KEYW and Sensage Join Forces to Create Mission-Grade Cyber Intelligence Service

HANOVER, MD--(Marketwire - Feb 27, 2012) - KEYW and Sensage, two leaders in security intelligence, today announced a strategic technology alliance to deliver "mission-grade" cyber intelligence services to commercial enterprises and government agencies intent on understanding and minimizing cyber risks. At the core of this service are cyber analytics derived from the fusion of operational, security, and behavioral information about the cyber domain.

The KEYW-Sensage alliance will combine the extensive cyber analytics and security operations expertise of KEYW with the advanced event data warehousing and security intelligence solutions offered by Sensage. KEYW's new Cyber Intelligence Service will offer a platform of tools, capabilities, and offerings developed for the national defense and intelligence community to deliver cyber awareness and operational surety. This service is designed for organizations anxious to leverage advanced cyber analytics to improve the effectiveness and trustworthiness of their cyber domain operations. It incorporates proven elements of cyber analytics assessment, planning, product implementation and operational support.

The Sensage Event Data Warehouse and Security Analytics Library serve as the enabling technologies for the KEYW Cyber Intelligence Service. Sensage has over ten years of proven success collecting, storing and analyzing vast quantities of events produced by complex, distributed IT landscapes in the largest government agencies and enterprises.

Purpose-built for the task, the Sensage patented columnar database makes it possible for security practitioners to access any event in any context, from a real-time correlation alert to a simple compliance report to a statistical filtering and trend analysis algorithm. Because the database is open to any third-party tool via ODBC/JDBC, security auditors, investigators and analysts are able to customize their security analytics within the context of their roles and their interdependent workflows, which in turn accelerates visibility, improves decision making and leads to a better understanding of how to improve security configurations, policies and practices.

"The challenges that all enterprises face today in cyberspace are daunting" noted Leonard Moodispaw, CEO and President of KEYW Corporation. "KEYW's team became leaders in developing and deploying solutions to global cyber threats for the defense and intelligence community years before 'cyber' became the banal business buzzword of choice. These threats are growing and evolving rapidly. Their omnipresence in civilian, government and critical infrastructure environments today pose a grave threat to our national security. We are launching our Cyber Intelligence Service to begin bringing best-of-breed capabilities to a broader community of enterprises whose cyber vulnerability is now imperiling our Nation's security."

KEYW is a leader in developing and operating cyber analytics for the most advanced defense and intelligence agencies. "In Sensage, we've found a technology partner that will enable us to expand and replicate these analytics in more mainstream markets," said Ed Jaehne, Chief Strategy Officer of KEYW.

"Given their deep experience delivering cyber-security services to the defense and intelligence communities, KEYW is an ideal partner for our Security Intelligence Service," said Joe Gottlieb, President and CEO of Sensage, Inc. "Our combined efforts have already expanded and diversified the Sensage Security Analytics Library, and this will accelerate as other Sensage partners and customers join the initiative. KEYW has also become a certified Sensage solution provider and is helping us to fulfill increased customer demand for custom security dashboards and associated services."

The KEYW Cyber Intelligence Service is available immediately and will be on display at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, February 27 through March 2 in the Sensage Booth #2047.
