Aladdin Knowledge Systems

eToken NG-Flash
eToken NG-OTP
Aladdin Knowledge Systems is pushing the envelope with two new releases aimed at easing network identification: eToken NG-Flash and NG-OTP. NG-Flash combines strong authentication with the convenience of Flash storage, available in three different sizes: 128 Mb, 512 Mb and 1 Gb. The USB-based token stores users' credentials, personal information and encryption data, minimizing the steps needed to authenticate users on various applications. NG-OTP offers a combination of USB and one-time password authentication. But, key to this token's usability is its extended battery life--purported to be seven years, or 14,000 clicks. And, no longer does a dead battery mean a useless token: Included on NG-OTP is a low-battery indicator. (Aladdin will offer battery replacements for the token when needed.)

Although both products have been announced at the RSA Conference, neither will be available for general purchase until March. Visit the Aladdin booth (1247) for more information.

Safety Seal
CallingID's Safety Seal protects users from Internet fraud and identity theft when they log in to a Web server. It is software installed on a Web server. Once installed and linked to one or more login pages, every user that tries to login, continues using the same username and password without the need to learn a new authentication method. If a phishing site tries to redirect him from the real site to a phishing site - that phishing site will receive a false password. Even if the users' computer is infected by hostile software like spyware, Trojan or keylogger, the login parameters cannot be identified by that software. When a user logs into his online account, in cases where such hostile software exists, the hostile software is led to detect a false password while the real password is safely delivered to the site using strong encryption. CallingID uses a special technology that neutralizes all hostile software. Safety Seal is available for Internet Web sites installed on Unix, Linux and Windows machines and for clients using Windows 2000 or XP.

Pricing for Safety Seal starts at $5 annually per client.

Endforce Informant
Endforce announced ENDFORCE Informant, a silent network monitoring product that detects and alerts enterprises when unauthorized rogue or unknown endpoints connect to the network. This solution enables administrators to quickly react to the presence of rogue machines.

ENDFORCE Informant is deployed strategically within a corporate network and passively monitors network communications (ARP requests). Passive monitoring means that ENDFORCE Informant does not interfere with normal network communications. Low-level ARP monitoring allows all IP communications to be detected. Even if an endpoint evades DHCP or 802.1X network-based enforcement, the endpoint cannot communicate and spread infections throughout the network without using ARP. By monitoring ARP, identifying which endpoints are attempting IP connections, and comparing the endpoint with the list of approved, compliant, and registered endpoints, ENDFORCE Informant immediately knows if an unapproved endpoint is using the network.

Once an endpoint is identified, ENDFORCE Informant can alert an administrator with the endpoint's MAC or IP addresses. The administrator can then identify the network location and take appropriate security actions.

The list price for ENDFORCE Informant is $7,500 per server and $2,000 per monitor. Volume discounts are offered.

Shavlik Technologies

Shavlik NetChk Compliance
Yesterday, Shavlik Technologies took the wraps off Shavlik NetChk Compliance, a SIM solution that aims to help security and network professionals meet regulatory and corporate audit policy challenges by managing system and security configurations. It offers central security configuration management for operating systems, Web servers and database and utilizes a centralized XML-driven query engine. NetChk offers baseline security policies and settings, including best practices for security policy auditing and rationale for security recommendations. It also allows for security audits performed around ISO 17700 frameworks. Users can search by domain, organization unit, machine name, IP address or IP range. The SIM also allows the user to manage machines from one console, server, workstation or laptop. Users can scan their environment for systems that are non-compliant and then bring them to a compliant state. The product supports Windows XP and Server 2003.

Pricing is $23 per seat for workstations (up to 1000 seats) and $250 per seat per server for up to 1000 servers. You can visit Shavlik at the show at booth 423.

Sun Microsystems

Solaris 10
Sun Java Systems Web Server
Sun Microsystems has further battened down Solaris 10 with yesterday's announcement that it will offer current customers "Trusted Extensions" to the OS.

The extensions are security add-ons that complement what was integrated into Solaris 10 last January from Trusted Solaris, a version used by government agencies with strict security requirements. Rather than create a new source tree, Solaris decided to deliver the remainder of Trusted Solaris to the commercial version as an add-on.

The extensions -- which are Common Criteria EAL4+ certified -- label data, devices and users with a security level; objects without proper clearance levels are denied access.

Sun also announced the Sun Java Systems Web Server will support Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) encryption. ECC uses smaller key sizes than RSA encryption, which is still supported. ECC enables devices with limited processing power like smart cards, PDAs and cellphones to interact with the server.

ECC also brings Sun in line with the government's migration plan toward the algorithm and wider support for lightweight mobile devices.

Pricing information is not available at this time.

TippingPoint M60
TippingPoint, a division of 3Com, has announced an intrusion prevention system chassis, called TippingPoint M60, and corresponding IPS modules able to scale up to 60 Gbps.

The TippingPoint M60 chassis supports 10 Gbps interfaces and is available in seven, 10 or 14-slot versions that hold three IPS modules: the T5000, a 5 Gbps IPS module; the T2000, a 2 Gbps IPS module; and the T1000, a 1 Gbps module. Each module offers the same functionality as the systems in the TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System product line. However, the new IPS modules offer 12 Gigabit copper or fiber Ethernet ports.

Each IPS module is capable of more than two million simultaneous connections and one million connections per second with switch-like latency of less than 150 microseconds. The IPS modules block worms, viruses, Trojans, spyware, phishing and denial-of-service attacks.

The TippingPoint M60 chassis and IPS modules will be available in the second half of 2006. Pricing is not yet available.

Third Brigade

Deep Security 4
Third Brigade is announcing the availability of its Deep Security 4, software that stops network attacks before they impact the host machine, reducing the risk of security configuration inconsistencies. By reducing the attack surface, communication is restricted to authorized hosts and services only. The product also monitors all incoming and outgoing network traffic for protocol deviations or content indicative of an attack. Deep Security also prevents unauthorized access to hosts, and provides an auditable history of security configurations and changes, documenting prevented attacks.

Third Brigade's Deep Security 4 starts at $25,000, and includes five Deep Security Agents and unlimited Agent licenses operating in detect-only mode.

TriCipher Armored Credential System Authentication Gateway
TriCipher's TriCipher Armored Credential System Authentication Gateway (TACSag) builds on the company's TACS product to include turnkey integration for more rapid implementation, without any API work for authentication; and a middleware shield, which allows customers to shield their applications from changes. All customer-facing interactions involving multifactor authentication are redirected to TACS Authentication Gateway (using the industry standard SAML standard), which then performs the requisite functions interacting directly with the customer and the TACS and returns a response. On first release TACS Authentication Gateway will also support hooks for integration with various passive authentication, and fraud detection.

Pricing for TACS starts at $100,000 and includes 25 credentials; TACS Authentication Gateway will be available in March at a starting cost of $25,000.

Utimaco Safeware

SecurE-Mail Gateway 5.0
Utimaco Safeware has announced the release of SecurE-Mail Gateway 5.0, the latest version of its enterprise e-mail security product. In addition to its standard features, which include encryption/decryption and centralized administration, SecurE-Mail Gateway 5.0 features enhancements such as role-based administration that allows security staff to implement company-specific guidelines for monitoring and managing corporate e-mail systems.

SecurE-Mail Gateway guarantees secure e-mail communication by attaching signatures to e-mail and automatically checking their validity. The product, however, is completely transparent to users. Via role-based administration, security staff can keep all areas of administrative responsibility separate and distinct from each other. SecurE-Mail Gateway also allows security staff to establish an auditor role to oversee security policies.

Another primary component is the integrated key server for S/MIME and OpenPGP e-mail, offering centralized administration and distribution for public keys used by an enterprise's communications partners. With the SecurE-Mail Gateway, certificates and keys can automatically be separated from e-mails and then imported.

SecurE-Mail Gateway can be clustered. Because all relevant data, including rules and certificates, are stored in a central database, clusters can be implemented at minimal cost and effort.

Pricing begins at $3,000.
