SC Magazine Awards PFU iNetSec Smart Finder 5-Star Rating for Features, Ease of Use, Performance, Support and Value

Intrusion Prevention System Instantly Identifies and Isolates Previously Undetectable Attacks, Securing BYOD Networks

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 28, 2014) - iNetSec Smart Finder from PFU Systems Inc., a Fujitsu company and provider of network visibility, access control and security technology, has been awarded high honors by SC Magazine, one of the information security industry's leading news and product evaluation sources.

Featuring innovative features and functionality, iNetSec Smart Finder is the first comprehensive, easily-deployable endpoint visibility and network access solution integrating next-gen intrusion prevention system (IPS) features to automatically detect and immediately block advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks and remote access Trojans (RATs) malware. APTs and RATs are pernicious new threats designed to steal data from SMB and enterprise networks.

SC Magazine technology editor Peter Stephenson said, "The iNetSec Smart Finder from PFU systems is an excellent network access control system for organizations of any size. Don't let the Smart Finder's small size fool you, it is packed with functionality."

The review highlighted iNetSec Smart Finder's agentless policy-driven solution which makes it easy to deploy and transparent to endpoints, and its high-end security features like behavioral malware detection.

According to Stephenson, "All said and done, the iNetSec Smart Finder is a great buy...this product has tons of features that can usually only be found for twice the price."

iNetSec Smart Finder

Key features of the iNetSec Smart Finder include:

  • Endpoint visibility and access control - Discovers all wired and wireless devices on the network, including smartphones, tablets, Windows and Macintosh computers, printers, routers and other IP-based peripherals. This powerful combination allows IT to easily control and manage network access of unauthorized devices while applying a preventative security approach by allowing only approved devices on the network.
  • Applications management - Provides control over application usage within the company's network in order to prevent or closely control usage of applications with higher risk levels. IT can prohibit specific applications from specific internal subnets of the network.
  • Behavioral IPS with APT malware detection - Detects and immediately blocks APT attacks by behavior and RAT malware internally and not in-line to prevent data theft.
  • Agentless - No agent software is installed on the connected network devices, making iNetSec Smart Finder non-intrusive, and easily deployed with no software to manage or update.
  • Not in line - Rapid installation in less than two hours with no network disruption, no downtime and no bottlenecks, all with zero network latency.

PFU Systems reports that a majority of network security incidents originate within network firewalls. Endpoint visibility is the new perimeter and organizations need to focus more on internal network security.

The iNetSec Smart Finder is about the size of a wireless router and is ideal for medium size networks. The latest version of iNetSec Smart Finder is available immediately, starting at $6,995. For more information, please visit www.inetsecsmartfinder.com.
