RICHARDSON, Texas-, Inc. (Nasdaq:INTZ), a leading provider of enterprise security solutions for the information-driven economy, today announced availability of a new product bundle featuring SecureNet Pro and the PDS network security appliance designed to simplify intrusion detection deployment.

SecureNet™ PDS comes pre-installed with the latest version of's SecureNet Pro network intrusion detection system, providing enterprises with both a powerful and easily deployable security solution.

With ever increasing threats of cyber attacks from inside and outside of the network and with more business being conducted electronically between partners and remote offices, intrusion detection is an integral component of the security mix.

“Traditionally, network IDSes were banished to the data centre of server room because of the large size of the appliance or PC required to run them,” said Tim Kinnear, president and CEO at “The SecureNet PDS is only 8 ½ x 11 inches - the size of a piece of paper- and just 1U high. It's an appliance that truly extends the reach of intrusion detection to remote and branch offices as well as going deeper into the corporate network to protect a corporation’s most valuable information assets with an easily deployable, affordable and high performance solution.”'s SecureNet PDS appliance bundled solution delivers carrier-grade intrusion detection that provides 100% attack detection on even the most saturated 100Mbps networks. By bundling SecureNet Pro on the PDS appliance, significantly reduces the time and cost of IDS deployment. The PDS appliances use hardened Red Hat Linux and open Intel architecture for fast security and application updates and optimum performance.

The SecureNet PDS bundle is also available as a PilotPack – which includes a laptop pre-installed with the SecureNet Pro management console for immediate staging and deployment. SecureNet PDS PilotPacks come in three, five and ten sensor packs with the management console laptop at special introductory pricing.

“Time, money and physical space are all in short supply for IS decision-makers looking to reduce operational costs,” said Eric Hemmendinger, senior analyst - information security at Aberdeen Group. “ is providing relief in all three areas with the introduction of its PDS appliance with intrusion detection capabilities. The company is shortening the time and effort required for deployment, lowering the price, and using less real estate in data centres and remote offices.”
