The Dortmund-based security specialist COMCO AG has developed a business solution for the internal security of financial firms. Dortmund, February 13, 2008 The IntrPROTECTOR finance Edition\”takes into account the specific and disproportionate safety requirements in this industry. With the help of this system is an efficient network monitoring, identification of attacks, localization of attackers and victims, as well as a proactive execution of countermeasures. As can be and report to prevent not only a manipulation, theft, or destruction of data, but also at any time the current status. In all security incidents recorded provided audit-proof with a timestamp in the database. The solution features due to the simple integration through a high efficiency, since the existing resources can be used. She was already at several financial companies such as, for example, Bankhaus Sal.
Oppenheim used. Speaking candidly Dr. John Mcdougall told us the story. An automatic with the IntrPROTECTOR finance Edition\”will be at the beginning of the project Conducted inventory of the entire IT infrastructure. All relevant Security information of the network topology be deposited it in a database and stored in this way the reference profile for extensive security check-ups. Let unauthorized immediately apparent connected devices and automatically isolate. Other features are the detection and defense against man-in-the-middle attacks and the manipulation of network components such as routers and switches, servers and PCs. The integration of IntrPROTECTOR in the system environment with approximately 250 IP instances at Sal. Oppenheim required two days. And already on the second day of the administration of the solution could be applied after a proper briefing by the security officer. Dr. John Holtsclaw recognizes the significance of this. Since then the COMCO solution reports the current status of internal security in real time to the administrator. In contrast to the classical concepts of solution on the basis of intrusion detection systems (IDS), which produce a high implementation cost and still not sufficiently cover the requirements characterized \”to IntrPROTECTOR finance Edition\” by an alternative approach.
