The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2012-10-04T03:14:47Z Norman ASA Named as a Gartner “Vendor to Watch” in New Market Trends Report 2012-10-04T03:14:47Z norman-asa-named-as-a-gartner-vendor-to-watch-in-new-market-trends-report Norman ASA Named as a Gartner “Vendor to Watch” in New Market Trends Report, Cites Norman Network Threat Discovery and Malware Analyzer G2 Network Protection Solutions Report Outlines Recommendations and Trends, Lists Top Ten Leaders in Advanced Threat Protection SolutionsOSLO,  October 3,  2012 – A new report issued by analyst firm Gartner, titled “Market Trends: Advanced Threat Protection Appliances, Worldwide, 2012,” lists Norman AS as a top ten “Vendor to Watch” and describes the company’s industry-leading Network Threat Discovery and Malware Analyzer G2 (MAG2) solutions.  “Large-enterprise and upper-midsize business segments in the United States and Europe continue to drive the greatest demand for advanced threat protection appliances,” the new Gartner report announces. It continues, “Government and financial sectors are leading early adoption in this market … likely supported by the regulatory mandates for security technologies and controls within these entities.”  The report is authored by Lawrence Pingree, Gartner Research Director.  Norman’s innovative Network Threat Discovery appliance is a cyberattack discovery system that sits at the network perimeter and automatically detects and collects malicious files that may have slipped past traditional security nodes. In cooperation with Norman’s Malware Analyzer G2, the appliance then rates the suspicious files by risk score and alerts the security organization of a potential problem. These files may then be analyzed by the automated Malware Analyzer G2.Malware Analyzer G2 is the industry’s only malware analysis framework to make available Hybrid SandBoxing. IT and security teams can run suspicious malware samples through the award-winning, emulated Norman SandBox, and at the same time analyze the code in the virtualized IntelliVM modules. Daily experience shows that code not deemed suspicious in a virtual environment may very well be proved harmful through emulated Microsoft Windows environment inspection. Together, Norman’s Network Threat Discovery and Malware Analyzer G2 solutions deliver the best ROI available among advanced threat protection solutions. “Senior IT and security leaders at corporations, utilities and government entities are turning to Norman Threat Discovery and Malware Analyzer G2 as part of their comprehensive strategy to aggressively address the increase in number and sophistication of cyberattacks, where teams may see as many as 100,000 malicious software files in a single day,” said Torjus Gylstorff, Vice President of Enterprise Sales with Norman AS.  “Norman’s dual solutions offer the scalability and intelligence to keep up with today’s increasingly powerful advanced perceived threats.  Gartner’s new report recommends IT and security teams put in place capabilities such as those offered through Norman’s Network Threat Discovery and  Malware Analyzer G2 solutions.” Norman research completed earlier this year quantifies the need for innovative solutions.  More than 60 percent of IT leaders surveyed fear malware is growing more sophisticated faster than they can upgrade their analysis capabilities.  In addition, 58 percent cited the growing number of threats as their biggest worry for 2012.For additional information:Capital Security SolutionsNorman ASA Master Distributor Phone: 03 9018 9600Email: sales@capitalsolutions.com.au Follow us onFacebook! New Norman Video Series Features Corporate Leaders and Security Experts to Raise Awareness during Cyber Security Awareness Month 2012-10-04T01:32:11Z new-norman-video-series-features-corporate-leaders-and-security-experts-to-raise-awareness-during-cyber-security-awareness-month New Norman Video Series Features Corporate Leaders and Security Experts to Raise Awareness during Cyber Security Awareness MonthOctober 3, 2012 by Darin Andersen To recognize October as Cyber Security Month as well as increase awareness and offer concrete solutions to today’s cyber security issues, Norman is launching a video series starting today.  The series will include interviews with several senior corporate and utility executives and many of the nation’s leading cyber security experts.  We plan to post one new video weekly through roughly the end of the year.In the premiere video, available here, I introduce the series and quickly turn it over to Joe Weiss, managing partner of Applied Control Systems, and former IT manager at the Electric Power Research Institute  (EPRI).   Please take a few minutes to watch Joe’s segment, he touches on several important developments in today’s worldwide security environment.Starting with “What scares me most,” Joe points out that prior to two years ago, security experts assumed that major cyber attacks could only be generated by nation-states.  Stuxnet quashed those assumptions.  Several organizations have placed Metasploits on the web for free, meaning a hacker no longer needs the resources of a nation-state to identify the vulnerabilities of a utility or organization’s industrial control system.   He also reminds us that SCADA and industrial control systems are not synonymous – SCADA is just one type of ICS. Focusing on “SCADA” threats is just one piece of a large puzzle.He continued by highlighting the global nature of today’s control systems, noting that many ICS vendors are based in the U.S. but sell worldwide, while many others are based overseas and sell here.  He particularly commented on China, noting China is not the significant threat many think it is.  Chinese companies have purchased control systems from all major U.S. vendors, as well as many international vendors.   In addition, companies that employ industrial control systems are globally connected; many U.S. manufacturers operate factories all over the world from the U.S., and conversely many companies based overseas remotely manage factories in the U.S.Joe closes by reminding us that solving cyber threat issues in one industry and it becomes solvable in all industries worldwide.Next week, we will feature the second in Joe Weiss’ three part series.  Joe talks specifically about the effects of cyber attacks that have occurred in the form of train crashes, gas line ruptures, and electric outages—and how solving one of these problems may well solve 80 per cent of them.One upside of Cyber Security Awareness month is the energy the security community will generate to discuss today’s latest threats, trends and solutions.  I hope you will join me in devoting time to watching our videos and sharing your comments and expertise.Tags: Cyber Security, enterprise security, Interviews, network protection, New Trends, SCADA, Security Organizations, security strategy,VulnerabilitiesFor additional information:Capital Security SolutionsNorman ASA Master Distributor Phone: 03 9018 9600Email: sales@capitalsolutions.com.au Follow us onFacebook!
