Boston, MA, United States, 2010/09/06 - CounterSnipe offers more bang for your buck by integrating MAC based network asset and change detection with its intrusion prevention network security management systems.
CounterSnipe, the leaders in developing “easy to deploy and manage”, surrounding asset knowledge based network security management software, APS (Active Protection Software), is pleased to announce the latest version, 4.0.3, which now includes always on MAC address based network asset and change detection.
CounterSnipe software offers complete protection from security threats with built in IDS/IPS, host identification, application and vulnerability discovery, correlation of attack to vulnerability data, and intelligent Alert Management. CounterSnipe systems are designed to detect and prevent against real and most relevant security violations.
The new version delivers enhanced network security management by discovering and monitoring any new networked assets (hosts) and alerting the security administrators about their presence. The system automatically tunes itself to start protecting these new assets from all relevant malicious attacks. The sophisticated alert management module has been rewritten to send email alerts on discovery of any new assets together with management of events generated by IDS/IPS policies.
The new release eliminates the need for security administrators to frequently analyze CounterSnipe systems for changes on the network, provides for a safeguard against unwanted hosts being connected to the network and provides immediate reporting, with detailed port analysis, about the newly found hosts for urgent responses.
“Our goal is to continue delivering more and more automated and easy to manage network security management systems. We understand that businesses do not necessarily have the resources to sit around browsing through reports, alerts and other data in order to go back and configure their security systems. CounterSnipe offers businesses automated, self tuning and always-on security management”, says Khirod Patra, CS Product Lead.
“Having spoken with some of our customers about the new systems, we are very excited about their responses as 4.0.3 provides them with the ability to always know what is on their network and always ensure that every new machine is fully scanned for known problems, we are very pleased with the developments at CounterSnipe”, says Ruud De Vries of Netsupport, a CounterSnipe European partner.
CounterSnipe latest release is immediately available both as site licence and pre-configured appliances from CounterSnipe’s trained and accredited resellers internationally. For further information or to test drive our systems please contact sales[.]countersnipe.com.
