CUPERTINO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 7, 2006 --ArcSight, Inc., a leader in Network and Security Information Management, today announced the results of the company's expansion to provide solutions that help security, network and IT operations better address today's complex enterprise networks. ArcSight now offers a family of software solutions and appliances that are optimized for specific departments and simultaneously deliver the benefits of collaboration across multiple organizations, corporate business initiatives and regulatory and auditing requirements.

"The past year has marked a shift in the Enterprise Security Management (ESM) market with the technology being used in a variety of new and advanced ways within and beyond security organizations," said Robert Shaw, chairman and CEO, ArcSight. "As the recognized leader in ESM, we have the customer base to guide us and enable us to continue driving the innovation of the market. This has led us to the delivery of our new log management and network solutions. Our mission is to bring network and IT operations the same benefits we are known for in security, along with the benefits of enabling collaboration across these teams."

ArcSight ESM leadership

ArcSight serves as the mission control center for security information management for global enterprises, government organizations and managed security service providers. More Fortune 1000 companies use ArcSight ESM than any other Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) product, according to the latest Information Security Study conducted by TheInfoPro (TIP), a leading independent research network covering the IT industry.

ArcSight ESM was selected by 124 customers in the past fiscal year. Example customers include: BMW, the Federal Aviation Administration, Genesis HealthCare, Lava Trading, Priority Health, Swisscom Mobile and United Overseas Bank Ltd.

"ArcSight was the only vendor we evaluated that was able to adapt to our multi-vendor environment without sacrificing security," said Wassil Kacha, Vice President and head of Information Security at Lava Trading. "The company's ESM solution enhances the efficiency of our log monitoring and regulatory reporting, while providing an advanced system to normalize heterogeneous security event information."

The United Overseas Bank Ltd. (UOB), a leading bank in Singapore with more than 500 offices across the globe, requires automated surveillance checks across various countries. Consistent and timely monitoring by ArcSight ESM ensures that appropriate investigations and responses can be performed more effectively. UOB chose ArcSight for its comprehensive functionality, ease of deployment and rich out-of-the box capabilities particularly in the area of correlating security information across disparate IT and security devices to identify threats while minimizing false alarms.

"Given the current reliance on technology as a core component of delivering business service, enterprise-wide IT surveillance is vital in safeguarding the UOB's IT assets, services, systems and customers' information," said Susan Hwee, Executive Vice President (Information Technology), UOB. "With ArcSight, the Group will be able to standardize its security surveillance and minimize any such exploited risks across the different countries, user communities and technical environments."

ArcSight released a family of network appliances that help network operations automate configuration and change management, security and compliance processes, and bridge the gap between network and security operations. Both groups can benefit from automating common processes that are typically performed by highly skilled engineers such as cross-vendor and cross-device expertise, in-depth and timely analysis of network configurations, and compliance requirements with security and network change management policies.

ArcSight network appliances were selected by a broad range of customers in the past year. Customers include: Boston Medical Center, Fortis Clearing Chicago and Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.
