First U.S. Cancer Center Adds Trio of NitroSecurity Tools

Roswell Park Cancer Institute Selects NitroView for SIEM, Log Management and Database Monitoring

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -  NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management solutions (SIEM), today announced that Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) has selected the company's integrated NitroView SIEM, log management and database monitoring solutions.

Founded in 1898, RPCI is the nation's first cancer center, and the only upstate New York facility to hold the National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation of "comprehensive cancer center." Accommodating approximately 200,000 outpatient visits annually, RPCI is a member of the prestigious National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). Its computing infrastructure comprises approximately 300 servers, 5,000 PCs and a host of tablets and smartphones.

For any healthcare organization, the security of personal health information (PHI) is of the highest priority. IT leadership at RPCI found that despite the Institute's comprehensive infrastructure, security event and log information was not as rapidly discoverable and actionable as they desired -- that data was often spread across disparate and disconnected systems. To remedy this, RPCI conducted an extensive search for a SIEM solution that would address those issues. The goal was to achieve greater visibility into and across data silos to more effectively and efficiently identify potential risks to PHI security.

"RPCI is a leader in cancer research, and leveraging innovative technology helps us achieve our mission: to understand, prevent and cure cancer," said Edward Pardo, Senior IT Security Engineer at RPCI.

"e-Healthcare initiatives like electronic health records (EHR) and the relentlessly evolving cyberthreat landscape are accelerating the growth of both data and risk," said Ken Levine, CEO of NitroSecurity. "Just as in the diagnosis of a patient, the ability to act rapidly based on comprehensive information is critical. That's why marquee healthcare organizations around the country like RPCI have looked to partner with NitroSecurity more than any other SIEM vendor. We provide them with the greatest ability to secure their network environment and meet the letter of the law, without being distracted from their primary mission of saving lives."
