Plus: Teros unwraps updated application firewall.

Neoteris last week improved its software access-management controls and released a host of new features to secure content accessed via a browser.

With Version 3.3 of its Instant Virtual Extranet platform, Neoteris has added single sign-on capabilities, integration with password management software and tools to check processes running on remote devices. IVE 3.3 software will be included in the Neoteris Access Series and Meeting Series products.

 The new Host Checker Agent 2.0 looks for software compliance and monitors the executable processes running on a target machine to ensure it is not malicious. The agent can shut down a session if it detects something out of the ordinary. Neoteris also has added a Cache Cleaner Agent, which cleans out temporary files and cookies stored on a browser.

Also new is In-Transit Data Protection, which allows non-cacheable Hypertext Markup Language rendering to ensure data is not left behind on the client software. The company has added native single sign-on technology to IVE, including form- and header-based exchange of user name, credentials and other attributes.

The Access Series, which includes IVE 3.3, starts at $10,000. The Meeting Series upgrade to the software costs $2,000.

Application-security appliance vendor Teros has announced Version 3.0 of its application firewall, adding protection against cross-site scripting attacks that let hackers steal computer users’ desktop cookies. The software features new defenses against denial-of-service attacks and a “cloaking” mechanism to camouflage information about corporate domain naming.

Teros 3.0 is available for $25,000.
