AUSTIN, Texas -- TippingPoint Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: TPTI - News), the leader in intrusion prevention, today announced it has teamed up with Tenable Network Security, Inc., a leading developer of security management solutions, to reduce time and support costs associated with research and remediation. Through collaborative efforts, Tenable's Lightning Console now correlates events and blocked attack notifications from TippingPoint's UnityOne Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) for simplified and integrated security management.

Tenable's flagship product, the Lightning Console, has many powerful features which include extremely robust vulnerability scanning; reporting and scheduling; asset management; real time aggregation of IDS events and correlation with vulnerabilities; tracking the network security remediation process; strong separation of roles and security information; and organizational view of network security. By integrating with UnityOne, administrators can correlate blocked attacks with other network events, reducing research time and eliminating the need for remediation by stopping attacks before they occur.

"The number of alerts and notifications generated by other security products can instantaneously be reduced by installing an active intrusion prevention system," said TippingPoint's CTO Marc Willebeek-LeMair. "It gives security administrators more time to focus on the proactive aspects of their jobs, such as policy and compliance, as opposed to chasing false alarms and fighting attacks after they happen."

"IPS event correlation and information management has been in high-demand, and we are pleased to meet this frequent customer request through our relationship with TippingPoint, whose products are recognized as best-of- breed," said Ron Gula, President and CTO of Tenable Network Security. "For the first time, security and network administrators have a tool that clearly shows a path to return on investment by blocking attacks. Integrated management with intrusion prevention systems will cut down on the time and effort required to manage other security products."

The Lightning Console and Tenable's new Thunder 1.0 Log Aggregator will operate with TippingPoint's UnityOne Intrusion Prevention System this month. The Thunder log aggregator allows a Lightning Console user to extend their view of vulnerabilities and IDS events to seamlessly analyze log activity from their portion of the enterprise network.
