Comprehensive Coverage - Preventsys correlates security facts across multiple vendors' security assessment tools, at all layers of the infrastructure, including hosts, devices, applications, networks and even wireless. Preventsys unifies the scores of disparate tools organizations have accumulated through best-of-breed purchasing.
Global Contextual Prioritization - Preventsys enables IT operations groups to manage one priority queue for all security activities, no matter how many or from which sources security facts were collected from. The system also considers business context, IT priorities, and asset values in calculating the priority for each task. Security goes from being an IT issue to a business issue.
Complete Security Lifecycle management - Preventsys unifies various disjointed security teams and disparate tools in an automated, closed-loop corrective action process, which manages the complete security lifecycle. Security can be measured, managed, forecasted and budgeted using the same language as the rest of the organization.
Preventsys' Enterprise Security Management system consists of an appliance-based Enterprise Security Management server, and one or more Assessment Server appliances, which are distributed throughout the organization. The Preemptive Threat Defense module is additional software that can be added to the ESM platform, and compliments the company's previously released Policy & Regulatory Compliance module. Preemptive Threat Defense also includes the Enterprise Security Dashboard, a role-based console that brings the latest threat information to the security and IT departments and pinpoints the organization's most critical security problems. It also shows the top threats and vulnerabilities, overall exposure levels, a snapshot of policy compliance and the top outstanding remediation tasks.
The Preemptive Defense System starts at $250,000, and is priced competitively for larger organizations. It will be available in October 2004.
