WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - September 20, 2010) -  ArcSight Protect '10 -- Narus, Inc., the leader in real-time traffic intelligence for protecting governments, service providers and enterprises against cyber threats and doing business in cyber space, announced today that it has joined the ArcSight (NASDAQ: ARST) Common Event Format (CEF) program with the certification of its NarusInsight traffic intelligence system. Certified to work with the ArcSight Enterprise Threat and Risk Management (ETRM) platform, the Narus solution provides early detection of zero-day attacks, advanced persistent threats and other anomalous traffic, enabling greater visibility into alerts through a single interface. This new capability enables joint customers to manage their networks more efficiently and make faster and better decisions to protect their networks.

"Comprehensive event capture at all levels in the network is critical to enabling effective enterprise threat and risk management," said Jeff Scheel, senior vice president of Business Development at ArcSight. "The interoperability between ArcSight and Narus gives customers a more complete solution for detecting threats and protecting their IP networks in real time."

Narus provides real-time situational awareness for service providers' and governments' large-scale, distributed IP networks.

Customers who use both NarusInsight and the ArcSight ETRM platform will have the option of using a single interface, with ArcSight managing all alert activity, and the Narus portal providing advanced visibility into the attack preparation, propagation and result of the attack.

"Narus provides traffic intelligence in real time for cyber security and network monitoring," said Greg Oslan, CEO of Narus. "When integrated with ArcSight's market-leading ETRM platform, the combined solution enables our joint customers to detect traffic anomalies earlier, analyze these anomalies in detail, and respond to alerts about their networks more efficiently. Together, Narus and ArcSight enable our customers to see the changing behavior of their networks clearly and to take swift corrective actions against cyber attacks and other threats."
