PacketMotion Partners With immixGroup to Bring User Activity Management Solutions to Federal Government Agencies

Partnership Allows immixGroup to Provide IT Security Solutions That Enable Government Agencies to Monitor and Audit User Activities and Behaviors, Enforce Regulatory Compliance, and Improve Operational Efficiency Through Its GSA and SEWP Contract and Rating

SAN JOSE, CA, and MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2010) -  PacketMotion, the pioneer in User Activity Management (UAM), today announced its strategic partnership with immixGroup, Inc., a public-sector business leader offering technology sales, channel development, government contract management, and IT services. The partnership will allow immixGroup to provide government agencies with PacketMotion's solutions, which reduce risk by providing complete control and visibility over users and information assets while improving efficiency by reducing the complexity associated with internal audits and regulatory compliance.

The partnership supports PacketMotion's commitment to provide the public sector with solutions that monitor user activity and behaviors within networks that provide access to sensitive information. The PacketMotion solution is available from immixGroup through various contract vehicles, including the General Service Administration (GSA) IT Schedule 70 and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Scientific and Engineering Workstation Procurement (SEWP) IV.

"We are very excited about partnering with PacketMotion and supporting their strategy to increase their visibility and growth in the government sector," said David Stewart, vice president, Technology Sales Division at immixGroup, Inc. "The combination of immixGroup's extensive public-sector technology sales experience and PacketMotion's leading User Activity Management solutions provides government organizations with resources needed to improve operational efficiency, reduce risk and align their security initiatives with security policies and objectives."

The PacketMotion UAM solution provides public-sector information-security organizations with comprehensive visibility and control over users and assets through the most cost-effective and efficient method available. IT security teams can deploy PacketMotion solutions in less than a day and immediately start providing audit reports, user-correlated forensics data, policy alerting, and enforcement. With PacketMotion, monitoring and controlling high-risk users such as VPN and wireless users, IT administrators, contractors, employees, and agency officials are just a few mouse-clicks away. PacketMotion's solution provides granular auditing and real-time controls for Windows and NFS file shares; most databases, including Oracle, DB2 and MS SQL; mainframe and AS/400 access; and much more. The solution also supports numerous IT administrator controls, including the ability to correlate the use of shared administrator accounts with the identities of the actual IT employees that use them.

"The increase in external cyberattacks perpetrated by foreign-government-backed cyberspies, and the headlines publicizing the attacks, have distracted attention from IT security initiatives designed to protect systems against the most common and pervasive threats -- threats that come from the inside," said Paul Smith, PacketMotion president and CEO. "The respected position immixGroup holds within the public sector, combined with our strategic partnership, will provide government agencies with access to a cost-effective solution that will enable them to regain control over the security of critical data assets from both internal and external threats."
