NitroSecurity Fuels Momentum With New Funding and Technology Acquisition

$6 Million in Growth Capital Funds Global Market Expansion and Acquisition of LogMatrix Security Business

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - October 8, 2010) -  NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management solutions (SIEM), today announced that the company has secured $6 million in Series B funding and expanded its customer and technology portfolio through the acquisition of the security business of LogMatrix.

The round was co-led by existing investors Brookline Venture Partners, First Analysis and NewSpring Ventures. The investment will be used to expand NitroSecurity's domestic and international market presence, evolve the award-winning NitroView SIEM product family, fund future acquisitions, and integrate LogMatrix's sophisticated risk-based assessment and correlation technologies.

New risk-based technologies help security analysts monitor and analyze cyberactivity on IT infrastructure based on relative activity and potential impact. Adding risk-based capabilities to current rule-based solutions, which look for specific, pre-defined threats and actions, will give analysts more effective tools to efficiently defend their data.

Customers using LogMatrix technology include AT&T and the City of Seattle. The City of Seattle, in partnership with the University of Washington and the University of Michigan, is utilizing LogMatrix technology to address the logical security of shared critical infrastructure in the Puget Sound metropolitan region.

Domestically, NitroSecurity is increasing its investments in the high-growth federal, healthcare and critical infrastructure markets, where the company's unmatched technical certifications and strategic partnerships are driving increased market penetration. Internationally, NitroSecurity is expanding its presence in the fast-growing EMEA, Asia Pacific and Latin American security markets.

"Due to relentless cyberthreats and increasing regulation, demand for our solutions has never been stronger -- and it's growing rapidly," said Ken Levine, president and CEO of NitroSecurity. "NitroSecurity is dedicated to delivering a technology platform that is second-to-none in addressing the real-time security and compliance challenges within the most demanding network environments. This funding and technology acquisition help ensure that we continue to anticipate the needs of our customers and aggressively grow revenues in new markets and geographies."

Today's news underscores tremendous momentum for NitroSecurity and its game-changing NitroView product portfolio. Highlights include:
