NET OPTICS SUPPORTS WORLDWIDE EFFORT TO PROTECT BUSINESSES AND CITIZENS AGAINST CYBER THREATS
Company Demonstrates Criticality of Gaining 100 Percent Visibility into Network Traffic to Improve Cyber Security
SANTA CLARA, Calif., September 7, 2009 - Net Optics, Inc., the global leader in intelligent network monitoring access solutions, will illustrate the importance of achieving 100 percent visibility into public and private networks for optimal protection against cyber threats at the World Summit on Counter-Terrorism: ICT's 9th Annual International Conference, taking place in September 7-10, 2009. Net Optics will be participating in the conference with its distribution partner, RDT Equipment & Systems Ltd. Net Optics and RDT representatives will be available to discuss the application of Net Optics' solutions in specific cyber security systems.
The Net Optics portfolio of Traffic Access Ports (Taps), security bypass switches and Director™ data monitoring switches pass network traffic transparently to security and monitoring devices, and analysis programs. This effectively hides Web application firewalls, intrusion prevention systems and other security solutions from view on the network in order to mitigate the risk of hacking and compromise. The Net Optics iBypass solution further improves security by providing a fail-safe capability for monitoring the ongoing health of security solutions.
"The need to control and protect the flow of information, and provide 100 percent visibility, is essential in the fight against the growing cyber threat pandemic," said Bob Shaw, president and CEO of Net Optics. "Net Optics continues to help the global intelligence community protect businesses and citizens against malicious attacks."
Boaz Ganor, an internationally known counter-terrorism expert and Founder of ICT, remarked, "Much information about terrorists and potential terrorists can be obtained by analyzing data-at-rest sources such as blogs, social networks and databases. For other types of analysis, it is necessary to examine data in motion, in other words, information as it travels on a network. Non-intrusive, intelligent network access solutions such as those provided by Net Optics enable transparent visibility of 100 percent of the network traffic; and are essential tools for this class of analysis."
Sponsored by The International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) at IDC Herzliya, the conference is one of the most influential annual events in the field of counter-terrorism. It is an opportunity for counter-terror experts, security and network professionals, and leading academic scholars from around the world to network, establish essential cooperation mechanisms, and exchange views on best practices. Net Optics will address a critical component at the foundation of cyber security solutions - tapping into networks so traffic can be observed and analyzed.
