M86 Security Achieves Secured by RSA ® Certified Partner Status

Interoperability Enables Joint Customers to Include Real-Time Web Security Data and Logs to the RSA enVision Platform

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2011) - M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, today announced that it has joined the Secured by RSA® Certified Partner Program to establish interoperability between its M86 Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solution and the RSA enVision® Platform from RSA, the Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC). By achieving this interoperability certification, M86 Security has joined a technical partnership with RSA that will help increase Web security and consolidate SIEM management for joint customers of the companies.

Interoperability between the M86 Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and the RSA enVision® platform gives organizations a comprehensive view of their security, enabling them to include real-time Web security information and logs to their SIEM reports for additional threat protection, compliance and operational status.

"Companies are becoming more aware of their security and compliance management requirements due to the increasingly threatening combination of social media and malware infections," said Stu Vaeth, Director, Technology Alliances, RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "RSA's interoperability partnership with M86 Security provides an opportunity for RSA enVision customers to get in-depth visibility of the security and productivity incidents detected by the M86 Secure Web Gateway and help equip them with zero-day protection against Web-based cyber-attacks."

The M86 SWG provides the most accurate malware detection available, enabling safe, productive access to Web 2.0. Its multi-layered anti-malware engine uses intelligent, real-time technologies to prevent known, unknown, new and targeted attacks, while centralized reporting and policy controls further minimize data loss and compliance risks. Now, it also includes the capability to format syslog information, which allows the M86 SWG security information to be sent to RSA for centralized SIEM management. The M86 SWG is the only secure Web Gateway solution in the market that can provide organizations with real-time protection against zero-day malware attacks and pass this on-the-fly log information to the RSA SIEM platform.

According to Werner Thalmeier, Vice President of Product Management, M86 Security, "This interoperability partnership is important to M86 as it helps our customers to further maximize the value of their Web security investment. By working with RSA, we can enable organizations to consolidate all of their log data, including Web security information, in one centralized place for better visibility and a deeper understanding of security and compliance."

The M86 SWG is available through authorized M86 channel partners, and SIEM integration with the RSA enVision solution is a built-in feature of the M86 SWG at no additional cost. For more information, please visit: www.m86security.com
