iboss Network Security Tracks Data Flow to Predict and Prevent Corporate Security Threats

February 24, 2014



SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 -- iboss Network Security, a leading provider of network security solutions, today announced availability of the industry's first advanced behavioral analysis of data flows to identify and mitigate network security threats. The new functionality, built into iboss Network Security's Secure Web Gateway platform, delivers unmatched visibility, which allows enterprises to detect threats through anomalies in data movement in and out of the network.

By honing in on data flows instead of file behavior, enterprises with complex networks can expose deviations from existing data flow benchmarks. Once detected, these anomalies in data movement act as early indicators of potential threats to the corporate network. This advanced approach fills the time gap between a new threat being introduced and file malware signatures being created. As a result, organizations can shorten response time, reduce management overhead for securing network resources and prevent incidents before they cause damage or data loss.

"Cybersecurity threats are constantly getting more sophisticated. We recognized an industry need for a better way to pinpoint and address potential threats," said Paul Martini, CEO and cofounder of iboss Network Security. "By tracking data movement, our customers can address critical security concerns without the limitations that legacy solutions possess."

Legacy security systems are not sufficient to defend corporate networks from advanced threats, especially with the advent of social media, BYOD and mobile workflow in the workplace. According to Forrester's "Understand the State of Data Security and Privacy Report," internal threats in the form of inadvertent data misuse are a leading cause of data breaches. This is exasperated by the lack of employee awareness on security policies for merging social and mobile channels. While legacy systems are filled with gaps from emerging channels and only detect threats after an organization has incurred damage or data loss, iboss profiles data flows to detect new and emerging threats proactively.

The benefits of behavioral data analysis of data flows include:

•Comprehensive monitoring of data movement across 131,000 ports •Real-time identification of suspicious data movement •GeoMapping technology to pinpoint location of threat

The iboss Secure Web Gateway combines:

•Web Security (HTTP/S) •Scanning Inside SSL •Layer 7 Application Management DPI/Heuristics/Signatures •BYOD Management - Authentication, Bandwidth, High Risk Quarantine •Mobile Security - On/Off Premise Security •Bandwidth Throttling and QoS •Integrated Threat & Event Console

The iboss platform and console are available now. For a demo, please contact sales@iboss.com.
