Anonymizer Launches New Enterprise Division and Products
San Diego, Calif. – November 9, 2004 – Anonymizer today announced a new Enterprise Division and unveiled its two flagship products—Anonymizer Enterprise Chameleon networked appliance and the Anonymizer Intelligence Chameleon service. Both solutions ensure secure and private Internet information access, data integrity, and protected communications using methods unique to Anonymizer technology.
“The Internet is a major source for research and competitive intelligence and our Chameleon platform is truly the only proactive IP address privacy and security solution for Enterprises on the market.” said John Roshala, vice president of Sales. “Today, organizations are increasingly discovering that when they go online their IP address exposes their organization to countless privacy and security breaches. The opposite of Anonymity is Exposure. A few years ago, nobody really worried about privacy on the Internet. Now with all the threats that prey online, we want organizations to be able to use the Internet to access the data they need while maintaining privacy and anonymity. Anonymizer’s new offerings achieve this for enterprises.”
Anonymizer Enterprise Chameleon is a plug-and-play network level appliance for an entire organization, select employees or groups. It masks a company’s IP address by providing a connection between the Enterprise’s network and Anonymizer’s Secure network utilizing VPN (virtual private network), technology which enables traffic randomization with approx. 2 Million Anonymizer users Domestic and International. Enterprise Chameleon is an enterprise class solution that supports high service levels, utilizing a dedicated, high-capacity network backbone for reliability, performance and redundancy.
Enterprise Chameleon is designed to support numerous enterprise activities, including:
– Legal or intellectual property research
– Trademark and brand protection
– Corporate intelligence, R&D
– Financial research, M&A
– Competitive or market research
– Anti-fraud, criminal investigations
Anonymizer Intelligence Chameleon is offered as a service, enabling enterprises to engage in Internet research, competitive intelligence gathering using automated web harvesting or Unstructured Data Management (UDM) tools. The product circumvents tactics such as Web site blocking, “spoofing,” and traffic analysis, and prevents IP address tracing, hacking or spamming. UDM, a $9 billion industry, enables companies to harness today’s vast amount of information by automating the process of acquiring, organizing, classifying and acting on the business-critical, unstructured information that is usually found in documents, presentations and Web pages.
“A common scenario for an enterprise has already emerged, where they will start with the Enterprise Chameleon to provide Internet protection for analysts and employees and then add-on the Intelligence Chameleon to provide the anonymity needed to access blocked sites and get accurate information. The solutions have rapidly gained traction with numerous Fortune 1000 companies, financial and legal institutions, Web analytic companies, portals and marketing organizations,” said Roshala.
