Largo, Florida (PRWEB) March 19, 2005 -- CyberShield Networks, Inc.™ and Software Plus, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, the largest corporate reseller of computer software, software licensing, and accessories in the Midwest specializing in value-added services, announced today they have signed a Value Added Reseller (VAR) Agreement, enabling Software Plus to resell and enhance its security product offering with CyberShield Networks™ Intrusion Prevention and Deception Management (IPDM™) security technology. Software Plus will combine its extensive experience in providing software solutions, with CyberShield Networks IPDM™ network security solution, offering customers a solution to protect their critical network infrastructures from constant security breaches, malicious code attacks, and internal threats.

Because vulnerabilities exist in today’s security infrastructure, and these attacks are becoming more complex, Software Plus is arming its customers with IPDM™. IPDM™ is a threat and risk management solution that protects a network from both known and unknown attacks, eliminates false positives with 100% accuracy, provides a complete holistic view and protection of a network’s entire IP space (used and unused), and provides the lowest overall TCO.

“Of all the security technologies we have reviewed, CyberSheild was the most complete and easy to use. With this partnership we now have the ability to bring a leading edge security solution to our customers”, said Patty Malashock, CEO of Software Plus.

CyberShield Networks IPDM™ offers the industry’s only proactive security environment to isolate and redirect both known and unknown attacks, before they occur. This breakthrough technology delivers a unique paradigm, with features including real-time intrusion identification and impact assessment, intrusion direction and relevance, intrusion incident management and tracking of suspicious activities – all before an attack reaches the perimeter defenses or, more importantly, critical assets.

IPDM™ is designed specifically to help users overcome the difficulty of accurately identifying attacks and assessing their impact. The end result is that organizations can realize a substantial cost savings through reduced operating expenses and, more importantly, avoid costly network breaches by proactively blocking attacks.

“Software Plus has years of proven experience in successfully providing large customers with integrated software solutions that significantly reduce their clients’ total cost of ownership,” said Charles Strasburger, President and CEO of CyberShield Networks™. "By partnering with CyberShield Networks and deploying IPDM™, Software Plus is able to ensure its customers have the security solutions they need to safeguard their critical infrastructure.”
