AUSTIN, Texas – Feb. 19, 2004 – TippingPoint Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: TPTI), the leader in intrusion prevention, today announced that the University of Colorado at Denver has implemented the UnityOne Intrusion Prevention System. Since implementation, it has blocked an average of 300,000 malicious packets per day.
According to Frank Edlin, assistant vice chancellor for computing, information and networking services at University of Colorado at Denver, “After a very thorough evaluation process, we discovered the UnityOne device offered a higher performance level than the other solutions.”
The University of Colorado at Denver contract was completed through Dell, which sells TippingPoint’s products through its software and peripherals business.
The UnityOne Intrusion Prevention Systems are able to perform total packet inspection through Layer 7 with sub-millisecond latencies for real-time traffic analysis. The UnityOne is kept up-to-date through a Digital Vaccine service that is deployed to customer devices on a regular basis with newly created vulnerability-based Virtual Software Patches and security filters. In addition to protecting network vulnerabilities, UnityOne devices offer bandwidth management capabilities including Peer-to-Peer Piracy Prevention features, which block or throttle illegal file sharing for maximum network performance.
TippingPoint’s Chief Executive Officer Kip McClanahan said, “The University of Colorado and Dell are key relationships for us. TippingPoint’s best-in-class intrusion prevention products married with Dell’s superior customer service provide a great product and a great value for higher education customers.”
