ObjectSecurity, the leader for model-driven security management today announced that it signed a contract with Promia, Inc., a leading provider of intrusion detection and security technologies to government and industry. As part of the contract, Promia and ObjectSecurity will jointly develop a next-generation IT security intrusion detection and enforcement product, using their respective products ObjectSecurity OpenPMF 2.0 and Promia Raven. The planned integrated demonstrator will be presented to the US Navy in 2009. This project is particularly relevant for DoD’s adoption of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). ObjectSecurity and Promia already announced a strategic partnership mid February 2007 and signed a mutual reseller agreement late March 2007. The agreement makes market access for ObjectSecurity in the U.S. and for Promia in Europe easier.
Dr. Ulrich Lang, CEO and co-founder of ObjectSecurity commented: “We are extremely excited to be part of this ground-breaking project, which has the potential to revolutionize security policy management, intrusion detection, and SOA security”.
John Mullen, CEO and co-founder of Promia added:” This Agreement helps move our existing product line into new areas by extending our information assurance and remote asset monitoring capabilities by adding enterprise policy management”.
On the network, the joint product will integrate Promia’s network hardware appliances with ObjectSecurity’s OpenPMF PEPs. In the graphical central manager, the joint product will integrate ObjectSecurity’s OpenPMF model-driven security manager with Promia’s IASM graphical console and intrusion detection console. The joint product will enable highly intuitive business-driven policy management, robust enforcement, and anomaly detection in mission-critical industries with less false positives.
