Vigilar Announces Version 2.0 of Atlas Security-as-a-Service Solution

Latest Release Includes New Risk Management, Network Monitoring and Asset Tracking Capabilities

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2008) - Vigilar, a leading provider of information security solutions and services, today announced the new, version 2.0 of its ATLAS Security-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. To meet growing enterprise and mid-market demand for more holistic managed security offerings, the latest version includes key new functionality in the areas of risk management, network monitoring and asset tracking. The latest version of ATLAS also includes enhanced compliance audit support and ticketing and full device management functionality.

Securing IT assets has become a highly complex function, demanding significant expertise, infrastructure investment, and round-the-clock oversight just to keep up with the day-to-day tasks required to keep systems up to date and effective. Corporations are finding it harder and harder to achieve operational efficiency and keep their costs in line, as the ongoing management of systems continues to consume a greater portion of their time and resources.

The key new areas of functionality in ATLAS Version 2.0 include:

--  Identification of infrastructure assets, security issues and network
    changes
--  New change monitoring and management, including network state and
    traffic monitoring
--  Network vulnerability detection, including passive and active
    scanning, risk analysis and intrusion detection capabilities
--  Improved asset and license management, including licensing and
    subscription tracking of both network-based and non-network based assets
--  Managed Web Content Filtering, SPAM Filtering, Firewall and Bandwidth
    Management
--  Full management of security devices such as Firewalls, IDS and IPS
    devices
    

"As security devices and controls proliferate at an every-increasing pace, organizations are barely staying afloat on their security, compliance, and governance efforts," said James Fox, President and CEO of Vigilar. "In expanding our ATLAS SaaS offering, Vigilar is taking the next step and automating ever more of the tedious functions within the security lifecycle for organizations of every size. Our vision with ATLAS is to continue relieving a greater portion of day-to-day security burdens for our customers, enabling them to improve their security posture while lowering their overall costs.

ATLAS is delivered via five managed service modules, which eliminate the expense and hassle of purchasing and managing hardware and software that accompanies traditional on-premises solutions. The ATLAS solution can be purchased all together, or as individual modules, and includes:

--  Asset Identification, Prioritization and Management
--  Technical Support
--  Log Management
--  Authentication Management
--  Systems Maintenance, Monitoring and Management
