Security Architects launches its new product, Ozone, a Host Intrusion Prevention System

Over the past few years, there has been a sharp rise in the number of reported vulnerabilities and worms. According to Microsoft, the computer worm Blaster was single-handedly responsible for successfully infecting over 8 million computers around the world.

To combat these security threats, the majority of organizations utilize existing reactive security products such as firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems and anti-viruses. Yet, these solutions have proved to be ineffective and have left many organizations at the mercy of malicious worms.

Ozone is a Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) that protects server and client machines from malicious attacks and computer worms such as Sasser, Witty and Blaster.

Ozone provides multi-layer security that incorporates buffer overflow prevention, application sandboxing and application specific (layer 7) security technology.

Unlike reactive security products, such as anti-viruses and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Ozone does not rely on constantly updating thousands of “bad behaviour’ signatures in order to keep up with the latest security threats.

Instead, Ozone enforces “good behaviour’ of both applications and users. Defining good behaviour is a much easier problem to solve, as both applications and users should only carry out a limited number of tasks.

Enforcing “good behaviour’ provides a much better security guarantee and represents a paradigm shift in the security field.

Ozone puts security managers back in control of their networks and computer systems, enabling them to decide what their users and applications are allowed to do.
