Lisle, Illinois based Athena Security has quite the showing at the 2008 RSA conference last week. In fact, Network World’s Richard Stiennon had this to say about Athena after seeing them at the show:

I met them off-campus. They did not even have a booth. But their product rocks. It is a security mapping tool that can be used to assess overall network threat exposure. It grabs configurations from security devices and figures out just what resources are exposed to network entry points. The best thing about their product is that it compares your current network architecture to various best practices (NIST and the like) and gives you a score. It then allows you to model proposed changes (moving a server, adding a rule) and see how it impacts your score. AthenaVerify is a great tool to help the enterprise evolve to a more secure posture.

Very nice guys! All of us here in Illinois are proud of you. Keep up the good work.
