"A Fresh Approach to Network Security". Hackers, Crackers, Blaster, Sasser, Nimda, Code Red, Denial of Service, Distributed Denial of Service, Network Flood attack, "MafiaBoy", BadTrans, Back Orifice: Words and catchy names from the world of IT security that have been known to strike fear into those that are responsible for the smooth operation and availability of data networks.
Until now, defense of networks was primarily through installation of firewalls, intrusion detection systems, virus scanners and, of course, strong security rules and procedures. Although these established and proven methods have been essential to keep networks secure for quite some time, in reality, enterprises are still getting shut down by malicious acts.
Safe N Secure Technologies, manufacturerÂs agent for promoting latest information technology security appliances in the Asia-Pacific, through itÂs established Reseller channel to distribute V-Secure Technologies Intrusion Prevention System Â a smart appliance and the only one, with the ÂFuzzy LogicÂ, which that can protect even the network routers from hackers and also capable of stopping known and unknown attacks in Real-Time without any Signature updates. The latest release of V-Secure IPS also capable of doing Forensics and High Availability.
V-Secure believes that current network security products in the market have inherent limitations that allow hackers and crackers to continue to exploit many limitations such as: firewalls can be difficult to properly configure, and require constant updating by skilled personnel.
Intrusion detection systems generally detect malicious activities and report incursions, but their integration with firewalls and routers makes defeat of an attack in real time extremely problematic.
V-Secure Technologies has taken a different approach. They have developed a transparent network security appliance that can be easily installed outside of the firewall to investigate and block suspicious activities before they can become full blown attacks. Unlike other security products, the V-Secure IPS does not rely on a predefined database. Using sophisticated algorithms and "fuzzy logic," their V-Secure IPS Appliance (roughly the size of a VCR, and powered by embedded Motorola RISC processors) can detect and block network and application scanning attempts (a normal precursor to hacking attacks), defend against misuse of authorizations (such as password cracking attempts), mitigate denial of service attacks, and stop worm distribution methods.
V-Secure has focused on easy installation and ÂAdaptive Dynamic Smart FilteringÂ a key feature of V-Secure IPS is that it is a proactive defense mechanism that does not require human intervention to stop an attack. This is a big plus in organizations short on security expertise. However, the information produced by the device will provide valuable information where there is active monitoring and a higher level of security sophistication.
Early deployments in the USA and Israel were extremely successful. As a technology showcase, Vsecure was selected to provide protection for the web portal of the Israeli Olympic games ("Maccabiah"), a prime target of cyber attacks. The appliance allowed more than 2.5 million legitimate users to access streaming video, up to the minute statistics and in depth reporting on the games. It also blocked more than 20,000 attack attempts from more than 1,500 sources!
As the exclusive agents for Asia/Pacific, Safe N Secure Technologies is currently looking to introduce the V-Secure IPS to Asian enterprises.
