Intrusion Inc. Introduces New Internet Traffic Monitor to Small FSI Market
RICHARDSON, Texas - For $7,995, a credit union can quickly deploy a new piece of high-tech hardware its producer maintains will help it both protect private data and comply with government regulations. Richardson-based Intrusion Inc. said its new Compliance Commander regulated-information monitor (RIM) is specifically designed for smaller credit unions and other financial institutions. The device is placed at the Internet access or some other user-defined point and then passively monitors, detects, blocks and reports all violations that occur in emails, attachments, instant messages, file transfers and other traffic, said the Nasdaq-traded company (INTZ) whose current network security clients include the Army's Fort Hood. As for its entry into the credit union market, a number of confidential field trials and evaluations of the new RIM are under way, a company spokesperson said. "Now, smaller credit unions, banks and other financial institutions can afford a highly accurate, real-time data privacy protection system for their networks," according to Ben Bittle, director of product management at Intrusion.
