Lucid Security Prevents Unwanted Intruders
Protection of IP a Key Focus to Company Efforts

Lucid Security, creator of ipANGEL, which the company says is the world's only auto-tuning intrusion prevention solution with onboard asset/vulnerability scanning, announced its CTO Vik Phatak will team with Information Security expert Tom Bowers to deliver a presentation on Asset-Centric Security as part of the Perimeter Question track at the Computer Security Institute's (CSI) 15th annual NetSec conference, Monday, June 13, at the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale, AZ.

Phatak and Bowers will share real-world insights and perspectives on how to effectively blend existing and new technologies to integrate and protect intellectual property within the enterprise.

"Many enterprise security programs are missing the primary objective when building a secure infrastructure. Too often the focus is to secure desktops, routers, firewalls, servers and databases, rather the information contained in those devices," said Tom Bowers, an Information Security industry expert, technical editor for Information Security Magazine and head of Net4NZIX, an information security consultancy.

As opposed to Layered and Defense-in-Depth strategies, which work from the perimeter inward, asset-centric security sits on the information itself and builds outward. Phatak and Bowers cite the following examples of asset-centric security: anti-virus software, disk/folder/file encryption, digital rights management, desktop firewalls and access control devices.

Phatak and Bowers will compare and contrast these security technologies and strategies, share challenges in identifying information assets, and discuss the types of asset-centric security strategies and technologies being deployed.

"The notion of a secure perimeter has dissolved rapidly," said Lucid Security CTO Vik Phatak. "Taking an asset-centric approach enables organizations to protect critical information without modifying the way people do business. An asset-centric model is a more scalable and sustainable approach to security. We look forward to sharing this practice as a blueprint for effective security management."
