Telecom Egypt Selects Narus for Traffic Anomaly Detection; Telecom Egypt Leverages Narus' Security Expertise to Protect Financial Service Data.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Narus Inc. today announced that Telecom Egypt, the premier carrier in Egypt, has selected Narus, the leading Carrier-Class IP Platform provider, to secure and protect their corporate network against system disruptions such as anomalies, DDoS and worm attacks. Telecom Egypt has previously selected and installed the Narus IP Platform to monitor and report all VoIP traffic usage through the Telecom Egypt IP Network.

The CSI/FBI 2004 Computer Crime Survey estimates that network viruses and DDoS attacks accounted for close to 60 percent of all security-related damage experienced by enterprises last year. Additional research indicates that worm attacks alone will cost North American ISPs nearly $250 million in 2004. By using Narus' IP Platform with Traffic Anomaly Detection, Telecom Egypt will be able to detect and avert attacks that could prevent proper functioning of financial systems.

With anomalies and attacks occurring every day, large carriers are seeking configurable solutions to meet these changing trends and to keep their networks up and running consistently and profitably.

Narus Partner Giza Systems will implement the deployment across the core backbone routers feeding into all of Telecom Egypt's financial datacenter applications. Built on the Narus IP Platform that is capturing and analyzing all of the IP traffic in the Telecom Egypt network, the Narus' Traffic Anomaly Detection configuration will baseline all of the traffic and provide alarms on anomalous behavior.

"We're looking forward to working with Telecom Egypt with the security and management needs of their network, which are critical to their business operations," said Greg Oslan, president and CEO, Narus. "The scalability of our IP Platform provides them the ability to grow this solution into their customer network as well as to use it for other applications such as IP Analysis, Lawful Intercept and Billing Mediation."

The Narus Carrier-Class IP Platform offers a "Total Network View" through the real-time collection and analysis of one packet to billions of packets across multiple networks simultaneously. The Narus Carrier-Class IP Platform is used by Tier-1 service providers to enable IP applications such as infrastructure protection, policy enforcement, IP monitoring, and billing.
