ISS Releases Latest Version of RealSecure

Internet Security Systems (ISS) Tuesday rolled out an upgraded version of its RealSecure security application.

RealSecure 3.1 is designed to automatically detect and respond to unauthorized network and computer systems activity. RealSecure identifies intrusions and responds in real time by recording the activity, sending instantaneous e-mail or pager alarms, reconfiguring network devices such as firewalls, and terminating the unauthorized connection.

New features include updated surveillance tools, as well as user-defined attack signatures, advanced security policy editing, asset management and organization, response tuning and global management and self monitoring integrity assurance. It is designed to run on Solaris 7 in addition to support for Windows NT, Solaris SPARC and Solaris X86.

"ISS' intrusion detection system is a vital component of e-business, ensuring the data integrity and availability critical to organizations' e-commerce and computing infrastructures," said Tom Noonan, president and chief executive officer, ISS.

"As security threats continue to mount daily, ISS' established best-of-breed technology and expertise ensures that our customers' online assets are safeguarded with the leading suite of solutions for around-the-clock information protection."
