Redspin Launches Jetmetric: Network Security Assessment Tools Web Portal

CARPINTERIA, CA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2009) - Redspin, Inc. is proud to announce the launch of a spin-off company, Jetmetric, a network security assessment tools Web portal at

"Jetmetric was born from the realization that once-a-year security audits don't always catch network security problems before they can do some serious damage," said John Abraham, Redspin's CEO. "We want to put the same tools that auditors use straight into the hands of the IT professionals who most need them."

The security assessment tools on the Website will be regularly updated to reflect current network threats and problems. The starting lineup, available now, includes firewall analysis, Windows Group Policy analysis, and Website SQL injection testing.

"Firewalls and Group Policies are always changing, so those are basic tools that we'll always have available. An SQL injection attack is the nasty trick that hackers are using right now, so that's the testing tool that we have up there today," said Abraham. "Whatever comes along tomorrow, we'll be ready with a new tool."

The site is set up as a Software-as-a-Service portal, and is offered on a subscription basis. "We thought about selling our tools one at a time, but we wanted to offer a complete solution. We also didn't want to make our customers have to constantly upgrade, or buy new tools each time they are released. With a subscription, the latest and greatest will always be at our users' fingertips."

Jetmetric was spun-off from Redspin, Inc., a security audit firm with experience at hundreds of financial institutions, casinos, and other businesses who have a serious stake in making sure that their networks are secure. "When you combine that with our team of righteous computer geeks," said Abraham, "I think you've found the perfect place to help keep your systems safe."
