Kratos Introduces New Release of Its Enterprise Network Management Product
NeuralStar With Anomaly Analysis and Event Pattern Recognition Capabilities

Provides Real-Time Intelligence for Ensuring Optimal Performance, Increased
Availability, Enhanced Cybersecurity Protection and Informed Decision-Making

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Networks, Inc. announced
the new release of its flagship network management and situational awareness
product, NeuralStar^®, that adds anomaly analysis and event pattern
recognition capabilities. The new release also provides real-time intelligence
for ensuring optimal performance, increased availability, enhanced
cybersecurity protection and informed decision-making.

Kratos Networks

NeuralStar is used by some of the most robust and security-conscious
enterprise-grade military and commercial networks in the world. NeuralStar
monitors events that may impact network availability, performance, security,
or quality of service, providing network operators with a single situational
awareness dashboard. By collecting performance data from all network hardware,
applications, management and security systems, operators can identify health
and status issues, make adjustments to maintain network throughput, and
minimize anomalies such as congestion and latency.

"With new security threats, constant change, and accelerated network growth,
it is vital to have clear insight into the behavior of IT infrastructure to
effectively manage, operate and secure today's enterprise networks," said
Michael Smith, Senior Vice President of Enterprise Technology at Kratos
Networks. "The new release of NeuralStar helps operators detect network
anomalies and recognize event patterns more quickly to simplify and automate
the process of pro-actively managing end-to-end performance across the

Unlike the time-consuming manual threshold approach used by many enterprises
today, NeuralStar enables network operators to rapidly isolate and
troubleshoot performance bottlenecks and suspicious activity on the network.
Using a wizard-driven interface, network managers can automatically create
dynamic activity-baselines across the IT infrastructure. Dynamic thresholds
can also be set above and below baseline values so that alerts are received if
network traffic levels spike or drop dramatically, so performance and security
issues can be rapidly detected and resolved before any impact occurs.

With the new release, enterprise management capabilities have been enhanced to
enable operators to quickly adapt to security threats and performance issues
across distributed sites. NeuralStar enables the centralized management of
user authentication, rules, and device groupings across regional and local
sites. In addition, dynamic monitoring of remote sites reduces the number of
false alarms and accelerates the remediation process.
