Company Expanding Existing Assure6™ Product Line to Include Assure6™/4000 and Assure6™/2000 in Support of Higher Performance Bandwidth

FAIRFAX, Va., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Salient Commercial Solutions, Inc. (Salient), a Salient Federal Solutions Company providing information technology and engineering solutions in the cyber security and agile development commercial markets, today announced two new cyber security solutions to its patent pending Assure6™ product line designed to prevent, detect, and block IPv6 malicious attacks through IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

The new Assure6™/4000 will utilize CloudShield’s Deep Packet Processing technology on the CS4000 to strengthen IPv6 security and mitigate risks operating at increased throughputs up to 10Gbps. The new Assure6™/2000, for CloudShield Deep Packet Processing technology on the CS2000, will provide enhanced Policy Manager features and Log Viewer for event viewing.

Federal and commercial networks are becoming more and more saturated at the typical current one Gigabit per second bandwidth (Gbps). Salient is enhancing its technology to support agencies that are in the process of upgrading bandwidth capabilities within the next 18 months to accommodate up to 10Gbps. Significant throughput increase will result in an escalation of threats and risks that go beyond solutions designed for 1Gbps. Salient, building upon the successful deployment of Assure6™, is prepared to address the growing number of federal and commercial agencies that will need to do the same and help mitigate IPv6 risks operating at increased throughputs up to 10Gbps.

“IPv6 vulnerabilities continue to be a stealth threat, going unmonitored and undetected,” says Dr. Bob Friedenberg, Chief Technology Officer of Salient. “As agencies and enterprises are required to expand their Ethernet bandwidth to handle the massive amount of Internet traffic and big data, this will leave an even larger hole for cybercriminals to do harm. Providing Assure6™ on CloudShield technology enhances our ability to secure information regardless of traffic type and volume, so we can mitigate customers’ exposure.”

Assure6™ is the most trusted intrusion prevention and detection system that safeguards IPv6 traffic. It is the only platform providing the level of protection necessary to safely deploy or block IPv6 traffic in your network. Assure6™ identifies IPv6 traffic that is tunneled through existing IPv4 networks preventing the covert use of IPv6 communications. It enables a safe and secure transition from IPv4 to IPv6 by detecting and preventing known as well as new security threats.
