Asce Networks' Omnirange Plus Firewall Proves Impenetrable in Independent Hacking Competition

25th Oct. 2001

MUNICH, Germany -- Oct. 24, 2001 - During the daily program "Live Hacking" at the IT-Security Forum of the Systems trade show, Asce Networks' high availability firewall, Omnirange Plus, was one of the few security solutions that remained completely unpenetrated, fully protecting its user's network from attack.

During the demonstration, Sebastian Schreiber, managing director of security detection company SySS, attempted to penetrate the networks of exhibitors in hall B1, an area nearly exclusively comprising vendors of IT security solutions and services. The result showed security leaks and features making it easy for hackers to penetrate the networks among the majority of the 100 attacked companies. A positive exception was Netstuff, which secured its systems with two firewalls, including Asce Networks' high availability firewall, Omnirange Plus. Omnirange Plus, incorporating answering scans among other technology, did not allow any of the attempted penetrations.

During the hacking demonstration, the majority of attacks were successful, as many companies were not secured at all and offered full hard disk access. "It looks as if the old saying about shoemakers wearing the worst shoes is valid here too," commented Schreiber after his show. He said this example proves that security companies preach one thing and often act differently.

Security thanks to Omnirange Plus
Asce Networks, however, backs up its corporate goal to Enable the Secure, Highly Available Enterprise (SM) by providing the latest technology to protect corporate information assets. During the hacking demonstration, Omnirange Plus blocked all penetration attempts and methods into the Netstuff network, including port scans, attacks with hacker tools available via the Internet, via standard operating system releases and scans with well known security scan engines. Asce Networks' Omnirange Plus is the first wholly integrated firewall to offer high availability and dynamic load balancing between various ISP connections. The first integration between operating system and firewall grants maximum security, high throughput and fail-over for in- and outbound network traffic. The Asce Networks firewall has been commercially available since June 2001.

SySS is located in Tübingen, Germany and works with companies to execute aimed penetrations at their networks to detect and remove possible security leaks. Netstuff AG is a pan-European retail and service company for network security and internet technologies, providing consulting, security assessments and selected security systems.
