Teston, Kent, UK (January 15th 2013) - Idappcom Ltd., a UK based provider of Traffic Replay Tools, pcaps and SNORT based security rules, have announced the creation of a new rule management tool - "Easy Rules Selector".
This new tool allows users of the Idappcom snort based security rules to view all the information relating to the security rule and the threat that it is intended to mitigate, including all external references (CVE etc), and to export the rules selectively for deployment on an appliance.
Manage the Idappcom security rules database
Idappcom Ltd. is the author of Traffic IQ Professional (tm), a traffic replay tool that allows security professionals to test the effectiveness of IP based filtering devices, and the creator of high quality Snort based security rules. The security rules are based on captures of "real world" attacks and are the result of many years of research. The Idappcom threat library contains over 5600 pcap files and the rules library has over 3500 security rules.
With this new tool users of Idappcom security rules can manage their use more effectively. The UI is very intuitive and makes the task of ananlysing historical and monthly updates simple and quick. The extensive information held in the database for each rule, and the build-in links to external reference sources, enables total accuracy in rule selection, which helps to avoid deploying rules that do not apply to specific environments. The tool allows information viewing by column selection, field parameters, Boolean logic etc. No other Snort rules viewer is as comprehensive as the helper application; "Easy Rules Selector".
A Truly Cost Effective Solution
The security rules, available through IPS Security Rules (an entity wholly owned by Idappcom Ltd.), are based on actual proven exploits where the original malicious traffic has been tested and captured. They are of a very high quality and available at a price point that cannot be matched through individual development. The depth of information available for each rule / threat and the links to external sources entails a significant amount of research that is cost prohibitive for most organisations / individuals.
Users can subscribe to a monthly supply of new rules on an annual subscription basis which also entitles them to access the current full library. Addiionally this allows them to obtain a free copy of the helper application, "Easy Rules Selector"
This makes the Idappcom security rules and the library viewer the most cost effective solution available in the market.
