CyberGuard Announces Central Management Solution to Support Entire Suite of Enterprise Network Security Products
Bracknell, UK, February 14, 2005 – CyberGuard Corporation (Nasdaq: CGFW), a global provider of security solutions that protect the critical components of the largest and most complex information networks for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced the release of Global Command Center 3.0, a significant enhancement to its enterprise-class central policy management system that enables customers to implement and manage security policy across CyberGuard’s entire core-to-edge product suite from one central location.
An enterprise security policy for large enterprises often involves hundreds of security policy rules deployed across a fleet of firewalls. Global Command Center addresses this challenge by enabling customers to update policies in real-time as threats change, and ensure that these changes are applied consistently across the entire network.
“As customers continue to deploy our core-to-edge security solutions throughout the enterprise, it was essential for us to develop a centralized management tool that could support any CyberGuard product,” said Pat Clawson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, CyberGuard. “Global Command Center delivers a cohesive, integrated security management solution for organizations to proactively manage disparate and rapidly changing security demands across the network. It will deliver major cost efficiencies for our customers.”
Global Command Center offers comprehensive support for CyberGuard’s enterprise-class TSP Appliances, as well as centralized management capabilities for the company’s Webwasher, Classic and SG product lines. Global Command Center builds upon an already robust set of central policy management tools by delivering:
* Centralized Reporting and Monitoring – Global Command Center improves network “uptime” by making it easier for technicians, network administrators and security administrators to work together, thereby improving management efficiency, reducing overhead, and lowering operating costs.
* Report Generation for Compliance Purposes – Regulatory requirements and potential investigations place the burden on the organization to maintain accurate and easily accessible reports. Global Command Center delivers real-time report generation for activity occurring throughout the communications stream.
* A Powerful Standard Operating Environment – Global Command Center is powered by CyberGuard’s hardened operating environment, found across the company’s entire line of solutions. This translates into improved security for customers.
* Patch Management – Providing centralized software updates across CyberGuard’s product lines reduces network administration costs and improves security.
