Wepa, Westerra and others influence the new release of customer driven feature rich CounterSnipe Intrusion Prevention Software

Boston, MA, Mar. 22 2016: CounterSnipe Systems, a leader in developing “easy to deploy and manage”, Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDS/IPS) network security software, is pleased to announce the availability of the V9.0 Active Protection System.

CounterSnipe APS V9.0 includes the latest release of Suricata, a multi-threading IDS engine that performs high speed data inspection and rule matching for accurate detection of intrusion and malware. V9.0 includes many utilities such as: scheduled scanning, asset grouping, and enhanced alert management, in order to minimize false alerting.

CounterSnipe APS V9,0 also includes some key features requested by current and prospective customers (Wepa and Westerra), including an automated baseline construct and MAC-based asset control. The new features were combined with the latest Suricata engine and extensive IDS rule set to offer greater flexibility in deployments with Intrusion Prevention.

The end of 2015 included the release of CounterSnipe sensors for AWS. The sensors were designed to monitor single and multiple local interfaces for all network access, to and from the AWS server, and to report those logs back to a CounterSnipe Threat Management Console (TMC).

“2015 was the most successful year in the history of CounterSnipe,” said Amar Rathore, SVP Business. “One of the driving factors for such success has been our ability to deliver customer-requested features. We would like to thank our customers and prospects for their input to our goal of staying ahead of the market in software-based network and server security solutions."

“Wepa uses a blend of cloud services and physical hardware to provide the highest possible uptime for our customers,” said Chris Hawkins, Server Team Manager at Wepa, Inc. “Securing all those servers is a big challenge, but CounterSnipe made the Intrusion Detection portion of it easy. Our perimeter security is world class and thanks to the enhancements made in this latest release, the Suricata rule updates will only take seconds for us to deploy. CounterSnipe’s responsiveness is really keeping us a step ahead of our competition."
