New Voyence Release Bridges Gap between Network and Security Configuration Management.

New Security Features Include Cisco PIX and ASA Firewall Configuration Management and Improved TACACS or RADIUS Support

BOSTON -- Voyence, a pioneer in automated change and configuration management solutions, today announced a new release of VoyenceControl that bridges the gap between network and security devices. The new enhancements reduce time needed to identify potential IT security breaches by unifying network and security device configuration management into a single VoyenceControl console.

"Voyence is now bringing the same robust level of network change and configuration management to the security side," said Dennis Drogseth, vice president, Enterprise Management Associates. "These new features enable more efficient and granular control of change management - across a heterogeneous group of devices and - all from a single pane-of-glass view."

Darren Orzechowski, vice president of marketing, further elaborates on the importance of Voyence's new security enhancements, "The lines between network and security management are rapidly blurring, as IT managers are being tasked with managing risk across the entire enterprise, including both traditional network devices, as well as visibility into security requirements such as access authentication, firewall configurations and patch management. To address these management concerns, Voyence developed deep integrations with leading security device providers such as Cisco and Juniper, to help strengthen security procedures by quickly identifying misconfigured firewalls, tracking administrative access and rapidly closing security holes left open to unauthorized personnel."

Voyence is uniquely positioned to manage the security environment with enhanced, change and configuration management tools that enable network administrators to leverage the existing investment in TACACS or RADIUS systems for device access. The new enhancements allow deeper visibility into these systems to report on all access control and accounting instances by allowing:

* Change jobs to be executed with the scheduling or approving user's credentials.

* Change jobs to be executed with a "one-time" use credential set.

* Administrators to define the credential scheme that will be used on a global or per network basis.

Additional VoyenceControl security enhancements include:

* New device coverage for Cisco PIX Firewall version 7 and Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) gear.

* Improved support for LDAP authentication mechanisms.

"The new security reporting and accounting features join Voyence's existing support for sensitive information masking and secure device communications (SSHv2, SNMPv3 and SCP), making VoyenceControl the best choice to shore-up security devices with change and configuration management," Orzechowski added.

In addition, Voyence's new release also expands support of its industry-leading 1,250-plus supported network devices. New devices supported include:

* Alcatel-Lucent OmniSwitch 6602 and 6624 series.

* Any F5 BIG-IP device running v9

* Additional Cisco CSS models (11501, 11503, and 11506)

* Force 10 E150, E300, E600, E610, and E1200

* Edgewater EdgeMarc 4200, 4300T, 4500, 5300, and 6400 series.
