IT Week Honors TriGeo Security Information Manager With an "Editor's Choice Award"

TriGeo SIM Earns a 5-Star Rating for Value and Performance

POST FALLS, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- IT Week Magazine, a Possibility Media publication, has awarded TriGeo Network Security's Security Information Manager (SIM) solution with a 2006 Editor's Choice Award and a five-star rating in a product review published this month. TriGeo Network Security is a leading provider of security information management (SIM) solutions. The award from IT Week is the company's fourth major award this year.

Designed to help mid-market enterprises effectively monitor and manage activity inside the organization's network, the TriGeo SIM provides reporting and analysis that supports the IT security, audit and compliance functions. TriGeo provides real-time security incident analysis and response and is well-suited for IT security organizations that require rapid responses to internal and external security breaches and threats.

"All IT organizations need to get a handle on what's going on inside the network and TriGeo's SIM solution does that in a graphical and easy to use manner that makes it easy to see the activity being generated by all the devices connected to your network," said Ken Durham, editor-in-chief, Security Week. "Every organization has compliance requirements and TriGeo shatters myths that SIM products are only for exceptionally large enterprises because they are so costly. This is a cost-effective product that will pay for itself with the first internal threat it resolves. It is a critical tool for any company involved in a security audit."

"We are very pleased with the positive product review and the award from IT Week," said Michelle Dickman, president and CEO, TriGeo Network Security. "The review gives our customers and prospects a good idea of the security problem our SIM solution solves. We believe this product represents the industry's best Security Information Management solution for mid-market customers and we're pleased that the editors of IT Week seem to agree with us."

TriGeo's automated-response capabilities, its active defense of an organization's network via multiple and targeted correlation rules, behavior analysis and network infrastructure integration are all highlighted in the review.

The TriGeo SIM works effectively with hundreds of popular networking hardware and software products, including anti-virus, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, multi-protocol routers, switches, as well as operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Unix, OS400, AIX and Novell.
