Summary:  By embedding advanced Network Intelligence technology from Qosmos into its line of Security Gateway products, Clavister gains a deeper level of application visibility, managing threats up to the application level and mitigating security risks for cloud, telecom and enterprise customers.

Paris, France, 14 February 2013 – Qosmos today announced that Clavister has embedded Qosmos’ ixEngine within Clavister’s line of Security Gateway products to provide in-depth application visibility into network traffic flows. All Clavister customers using this new Application Control functionality now benefit from stronger control and monitoring of security threats in their networks.

The Clavister solution provides an effective way to block or control unauthorized or misbehaving applications. This centrally managed service-based solution recognizes over 1,100 applications and network protocols, and extracts more than 6,000 metadata tags associated with applications and protocols.

Qosmos ixEngine® identifies and extracts information traveling over networks in real time, providing a true picture of the traffic by identifying protocols, types of application, and extracting additional information in the form of metadata. Embedded Qosmos network intelligence software identifies queries and extracts specific data, allowing Clavister solutions to block, filter and mitigate security threats before they affect enterprise assets.

“Today’s cloud and enterprise infrastructures need to be protected against increasingly complex threats, right up to the application level”, said John Vestberg, CEO of Clavister. “By leveraging Qosmos technology in our products, we are able to decode application traffic in real-time and deliver unprecedented levels of security. The partnership with Qosmos also means that we can focus all our resources on enriching our security portfolio, while relying on Qosmos for network intelligence technology and continuous updates of protocol signatures and metadata.”

“Innovative companies like Clavister recognize that the complexity and speed of change in network protocols and applications requires dedicated expertise,” said Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO at Qosmos. “I am delighted that Qosmos can add value for Clavister by being a true partner for network intelligence technology”.
