Intergraph Strengthens Critical Infrastructure Protection Vulnerability Assessment Offering

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 23, 2007— Intergraph Corporation has strengthened its critical infrastructure protection (CIP) vulnerability assessment service to assist businesses and government sites in complying with current and emerging government standards for physical, cyber and electronic system security. The full security spectrum threat assessment offering also provides organizations with recommendations to improve operations and optimize the functionality of existing systems.

Intergraph's vulnerability assessment service helps organizations, with CIP needs including utilities, process plants, government installations, and financial institutions establish an internal security baseline for physical and IT assets. The assessment provides these organizations with a basic standard, enabling them to measure improvements, assess the impact of changes and/or possible degradations in their security posture.

"Intergraph has been performing Security Vulnerability Assessments for IT related data, assets and facilities for several years. We are expanding the scope of these assessments to address increasing concerns about the physical accessibility to critical infrastructure assets such as sensitive buildings, networked sensor-based security systems and remote electronic assets," stated by Russ Holder, vice president for Intergraph's Cyber Space Protection group. "Commercial business and Governments are increasingly reliant on their networks, computer systems, data bases, control systems, security systems and the critical infrastructure to host these systems. Vulnerability assessments targeted at these assets have become a key success factor in insuring that an organization's security objectives are being met."

According to Jim Burns, State of Alabama chief information officer, "In today's connected society, citizens and businesses expect and demand access to e-government services. The State of Alabama's Cyber Security Program addresses the challenges associated with protecting confidential information on state systems while providing these groups with the information they require. By offering this level of accessibility, periodic vulnerability assessments are a vital part of our Cyber Security program and Intergraph plays a key role in identifying vulnerabilities prior to exploitation."

"As commercial and government organizations reevaluate their security, safety, and financial obligations to customers, shareholders, employees, and citizens, the importance of a properly implemented security vulnerability assessment quickly comes to the forefront," said Jack Pellicci, senior vice president and general manager, Intergraph Federal, Security and Intelligence Solutions. "Intergraph's assessment of physical, cyber and electronic system security provides these organizations with comprehensive recommendations for reducing or eliminating key vulnerabilities and helps to ensure compliance with government standards and to optimize their security systems."
