New York, NY (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
osProtection is the brainchild of Tom Nianios, a highly experienced security architect at Clone Systems with a desire to give something back to the industry.
The first phase of osProtection consists of three enterprise level deliverables: osDiscover – vulnerability scanning | osProtect – IDS & IPS | and osCollect – SIEM log monitoring. “osDiscover was recently launched at the SC World Congress in NYC and the feedback was phenomenal,” explains Clone Systems’ VP of Marketing, Sally Wigham. According to the team present at the osProtection project launch, the general feedback included comments such as: “This is the best GUI I’ve seen on any network security tool” and “I can’t believe there is no cost to use this. Thank you. This will save us thousands of dollars each year.”
“I’ve been constantly asked the same question – Why are you doing this as a free service and how will it benefit Clone Systems? And my answer is simple – Clone wants to give back to the community and deliver value to the marketplace. Our hope is that the Open Source community will continue to embrace this exciting initiative and keep working with us to make the internet safer, which will help businesses grow and make people lives easier. Clone also envisions that through working with the Open Source community we can learn from the breadth of talent out there and really start to create new solutions that are cutting edge in technology, first class in look and feel, and up to date with what the industry needs today. We’re constantly frustrated by the lapse in time between what the marketplace place demands and when the industry can deliver, and so we see this initiative as an excellent forum to close that gap and deliver more value to our customers and we remain excited and committed to Properly Secure Every Business Network. Clone Systems would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Open Source community for all their input so far, which has already been way beyond our expectation, and to invite them to continue to work on these and other upcoming projects as we progress. Your internet needs you! So let’s keep working together to create some really cool stuff,” says Clone Systems’ COO, Richard Daw.
