Intrusion Inc. Doubles Performance of Two Most Popular IDS Sensors

RICHARDSON, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 20, 2003– Intrusion Inc. Leads in Price/Performance with Double the Performance and New Lower Prices for the Two Most Popular Appliance-Based IDS Sensors!

Furthering the commitment of providing enterprises and governments with the only common criteria certified, best of breed network intrusion detection, Intrusion Inc. (Nasdaq:INTZ), a leading provider of intrusion detection solutions for the information-driven economy, today announced its two most popular IDS sensors, the SecureNet 5545 and the deployable SecureNet 5445 are now capable of twice the performance of the previous release. To further increase Intrusion’s leadership in the price/performance arena, the prices of these appliance-based sensors have been reduced up to 25%.

“There has never been a greater need for network security. And, at the same time, it has been a long time since there was such a need for affordable solutions that meet the strict requirements of the enterprise,” said Ryon Packer, vice president of product management, business development and marketing for Intrusion Inc. “We have long been at the forefront of making network IDS easier, faster and more accessible to the broader security market. With these new performance enhancements and great new prices, enterprises can now afford to implement or expand network IDS to increase their overall security.”
Intrusion SecureNet 5445 is a deployable 19″ rack mountable IDS sensor, with no externally accessible drives and no keyboard, video or mouse attachments — so there’s nothing to be messed around with when the sensor is deployed. The SecureNet 5445 and the desktop model, SecureNet 2445 are now capable of 100Mb/s detection with a North American list price of only $5,995, a 25% price reduction with twice the throughput! All of the SecureNet sensors share the same features and easy to use SecureNet WBI Web browser interface for access from anywhere enterprise management and low total cost of ownership, or stand alone network IDS solutions.

Intrusion SecureNet 5545 network IDS sensor is a 19″ rack mountable, 1U high appliance that is now capable of 200Mb/s detection for a US list price of only $9,995, a 17% price reduction with twice the throughput! The SecureNet 5545 is a fully featured network IDS sensor with Intrusion developed pattern matching, protocol decoding and protocol anomaly detection for highly accurate and very broad detection capabilities. Like the other SecureNet Sensors, the 5545 has an easy to use Web browser interface for complete sensor configuration. The SecureNet WBI (web-ee) interface also allows the SecureNet 5545 to operate as a standalone IDS — with no other infrastructure required. This provides a remarkable new price point for small and medium businesses, banks, insurance companies and health care entities to get the benefits of network IDS with a true plug-and-protect(SM) self contained system.

The entire SecureNet family of product is available now from Intrusion Resellers and Distributors across the globe. Prices range from under $3,000 for hardware and software combined systems to in the mid-twenties for the Common Criteria EAL2 certified Intrusion SecureNet CC 7345.
