Intrusion-detection products unveiled
IntruVert Networks this week will unveil a new line of intrusion-detection products. The company's IntruShield analyzes network traffic running at up to 2 gigabits/sec, looking for anomalies or patterns that might indicate potential security problems, such as denial-of-service attacks.
IntruShield 4000 serves large-scale networks, either by analyzing all data on the network or by analyzing incoming traffic only.
IntruShield 2600, for medium to large networks, monitors traffic at multiple points. It also supports OC-3 connections for customers who want to deploy it on their networks' perimeters.
Security management project launched
ArcSight, a security management software vendor, has teamed with a Washington, D.C.-based security research group to study how organizations are dealing with the increasing volume of security alerts being generated by network and security products.
The SANS Institute will launch the Enterprise Security Management project to explore solutions for integrating security information and improving the performance of security solutions.
BEA Systems releases application security
BEA Systems Inc. last week introduced software designed to make it easier for systems administrators to incorporate security tools without changing the underlying code of their critical applications.
The BEA WebLogic Server 7.0 includes features for controlling access to applications, verifying the identity of users, developing an audit trail, and protecting applications and data via a public-key infrastructure.
