LookingGlass Closes a Dangerous Gap in Network Security

By CIOReview | Wednesday, March 2, 2016

FREMONT, CA:  Incorporating threat intelligence into the network layer/security networks, operations teams often find effectiveness and efficiencies improved.

A pioneer in threat intelligence-driven network security and solution company, LookingGlass Cyber Solutions™ has released an update for LookingGlass suite of threat mitigation applications which dubbed the NetX product line. It also includes a new product, LookingGlass NetSentry, a high-performance network intrusion detection system (NIDS) for layered defense, and updates to the existing LookingGlass Defenders.

LookingGlass Dynamic Threat Defense is designed to identify and stop DNS-based cyber threats at the earliest stage of the attack by preventing malware activation, communication or operation regardless of the attack vector. The update includes an enhanced CS-4000E DPP appliance, which could enable security teams to operationalize threat intelligence and discover and mitigate network threats easier, faster, and earlier.

Today, organizations are constantly faced with selection, deployment, operational complexity, and often conflicting defenses while addressing sophisticated Internet-born threats. With a heritage of front-line defense against the world’s most sophisticated threat actors, LookingGlass solutions address every stage of the threat intelligence lifecycle. It provides an outstanding breadth of data, actionable insights and automated responses.

Known for delivering the most advanced and comprehensive threat, CS-4000E mitigation operates transparently in a customer’s network to avoid detection and attack (or evasion) by bad actors. The data path has very low latency and the network interfaces have no default IP/Mac address, which means there will be reduced vulnerability.

The multi-function DPP inline network security platform reduces total cost of ownership relative to single-function appliances by hosting x86 and LookingGlass DPP-based applications. Hence, it also appeals for flexibility and drive rapid responses to emerging threats while accounting for changing network conditions.

 “With the growing concerns of supply chain and network security, the CS-4000E provides enterprise security buyers with a multi-function security platform, operating at speeds up to 20 Gbps, at an excellent price point while ensuring—critical device integrity functions are maintained,” says Chris Coleman, CEO of LookingGlass.

The CS-4000E is ideal and recommended for service providers, Telcos, and government agencies. Its carrier-grade chassis supports redundant AC and DC power and cooling. All the modules created are hot-swappable and designed for NEBS Level-3 and RoHS compliance.
