Network Security Specialist Integrates Cyveillance Malware Prevention Into Its Products

Cyveillance : 22 June, 2010  (Application Story)
Anti-Malware and Anti-Phishing capability from Cyveillance now incorporated into the Fidelis XPS network security product offering enhanced protection against network intrusion and the propagation of malware
The Fidelis XPS network security product from Fidelis Security Systems now integrates directly with Anti-Malware and Anti-Phishing threat intelligence feeds from Cyveillance. The combined solution provides Fidelis XPS customers automatic and real-time visibility and control of known malicious threat actors attempting to steal information and compromise computer networks--enabling organizations to prevent cyber attacks with a higher level of automated intelligence sharing and increased situational awareness.

"Networks today are being flooded with new and advanced threats, said Eric Ouellet, Research Vice President, Gartner. "The ability for an organization to add actionable threat intelligence to their network security toolkit gives them an opportunity to get ahead of the threat."

By bringing real-time threat intelligence into the patented Fidelis XPS architecture, the Deep Session Inspection™ platform, organizations gain greater visibility into and control over their network traffic with reputational knowledge on all 65,535 ports. In addition to the Cyveillance cyber intelligence feeds, the newly released Fidelis XPS Feed Manager function can integrate other data feeds, giving Fidelis XPS customers and partners the ability to further integrate threat data—connecting to threat intelligence sources, either internal or external to the organization—in order to provide dynamic, real-time reputation-based policy updates to their Fidelis XPS sensors.

"As phishing and malware attacks constantly evolve, it is critical to stay ahead of these threats," said Panos Anastassiadis, COO of Cyveillance. "Our real-time Anti-Phishing and Anti-Malware threat intelligence enhances the ability of Fidelis XPS to proactively respond to zero-day threats as soon as they are identified—before they can penetrate the network. Fidelis Security Systems is continuously looking to deliver innovative solutions to its customers, and we are pleased to partner with them to address the dynamic nature of today's cyber threats."

After an initial complementary three month subscription, Fidelis XPS customers can purchase the Anti-Phishing and Anti-Malware Distribution Feeds for Fidelis XPS, powered by Cyveillance, directly from Fidelis Security Systems through an annual subscription service. The Fidelis XPS Feed Manager is a standard feature available on Fidelis XPS products. The new Fidelis XPS cyber intelligence feed capability includes:

* Fidelis XPS Feed Manager - provides the ability to connect to threat intelligence sources and automatically integrate timely reputational data into Fidelis XPS policy. This real-time threat information allowing an organization to differentiate between trusted sources and known bad actors in Fidelis XPS policy, enabling more granular inspection of network sessions and separate actions based on reputation. Beyond Fidelis XPS feeds, other threat intelligence sources can be accessed via HTTP or FTP with support for XML, CSV, and IP list formats.

* Fidelis XPS Anti-Phishing Feed - an annual subscription service providing a feed of real-time threat intelligence of known fraudulent Web pages. Powered by Cyveillance, the Anti-Phishing Feed provides near real-time updates of systems with fake or copied login pages for banks, brokerages, payment services and other financial services; customer surveys, giveaways and sweepstakes-entry pages. Information collected by bad actors through these pages is used to commit fraud, ID theft, and gain access to enterprise networks, intellectual property and highly sensitive information.

* Fidelis XPS Anti-Malware Distribution Feed - an annual subscription service providing a feed of real-time threat intelligence of systems, Websites, and IP addresses distributing malicious software. Powered by Cyveillance, the Anti-Malware Distribution Feed provides near real-time updates of locations known to deliver a piece of malicious code, as well as the download locations of the malicious binary.


"The newly released Fidelis XPS Feed Manager feature and integration of Cyvelliance cyber intelligence provides a new approach to computer network defence by bringing real-time threat intelligence into the unparalleled Fidelis XPS Deep Session Inspection platform," said Peter George, CEO of Fidelis Security Systems. "Unlike signature-based solutions that are quickly outdated or easy to evade, or reputational data tied to a small number of ports, Fidelis XPS brings real-time reputational knowledge to life for all ports along with the unprecedented visibility and control of network traffic to mitigate today's advanced and persistent cyber threats."
