Modernizing Authentication — What It Takes to Transform Secure Access
A collection of security vendors released product news and other announcements one week before the annual RSA Security Conference begins in San Francisco.
The avalanche of new security products launched for the RSA Conference 2007 has already begun, even though the show itself does not kick off for another week.
A collection of security companies introduced new products, or announced other news, on Jan. 29 in an effort to get ahead of the crowd, as dozens of additional products and services will be rolled out over the coming week in expectation of the event, and during the show itself, which will run from Feb. 5-10 in San Francisco at the Moscone Center.
Among the firms getting news out the door before the increasingly popular conference begins were Vontu, SPI Dynamics, eEye Digital Security, ScriptLogic, NitroSecurity, Novell's Project Bandit and Extreme Networks.
Vontu, based in San Francisco, announced its latest data loss prevention package, which promises to help enterprises lock down the flow of information from their networks and maintain compliance with data-handling regulations.
Dubbed Vontu 7, the package boasts an array of upgrades over previous iterations of the company's software, including the ability to monitor USB storage devices and other removable media, along with expanded reporting tools.
Among other capabilities, the Vontu software claims the ability to protect data whether it resides on servers, desktops and laptops, and to block sensitive data from being sent out via e-mail, Webmail or file-sharing systems. The product also boasts new coverage for Asian languages, and will hit the market in late March 2007 with a base price of $25,000.
