<b>earthwave – First Australian Company to Offer Full Firewall Lifecycle Management</b>

  • 20 May, 2008 10:33

<p><i>Australian MSSP to offer unique client security portal solution</i></p>
<p><b>Sydney, AUST., 20 May 2008</b> earthwave, leading Australian managed security service provider, today announced the release of its next generation MSS Client Portal, earthport. The new earthport enhancements offer the only comprehensive solution that will automatically detect security holes in any organisations firewall policies.</p>
<p>The unique new portal offering helps organisations to proactively cover six vital security areas:</p>
<p>• Change Management: earthport monitors firewall policy changes, reports them in real-time and maintains a comprehensive, accurate audit trail for full accountability.</p>
<p>• Security Policy Optimisation and Cleanup: Analysis and clean-up of complex rule bases and objects to eliminate potential security breaches and improve performance.</p>
<p>• Risk Analysis and Business Continuity: Powerful simulation and risk analysis to identify potential security risks, ensure compliance with organisational security standards, and prevent service interruptions.</p>
<p>• Firewall OS Monitoring: Comprehensive monitoring of critical firewall operating system components and server performance indicators to prevent service interruptions and enable effective auditing.</p>
<p>• Cross-Platform Visual Monitoring: Intuitive, graphical views of firewall policies, rule bases and configuration changes for Check Point, Cisco and Juniper firewalls.</p>
<p>• Auditing and Regulatory Compliance: Thorough auditing of firewall policy changes by an objective third party supports industry regulations including ACSI 33, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA, and Basel II.</p>
<p>Earthwave CEO and Founder, Carlo Minassian commented; “In the current climate there are countless examples of hacking, security breaches and interruptions to a company’s critical security systems. earthwave is providing peace of mind to our clients, in that we will be the first to know about an issue or problem associated with a company’s firewall.”</p>
<p>“Real security governance and compliance requires organisations to monitor all layers of their security and to continuously ensure that all are performing as designed. The intention of firewalls must therefore be to enforce the organisations policy. But in reality the tools currently used do not have the ability to verify the Firewall policy’s correctness. By the time a company finds out an error exists, it may be too late.”</p>
<p>“The extensive real-time monitoring and analysis features of the new MSS Client Portal can make light work of firewall change management and security policy compliance. Compliance and complexity are driving the requirement for better capability in optimising the existing firewall rules base, and examining the impact of any proposed rule changes. We are able to provide our clients increased levels of accountability with internal and regulatory compliance requirements,” he said.</p>
<p>“We have been told by our clients this detection system is an enormous value add to their business from a practical standpoint in that they can quickly address issues that emerge, and because they also feel at ease knowing issues will be identified quickly. They see it as a very proactive solution for their business.”</p>
