SAN FRANCISCO, RSA Conference Booth 1604, Feb. 14 -- Lucid Security, creator of ipAngel, the world's only self-tuning intrusion prevention solution, today announced it will debut ipAngel X3V , the latest version of its industry-acclaimed Intrusion Prevention appliance, at the 14th Annual RSA Conference and Exhibition (Booth 1604) this week in San Francisco. ipAngel X3V will boast new Anti-Virus capabilities and added functionality to eliminate spyware, adware and pornware, and is available to customers in April.

Lucid also will announce two significant upgrades to its ipAngel X3 appliance: a Threat Remediation Dashboard, now available; and Central Management System, available in April. The new release and upgrade combination make ipAngel the industry's most comprehensive intrusion prevention solution.

"We are pleased to announce these important additions to our ipANGEL X3 product line," said Jonathan Palmer, Lucid Security's Chairman and CEO. "Today, ipANGEL X3 is the world's finest intrusion prevention solution. It offers comprehensive asset centric protection, is self-tuning and requires almost zero maintenance. With this additional protection against downloaded viruses, spyware, and adware and the introduction of our central management system, we are clearly responding to customer needs to stay ahead of the surging volume of malicious activity that threatens their networks."

According to Lucid customer John W. Cahill, Jr., CISSP, senior network security engineer, Piedmont Natural Gas, upgrading to ipAngel X3V is a natural extension of his team's ipAngel deployment.

"We like building complex, layered networks as part of our best practices approach to protecting critical assets," Cahill said. "Lucid has been an instrumental partner in providing a self-tuning, effortless intrusion prevention solution we can count on with confidence, and deploy within 15-30 minutes anywhere on the network."

ipAngel is the first intrusion prevention solution to integrate traditional intrusion prevention technology with vulnerability assessment, transparent (Layer 2) firewalling and multi-vector correlation (correlating vulnerability data, access control rules, & attack rules) in one interoperable platform using its patented Adaptive Intelligence process.

The ipAngel X3 family is comprised of three highly scalable, reliable and deployable models: AVS-100, AVS-400 and AVS-1000. All three appliances feature an easy-to-operate LCD panel, run hardened Linux operating system and are configured with add-on fail over bypass PCI Network cards for higher availability.

Specific ipAngel X3V customer features and benefits include:

-- Gateway anti-virus capabilities designed to eliminate spyware, adware, and pornware downloads.

-- Transparent installation into the network with no IP address, routing, MX or DNS record changes necessary.

Specific feature upgrades to ipAngel X3 include:

-- Threat Remediation Dashboard featuring outstanding visualization designed to track vulnerabilities from cradle to grave, assisting security personnel in focusing on the most critical vulnerabilities and patches for just-in-time remediation.

-- Central Management System for enterprise-wide management, monitoring and reporting from a single console, with flexible architecture to meet enterprise and service provider management and reporting needs.

"In contrast with traditional IPS solutions, which analyze every packet against a list of thousands of exploits, ipANGEL X3V's unique predictive protection model is based on a proactive, asset-centric approach that eliminates wasted time and effort," said Vik Phatak, CTO, Lucid Security Corporation. "ipAngel X3V protects assets from attacks that match the resulting threat profile using multiple methods including vulnerability-based rules, exploit-based signatures, behavioral patterns, and protocol compliance enforcement."
