Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA) today announced eTrust Internet Defense, which CA claims to be the first integrated solution to protect mission-critical e-business from potentially destructive cyber attacks and security breaches.

CA’s new integrated solution aims to provide a holistic approach for a secure e-business environment, with a breadth of products and services that address the vulnerabilities inherent in running a business on the Internet today.

HONG KONG - Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA), an e-business solutions provider, today announced eTrust Internet Defense, which CA claims to be the first integrated solution to protect mission-critical e-business from potentially destructive cyber attacks and security breaches.

eTrust Internet Defense delivers a set of tools that detect, analyze, warn, prevent and cure any attack - including malicious mobile code, worms, viruses or intruders and hackers attempting to destroy, deface or bring down e-business.

A recent study by PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates the damage of these attacks at nearly US$1.5 trillion this year alone.

"Recent denial of service attacks have clearly shown that anti-virus software and firewall solutions alone cannot fully protect e-business," said Simon Perry, CA vice president, security solutions. "Without a proactive and comprehensive security solution, any e-business is subject to attack. eTrust Internet Defense delivers the ability to manage risks associated with opening access to internal systems vital to conducting business."

eTrust Internet Defense includes:

  • eTrust Firewall - enables enterprises to provide authorized users with Internet/intranet/extranet access to mission-critical applications while keeping unauthorized users out.
  • eTrust Content Inspection - includes real-time attack intervention, as well as automatic detection, blocking and notification of all types of malicious content such as Java, ActiveX and viruses.
  • eTrust Intrusion Detection - provides real-time, non-intrusive detection, policy-based alerts and automatic prevention, using the "detect, alert, prevent" approach to safeguarding networks.
  • eTrust VPN (Virtual Private Network) - enables enterprise to keep e-business systems safe against network hackers.
  • eTrust Anti-virus (InoculateIT) - provides real-time, enterprise-wide protection against today's computer viruses.
  • eTrust Internet Defense integrates into existing security solutions and allows enterprises to migrate to the complete tool set. In conjunction with eTrust Internet Defense, CA offers risk assessment services that assist the e-business in security infrastructure planning.
