TriGeo Network Security Industry's First to Bridge the Gap Between Rich Functionality and Affordable Security Event Management (SEM) Solutions
Protects Entire Network Environment -- From the Perimeter to the Desktop -- With a Comprehensive, Integrated Solution for Under $20k
POST FALLS, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 13-10-2003 --
TriGeo Network Security (www.trigeo.com),
the pioneer and leader of Active Security Environment Management
solutions for securing small- and medium-sized enterprise networks, today
announces the availability of Contego V 2.1, which automates,
consolidates, normalizes and correlates security events across the entire
security environment -- from the perimeter to the desktop. Contego sets a
new industry precedent for enterprise-class security coverage with its rich
functionality and affordable solution for small- and mid-sized businesses
(SMBs) who face the same network security challenges as large multinational
corporations, but struggle with dramatically fewer resources.
The key benefits of Contego V 2.1 are:
-- Log Filtering, Aggregation and Normalization
-- Coverage from the perimeter to the desktop
-- Active Response and Auto Notification
-- Bundled IDS
-- Rapid Deployment, with zero downtime
-- Regulatory Compliance and Audit assistance
-- True 24/7 network security coverage, with limited staff and minimal
"With the perimeter guarded by layers of sophisticated systems, network
attacks are moving to the desktop," said Michelle Dickman, CEO and
President of TriGeo Network Security. "Consider this analogy: The front
door is locked, and the back window is open via web access, VPN, and more.
Contego is the first and only SEM solution that delivers enterprise-level
security in a simple, intuitive application for under $20,000."
"Drowning in log data, facing increasing regulatory pressures, and trying
to survive with limited staff and a dwindling budget, small to medium-sized
businesses are clamoring for reliable, affordable network security," said
Dan Keldsen, analyst with the Delphi Group. "Unfortunately, sophisticated
security management solutions with robust,
real-time features traditionally come with a hefty price tag and have
previously been available only to Fortune 1000 companies. Contego's ability
to tie into a variety of security solutions such as firewalls, anti-virus
solutions, and IDS, as well as their own Secure Point of Presence (SPOP)
software agents, offers a comprehensive solution that actually covers the
ground that they claim."
Actively Responds to Threats
Unlike competitive solutions that "play catch" through passive integration
and reactive measures, our solution proactively responds to security
threats -- before, during, after a security event occurs -- through a
unique feature called "active response." After defining which events are in
need of an active response, Contego responds in
real-time -- blocking an IP address, disabling an account, quarantining a
workstation from the rest of the network or shutting down a system. Active
notification delivers real-time, automatic notification of security events
via cell phone, pager or email -- 24/7. Because active notification
includes a detailed description of the event, clients can quickly assess
situations and take immediate action to actively secure their entire
Solves Information Overload
Each security event generates log files of varying degrees of complexity.
Translating these into understandable information is near impossible -- and
certainly not in a real-time capacity. IT managers in this environment are
simply overwhelmed with data and the "guesswork" to manually correlate
events across disparate systems. Contego's normalization and real time
analysis turns the raw data into usable information.
Meets Regulatory Challenges
Now more than ever, organizations must meet industry-specific regulatory
and compliance requirements such as HIPAA (healthcare), Gramm-Leach-Bliley
Act (financial), and more. Auditors are asking to see how log data is
managed, what response is taken to a security breach, how an institution
controls data access, and much more. With reporting requirements tighter
than ever before, failing an audit can be both expensive and disastrous to
an organization's health. With Contego, reporting and regulatory compliance
are a snap.
