|Solutions from Ireland's infosecurity companies on display at RSA Conference|
Inventive cyper-security solutions from Ireland's leading infosecurity companies on display at next week's RSA conference
DUBLIN, Ireland and SAN FRANCISCO, California: 22 Feb 2012. Next week at RSA in San Francisco, the world’s leading gathering of information security experts, select Ireland-based companies will showcase their newest cyber-security technologies and solutions. Already well-entrenched in the US market, their technologies are preventing network vulnerabilities and securing data for government agencies, large financial institutions, insurance companies and others across the US.
Moreover, with business transactions shifting to mobile platforms, and data now stored in the cloud, demand for their solutions is on the rise as customers seek more efficient ways to safeguard information, protect identities and ensure regulatory compliance. Collectively, they’ll stage their RSA presence at the InfoSecurity Ireland stand (no 123).
The companies represent a fast-growing sector of Ireland’s economy. Behind the growth is a rich ecosystem comprised of experts from academia, government, national and international law enforcement agencies, and private industry. Together, they’re innovating and commercialising breakthrough anti-virus and anti-fraud systems, easy-to-use compliance tools, digital forensic techniques and other inventive technologies to tackle today’s cyber threats.
A selection of the technologies can be seen at RSA from the following companies:
Daon will demo its award-winning IdentityX product at RSA for the first time. Representing a new class of cyber-security solutions, IdentityX uses the end user’s mobile phone or tablet and a combination of security options to provide out-of-band authentication, as well as convenient integrated mobile applications. IdentityX can be configured to add layers of security based on transaction risk, from device identifier/certificate-enforced token possession and passcode entry, to GPS analysis and biometrics, such as face and voice matching. Its value was recognised when it captured the Cyber Security & Authentication category win at the 2011 American Technology Awards. www.identityx.com.
PixAlert will debut its PCI DSS Scope Assessment Product at the show. This fully automated solution allows businesses to quickly find where Card Holder Data (CHD) is stored on any part of the corporate network. The product offers exceptional visibility into the scale of their CHD exposures, while improving their PCI DSS certification success rates. It’s the latest cyber-security innovation from this pioneer of auditing/monitoring software that helps large organisations avoid reputational and brand risk from data breach and leakage. www.pixalert.com.
Shenick will showcase its diversifEye per-flow IP network test systems for testing application quality of experience (QoE) over secure VPNs in physical and cloud-based networks. Shenick is the only vendor to fully emulate and measure in real-time, stateful applications over secure VPNs right down to each individual application flow. Shenick has customised its tests to support the most popular top-tier vendor-specific VPN testing. By stressing VPNs to breaking point with tens of Gigabits per second of traffic, Shenick can pinpoint issues right down to each network, application and end-user flow on physical and virtualised networks. For enterprises that have employees accessing corporate data using smartphones and tablets over fixed and mobile secure VPNs, Shenick's diversifEye provides in-depth emulation, analysis, including QoE, quality of service and performance limitations. Shenick supports an extensive range of VPNs including IPSec IKEv1, 2, SSL, TLS, DTLS and IPv4 and IPv6, with upcoming support for NSA Suite B. www.shenick.com.
