Caveo Systems Extends AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer's™ Global Reach

Caveo Systems and AlgoSec Partner to Deliver Firewall Operations and Security Risk Management Solution to Enterprise Market in Ireland

RESTON, VA and DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwire - December 19, 2007) - AlgoSec, the leading provider of firewall operations and security risk management solutions, and Caveo Systems, an Ireland-based network and security services provider, today announced a strategic partnership. This alliance will leverage Caveo Systems' proven track record among enterprises to extend the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer (AFA) in the region.

Caveo Systems joins AlgoSec partners across the globe who are providing enterprises with the AFA to receive unparalleled visibility, analysis and intelligence into their firewall configurations to easily audit, manage and mitigate their exposure to risk while optimizing IT operations.

"We are delighted to be able to offer the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer to our clients as it is the most comprehensive solution for enterprise firewall management," said Brian See, Chief Technology Officer at Caveo Systems. "The AFA is the ideal tool for our clients, many of whom have complex firewall environments often times using multiple vendors, including Check Point, Juniper and Cisco. Our clients will benefit from the AFA's ability to allow them to maximize their firewall operations, remain compliant with industry standards and minimize risk. Whether our clients are migrating servers, converting from one firewall vendor to another, making a rule change or auditing their configurations to ensure they match policy, the AFA ensures they can do this quickly, automatically and comprehensively."

The AFA's continuous automated audit works offline. It is a non intrusive and easy to deploy and use software solution. It allows security and IT network operations members to query firewall configurations prior to implementing changes, such as firewall conversion projects where an enterprise opts to migrate from one vendor to another, to ensure business continuity and overall desired results. It also offers "what if" analyses to view what impact a change will have on an organization's operation and security posture. AFA supports the major enterprise platforms including: Check Point (FireWall-1 and Provider-1 on Solaris, Nokia, SecurePlatform, Alteon, Crossbeam and Windows), Cisco firewalls (PIX, ASA and FWSM), Cisco routers and Juniper Netscreen.

"We are excited about our partnership with Caveo Systems as it will broaden AlgoSec's already strong market penetration in Europe," said Bruno Weinberger, AlgoSec VP Sales EMEA. "Partnering with key IT network infrastructure and security consultants and integrators such as Caveo System is key for us as it allows us to reinforce the increasing momentum we are experiencing for our firewall management solutions across leading enterprises in all sectors."
