Fortune 100 Science Company Introduces Security Technology to Manage External Connections and Reduce the Threat of Virus Introduction by Third Party Vendors

RSA Conference, San Jose, CA, February 14, 2006 -- DuPont (NYSE: DD) has introduced the eGuardPost(TM) appliance from e-DMZ Security (Booth #2105) to provide robust security for external connections. eGuardPost provides the customer with granular access control as well as full capture and replay capabilities for remote Windows RDP or standard SSH sessions. The clientless appliance-based solution ensures remote connections are controlled and audited, while the proxy architecture reduces the chance of viruses being introduced through partner connections.

"The session capture and replay capability of eGuardPost is unique in the remote access space. This combined with the fact that the connection is proxied allows us to achieve a greater level of control with partners who need to access our network," says Larry Brock, CISO for DuPont. "eGuardPost also ensures the connection is limited to only allow access to the resources required."

A comprehensive Remote Vendor Access(TM) (RVA) solution addresses the unique challenges presented by vendor connections by including the ability to tightly control access, strong auditing, protection from malware, and clientless implementation. e-DMZ Security introduces eGuardPost as the leading solution to address this issue.

"Remote Vendor Access (RVA) describes the broad issue created by vendors utilizing the same VPN connection as an employee," remarks Kris Zupan, CEO/CTO of e-DMZ Security. "Many companies have no way of viewing what a vendor is doing when connected to their internal network. eGuardPost gives the ability to see what the vendor is doing, and at the same time limit them to only what they are required to access. Just as you would not allow a guest to wander freely through your home, a vendor should be held to a different level of access than an employee."
