NitroSecurity Positioned in the "Visionaries" Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management solutions (SIEM), today announced that it has been positioned in the "Visionaries" quadrant of Gartner Inc.'s "Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management."(1)

Built on top of the world's fastest data collection, management and analytics engine, NitroSecurity's NitroView product family provides "single pane of glass" visibility into events and logs and in-depth monitoring of networks, databases and application payload information. NitroView identifies, correlates and remediates threats in minutes instead of hours, automating regulatory compliance processes and delivering real-time threat detection and incident response.

According to Gartner, "Application layer monitoring for fraud detection or internal threat management continues to evolve as a use case for SIEM technology. Moreover, we see demand for application layer monitoring in the energy vertical, driven by NERC-CIP and are beginning to see some initial interest in the healthcare industry in anticipation of requirements for the HITECH Act." 

NitroView's advanced application data monitoring technology enables deep packet inspection of application traffic, providing full decode of application data and meta-data, for maximum visibility into how applications are being used on the network. 

"We consider our positioning in the Visionaries quadrant by Gartner confirmation of our ability to identify and deliver the advanced technologies needed to help organizations address the accelerating regulatory environment and relentless cyber threats," said Ken Levine, CEO of NitroSecurity. "We believe it also speaks highly of the innovation and dedication of our people, who have earned the trust and made us a partner of choice for some of the largest and most demanding public, private and government organizations in the industry."
