iboss Network Security Launches FireSphere at Gartner Symposium / ITxpo 2014

Robust Solution Significantly Reduces the Impact of Network Infections

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - GARTNER SYMPOSIUM/ITxpo -- iboss Network Security today announced from Gartner Symposium / ITxpo 2014 the general availability of FireSphere, the most advanced APT defense solution that continuously monitors for infections already on a network in order to decrease time from infection to detection.

With a dramatic increase in data breaches and greater sophistication of hacking methods, today's businesses must go beyond blocking threats to mitigate the malware already on the network. Using integrated Threat-SIEM components, FireSphere gives IT administrators zero second threat visibility including when malware first entered the network, the devices infected, how it spread and historical data on previous infections. This equips administrators to rapidly detect infections, respond to outbreaks and ultimately minimize dwell time and overall cost of infections.

FireSphere is the only solution on the market that combines continuous infection monitoring, baselining anomaly detection, behavioral sandboxing and an integrated Threat-SIEM console. Designed for IT departments at even the most complex, distributed enterprises, FireSphere delivers its insights through a CISO Dashboard. By providing a centralized view of an enterprise's security standing, FireSphere allows IT administrators to drill down and conduct further analysis in real-time to make informed decisions.

"Preventing 100 percent of malware is unrealistic. Businesses need to expand their security posture from solely blocking threats to proactively detecting and responding to incidents," said Paul Martini, CEO of iboss Network Security. "With FireSphere, we are equipping IT with the detection, investigation and forensics tools needed to operate in today's threat landscape. No other security vendor offers such a full suite of capabilities." 

Key features of iboss FireSphere include:

  • Continuous infection monitoring: Monitors the full Web stream so IT can detect infections in progress and respond before damage is done
  • Network baselining: Establishes normal baselines of activity and applies analytics to spot anomalies
  • Device quarantine: Contains the spread of infections by network scanning for infected machines and immediately quarantining devices that are harboring malware or engaging in risky behavior
  • Behavioral sandboxing: Detects, isolates and dissects APTs, evasive malware, zero-day attacks and polymorphic viruses that signatures alone cannot block
  • Intrusion prevention: Combines content aware data inspection, DNS scanning and SSL anomaly detection to find intrusion attempts and block them in real-time
  • Blended signature and heuristic antivirus: Uses malware feeds from a variety of proprietary and best-of-breed sources to deliver continuously updated details on emerging malware

iboss' patented technology protects organizations from APTs, targeted attacks and data loss with its innovative Web Security, Mobile Security and FireSphere advanced APT defense solutions. The iboss FireSphere solution is available now. For more information, visit iboss Network Security at Booth #645, Gartner Symposium/ITxpo on October 5-9, 2013.
