nCircle Releases New Highly Scalable, High Performance Security Risk Management Appliance

    New VnE 5100 Enables Large Enterprises to Quickly and Accurately Assess
    Hundreds of Thousands of IT Assets for Risk and Compliance

    SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 30 /CNW/ -- nCircle, the leading provider of
agentless security risk and compliance management solutions, today announced
that it has released a new, highly scalable, high speed appliance designed for
very large enterprises. As companies expand their global IT networks to store,
process and manage increasing amounts of critical financial and personal
information, their need for up to date risk and compliance assessment also
grows. The changing threat environment necessitates an accurate, high
performance solution capable of high speed, continuous enterprise scanning of
large global networks. nCircle's new VnE 5100 is the ultimate platform for
security risk management in large enterprises with hundreds of thousands of
networked assets, ensuring that IT organizations are focused on rapidly
identifying and reducing security risk and ensuring compliance at the lowest
possible cost.
    nCircle's IP360 security risk management solution is delivered on
hardened appliances, enabling rapid deployment and providing a low total cost
of ownership. The new VnE 5100 appliance is the central IP360 console for
managing network, application, and vulnerability discovery and assessment, and
works with nCircle DP3000 scanning appliances to scan networks of virtually
any size with unprecedented speed, accuracy and low total cost of ownership.
The highly scalable and high performance VnE 5100 joins the VnE 3100 and VnE
1100 consoles which are designed for medium to large enterprises. The
introduction of a next generation, more scalable appliance enables customers
to expand their IP360 solution as their needs expand, and with significantly
less complexity and cost than competing solutions. The VnE 5100 is a standard
19" rack-mountable 2U chassis, ensuring easy datacenter installation and low
management overhead. Featuring multi-core processors, high speed raid array
storage and dual power supplies for high availability, the VnE 5100
incorporates the latest technologies and benefits from nCircle's experience in
providing security risk and compliance solutions to over 4,000 customers
    "nCircle's new VnE 5100 appliance provides the fastest, most scalable
platform yet for enterprise-wide security risk management," said Tim Keanini,
nCircle's Chief Technology Officer. "The VnE 5100 enables nCircle customers to
continuously and accurately assess their large, distributed networks,
promoting risk reduction and improved compliance."
    nCircle is committed to meeting or exceeding environmental standards in
the manufacture of its products. The new VnE 5100 appliance joins a full
family of nCircle 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
