May 8, 2012 - PRLog -- Boston, May 2012: CounterSnipe, a leader in developing “easy to deploy and manage”,  network security software,  APS (Active Protection Software),  are pleased to announce the latest release, 5.0.0, which now includes One-Click active scanning of pc and servers.

CounterSnipe IDS/IPS software already offered comprehensive protection from security threats with built in host identification, application and vulnerability discovery, correlation of attack to vulnerability data, and intelligent alert management. CounterSnipe systems are designed to detect and prevent against real and most relevant security violations.

CounterSnipe delivers enhanced network security management by discovering and monitoring any new networked assets (hosts) and alerting the security administrators about their presence.  The system automatically tunes itself to start protecting these new assets from all relevant malicious attacks.

The addition of active scanning of assets enables companies to protect their most vulnerable servers and applications from day one.

The new release eliminates the need for security administrators to wait for the system to build a profile, especially of critical servers, over time and ensures that no ports are left unattended and vulnerable to exploits and attacks. The system also supports passive detection of changes on the network, detects unwanted hosts being connected to the network and provides immediate reporting for urgent responses.

“Our goal is to continue delivering more and more automated and easy to manage network security systems. We understand that businesses do not necessarily have the resources to sit around browsing through reports, alerts and other data in order to go back and configure their security systems. CounterSnipe offers businesses automated, self tuning and always-on security management”, says Amar Rathore, CTO CounterSnipe.

“CounterSnipe has changed the way IDS/IPS is perceived within our markets. The ability to build a group of assets and learn everything about their current state, helps our customers secure their critical servers and applications with the confidence that no ports are left open for rogue access”, says Ruud De Vries of Netsupport, a CounterSnipe European partner.

CounterSnipe’s latest release is immediately available both as site licence and pre-configured appliances from CounterSnipe’s trained and accredited resellers internationally.  For further information or to test drive our systems please contact
