An Unparalleled End-to-End SIEM-Based Snort and Suricata IDS Solution

SEATTLE, June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Tactical FLEX, Inc., a global provider of information security, vulnerability and risk management software solutions, today announced the debut of Aanval SAS™, a powerful automated Situational Awareness System designed to raise the bar by providing complete end-to-end network visibility across physical and virtual environments, enhancing network defenses, thwarting advanced security threats, and identifying real threats and vulnerabilities before cyber criminals find them. Aanval SAS™ is the combination of the most advanced SIEM features coupled with the newly released Network Host Scanner, Rogue Host Detection, and Offensive Reconnaissance™ that take full advantage of Nmap, the industry’s most well-known and accomplished port scanning utility to perform both automated and on-request network reconnaissance. Network host availability, IP, and service scanning, as well as OS fingerprinting are now also available directly within Aanval®.

The new Aanval SAS™ solution ties in with the Responsible Security Package which provides enterprises of all sizes with a complete, scalable, and affordable end-to-end security solution for Snort and Suricata IDS that can adapt to the latest security threats, new vulnerabilities, BYOD implementations, and everyday network challenges.

Tactical FLEX, Inc. is committed to ensuring our customers derive the greatest possible value from their Aanval SAS™ investment and have the opportunity to secure all of their company networks and security infrastructures across the board. With annual unlimited sensor capacity, organizations and businesses of all network sizes are no longer limited by sensor cost and can now monitor every aspect of their environment.

SMBs and large enterprises can now easily deploy an effective market-leading end-to-end network security solution that can also store nearly an unlimited number of security events within the console.
