EOS Payment Selects Secure Computing’s Secure Firewall Services

Secure Computing, a provider of enterprise gateway security services, has announced that EOS Payment Solutions has selected the company's Secure Firewall to ensure security and manageability, while complying with the new payment card industry data security standard.

Since the company's formation, EOS Payment Solutions has employed Secure Computing's Secure Firewall, which fulfills all firewall-related payment card industry data security standard (PCI DSS) requirements. Secure Firewall provides application-layer filtering, encrypted data transfer and supports stringent authentication specifications, while the reporting tool enables users to routinely monitor network activity.

In addition, Secure Firewall's intrusion detection and prevention functionality identifies and logs attacks on the network as well as occurring irregularities. Using this data, the administrator can progressively improve the security of the corporate network.

The technology also blocks potential front-end threats for complete protection. Secure Firewall sets a new standard for proactive threat detection by integrating the TrustedSource technology into every firewall.

As a result, EOS Payment Solutions' network benefits from real-time behavior monitoring of dynamic URLs, domains, IPs, message content and images. The resulting reputation scores enable proactive blocking of spam, spyware, viruses and malware at the gateway - well before they ever gain access to the network.
