Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from netForensics, Inc.

    EDISON, N.J., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- netForensics.com, Inc., a pioneer in
 Security Information Management (SIM), announced today the release of
 netForensics 2.3.  The new version enables user organizations to more
 effectively and efficiently manage security devices by using new
 standards-based communications methods and a new distributed architecture.
     netForensics 2.3 provides high-performance ActiveEnvoy(TM) XML-based
 technology enabling cross-device relationship analysis.  The architecture
 allows enterprises the power to obtain previously inaccessible information
 from their heterogeneous security devices by drawing relationships among
 events occurring in diverse parts of a network or at application level.  As a
 result, an enterprise can better maximize its investments in existing security
 infrastructures, while controlling the costs and risks of doing business in
 today's open and networked world.
     "netForensics is the only Security Information Management company that
 really understands the security data being generated by infrastructure
 devices," said netForensics CEO Rajeev Khanolkar.  "netForensics 2.3 provides
 a unique opportunity to give depth to existing Incident Response Plans and a
 new standard that significantly reduces the cost of deploying and enforcing IT
 security."
     At the same time, netForensics 2.3 also announced support for additional
 security point devices, including Cisco VPN, Checkpoint Firewall-1, Entercept
 and NT and Windows 2000 Web Servers.  Those supported devices include
 firewalls, VPN, application security, intrusion detection systems, and host
 integrity devices.
     "Robust and complementary security solutions are a must for e-business,"
 said Lou Ryan, CEO of Entercept Security Technologies. "The information
 management provided by netForensics' 2.3, coupled with Entercept's
 award-winning, host-based server protection, provides customers with a
 comprehensive solution for streamlining security resources."
