SOMERSET, N.J., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ — Lumeta, the leading provider of Network Assurance solutions for enterprises and government agencies, today announced the immediate availability of the latest version of its flagship solution: IPsonar(R) 4.0. The solution allows organizations to balance network change with risk management and compliance imperatives, enabling them to obtain complete visibility into network connectivity and behavior.

With this release, Lumeta has made IPsonar easier to use, allowing IT personnel to quickly discover critical network information, including all assets, both managed and unmanaged. In addition, the increased ability to scale across large enterprises helps managers and administrators instantly understand their network environment, thereby extending the value of Network Assurance data across the risk and IT management lifecycles.

Key enhancements in IPsonar 4.0 include: — Integrated Lumeta Network Index (LNI) – Creates an executive scorecard quantifying network risk. LNI enables the measurement of scores over time to determine if the level of network security risk is increasing or decreasing, as well as the most significant contributing factors; — New Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) – Enables dramatically increased scalability and flexibility; — Improved ease-of-use to build and reuse queries and improved IPsonar MapViewer interface; and — Open API – Enables simple integration with risk management and IT management lifecycle solutions. Users can now leverage IPsonar's unique discovery capabilities in the context of existing risk management and network management investments, allowing them to drive more value by focusing tools on areas of greatest risk to the business.

IPsonar 4.0 enables large organizations to quickly create a visual representation of all assets on the network, in addition to mapping the connectivity between those assets. A new SOA Reporting Platform offers greater flexibility, scalability, and performance. New database-driven reporting available with both the IPsonar 4.0 and Lumeta's MapViewer increases usability and functionality, and an improved high-end report server provides greater detail and insight into the network infrastructure and potential issues. MapViewer empowers users to connect directly to IPsonar reports, allowing the use of powerful visual analytics to examine multiple reports simultaneously. At the same time, IPsonar can easily integrate with existing applications, allowing organizations to quickly and accurately map all devices and data flow on the network and leverage that knowledge in the context of industry standard analytic and configuration management tools.

Organizations must understand their network inventory and have a comprehensive view of connectivity in order to manage compliance, governance, security, and cost management initiatives. Now, this understanding can be easily achieved by using IPsonar 4.0 to create a baseline of network assets and risk. This baseline can be used as a starting point for these initiatives, while later scans can be compared to the prior baseline for continued improvement. It is also vital for managing relationships with outsourcers who are increasingly providing assistance to federal and commercial organizations. IPsonar enables organizations to establish and manage the outsourcing relationship by empowering them with a detailed understanding of available assets, helping them manage the ongoing relationship.

"IPsonar 4.0's LNI creates an executive scorecard that quantifies network risk: The higher the score, the greater the risk to availability, security, and compliance. With this scorecard, organizations instantly receive information to help reduce the risk lifecycle and handle new risks as they arise," said Michael Markulec, executive vice president, technology and operations, Lumeta. "Additionally, with IPsonar engineered as an SOA solution with open APIs, we can deliver tremendous value and enhance other network security solutions as well."

This scorecard can be used as a stand-alone metric or as an integrated part of IPsonar. Additionally, IPsonar 4.0 now integrates closely with asset management and security information management solutions, enabling organizations to leverage their previous investments while discovering information that can help make existing network investments even more efficient. Through public APIs, users can quickly export data about connectivity and possible security or compliance issues and handle them proactively, before they become major blown problems.

Lumeta IPsonar 4.0 is available immediately, with pricing beginning at $75,000. Pricing is dependent on the size of the network and number of connections under management.
