Citadel Chooses AccelOps to Power Cloud-Based Managed Security Services

Citadel Data Security Services Offers Network Operations and SIEM as a Service Built on AccelOps' Integrated SIEM, Performance and Availability Monitoring Platform

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2013) - AccelOps, Inc., the leader in integrated Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), performance and availability monitoring software for on-premise and cloud-based data centers, has been chosen by Citadel Data Security Services to provide security and infrastructure monitoring. Citadel relies on AccelOps to provide continuous monitoring and alerting for security and network operations, as well as customized compliance reporting.

Citadel is a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) based in the United Kingdom. By providing services that are subscription-based, Citadel delivers businesses and organizations greater flexibility in adopting security best practices and meeting compliance requirements for regulations such as Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and Good Practice Guide 13 (GPG13). Citadel provides a cost-effective alternative to deploying and managing SIEM in-house and monitoring operations round the clock. Smaller businesses, departments and government agencies can subscribe to Citadel's services and reduce both capital and operating expenditures.

"Every Citadel customer needs all of the functionality, availability and service levels of a larger firm," said Neil Morgan, CEO of Citadel Data Security Services. "We found that other SIEM vendors' products could not scale adequately and did not provide the flexibility and agility we need to deliver on our vision of SIEM as a utility. AccelOps has built a leading-edge integrated platform that is ideal for managed services and is refreshingly easy to deploy and manage. Equally important, AccelOps is committed to its Managed Service Providers, and their product reflects that focus with its native multi-tenancy, high-performance scalability and flexible license structure."

AccelOps delivers the industry's only integrated software platform to monitor security, performance and availability across all aspects of the IT infrastructure, whether on-premise or in the cloud. Based on patented distributed real-time analytics technology, AccelOps automatically analyzes and makes sense of behavior patterns spanning server, storage, network, security, users and applications to rapidly detect and resolve problems. Single-click customer on-boarding, virtual appliance deployment and automated discovery capabilities enable Managed Service Providers to eliminate capital expenditures, deliver operational cost-efficiencies and rapidly generate new service revenues.

"We are delighted that Citadel has chosen AccelOps as the platform on which to build its SIEMaaS and network operations services," said Flint Brenton, President and CEO of AccelOps. "The team at Citadel really knows what they want, and we are very impressed with their expertise and rigorous evaluation process. This promises to be a strong business relationship for Citadel and AccelOps, given our shared commitment to innovation, value and customer service."
