NEW YORK, Oct. 13 /CNW/ - At the SC World Congress in New York City, AUCONET is presenting PortSecurityManager 2.0, the first IEEE 802.1X-compatible network access control management solution for vendor-independent high-level security in complex heterogeneous networks. This innovative network management platform offers extensive security mechanisms and resource administration with pinpoint inventory function in real time.
"Firewalls, anti-virus programs and VPN access merely block the external sources of danger. But 70% of the risks for a company's network security are hidden deep within the company itself. To tackle this frequently ignored problem, the latest version of PortSecurityManager offers a strong solution that can be implemented quickly and generates a fast return on investment," says AUCONET's Managing Director Frank Winter.
PortSecurityManager 2.0 provides vendor-independent, state-of-the-art network security in accordance with IEEE 802.1X and also integrates standard SNMP devices for total security support for non-802.1X-enabled devices. As a result, access control is no longer depending on vendors or age of network components. Cost-intensive procurement of new equipment and time-consuming installation obligations are avoided. Additionally, PortSecurityManager integrates itself smoothly and fully automated into existing system environments and rapidly locates more than 400,000 network ports, manageable with a highly intuitive graphical one-click user interface.
As well as security standards that can be updated continuously, the innovative software suite offers a diversity of functions in the fields of inventory management and network transparency. At Deutsche Bahn AG, Germany's leading rail company and supplier for mobility and logistics, the use of PortSecurityManager enables central monitoring of the entire network containing 350,000 ports within a very short period of time. The PortSecurityManager demonstrates this effective network security at the leading German savings bank group and a leading insurance group active in Central and Eastern Europe.
