HANOVER, Md., Aug. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hexis Cyber Solutions (Hexis), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW), and a provider of advanced cybersecurity solutions for commercial companies and government agencies, today launched its NetBeat product line featuring solutions built to provide organizations with simplified network monitoring, analysis and control. NetBeat MON and NetBeat NAC deliver 360 degree network visibility in a set of easy-to-use applications that improve organizational productivity.
Several IT trends are driving the need for increased in-depth, network visibility. BYOD, virtualization and cloud computing have changed the landscape of the traditional network and enabled many new unauthorized devices to attach to networks thereby increasing security risk and potentially affecting network performance. The pressure is on IT professionals to provide comprehensive, real-time insight into network activity, often with limited resources. Hexis NetBeat solutions meet demand for increased network insight at a price fit for small- to mid-sized businesses and those operating within the government space without sacrificing functionality.
"Quick and easy access to real time information is imperative to comprehensive network analysis and control, which is now more important than ever as irregular or unauthorized access could signal that sensitive information is at risk," said Chris Fedde, President of Hexis Cyber Solutions. "We developed the NetBeat product line as a complete package to provide security and network professionals the network visibility and insight they require in easy-to-use applications. By deploying NetBeat MON and NetBeat NAC, organizations can boost overall continuous network awareness, a critical first step in a proactive approach to better IT security."
As a multi-functional appliance, NetBeat MON provides a broad set of network monitoring and diagnostics capabilities including advanced intrusion detection, forensics packet capture, network flow and network analysis capabilities. Leveraging best-of-breed tools from the thriving open source community like Suricata, Snorby and Wireshark, paired with proprietary easy-to-use software, IT professionals use NetBeat MON to make informed network management and data protection decisions. The solution easily integrates into an organization's existing infrastructure and because it is built for simplicity, it drastically reduces deployment, and ongoing maintenance costs. This appliance also delivers on affordable scale; as organizations' needs evolve, users can deploy a "master" console that monitors the network traffic of field sites or remote office locations from a central location.
To gain control over their networks, IT professionals deploy NetBeat NAC to automatically block unauthorized devices. NetBeat NAC delivers increased security by identifying all devices in real-time, alerting IT administrators to unauthorized devices and quarantining or blocking those devices, tackling IT threats before the network is compromised. Unlike other network access control solutions that are cumbersome and complex to deploy, NetBeat NAC is easy-to-use and is truly "plug-and-play," enabling organizations to block unwanted devices within minutes after activation.
Pricing and Availability
NetBeat MON and NetBeat NAC are currently available exclusively through Hexis Cyber Solutions' network of qualified channel partners. NetBeat MON starts at $11,450 for a single 1U appliance. NetBeat NAC is priced as low as $5,495 for the Branch Pro with the ability to cost effectively scale into major enterprises with thousands of endpoints.
