Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) December 8, 2005
Snipe Networks, a leading provider of user and network behaviour-based anomaly detection and mitigation (NBAD) solutions, today announced the commercial availability of the Snipe NetGuard network appliance suite to protect corporate networks against intrusions and vulnerability exploits caused by internal network users.
"The Intrusion Detection System (IDS) marketplace has evolved into Network Behaviour Anomaly Detection." said Erik Suppiger, Networking & Security Analyst for Pacific Growth Equities. "Snipe Networks has brought out an NBAD solution that adds the important focus on user behaviour and malicious mitigation actions."
The Snipe NetGuard network appliance suite provides corporations with the ability to trace anomalous behaviour and security policy violations back to individual employees whether the anomaly is network resource misuse, disruptive spyware, unauthorized access, theft of corporate information, identity spoofing, or Zero-Day worm and virus propagation, all without the use of known signatures. Snipe Networks is the only network security vendor to provide a NBAD solution that incorporates patent-pending user behaviour-based analysis technology to pin-point the offending user as well as forensic auditing to precisely provide insight into the malicious incident.
"Internal network security is an inherently complex problem because security incidents are often caused by trusted insiders - employees, consultants, contractors, or even business partners", said Xiaodong Lin, Chief Security Officer and Founder at Snipe Networks. "Corporate networks are inherently dynamic and traditional NBAD solutions that model overall network behaviour often miss subtle threat detections and also have a high rate of false positives. In order to effectively combat internal network threats, each user's behaviour must be profiled and monitored, as this important feature substantially increases the accuracy of incident detection."
Snipe NetGuard's patent-pending user's behavioural-based anomaly mitigation technology and wire-speed correlation engine provide IT administrators detailed visibility of their network users as well as allowing them to pinpoint precisely the source of any insider network misuse, identity spoofing, zero-day attacks, and spyware infestations that occur on their corporate network.
"As a publicly traded company and leader in security, Certicom values the need for greater protection inside our network," said Brian Morrison, Senior Network Administrator, Certicom Corp. (TSX: CIC) "The Snipe Network's NetGuard solution has given our IT staff visibility into user behaviours and enables them to better secure the network. This product is one more tool which we can use to meet compliance requirements."
