IT management software vendor CA has launched a new host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS), combining advanced firewall, intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems to defend enterprise IT assets against today’s blended security threats. CA claims that the new HIPS offering provides centrally managed threat protection for PCs and servers, enabling IT teams to quickly and efficiently implement best practice security policies for system endpoints across the enterprise. “IT organisations in the region are already dealing with twice as many threats as they did even just a year ago and those threats are getting more complex and sophisticated all the time,” said Abdul Karim Riyaz, regional director for CA’s storage and protection business unit in the EMEA Eastern market. “By providing another powerful yet easy-to-administer layer of defence to existing enterprise security architectures, CA HIPS is helping customers further minimise their exposure to IT-related risks without putting undue strain on their budgets,” Riyaz added. Nehme Mouchantaf, software and solutions unit manager at CA distributor Mindware, commented: “CA HIPS enables us to provide our customers with an additional layer of security that complements CA’s anti-spyware and anti virus solutions which have already proven to be so effective for them. Its centralised management and self-learning capabilities make it easy to use and clearly set it far above other products in the market.” The CA HIPS offering monitors both incoming and outgoing traffic and enables centralised management of access control policies. CA claims that it simplifies the deployment and management of intrusion prevention on Windows systems across the enterprise. The CA HIPS offering is available through authorised resellers in the Middle East.
