the competition.
SecoShield 3.0 has other powerful and unique features that have contributed to its industry leadership position, including:
– The most complete defensive arsenal of “detection protection’ available, including misuse, anomaly, policy-based detection and stateful inspection
– One of the world’s largest signature database libraries including customizable signatures, live updates and response capabilities
– Customizable flood and port scanning detection
– An intuitive graphical-user interface that creates fast, accurate and customizable reports
– Advanced forensics documentation that allows network administrators to compile data on hackers and intruders
– Re-analysis and consolidation of redundant alerts
SecoShield was the very first NIDS to become OPSEC certified, having passed Check Point’s most rigorous testing and usability standards.
SecoShield 3.0 supports Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000, Sun Solaris and most LINUX operating systems and can be administered remotely from the network operations center.
