NeuralIQ to Exhibit at Symantec Government Symposium 2010

NeuralIQ to Demonstrate How Their Newly Launched Network Security Appliance, Event Horizon™, Uses Real-Time Intelligence About Breaches to Fortify Existing Security Products

KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwire - June 18, 2010) -  NeuralIQ will appear at this year's Symantec Government Symposium to show government information security leaders how NeuralIQ's Event Horizon uses real-time intrusion intelligence to fortify existing security infrastructure against targeted attacks, unknown malware and persistent attackers.

The symposium will take place on Tuesday, June 22, at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C.

At booth #15, NeuralIQ will conduct live demonstrations of Event Horizon to illustrate how it detects, captures and analyzes breaches to produce countermeasures for attacks that elude enterprise security systems. Attendees will have the opportunity to see how Event Horizon™

  • detects breaches even if they employ customized methods and malware;
  • reveals how attackers take control of secure systems;
  • records what attackers do when they think they are in control;
  • exposes attackers' encrypted communication;
  • generates timelines and shell session videos of attacks;
  • provides countermeasures for existing security systems, such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems, to immediately halt breaches and inoculate the entire network from repeat attacks.

"Off-the-shelf security products are maintained to stop known or suspicious threats, but attackers have repeatedly demonstrated their capacity to invent new methods and malware for targeted attacks," said Craig Husa, President and CEO of NeuralIQ. "Symantec has provided an excellent forum for us to show how Event Horizon's real-time intelligence optimizes existing security products to stop the threats that are targeted to specific organizations."

Symantec Government Symposium is an annual event that convenes government IT, security and business professionals to discuss imminent challenges and opportunities related to sharing critical information among public sector agencies -- as well as with the private sector and citizens -- while protecting sensitive data and complex IT infrastructures. Howard Schmidt, President Barack Obama's recently appointed cyber security coordinator, will present this year's keynote address.
