Made4Biz Security Inc announced today a trade-in plan for RSA’s SecureID

Each SecureID customer can switch their SecureID devices to IDentiWall while using their SecureID’s past investments as credit against the IDentiWall license fee.

Such trade-in is guaranteed to be financially compelling and technically superior.

The innovative trade-in plan makes sure that switching customers enjoy:

  • Better, newest security technology that protects its users against all latest attacks even if their computer is contaminated with malwares or even if their ID is exposed.
  • Wider security coverage, which includes not only two-factor authentication, but also combines transaction verification, anti-phishing, anti-farming, as well as breach attempt notification.
  • All platform coverage including Desktops, Tablets, Smartphone
  • VPN and SSL-VPN user authentication
  • E-Banking, m-Banking, e-Health, e-Government web application protection with special ‘application agnostic’ mode by which, not even one line of code needs to be changed.
  • Polite implementation including co-existence with SecureID for the transition period and built-in implementation risk elimination measures.
  • No physical devices to be distributed and yet out-of-the-box support for such token devices and smart-cards does exist.
  • Lowest TCO. This trade-in plan was designed to ensure cost savings for the whole duration of the IDentiWall usage.
  • Cloud or on-site implementation options are supported.

Athena Security Achieves OPSEC Certification from Check Point

Athena Security Inc., today announced that its Firewall Analysis solution, FirePAC, has achieved OPSEC™ (Open Platform for Security) certification from Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet. Through OPSEC certification, FirePAC supports Check Point’s Market-leading NG, NGX R65 and R70 based on the software blade architecture and delivers comprehensive analytics for maintaining always secure, always tuned and always compliant firewall infrastructure.

Athena Security Achieves OPSEC Certification from Check Point

FirePAC boosts the usability and security effectiveness of Check Point installations by delivering on these key requirements for network/security engineers:

Check Point Migration Support

• Dramatically accelerate the migration process from other vendors and ensure that the target policies are equivalent to the original. Athena FirePAC is the only solution that can analyze and compare the policies for behavioral differences and provide remedies for the errors introduced through the conversion process.

Comprehensive Risk Mitigation

• Identifies risks to critical hosts based on overly permissive rules or rules allowing dangerous services.

• Provides flexibility to define your own custom security zones and create new checks or modify existing checks to reflect unique business requirements.

• Takes into account what networks are reachable from each interface in the firewall based on ACLs, NATs, routing and anti-spoof settings to provide a more precise risk analysis.

Firewall Rule Cleanup and Optimization

• Finds every possible type of structural rule redundancy to find more rules for removal than any other product.

• FirePAC can also find all unused rules based on log history.

• Recommends optimal rule order that places the most used rules as far up as possible towards the top of the rule base without causing any disruptions to critical business services.

Rule/Object Search across your firewall inventory

• Finds all references to an object including parent and child relationships.

• Cuts through objects with multiple levels of membership hierarchies to pinpoint the services and addresses allowed or denied by a rule.

PCI Audit

• Produces automated PCI audit reports that go beyond a checklist for minimal compliance. FirePAC computes permitted traffic flows through the firewall to determine what is allowed to reach your credit cardholder data.

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

Athena Security announces the release of Firewall Browser, a free tool for searching Cisco, Check Point and Netscreen configurations that is powerful and flexible enough to support IT departments of all sizes and process requirements. Firewall browser is available as a free download with no limitations, user license restrictions or registration hurdles f r o m www.athenasecurity.net.

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.

Multifactor Secureauth For Remote Access Enables Enterprises To Become PCI Compliant Via Strong Authentication Of Their Remote Access Users

MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2 factor authentication, web application security and VPN Authentication solutions today announced the availability of SecureAuth 4.9.5 for VPN Authentication, a secure access solution addressing specific PCI compliance requirements for large enterprises.

The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) requires execution of various disciplines representing security standards, requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures for maintaining consistent data security on a global basis. PCI DSS requirement 8 and 8.5 state that users with computer access should be granted unique IDs and be authenticated accordingly. SecureAuth executes beyond the mandates of both requirements and addresses the concerns surrounding enterprise authentication for remote access users.

In conjunction with major VPN platforms, including Cisco ASA and Juniper SSLVPNs, MultiFactor SecureAuth is able to deliver a secure credential, mapped directly to the individual user. SecureAuth utilizes the enterprise’s already existing data store shared by the Juniper or Cisco network appliance; eliminating the need to create or replicate an additional data store.

“PCI DSS has specific requirements concerning remote access to controlled systems. The guidelines specifically make reference to the authentication mechanisms that SecureAuth utilizes to protect the resources that require PCI compliance.” says Craig Lund, CEO of MultiFactor Corporation. “In addition, multi-factor SecureAuth complies with all the administrative and logging provisions that PCI requires.”

SecureAuth, secure in administration, access, and logging; all of which are PCI DSS requirements, is ideal for financial and commercial enterprises looking to meet these guidelines with a secure, cost-effective solution. SecureAuth is advantageous to the enterprise, in that it is a self-contained dual factor authentication solution, providing user authentication, administration, and logging on the same appliance. The SecureAuth solution is a one-stop solution for enterprises seeking to meet PCI guidelines. For more information, please visit http://www.multifa.com
