Athena's Firewall Browser Was Introduced At SANS Orlando 2010 To Over 1100 Attendees

Athena chose the SANS Orlando 2010 Conference to unveil the new free tool, and working with conference organizers, distributed Firewall Browser to over 1100 network and security engineers in attendance, an oversubscribed showing for one of the premier and most comprehensive security training conferences. Just within 24 hours of announcing the tool, an additional 480 engineers downloaded the product directly f r o m Athena’s website.

Firewall Browser offers capabilities that network/security engineers will want to consult every time a change request is made or whenever troubleshooting on firewalls becomes necessary. The tool immensely eases the challenges to determine if the change is already covered by other rules, understand the impact of modifying objects, identify how existing conventions can be reused to keep the configurations manageable, or the right location for adding the new rule so service availability is maintained to critical hosts.

Firewall Browser was developed in the spirit of other legendary free and open source network tools like Nessus or Snort, based on the value that functionally-rich non-commercial alternatives should exist for practitioners who need access to reliable solutions for real environments. By releasing the Firewall Browser for free, Athena is shifting dynamics away f r o m vendors and giving the power to users to pay only for solutions where they find even greater productivity gains, technology advancements and complimentary product offerings.

“We selected one of our most popular features to offer a free tool. This is not throw-away functionality, but rather significantly useful. We believe this is the right way to attract customers to the additional tools available f r o m Athena,” said Adarsh Arora, CEO of Athena Security.

Athena offers infrastructure analysis tools that identify the precise relationship between firewall rules and network services in a single device or across a complex network.
