CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (Jan. 28, 2013) – Rockwell Collins has launched the newest version of its MaxView® Enhanced Security, the first commercially available monitor and control software with enhanced security attributes designed to meet stringent standards for operations on both government and commercial networks.
“Network security concerns are increasing in government and commercial environments. Customers cannot risk vulnerabilities and compromises affecting network availability, electronic communications and business transactions. It is our priority and commitment to customers to provide software with the highest security standards to manage both commercial and military networks,” said Bob Haag, vice president and general manager of Communication and Navigation Products for Rockwell Collins.
MaxView is a powerful and versatile software suite. Its modular framework and intuitive user interface enable users to manage local and remote networks, automate complex service tasks and unify management of disparate systems into one view. By managing networks in one view and eliminating the need for separate proprietary network management systems, MaxView minimizes operational complexity, training and support costs and helps customers identify and solve problems before they impact business.
For government network environments, the launch of the latest release of MaxView Enhanced Security provides additional security attributes complying with stringent Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs). These STIGs ensure secure configurations including operating systems, network devices such as routers and firewalls, and both enterprise and desktop applications. The STIGs are mandatory for many federal agencies and military branches.
For commercial network environments, customers will also benefit from the additional security attributes in the latest release of MaxView. These attributes result in reduced risk of security vulnerabilities, preserving high levels of network and communications availability and data integrity. Commercial applications include satellite service providers, broadcasters and media providers.
Installed and supported on more than 600 systems in 40 countries on all seven continents, MaxView enables local and remote network management. As a vendor-agnostic product, network management across all types of hardware and technologies is readily available.
