E-Business Cyber-Vandalism Defense System Offered

E-business solutions company Tivoli Systems Inc. delivered Tivoli SecureWay Risk Manager, an e-business security app that helps defend companies against cyber-vandalism.

The app is a centralized risk management solution that enables organizations to centrally manage attacks, threats and exposures by correlating security information from firewalls, intrusion detectors, vulnerability scanning tools and other security checkpoints.

The company said the solution enables administrators to eliminate clutter such as false-positives, while quickly identifying real security threats. The solution implements automated countermeasures ensuring only authorized business partners, customers, suppliers, internal employees and others can access the networks, systems and applications within the e-business.

Tivoli said it tapped IBM Research technologies to bring state-of-the-art intrusion detection and network scanning tools into Tivoli SecureWay Risk Manager. The Intrusion detection engine detects the most recent denial of services attack tools: Trin00, TFN, Stacheldraht and TFN2k, as well as conventional attacks based on scans and floods, and it supports a wide variety of network protocols.

"As new forms of cyber-attacks emerge, e-businesses must address the business risks arising from them," said Carl Kessler, vice president and general manager of the Tivoli Security Business Unit. "To mitigate this threat, Tivoli is providing a solution backed by a team of IBM security professionals who are experienced in combating these types of attacks and able to assist customers with countermeasures, actions and containment."
