TriGeo Expands Into Nine New International Markets in 90 Days

Overseas SIEM Adoption Drives New Segment of Company Growth

POST FALLS, ID--(Marketwire - January 17, 2008) - TriGeo Network Security, the proactive network defense company, has added nine new international markets in the last 90 days -- setting the stage for significant overseas growth and global technology adoption in 2008. With new business partner agreements signed in Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Greece, Hong Kong, Germany, Portugal, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, TriGeo is the only security information and event management (SIEM) company that tailors its solution exclusively to international organizations with a few hundred to a few thousand employees.

"Hackers care about dollars and Euros, not borders -- forcing companies around the world to monitor network activity and protect their businesses from internal and external threats as they happen," said Michelle Dickman, president of TriGeo Network Security. "TriGeo helps organizations stay a step ahead of emerging threats -- regardless of their origin -- and enforce internal and regulatory IT policies with customizable responses."

TriGeo's Security Information Manager (SIM) is the only real-time SIEM appliance that automatically identifies, notifies and responds to network attacks, suspicious behavior and policy violations -- including unauthorized USB device use -- as they happen. The system comes stocked with hundreds of pre-built rules and reports for data and network protection, coupled with the ability to easily customize and create new rules on the fly. TriGeo SIM documents all machine, user and network activity, and enables proactive responses such as quarantining, blocking, routing and controlling services, processes, accounts and privileges.

A recent Ponemon study, "Data Security Policies Are Not Enforced," highlights the need for security policy enforcement:

--  More than half of all respondents said they had personally copied
    confidential company information onto a USB memory stick, despite the fact
    that 87 percent admitted that company policy forbids it.
--  57 percent believe others in their organization routinely use memory
    sticks to store and transport sensitive or confidential company data.
--  80 percent said they were unsure whether turning off network firewalls
    is a policy breach.

"TriGeo SIM seamlessly integrates with companies' network infrastructures to improve IT performance and combat the most difficult security concerns -- regardless of geography," said Susanne Kokkinos, the Director of Marketing for Xnet Communications GmbH, a TriGeo business partner based in Hamburg, Germany. "The TriGeo support team offers rapid solutions to our customers' challenges and helps get the system up and running in days, not months."
