"There are a lot of products that can capture user transactions at some level of detail," wrote Peter Stephenson, SC Magazine Labs director. "That level of detail varies with the type of technology that the product employs. It takes an innovator to capture that data at the deepest level, do it without a performance hit, and make the data available for analysis in a meaningful way. That is exactly what PacketMotion, our innovator in (Access Control) does – and they do it well."
PacketMotion's UAM solution, PacketSentry, is designed for protection and audit of the internal network – monitoring, controlling and logging all network activity and assuming that no network traffic is trusted, including that of IT administrators. Its unique architecture with no agents or in-line appliances reduces both deployment effort and risk to production systems. With PacketSentry, organizations have a single solution for efficient internal compliance and audit controls, and real-time policy enforcement to best protect the internal network.
"It is an honor to be recognized by SC Magazine as one of the most innovative security companies of 2010," said Paul Smith, PacketMotion CEO.
