According to Brent Davidson, Intellitactics’ Director of Strategic Development, the partnership serves to heighten the level of Enterprise Security Management (ESM) capability currently available in the market. Stonesoft’s StoneBeat ServerCluster solution will allow Intellitactics’ customers to increase scalability and availability by adding load balancing and fault tolerance capabilities to Intellitactics’ Network Security Manager (NSM) software solution.
Stonesoft’s ServerCluster is a high availability clustering technology that enables corporations running business-critical applications such as network applications, storage and database servers, and e-commerce sites to maintain near 100% uptime, regardless of software or hardware failure.
Intellitactics’ Network Security Manager software monitors normalizes and correlates the security data produced by hundreds of security devices and applications in real time, looks for patterns of suspicious activity, identifies internal and external threats, and provides analyses and strategies for protecting the information on corporate networks.
The integration of ServerCluster and NSM will give security staff increased confidence and assurance that corporate mission critical assets will be fully protected 24×7, even if software or hardware components malfunction. As the risk and sophistication of cyber-threats grow, this capability is essential. Security teams must have access to real-time data around the clock so they can detect, analyze, and respond immediately and effectively to threats as they occur, not hours later when an attack could have severely damaged the corporation.
