    Breakthrough Design Combines Configuration and Vulnerability Scanning in a
    Single Appliance
    

    SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 1 /CNW/ -- nCircle, the leading provider of agentless
security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced that it has
released the industry's first unified scanning appliance combining agentless
configuration and vulnerability discovery. Effective security and compliance
management requires comprehensive risk analysis that includes discovery and
assessment of vulnerabilities, applications, network topology, and
configurations. The new nCircle DP3000 appliance provides a unified platform
for achieving such comprehensive discovery and assessment, ensuring a solid
foundation for reducing security risk and ensuring compliance at the lowest
possible cost.

    nCircle's security risk and compliance management solutions are delivered
on hardened appliances, enabling rapid deployment and providing a low total
cost of ownership. Prior to the release of the unified nCircle DP3000
appliance, customers purchased separate appliances for configuration and
vulnerability discovery. The new integrated appliance allows customers to
benefit from both configuration and vulnerability scanning without requiring
separate infrastructure. They can also start with just one service and later
add the other while leveraging their current hardware investment. Customers
benefit from improved IT security and compliance, while reducing their overall
cost of management, deployment, upgrades and maintenance.
    Additionally, most recently purchased nCircle appliances can be upgraded
to the unified capabilities for a nominal fee.
    "nCircle continues to integrate its security risk management and
compliance solutions, providing ever greater value and functionality," said
Tim Keanini, nCircle's Chief Technology Officer. "Our new unified DP3000
appliance is a unique innovation in the industry, and makes it even easier for
our customers to reduce their network risk and ensure compliance."
    nCircle's new DP3000 joins its full family of appliances in compliance
with the RoHS and WEEE environmental directives. The RoHS directive requires
the elimination of certain harmful substances, such as lead and mercury, from
electronic equipment, while the WEEE directive is intended to reduce the waste
arising from electrical and electronic equipment through planned recycling.
nCircle is committed to meeting or exceeding environmental standards in the
manufacture of its products.
