OTTAWA, Ontario, August 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Validian Corporation (OTCQB: VLDI; "Validian" or the "Company"), a leading innovator in cyber-security technology, is pleased to announce that the Company and Solana Networks, an innovative technology vendor, have partnered to develop Cyber Situational Awareness solutions aimed at improving the security posture of Enterprise Organizations and Service Providers.

The range, complexity and impact of cyber threats faced by IT networks continues to increase. Organizations require cyber situational awareness tools that provide  up-to-date visual maps of their IT network, combined with cyber security threat information gathered from an array of security sensors deployed on their network.

Solana Networks is a leading provider of network discovery and mapping solutions through its SmartHawk product line. When combined with its innovative SmartFlow product, a solution for detecting cyber threats such as zero day attacks using anomaly detection and machine learning, SmartHawk creates a powerful cyber situational awareness solution for these organizations.

Solana's open architecture allows SmartHawk and SmartFlow to export network maps and cyber threat information to third party-situational awareness systems for further analytics and automated network defense.

Validian Protect is security middleware with features that include the ability to secure the access and transmission of data across the network and govern policies around security services and data communication. The Validian Protect SDK (Software Development Kit) enables vendors to rapidly integrate security policies when integrating data from a variety of systems across the network.

As part of the solution, Validian and Solana are integrating SmartHawk, SmartFlow, and Validian Protect as part of a Splunk Cyber Situational Awareness System suitable for deployment in Enterprise Networks and Service Providers.

Bruce Benn, Chief Executive Officer of Validian, commented, "Solana, widely recognized as cyber security experts in Enterprise, Telecommunications, Defense, Military, and Government sectors, has been exploring the integration of our technology into their Splunk Cyber Situational Awareness System in-depth.  After close review and thorough testing, ValidianProtect was chosen over other standard crypto protocols, for integration into Solana's suite of solutions. To have such an established cyber security expert recognize Validian's ability to ensure the secure access and transmission of data across a network and to govern and manage security policies around that data, and then to choose us as a partner to provide such  critical capabilities, is a significant endorsement. We look forward to continuing our work with Solana and other partners to bring only the highest-level of cyber security to IP networks around the globe as part of  our overall plan to build ongoing sources of revenue while increasing our market footprint."
