SecureTrust Corporation Launches Keystone Network Intelligence System for Financial Institutions

San Antonio, TX - 8 December 2006

Network protection targeted towards small and mid-sized institutions now easier and more affordable than ever

SecureTrust Corporation, a global leader in providing high-quality security solutions for organizations requiring secure communications, today announced the launch of the Keystone Network Intelligence System, a managed Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Protection System (IDS/IPS) solution for small and mid-sized financial institutions. The advanced system proactively protects networks, delivering enterprise-quality capabilities in an affordable and simple package.

Financial institutions are under pressure to ensure adherence to security compliance and regulations. However, most firms underestimate their security needs and overestimate their current level of protection.

"In our experience, we find that eighty percent of financial institutions think they are compliant," says Scott Harris, President of SecureTrust. "In fact, only twenty percent probably are, and ninety percent could significantly benefit from a system like the Keystone Network Intelligence System."

"We've designed it with small and mid-sized financial institutions in mind. By relying on Keystone, firms do away with costly overhead and staff. And managing the system is a snap. At the end of the day, it's really about peace of mind for yourself and your clients."

Highlights of the Keystone Network Intelligence System include:
-24/7 IDS monitoring and real-time incident response; escalation of unauthorized activities and security events -sophisticated threat detection engine protecting at the network layer and resisting IDS evasion techniques -proven security event correlation technology which accurately extracts threats while minimizing false positives -advanced detection through stateful and compound signatures, protocol anomaly, and backdoor detection -plugs into your current infrastructure and works seamlessly with major firewall and managed switch vendor offerings

"At Lone Star Capital Bank, security is at the forefront of our concerns each and every day," says John Theiss, Chief Technology Officer of Lone Star. "When we began the search for a security solution, we were impressed with the power and capabilities of the Keystone Network Intelligence System. It goes far beyond simple protection, and offers us the ability to analyze and monitor our networks around the clock for any potential threats."
