State of Colorado Deploys StillSecure Strata Guard

Leading IDS/IPS a Core Component of Statewide Network Infrastructure

SUPERIOR, CO--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - StillSecure®, provider of secure network infrastructure software, today announced that the State of Colorado is deploying StillSecure Strata Guard®, the company's intrusion detection/prevention solution (IDS/IPS), as a key component of the State's security architecture.

The State of Colorado previously outsourced IDS/IPS to a managed service provider (MSP). However, to create a holistic and integrated approach to networking and security, the State decided to bring IDS/IPS in house and to align it with other statewide initiatives.

Specific requirements for the new system included ease-of-use, scalability, and a distributed architecture with centralized management capabilities. The State of Colorado purchased Strata Guard GigE and Strata Guard Enterprise appliances in order to deploy IPS at the network perimeter and then follow-up with a statewide roll-out. Strata Guard's Multi-node manager enables the State to centrally administer, manage, and report on all Strata Guard instances.

"IDS is a fundamental component of our security posture," said Mark Weatherford, Chief Information Security Officer, State of Colorado. "StillSecure met all of our technical requirements for procurement including price point and ease of deployment. Most importantly, they have been extremely responsive in addressing our technical concerns as we implement this enterprise solution."

"StillSecure has built long-lasting relationships with Federal, State and local government agencies due to high quality, cost-effective solutions," said Alan Shimel, Chief Strategy Officer at StillSecure. "We understand the important role that network security plays in keeping our country safe and are honored to be supporting the State of Colorado in this endeavor."
