SecureNet Gig is an easy to deploy solution that enables intrusion detection on gigabit enterprise networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: INTZ), a global provider of enterprise security solutions for the information-driven economy, today unveiled its newest product, Secure Net Gig, a gigabit network intrusion detection system. Secure Net Gig brings the benefits of’s highly accurate SecureNet Pro intrusion detection system (IDS) to enterprise borders and DMZs where gigabit backbones are prevalent. SecureNet Gig bundles SecureNet Pro on a 1U-high security appliance for fast and easy deployment, monitoring networks that operate at Gigabit speed while dramatically reducing the occurrences of false positives.

SecureNet Gig provides all of the accuracy, tune-ability and usability of SecureNet Pro with the added speed improvements to provide industry verified 98% attack detection at 700Mbps, with attacks still being recognised at theoretical wire-speed, providing better protection at higher speeds than any other solution on the market today.

“With today’s announcement SecureNet Pro becomes the first family of network intrusion detection appliances truly capable of covering the enterprise network from its edge routers to remote offices,” stated Brain Milnes, European General Manager of

“Unlike other solutions on the market, SecureNet Gig is delivered as a ‘plug and protect’ appliance, combining best of breed network intrusion detection technology and switching fabric within a single cost-effective device that is optimised for enterprise implementation.”

As part of the SecureNet Pro family of products, SecureNet Gig completes the range of network IDS appliances with the 100Mbps SecureNet 8001 and SecureNet PDS. All SecureNet sensors report to the SecureNet Pro centralised manager providing maximum IDS reach with the least impact on IT and security resources.

"'s SecureNet Gig intrusion detection system proved a top performer, reaching a top throughput of 986.94 Mbps, unidirectionally, which is by far the highest speed Miercom has observed on an IDS tested in our labs, to date," said Rob Smithers, President of Miercom. "In addition to this stellar throughput, the SecureNet Gig also delivered excellent performance in detecting various attacks - snagging up to 98% of them at 690.86 Mbps. The SecureNet Gig IDS is also easy to set up and use and it's housed in a compact 1U appliance."

SecureNet Gig is a 1U, 19” rack-mountable appliance that uses a fibre optic Gigabit interface to connect to the network segment to be monitored. An additional 100Mbps interface isolates the sensor-to-manager communications from the “sniffer” interface to ensure complete security of the IDS. With the quick addition of an IP address and a few minutes of verification, SecureNet Gig brings a new level of network intelligence and security to the very edge of enterprise networks.

This full line of IDS appliances all report to the SecureNet Pro management console, providing a blanket of high-value, detailed information about the use and usage of the enterprise network. This “highest common denominator” data from the SecureNet Pro family of products provides greatly enhanced security and network intelligence to increase the overall security of the enterprise and the value and efficacy of existing firewall and VPN technologies.

"First generation intrusion detection solutions are too easily blinded by the normal traffic load on an enterprise network and are completely overwhelmed in carrier environments. However, before going blind, the products also produce reams of false positives.'s Gigabit version of SecureNet Pro pierces through the fog of high-speed networks without overloading IS administrators with false positives," said Eric Hemmendinger, Senior Research analyst for The Aberdeen Group.
SecureNet Gig Features:

· SecureNet Gig covers the bandwidth that lives at the edge of the enterprise network, the DMZ and in the data centre providing critical coverage for the enterprise and its most critical information assets.

· SecureNet Gig appliance is a 733Mhz dual Pentium III with 256Mb RAM and a 30Gb hard drive.

· SecureNet Gig provides network intrusion detection with 98% attack detection at 700Mpbs falling slightly to 88% attack detection at 800Mbps with significant attack detection up to 986Mbps, the theoretical wire speed of Gigabit networks. Results verified by Mier Communications Inc.
