Organizations Gain Real-Time, 360 Degree View of Network Activity and Access Control with NetBeat MON and NetBeat NAC

HANOVER, Md., August 4, 2014 – Hexis Cyber Solutions (Hexis), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: KEYW), and a provider of advanced cybersecurity solutions for commercial companies and government agencies, today launched its NetBeat product line featuring solutions built to provide organizations with simplified network monitoring, analysis and control. NetBeat MON and NetBeat NAC deliver 360 degree network visibility in a set of easy-to-use applications that improve organizational productivity.

Several IT trends are driving the need for increased in-depth, network visibility. BYOD, virtualization and cloud computing have changed the landscape of the traditional network and enabled many new unauthorized devices to attach to networks thereby increasing security risk and potentially affecting network performance. The pressure is on IT professionals to provide comprehensive, real-time insight into network activity, often with limited resources. Hexis NetBeat solutions meet demand for increased network insight at a price fit for small- to mid-sized businesses and those operating within the government space without sacrificing functionality.

“Quick and easy access to real time information is imperative to comprehensive network analysis and control, which is now more important than ever as irregular or unauthorized access could signal that sensitive information is at risk,” said Chris Fedde, President of Hexis Cyber Solutions. “We developed the NetBeat product line as a complete package to provide security and network professionals the network visibility and insight they require in easy-to-use applications. By deploying NetBeat MON and NetBeat NAC, organizations can boost overall continuous network awareness, a critical first step in a proactive approach to better IT security.”

NetBeat MON 
As a multi-functional appliance, NetBeat MON provides a broad set of network monitoring and diagnostics capabilities including advanced intrusion detection, forensics packet capture, network flow and network analysis capabilities. Leveraging best-of-breed tools from the thriving open source community like Suricata, Snorby and Wireshark, paired with proprietary easy-to-use software, IT professionals use NetBeat MON to make informed network management and data protection decisions. The solution easily integrates into an organization’s existing infrastructure and because it is built for simplicity, it drastically reduces deployment, and ongoing maintenance costs. This appliance also delivers on affordable scale; as organizations’ needs evolve, users can deploy a “master” console that monitors the network traffic of field sites or remote office locations from a central location.

NetBeat NAC 
To gain control over their networks, IT professionals deploy NetBeat NAC to automatically block unauthorized devices. NetBeat NAC delivers increased security by identifying all devices in real-time, alerting IT administrators to unauthorized devices and quarantining or blocking those devices, tackling IT threats before the network is compromised. Unlike other network access control solutions that are cumbersome and complex to deploy, NetBeat NAC is easy-to-use and is truly “plug-and-play,” enabling organizations to block unwanted devices within minutes after activation.

Pricing and Availability 
NetBeat MON and NetBeat NAC are currently available exclusively through Hexis Cyber Solutions’ network of qualified channel partners. NetBeat MON starts at $11,450 for a single 1U appliance. NetBeat
NAC is priced as low as $5,495 for the Branch Pro with the ability to cost effectively scale into major enterprises with thousands of endpoints. For more information, please visit hexiscyber.com/netbeat.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
