Fidelis Adds 10-Gig Security Appliances

WALTHAM, Mass. and BETHESDA, Md. -- Fidelis Security Systems, the leader in next-generation data leakage prevention (DLP) solutions, today announced the availability of two new appliances within the companys Fidelis Extrusion Prevention System® (Fidelis XPS™) line of products, enabling global enterprises to scale their prevention capabilities to 10-gigabit-based networks with comprehensive control of content anywhere it flows on the network. Since its introduction in 2002, Fidelis XPS has been the first—and only—data leakage prevention solution to deliver true gigabit-speed performance. Following in that tradition of innovation, Fidelis XPS Direct 2500 and Fidelis XPS Internal 2500 are the first products to be released in the newly created multi-gigabit-speed product line.

"The speeds of networks in global enterprises are increasing and therefore applications deployed on the network have to scale to not dilute their benefits," said Eric Ouellet, Analyst and Research VP, Gartner. "Organizations should consider the use of network data leakage prevention appliances within their networks where higher performance is required such as internal networks and data centers, in addition to faster gateways.”

According to CMP Research’s “State of 10 Gigabit Ethernet Survey”, 99% of respondents plan to deploy 10-gigabit technology, with 25% of respondents indicating it will be their core LAN and 63% planning to support their data centers on 10 gigabit. Due to the unique architecture of Fidelis XPS’ patented deep session inspection™ platform, high-performance network content analysis at multi-gigabit speed is a reality, giving enterprises the power to inspect content anywhere they desire, even at the speed of business. The resulting benefit is an enterprise’s ability to prevent the leakage of protected or sensitive information—on both internal and external networks—such as credit card data, personal identity information, classified data, digital assets, and intellectual property, regardless of the speed of the network.

“Enterprises need to control the flow of sensitive information both inside of and leaving their networks without compromising performance, and this is especially true for high-speed networks,” said Peter George, CEO, Fidelis Security Systems. “Once again, Fidelis XPS is leading the way in technology innovation by providing global enterprises with a powerful solution to stop data leakage and protect their brand, intellectual property, and resources—even on 10-gigabit networks.”
