Netcool for Security Management

Micromuse has released Netcool for Security Management, a solution that provides integration with TruSecure’s vulnerability feed information for greater visibility of IT security breaches and overall risk to the business. The solution is ideal for enterprises, banking, finance, government and service providers. Combining security event data and vulnerability data allows organisations to take greater control over identifying and managing security threats, and improves their ability to address and avoid potential violations in realtime, according to the company. The Netcool solution collects, consolidates and de-duplicates information about security events and correlates this data with known vulnerabilities from TruSecure’s vulnerability information database in realtime. Integration with TruSecure’s database of known vulnerabilities and malicious code enables operations staff to monitor emerging threats, identify the severity of incoming security alerts, and access workflow policies and critical information to resolve problems quickly. Platforms supported include Sun Solaris, Microsoft Windows, IBM AIX and Red Hat Linux. It will integrate with Micromuse’s partner TruSecure’s products. For a list of distributors, contact Micromuse.

RRP: Starts from $US90,000.

WatchGuard Firebox X

WatchGuard’s Firebox X line of security appliances is designed for the specific requirements of SMEs. It combines firewall, VPN, application layer security, intrusion prevention functionality, spam blocking, Web filtering and authentication in one appliance. Activated via a software license key, the model upgrade allows SMEs to scale their existing Firebox X security appliances without costly and time-consuming hardware replacements, the company said. In addition to model upgrade capability, WatchGuard is releasing a three-port upgrade option for the Firebox X that doubles the amount of active network ports from three to six on any of the four models in the line. This allows organisations to use the Firebox X as both a perimeter security device and to protect different user groups and devices within the internal network infrastructure. Firebox X appliances and add-on services are available through WatchGuard distributors including Firewall Systems, Ingram Micro and Lan Systems.

RRP: Firebox X model upgrades are available from $1560 (to upgrade from Firebox X500 to X700) to $6429 (to upgrade from Firebox X500 to X2500). The optional three-port upgrade (which includes high availability capability) is also available immediately for a suggested price of $955.
