NitroSecurity Inducted Into New SC Magazine Innovators Hall of Fame

NitroView SIEM Honored for Real-time Security and Compliance Excellence

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management solutions (SIEM), today announced it has been inducted into the new SC Magazine Innovators Hall of Fame in the inaugural "Class of 2010." The honor is the culmination of four years of recognition for NitroSecurity as an Innovator by SC Magazine -- including three consecutive Innovator awards for its flagship SIEM solution NitroView Enterprise Security Manager (ESM).

In his introduction of the 2010 Class, Dr. Peter Stephenson, technology editor for SC Magazine, lauded NitroSecurity and NitroView for preserving and advancing the core innovations on which NitroView is built, particularly, the "fastest database in the business." Dr. Stephenson said: "In a very crowded world of giants, NitroSecurity stands out from the crowd," and "If you want to talk about innovation, start with an amazingly innovative approach to databases for very high-speed packet capture and analysis, add a bit of storage efficiency for that data, and you have the backend for a truly creative front end. What more could you ask for in a SIEM?"

Dr. Stephenson's comments, and NitroSecurity's innovations, reflect the critical need for real-time security analysis, especially in a year that has seen game-changing cyberattacks such as Aurora and Stuxnet. These attacks are the first of a new generation of threats that evade layers of security devices and exploit multiple vulnerabilities in systems and software. As such, the need for actionable and comprehensive intelligence from the network all the way up to applications is more critical than ever.

According to SC Magazine, the inaugural group of five named to the Innovators Hall of Fame are perennial winners of just about every accolade SC Magazine can present, with multiple 5-star ratings, and "truly, these five companies are, by any measurement, best of breed." 

"As Dr. Stephenson noted, NitroSecurity is deeply committed to both technical excellence and the voice and needs of our customers," said Ken Levine, CEO of NitroSecurity. "We understand the real-world challenges that security analysts face every day and have been a vanguard in redefining SIEM from after-the-fact reporting to a real-time security tools. We are honored to be in the inaugural class of the Innovators Hall of Fame."
