Reflex Security Ships High-Performance Enterprise IPS Solutions with Firewall Support.
ATLANTA & SAN FRANCISCO -- Today, at the RSA Conference, Reflex Security (www.reflexsecurity.com), pioneer and innovator in intrusion prevention systems (IPS), announced immediate availability of the industry's first IPS platform to integrate high performance firewall functionality. Now with the addition of firewall technology, the Reflex Security IPS MG Family of multi-gigabit/blade-based IPS solutions deliver up to 10 Gigabits of throughput, meeting the performance requirements of large enterprises and carriers.
"Industry analysts are correct in their belief that the 'Next Generation' of solutions will combine both IPS and firewall capabilities," said John Peterson, Reflex Security's VP of Product (formerly an executive with leading firewall vendors Fortinet and NetScreen). "Reflex Security's superior approach lets IT managers forgo painful "fork-lift" upgrades as they migrate their firewalls to an integrated high performance IPS/firewall converged product. The combination of Reflex Security's IPS platform (including signature-based, flow-based, and anomaly-based blocking techniques) with firewall-provisioned, protocol-based blocking gives enterprises a 'Next Generation' system--today," said Peterson.
In order to secure high-capacity enterprise networks, 'Next Generation' security systems must be based on a solid IPS foundation, not on a firewall platform. The complexity and operational issues of 'Next-Gen' networks mandate they be architected on an IPS platform, which has the inherent performance capability necessary for deep packet inspection, intrusion prevention, and detection.
"As Intrusion Prevention Systems operate as in-line network devices running at wire speeds, performance is the first key criterion for selecting enterprise network IPS systems,"1 said Greg Young, research vice president and security analyst, Gartner, Inc.
News of Reflex's "High Performance IPS/Firewall" coincides with the company's announcement today of the availability of "industry first" for enterprise networking security: the Enhanced Reflex Command Center (ERCC). The ERCC is the industry's first enterprise security management solution to combine the functions of identity management, security information and event management (SIEM), ID-based Network Access Control (ID-NAC), and IPS management into a single appliance. See related press release "Reflex Security Ships Enhanced Reflex Command Center" at http://www.reflexsecurity.com/news/.
"Beyond initial integration into our IPS MG Family, Reflex Security plans to make firewall support available throughout our product line, including the Reflex VSA (Virtual Security Appliance), our award-winning solution for virtualized networks," said Hezi Moore, President and CTO.
