Lumeta Announces IPsonar 5.4
Lumeta Corp. recently announced the latest release of IPsonar which now includes Enhanced Perimeter Discovery (EPD).
IPsonar discovers the comprehensive network perimeter and clearly demarcates between the “known” and “unknown” in your network. With its patented leak detection and network discovery capabilities, IPsonar detects, identifies, maps and analyzes every device on the network, outlining a clear picture of the first line of defense in network security. By verifying the behavior of firewalls and other network devices, IPsonar identifies gaps in perimeter defenses -- or “leaks” -- that compromise network security and put the enterprise at risk.
“Because of increased enterprise threats such as APTs and rogue insiders, as well as smarter malware, we dramatically improved IPsonar’s detection capabilities in our latest release by incorporating Enhanced Perimeter Discovery”, said Michael Markulec, CEO of Lumeta Corporation. “By providing real-time visibility into the edge of the Enterprise network and identifying potentially dangerous activity, IPsonar provides greater security and assurance that potential leaks are stopped before they can be exploited.”
As the scope of the network perimeter continues to increase through mobile devices, VPN, and other technologies, traditional methods for identifying the perimeter of the network are no longer enough because they will be blocked or thwarted by more sophisticated users and devices. Enhanced Perimeter Discovery (EPD) uses a targeted approach to identify devices on the network that have the ability to pass traffic out of the enterprise and into unauthorized or even dangerous networks. Often these devices are not traditional routers, but enterprise servers, workstations and other systems that are targeted for exploitation by attackers and malware. When these systems forward traffic to unknown, unauthorized or untrusted networks,
IPsonar’s EPD immediately detects and alerts on the complete context of the network conversation, including details on the device or host and the addresses and networks connected to, enabling an unprecedented view of potential holes in your network perimeter.
