Idappcom targets US managed security services market
Idappcom, the specialist vendor of security assessment and remediation solutions will be show-casing its advanced network security assessment, rule management and SME Risk Management services at the February 2016 RSA Conference in San Francisco.
Now in its 25th year the RSA conference is the world’s biggest event in the IT security calendar playing an integral role in keeping security professionals across the globe connected and educated and is where many of today’s leading security technologies were first unveiled.
The decision to exhibit at the conference is part of Idappcom’s North American channel development strategy that is focused on establishing a network of US managed security service partners in 2016, based around remote management of Traffic IQ, Easy Rule Manager and small format IPS deployments.
Traffic IQ (TIQ) is Idappcom’s advanced threat response assessment tool that is used to test the effectiveness of network sensors, such as Firewalls and IPS devices, in detecting and blocking the latest exploit traffic. With access to a library of approaching 11,000 captured exploit files TIQ is able to show where there are gaps in the security defences that could result in success for a real-world hack attack.
Idappcom CEO, Ray Bryant commented:
“TIQ has been used by many of the industry’s leading security vendors to validate their own products in development for several years now. Recently we have seen increased uptake from large scale enterprises to help monitor and maintain their network security but we see the greatest growth potential in the resource-poor SME market who typically look to specialist managed service providers to maintain their security.
The latest version of TIQ is now able to support multiple deployments from a remote SOC providing a platform for a range of innovative managed security services and offering significant new revenue opportunities for security VARs and MSSPs for minimal outlay.”
Easy Rule Manager (ERM) is Idappcom’s unique application that provides a centralized dashboard for managing Idappcom’s own as well as ETpro’s Snort Rule deployments. Both rule-sets are now available from Idappcom and ERM ensures that rules from different sources can be selected, compared, edited and deployed across complex networks based on the specific subnet functions and Snort or Suricata sensor configurations. This significantly reduces the volume of false positives typically generated following an automated vendor update, resulting in major time and cost savings for this regular monthly task.
At the show Idappcom will also be launching its Risk Management Services platform for SMEs and the home and mobile worker sector. The platform combines a range of small format mobile devices and industry standard IPS technology together with Cloud-based secure access and remote management software. This off-the shelf package enables MSSPs to leverage their specialist security expertise to reach a largely untapped market sector that has the same security requirements as other businesses but can lack the in-house skill and resources to deploy the necessary solutions.
Commenting further Ray said:
“I have long believed that remote workers are one of the weakest links in the corporate security shield with the lack of specialist resources and cost being the major barrier to extending IPS functionality to cover home, hotel and airport use when browsing or accessing company servers. Our new range of devices operate on low-cost hardware to get them down to an acceptable price-point and are connected to our Center of Excellence in the Cloud to keep to them updated with the latest user-defined rule-sets without the need for in-house expertise. This makes deployment of IPS for any business, whatever the size, a realistic proposition for the first time.”
