HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Arxceo® Corporation, a provider of anti-reconnaissance and anomaly-based attack prevention technology, today announced that it has completed the integration of its patented technologies, Plug and Protect (PnPRO™) and Tag-UR-IT™ into Japan Communications Inc.’s (JCI) award-winning B-Mobile PHS product to create a new, endpoint security solution for Windows XP, called Personal IPS. Personal IPS is a host-based Intrusion Prevention System providing secure data communications services to both consumer and corporate customers in Japan.

This marks the first joint product release since JCI acquired a majority ownership in Arxceo in February, 2006. JCI is recognized as the market-leading Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) in Japan. Demonstrating its commitment to providing secure mobile communications, JCI has created Arxceo Japan, a wholly-owned subsidiary. Arxceo Japan will sell Personal IPS along with Arxceo’s line of security appliances.

The Personal IPS solution leverages Arxceo’s tiny but effective, patented security engine which is embedded in the product to ensure maximum network protection. Through this unique technology, Personal IPS can provide scan blocking and protect against illegal access, network worms and address spoofing to secure a company’s mobile workforce. In September, Arxceo was awarded a crucial U.S. patent covering its PnPRO and Tag-UR-IT technologies for improving network security. Arxceo’s technology for network attack protection uses a ‘signature-less’ anti-reconnaissance-based approach with anomaly and behavioral traffic analysis engines continually monitoring for zero-day attacks.

“We are thrilled to see our technology successfully embedded into Personal IPS. This product is critical for the needs of both consumers and companies alike who want secure broadband access,” said Don Davidson, Arxceo CEO. “This further confirms that our unique anti-reconnaissance design and extremely efficient traffic analysis offers the best anomaly-based security option for networks, wireless access points and now our first end-point PC-based implementation.”
