HoneyPoint Security Server Creates Proactive Protection

Columbus, Ohio; May 19, 2008 – MicroSolved, Inc. is pleased to announce the general availability of HoneyPoint™ Security Server version 2.50.

This latest release of their best-of-breed corporate honeypot product expands its capabilities to include new types of bleeding-edge protection in the form of HornetPoints and HoneyPoint Trojans. HornetPoints introduce a pioneering and patent-pending approach called “defensive fuzzing” that identifies and stops attacker activity in its earliest stage of reconnaissance, in some cases, literally eliminating bot-net and zero-day attacks before they have a chance to begin and propagate. HoneyPoint Trojans, modeled after the counter-intelligence efforts of nation states, enables organizations to create pockets of “dis-information” that, once touched, create a forensic tracking capability that follows it’s movement inside the network or out. Imagine the ability to literally turn the tables on attackers as you follow how this data is spread and used as it moves around the world.

“The addition of HornetPoints to the product really takes things to a new level. For the first time, organizations can proactively create protection that is robust, effective and capable of automatically defending them against many forms of attack.”, declared Brent Huston, CEO of MicroSolved. “Add the HoneyPoint Trojans to that mix and you finally have organizations that are capable of removing the layers of confidentiality, integrity and availability from attackers. Used properly and creatively, the product lends itself well to the creation of a corporate counter intelligence program.”, Huston added.

“Any organization that wants to improve their traditional security approach from a  “defense-only” posture to a new and pro-active mode of protection, simply must have a look at HoneyPoint. I don’t care how many layers of defense you have… it’s time to play some offense.”, said Allan Bergen, Business Development Director of MicroSolved.
