January 29, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - January 29, 2009 – nCircle, the leading provider of automated security and compliance auditing solutions, today announced the release of a new high speed, highly scalable appliance for large network assessments. The constant growth of enterprise networks and the increasing amounts of critical financial and personal information that is stored on or traverses these networks has increased the need for continuously up to date security risk and compliance visibility. The changing threat environment necessitates an accurate, high performance solution capable of high speed, continuous enterprise scanning of the largest global networks.

nCircle provides the world's most comprehensive suite of solutions for automated security and compliance auditing. A foundational element of nCircle Suite360, the nCircle IP360™ vulnerability management system is delivered on hardened appliances, enabling rapid deployment, centralized management and a low total cost of ownership. The new nCircle VnE 4100 appliance is the central IP360 console for managing network discovery and application and vulnerability assessments. The VnE 4100 works with nCircle DP3000 scanning appliances to scan networks of virtually any size with unprecedented speed and accuracy.

The new VnE 4100 replaces the previously available VnE 3100 and joins the VnE 1100 and VnE 5100 consoles which are designed for medium to large enterprises, respectively. The three VnE platforms and native expandability of IP360 enables customers to easily and cost-effectively grow the solution as their needs expand.

The VnE 4100 is a standard 19" 2U chassis for easy rack-mount datacenter installation and low management overhead. The VnE 4100 features multi-core processors, high speed raid array storage and dual power supplies for high availability – all features designed for global networks like nCircle's over 4,000 enterprise customers.

The VnE 4100 is immediately available from nCircle and nCircle resellers.
