CA Bolsters Network Security and Reduces Risk With AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer

IT Management Software Leader Automates Firewall Audit and Analysis

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - AlgoSec today announced that CA, Inc., one of the world's largest IT management software companies, has selected the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer™ (AFA) to automate time-consuming, manual firewall and router audit and analysis.

By implementing AFA, CA is streamlining these essential security tasks and helping to ensure consistent implementation of security policies across its enterprise computing environment. This will enable CA to reduce risk while allowing staff time to be allocated to more strategic projects.

"Security best practices require that we diligently audit our sophisticated multi-tier firewall implementation," said William Welch, director of IT Security at CA. "With the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer, we can fulfill this requirement with greater accuracy and at much lower cost."

More than 200 enterprises worldwide are using AlgoSec's software solutions to track, log and flag changes to firewall configurations, and send alerts to key team members if the changes alter their enterprise's risk profile or add to its operational clutter, including unused and duplicated rules, slowing down performance. In addition to ensuring firewall security and optimizing performance, the advanced change tracking and risk assessment features enable enterprises to adhere to industry and corporate regulations. AlgoSec also offers automatically populated compliance reports for PCI DSS, SOX and ISO 27001.

"We are pleased that a leading IT management company like CA has selected the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer to reduce risk and minimize clutter by automating their firewall and router audit process," said Aimee Rhodes, vice president of marketing at AlgoSec. "With the AFA in place, CA's security and IT personnel can instantly gain critical insight into their firewall and router configurations, allowing them to remain secure and compliant while optimizing their operations."
