Net Optics Achieves OPSEC Certification From Check Point
(Market Wire Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge) SANTA CLARA, CA, July 25 / MARKET WIRE/ --
Net Optics, Inc., the leader in passive
Bypass technology, today announced that its iBypass has achieved OPSEC
(Open Platform for Security) certification from Check Point Software
Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the
Internet. Through OPSEC certification, Net Optics' iBypass seamlessly
interoperates with Check Point IPS-1 intrusion prevention systems.
The Net Optics iBypass Switch with Heartbeat
technology protects networks from unnecessary downtime due to power, link,
and application failures. OPSEC integration between Check Point IPS-1
provides organizations with an additional level of in-line reliability for
IPS-1 deployments. Through OPSEC integration, the Net Optics iBypass Switch
is able to continually monitor the operating status of the IPS-1 system,
verifying the state of the link between the two devices and automatically
rerouting traffic away from the IPS-1 system in the event of a link
anomaly, outage or other form of failure.
"The iBypass Switch is the epitome in secure network access points for
intrusion prevention systems and other in-line monitoring devices," said
Dennis Carpio, Director of Product Innovation at Net Optics. "Network
security professionals will now have a remotely managed, intelligent
solution that will meet the needs of their mission critical deployments."
Software management tools, Web Manager (browser-based) and System Manager
(platform-based), are both included in the purchase of iTap enabled
products and can be used to either view a single device or logical groups
of devices for greater visibility and information. A Command Line Interface
(CLI) is also included for initial installation and setup. Optional
Management Information Base (MIB) is available for organizations that wish
to manage Net Optics products from Enterprise software platforms, like IBM
Tivoli or HP OpenView.
"We are pleased to see Net Optics achieve OPSEC certification," said
Poornima DeBolle, Head of Business Development for Check Point Software
Technologies. "Bypass Switches and link monitoring solutions play a major
role in identifying traffic bottlenecks, and consequently providing
alternative traffic routes that are critical for enterprise deployments."
