Trend Network Services to Launch NetSecure Threat Management Service at InfoSec 2004
Trend Network Services will launch its NetSecure Threat Manager, a powerful vulnerability assessment and consolidated patch management utility for enterprise-wide networks, at the InfoSec 2004 show.
The Threat Manager is a service that can be automated to manage internal and external threats to a network, based upon Trend’s NetControl and NetConnect reporting utility. The service will identify potential threats such as vulnerabilities in a network infrastructure that could be exploited by a virus, internet worm or hacker.
Comprehensive and comparative reports can be generated for all levels of business, which indicate the systems and applications that are affected, the remedies needed and the personnel who are accountable for specific assets.
The service will benefit users who have very little time or resources to devote to network security. It automates the task of collecting security and patch notifications from vendors and security organisations and provides these at a centralised information portal. Only information relating to systems and applications that are actually installed is given.
The system can also use templates developed for particular sites to test for vulnerabilities.
It is operated through Trend Network Services’ secure online portal, which gives the customers visibility of their network and systems. This can be a key component in adopting a verifiable security posture.
“Trend Network Services has been offering network security and integrity assessments for some time but our users wanted to know if the process could be automated. This reduces the time spent on consultancy visits and specifying consultancy projects and the time to fulfil these tasks.” says Stuart Muirhead at Trend Network Services. “What we are offering is an effective way to move towards an effective Security Policy in a short time-frame.” Trend Network Services is at Stand 612 at InfoSec 2004.
