Herndon, VA (PRWEB) September 20, 2005
Secure Elements, Inc., a leader in enterprise vulnerability management and compliance risk reduction solutions, has joined Trusted Computing Group(TCG), a non-profit organization devoted to the creation of standards for strengthening computing platforms against software based attacks.
ÂTraditional security approaches have left computing platforms vulnerable to malicious attacks, virtual or physical theft, and loss,Â said Brian Berger, TCG marketing work group chair. ÂSecure Elements' expertise with active protection technologies for all classes of assets will be a valuable contribution in the development of future specifications and products in this area.Â
Secure Elements' C5 Enterprise Vulnerability Management Suite includes modules for asset, compliance, policy, and vulnerability management, and provides several policy enforcement points for endpoint access control. The company continues to drive innovation within the industry, and membership in TCG will help ensure those innovations will evolve in lockstep with security standards, minimizing barriers to adoption.
ÂSecure Elements is excited about joining other industry leaders in driving standards for trusted computing and security technologies,Â said Andrew Bove, vice president of development. ÂSecure and trusted computing dictates a solution that synthesizes asset management with vulnerability and compliance enforcement before enabling a trusted network connection. Given the adoption of wireless technologies and its affect on the pervasiveness of computing platforms at risk, industry leaders agree that supporting and adopting standards such as TCG are in the best interest of the marketplace.Â
More than 110 companies are current TCG members, including industry leaders such as Citrix Systems, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel Corporation, Foundstone (McAfee), Juniper Networks, MCI, Microsoft, Nokia, SafeNet, and Sun Microsystems and many leading mobile systems and services vendors. TCG has active groups for PCs, mobile devices, servers, the network, storage and peripherals.
