--Intelliden Software Will Reduce Costs and Provide More Secure Network Access--
Intelliden Corporation, the intelligent networking company, today announced that Sandia National Laboratories, a contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy, is using the Intelliden R-Series Security Management™ solution in a field trial to further secure the integrity of its network.
“Working for the Department of Energy, network security is paramount,” said Curtis Keliiaa, senior member of the Sandia National Labs technical staff. “After much research and rigorous testing, we selected the Intelliden R-Series for field trial because of its network security capabilities. For protecting the network and upholding network integrity, Intelliden offers obvious advantages.”
Sandia National Labs approached Intelliden with the objective to protect its mission-critical, highly sensitive data by guarding the network against unauthorized users. Manually managed access control lists offer a static measure of security but cannot be dynamically responsive unless controlled and managed in real time. Dynamic management of multiple access requests to restricted areas of the network is also a requirement. The Intelliden R-Series software offers the automated configuration management capability necessary to achieve dynamic network management.
“We are positioning Intelliden’s Security Management solution to address these issues,” added Keliiaa. Identity-based access management controls who has access to the network, and policy-based change management ensures authenticated users can only implement the changes they’re authorized to make. These access decisions will be immediate and automatic, based on predefined network policies created by Sandia.
Intelliden’s policy-based network security protects network assets from unwanted access. Automation of security management significantly reduces the risk of network break-in or inadvertent errors from unauthorized personnel. This allows network administration to focus on more strategic network issues.
“Sandia has the enormous task of developing science-based technologies to support national security, so it’s not surprising that it is seeking to boost its own security with intelligent networking technology,” said Chris Turner, Intelliden vice president of sales and support. “With the Intelliden R-Series, Sandia can use its network polices to control access to the network, and respond in real time to potential threats and intrusions.”
In addition to the Security Management pillar, the Intelliden R-Series solution is comprised of three other product modules: the Configuration and Control pillar, which automates manual network processes; the Provisioning and Activation pillar, which automates complex service provisioning processes and reduces time to market for new services; and the Auditing and Reporting pillar, which provides complete visibility into network control providing dramatic improvements in compliance and conformance within a network.
Industry experts estimate that over half of all network security break-ins occur from manual device configuration. Automation of the network management functions, via the Intelliden R-Series software, helps eliminate the chances of manual errors.
