Norman AS to Launch Norman Network Protection Solution at RSA, Demos to be Available

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--

For corporations, government entities, utilities and any organization where security teams are increasingly concerned about advanced persistent threats (APTs), Norman AS is launching its new Norman Network Protection solution. Norman AS is the global security leader in malware analysis solutions for enterprises, service providers and governments.

Key new features of the Norman Network Protection version 5 solution include SMTP relay, a new user interface, a faster scanning engine, and enhanced open APIs.

Demos of the new Norman Network Protection solution will be available in Norman's booth, #2047, Tuesday, February 26 - Thursday, February 28.

"Our new Norman Network Protection solution offers security teams enhanced capabilities and gives them more control over their malware detection and forensics, specifically more control between our Norman Network Protection and Malware Analyzer G2 (News - Alert) solutions," said Norman Chief Technology Officer, Christophe Birkeland. "With security teams seeing as many as 100,000 malicious files per day, it is critical they utilize powerful, automated solutions whenever possible, and our new NNP uncovers threats faster and more comprehensively than competitive products or previous versions of the NNP solution."

Norman Network Protection (NNP) is the core of Norman's comprehensive threat protection suite that also includes Norman's Malware Analyzer G2 (MAG2). NNP automatically detects and collects malicious files that traditional defenses miss. MAG2 provides industry-leading hybrid SandBoxing, which enables IT and security teamsto run suspicious files concurrently through the Norman SandBox® and Norman's virtualized IntelliVM modules. Norman's Network Threat Discovery feature integrates the two solutions: it provides a feedback loop through which NNP uploads malware files to MAG2 for analysis, and after MAG2 has identified specific malware attributes, Norman Threat Discovery forwards the information to NNP, which protects the network against future threats.


New features in Norman Network Protection version 5 include:

  • SMTP Relay - NNP now features an MTA "store and forward" capability, whereby NNP receives and examines email after the spam filter, and then based on results, delivers, quarantines or forwards it to a security administrator. It differs from a spam filter in that the solution focuses on the behavior of advanced threats contained in the email attachments, not on the spam content of the mail message itself.
  • New UI - NNP 5 introduces a powerful new user interface that substantially simplifies usage, provides live dashboard views of network analytics by protocol, enhances workflow support, and leverages the new application programming interfaces.
  • Faster Scanning Engine - NNP 5 includes Norman's highest performance scanning engine, NSE7, delivering new file detection capabilities, integrated Norman SandBox® functionality, smaller update files, and a rapid response platform to add new functionality as the threat landscape evolves.
  • Enhanced Remote APIs - Remote APIs allow administrators to remotely and centrally manage, configure and monitor NNP appliances. The APIs also enable teams managing more than one NNP deployment to remotely and centrally configure all deployments. Administrators can also integrate NNP more easily into their workflows by building their own custom scripts.

Norman has completely revamped the core network protection technology in NNP 5, delivering a modular approach to defend against malware that enables organizations to rapidly respond to the fast-changing APT (News - Alert) landscape.
