Norman AS to Launch New Solution at RSA
Feb 25, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Norman AS announced that it is launching its new Norman Network Protection solution at RSA.
Norman AS is a provider of 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 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."
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 new user interface that 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 respond to the fast-changing APT landscape.
