Morethan 30 Customers Deploy Attack Shield WS; Only IPS Client Protecting Windows Core Services at the OS with Zero Administration
SAN MATEO, Calif. October 25, 2004 - Sana Security, Inc. a leader in intrusion prevention software (IPS), today unveiled its new Attack Shield product family, delivering zero administration intrusion prevention targeted at specific, high risk attack classes. Attack Shield Worm Suppression (WS), the first of the Attack Shield products, provides customers built-in protection for Microsoft Windows core services at the operating system (OS) level from code injection exploits*, the largest risk class of internet attacks, without any end-user administration or maintenance. Attack Shield WS is available through two main channels: embedded at theOS level by the world's top device manufacturers and delivered as a self-installing add-on for existing machines from Sana Security's established resellers, leading e-tailers and systems partners.
"The window to download-test-patch has disappeared and core assets should not be left to rules and signature based solutions that require frequent updates and modifications. It is critical that Internet-connected PCs are protected from PC network worms, the largest class of attacks," said Matthew Kovar, vice president, security solutions & services, business & IT services, The Yankee Group. "Leveraging an IPS solution complements antivirus efforts and protects against known and unknown exploits like worms. Itis an essential and painless element for maintaining PC and network health,especially at a minor investment of under $10 USD per machine. I expect vast acceleration of this technology in the next 6 months."
Attack Shield WS is the only IPS client suitable for mass deployment at the Windows OS because it does not require rules or signature updates. Following a one-time installation that requires no on going management, Attack Shield WS ensures a more simple, secure end-user computing experience despite the increasing frequency and sophistication of internet-based threats, particularly network worms, enabling businesses to improve PC and network health, business continuity, employee productivity and operational cost. More than 30 small business, government, and enterprise customers have already deployed Attack Shield WS for instant protection from known and unknown code injection threats including several purchase orders to protect more than 5,000 PCs.
Attack Shield WS is now available and can be purchased for less than $10/unit
