MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - One of the key elements in network security is to locate where the cyber criminal are and where the malicious activity is coming from as soon as possible. Cybercriminals have become very good at disguising, changing, and mutating such information. Not only has this technique improved, but the life span and change frequency has shortened from months to days. In addition, new reports of "Throw away Domains" are becoming more common.
Barrier1 identified these tactics over 7 years ago and used them as part of the design criteria for their "Intelligent Threat Management" platform. The result is a platform that addresses malicious activity in real time. It was found that a learning ability can accurately identify rapidly changing web sites, DDOS attacks, Spammers, Bot locations, APT's, and polymorphic attacks in real-time and is a key to securing computer networks.
According to Mr. Ron Johnson, Dir. of Marketing, states "At today's internet speeds, mutation of web sites, intrusion tactics, reconnaissance activities, botnet deployment, and etc. is on the rise. Attacks can change or mutate at speeds that list based system alone just can't keep pace with. Today, we are experiencing changes and mutations occurring in less than 4 days. This trend will continue to compress."
Barrier1's onboard Real-Time Intelligence Engine (AARE) takes real-time information, learns, and performs analysis, and then blocks. The constantly changing cyber criminals can now be identified. Then, the Barrier1 redistributes what it has learned to its customers or community of customers within seconds, rather than months like the other network security vendors provide. This process ensures real-time protection.
Adds Johnson, "Intelligence is a game changer in that sophisticated cyber attacks can now be stopped at the edge of networks before they do damage. By accurately identifying these cybercriminals in real-time, we are able to stop new malware, bots, and other sophisticated cyber-attacks at the edge of networks."
Barrier1 has pioneered the method of Real-Time Intelligence to Network Security. This industry first is unique in practice yet has proven to be more Effective, Accurate, Faster, and Affordable than any other network security appliance on the market today. In order to maintain a safe network, one must also have the ability to identify and stop never- before- seen events with a high degree of accuracy. This ability is no longer a request but a requirement. Barrier1 has proven its superior approach on live networks for Education, Finance, Government, Health, Utility Companies, and others.
Barrier1 is the first company to provide a ITM security appliance able to combat both simple and complex threats that change and mutate. In addition Barrier1 adds 24 x 7 monitoring and continuous software updates. The company's flagship product, Barrier1™ comes in hardware configurations to meet the needs of the smallest to the largest organization. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minn., Barrier1 and The Barrier group is privately held. Visit www.thebarriergroup.com for more information.
