1 Solidcore Harness the Power of Change John Sebes CTO Solidcore Systems, Inc. Case Study:

2 Slide 2 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential What Solidcore Does  Situation  Operations and Security are at a cross roads  Business Drivers  Frequent change is affecting IT service levels – including unknown and possibly malicious change  Compliance initiatives stress IT/business linkage  Key Insight  Change drives complexity & cost!  Frequency of changes  Changes outside process  Multi-org. change coordination  The Solidcore Value  Provides complete and proactive control of change in the production environment  Works at the device-level and ties infrastructure change to IT processes and policies  Augments existing configuration management and IT workflow systems

3 Slide 3 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential Customer: PACE  Profile: Pace Suburban Bus Service  Pace Suburban Bus Service - 14th largest bus service in the U.S. - 1,500 employees buses  Pace provides bus and van service for six Chicago- area counties  MIS department has a centralized data center with limited support staff - performs large amounts of data analysis - responsible for software requests and communications - datacenter system maintenance

4 Slide 4 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential Customer: PACE  The Problem  Servers needed patching every other day to try to stay one step ahead of all the security threats  Need to provide 24x7 service availability - aren’t staffed for 24x7  Patching alone was stressing ability to maintain SLAs

5 Slide 5 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential What are Pace’s Technical Requirements?  Low on-going operational costs  Scale deployments at fixed and predictable cost  No policies or rules to setup  No policies to update on an ongoing basis  Reduce security related patch cycles  Low performance overhead  Minimize security risk  Protection from malicious code execution  Zero Day attacks, mass attacks worms, viruses, Trojans, etc  Prevent internal threat  Control what can be installed and run on remote systems.

6 Slide 6 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential Why is Securing Pace’s Environment so Hard?  Operational Effectiveness  Current security products are operationally intensive, making scaling to large deployments expensive  Performance overhead can be significantly high  Operationally intensive “Patching” is becoming the solution of choice  Risk Minimization  Understanding prevalent level of risk for current investment  Implemented policies do not keep pace with IT growth or Zero-day attacks, especially for remote/distributed systems  Level of protection erodes over time.  Internal threat is not accounted for

7 Slide 7 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential Protecting Pace: What’s being Optimized? Deployment Scope with fixed ops cost (customization, tweaking, maintenance etc) per machine EvalPilotDepartment Enterprise Degree of Prevention/Detection AV HIPS

8 Slide 8 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential Introducing S3 Security ™ S3 | security Solidcore  Deploy & Forget Security  No requirements for initial or on-going configuration, rules, signatures or learning  Minimal Performance Overhead  Installs easily with minimal system overhead  Unauthorized Code Cannot Run  Categorical protection from external threats including zero day attacks, mass attacks worms, viruses, and Trojans regardless of vector of attack  Internal Threat Protection  Maintains administrative flexibility while protecting authorized software configuration Operations-centric security based on change control

10 Slide 10 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential Solidcore’s Innovation: Solidification ™ Solidified Production Mode Control Assured 2 Initial Solidification Initial System Inventory Created 1 Solidified Production Update Mode Updated System Inventory 3 Updated Solidified Production Mode Control Assured 4 Enable Update Mode Disable Update Mode Identify Disk Image Current, Gold or Audited Image 0 Deployment State Production State

11 Slide 11 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential S3 Security is Practical Solidification ™ “Deploy and Forget Protection” No initial and on-going configuration No false positives or negatives Practically no performance overhead Very small footprint

12 Slide 12 Solidcore Proprietary and Confidential Customer: PACE  The Solidcore Value  "Solidcore is a godsend.” Bob Lescaleet, MIS department manager at Pace Suburban Bus Service  With Solidcore, if patching is needed, it can be done on Pace’s schedule.  Solidcore’s installation was a breeze and, once running, is transparent to operators.
