Reflex Security Augments Intrusion Prevention Systems With Insightix's Unique Network Discovery

Advanced Network Discovery Provides Enhanced Monitoring and Control of Devices Across Entire Network Infrastructure

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 19, 2007 -- At the InfoSec Conference, Reflex Security, pioneer and innovator in intrusion prevention systems (IPS), today announced shipment of a powerful add-on module to its flagship Enhanced Reflex Command Center incorporating network discovery technology from Insightix, developer of complete, real-time and agentless network discovery and network access control (NAC) solutions.

Insightix Discovery obtains a complete inventory of all network elements, including their location and associated properties, and provides an accurate physical network topology map of the entire enterprise LAN. The contextual information obtained by Insightix Discovery allows IT professionals to successfully plan a range of critical IT initiatives, ensuring they are accurately rolled out across their entire IT infrastructures. Insightix Discovery offers additional value by significantly reducing the response times to IT helpdesk inquires, asset tracking, performance issues, policy violations and security events.

By integrating network discovery and intrusion prevention, security administrators are given better control over their networks. When new devices, applications and operating systems are discovered on the network, the IPS can take the necessary enforcement action to allow or block those systems.

The new module's functionality is a further enhancement to the Enhanced Reflex Command Center (ERCC), the industry's first enterprise security management solution to combine all of the following into a single appliance:

--  IPS Control and Management
--  Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
--  IP to ID Identity Management
--  Identity-based Network Admissions and Post-Admissions Control
--  Network Access Control of Applications and Devices Operating in the
    Network
--  Network Discovery
    
The Reflex Security Enhanced Reflex Command Center delivers a powerful, centralized configuration and management console, comprehensive reporting tools, and ease-of-use in a unified solution for efficiently managing and preventing network attacks. The Enhanced Reflex Command Center's real-time and forensic reports deliver actionable information and won't overwhelm IT management with cryptic or redundant data. Efficient 3D graphical displays of attack data make for quick and easy navigation. Intuitive charting and plain-language explanations make it easy to understand network activity and events. This helps avoid false alarms, document compliance and make an informed security response

"Customers have come to us for help with asset management and we believe that IPS serving as the enforcement point makes the most sense due to its content enforcement nature. Upon discovery of a new application such as a rogue application, our IPS systems can dynamically add policy to block that application," said Hezi Moore, founder and CTO of Reflex Security. "Integrating Insightix's powerful network discovery capabilities into our IPS systems creates a compelling solution to detect, manage and enforce security in enterprise networks."

The Enhanced Reflex Command Center with network discovery will debut in public for the first time in demos at Reflex Security's booth (Booth # 301) at InfoSec in Orlando, Florida -- March 19-21, 2007.
