Bradford Networks' Network Sentry/Analytics Service Now Hosted in Ireland to Support European Data Protection Reform

Cloud-Based Security Service Now Hosted on Amazon Web Services in Both the US and Ireland to Support International Demand

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2014) - Bradford Networks™, the leading provider of rapid threat response solutions, today announced that has expanded its Network Sentry/Analytics service to support its European customers and the European data protection reform regulations. In addition to its US-based service, Network Sentry/Analytics is now hosted in Ireland via Amazon Web Services. Network Sentry/Analytics is the only solution that correlates network and endpoint information with threat indicators, bridging the silos of security information to simplify and accelerate cyber threat investigations.

Countless organizations have suffered the consequences of data loss as cyber threats become increasingly sophisticated and dangerous. The European parliament is addressing these threats by moving data protection reform from a directive to a regulation. By hosting the Network Sentry/Analytics service in Ireland via Amazon Web Services, Bradford Networks can now provide its European customers with peace of mind that data is protected and compliant with the new regulations.

"Cyber threats know no borders and as governments worldwide look to protect businesses and data with new data protection regulations, it is our mission to support those efforts," said Charlie McAlister, managing director EMEA, Bradford Networks. "There is a surge in demand for the network intelligence Network Sentry/Analytics provides to help companies improve their security responsiveness. By supporting the European data protection regulations we are able to provide our European-based customers with a complete solution for rapid threat response and enable them to prevent, isolate and contain threats in real time."

Network Sentry/Analytics provides full visibility into network activity. The solution analyzes long-term network connection data collected by Network Sentry, the company's flagship network access control (NAC) solution. During security reviews, risk assessments, and threat investigations, Network Sentry/Analytics provides a unique look-back on the state of the network and every connection that was established. This intelligence, correlated with threat indicators, helps businesses prevent and eliminate backdoors on their network.

Network Sentry/Analytics is deployed on a highly scalable Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) hosting platform in the US and in Ireland and is generally available. All Bradford Networks customers who have deployed Network Sentry version 5 and higher can leverage Network Sentry/Analytics.
