AbirNet's Sessionwall-3 Now OPSEC(TM) Certified; SessionWall-3 Extends and Leverages Check Point(TM) FireWall-1(R) Network Protection

Apr 28, 1998, 01:00 ET from AbirNet Ltd.

    DALLAS, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- AbirNet Ltd. will announce OPSEC(TM)
 Certification of SessionWall-3 at Networld+Interop, May 5-7, 1998 at the Las
 Vegas Convention Center, where the product will be featured in the Check Point
 Software Technologies Booth #4987 and the AbirNet Booth #6131.
     SessionWall-3 is a comprehensive network protection software solution that
 extends the traditional firewall blocking services with Internet network usage
 reporting, security capabilities ranging from intrusion detection to
 application level blocking, content specific actions, and network usage policy
 controls in a single, integrated, easy-to-use package.
     Check Point's Open Platform for Secure Enterprise Connectivity (OPSEC(TM))
 platform delivers the industry's only enterprise security framework through
 which customers can easily, seamlessly, and selectively integrate a full
 spectrum of security applications, defined and driven by a single, central
 enterprise-wide security policy.
     OPSEC Certification, conferred upon successful completion of the
 appropriate testing process, provides an interface between SessionWall-3 and
 the Check Point(TM) FireWall-1(R) enterprise security solution.
     SessionWall-3 has been granted OSPEC Certification based on its usage of
 the OPSEC SDK to extend and add additional functionality to the overall
 security solution.  The OPSEC Certification process involves testing
 SessionWall-3 against a well-defined criteria ensuring the overall solution
 works seamlessly to the end-user.
     "Companies using Check Point's FireWall-1 and AbirNet's SessionWall-3 can
 now effectively exploit the strengths of both products to provide more
 comprehensive network usage intelligence and implement even more flexible
 network usage controls and responses," says Kurt Ziegler, CEO of AbirNet.
 "OPSEC gives our customers the best of both worlds -- low-level protocol
 blocking and dynamic application specific blocking in response to detected
 attacks and other network usage abuses."
     SessionWall-3 provides an easy to implement and administrate way to
 monitor, filter, block, log, audit, scan and report a network's and a specific
 user's Internet and Intranet activities.  It includes a comprehensive list of
 intrusion patterns, a built-in viewer for session content analysis, a world-
 class Java/ActiveX malicious applet detection engine, an ISCA certified virus
 detection scanner, an extensive URL control list, a network policy management
 tool for promoting productivity and avoiding legal or contractual exposures
 associated with e-mail abuses, and a patent pending static, dynamic and
 real-time "unobtrusive" blocking mechanism to block inappropriate sessions.
 SessionWall-3 Release 3 detects sophisticated intrusions patterns including
 sweep attacks, attacks hidden inside sophisticated TCP transmission techniques
 (e.g., fragmentation and overlapping buffers) and service denial attacks
 directed against Windows 95, Windows NT and (in the case of LAND.c) Cisco
 routers and switches such as LAND.c, WinNuke and Teardrop.  The product also
 includes support for Japanese and Arabic, allowing users to view e-mails and
 web pages written in these languages inside the SessionWall-3 viewer when
 using their respective Windows software.
     SessionWall-3 users are able to download new security updates from
 AbirNet's web site, making it easy for network administrators to equip the
 product to detect newly identified service denial attack patterns.
     SessionWall-3 can be installed on any network-attached Windows 95 or NT
 machine and can process the network traffic from one or more Ethernet, Token
 Ring and FDDI local network segments.  It can be used as a standalone product
 or to complement a firewall.  It features plug-and-play installation, requires
 no network configuration changes and introduces no network performance
 overloads.  SessionWall-3 includes technologies developed by eSafe, Inc.,
 Finjan Software Ltd., and Secure Computing Corporation.
     SessionWall-3 is available through AbirNet, distributors, agents and
 system integrators worldwide.  Prices start at $1,495.  For more information,
