Lumeta Corp. this week will announce its IPSonar 2.0 network intelligence gathering software, which can gather in detail the true scope of an enterprise IP network and identify potential security weaknesses that other monitoring products cant identify. The Somerset, N.J., company up to now had offered an auditing service that heavily leveraged the patent-pending IP mapping technology.
"We found a lot of organizations really only manage what they know about. Most customers dont know fully what all the resources are or whos on their networks," said David Arbeitel, senior vice president of strategic development at Lumeta in Somerset. "Over six years we learned that as technology evolves in an IP infrastructure, there is a strong need to understand what information is flowing on the perimeter of networks and understand the costs associated with managing the perimeter," he added.
