Sensage Achieves Record Success Delivering Advanced SIEM to Large Enterprise, Telco and Federal Customers

Posts Record Quarterly Bookings and Profit

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2011) - Sensage, Inc., the leading provider of advanced Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and founder of Open Security Intelligence, today announced double-digit growth in bookings for the quarter ending September 30, 2011. Additionally, Sensage saw accelerated customer and partner traction in Health Care, Telco, Enterprise and Federal Government markets.

"As proactive security organizations keep up with the next-generation of threats, they discover that traditional log management products can't scale to address the massive amounts of data that need to be collected, retained and analyzed," explained Joe Gottlieb, CEO of Sensage. "Sensage is, quite simply, the only solution that can address those requirements -- and our recent success demonstrates that customers recognize the power and scalability of our solution."

In 3Q11, Sensage enjoyed success in three major areas: company execution, partner growth and product validation. Highlights included:

Company Execution
Sequential quarterly customer wins and bookings growth both exceeded 100%, with balanced performance across both direct and channel sales in Federal, Health Care and Telecommunication markets.

  • Strong 3Q11 over 2Q11 bookings growth (exceeding 100 percent) built upon the strong trend established in the prior quarter (2Q11 over 1Q11 bookings growth exceeded 50 percent)
  • Deals over $50k increased 100 percent year-over-year (3Q10 to 3Q11)
  • Achieved sole source status and contract for a major Defense Information Systems Agency project
  • Continued expansion of top secret-cleared personnel, through new and expanded alliances with Federal Government specialist channels like BAE and Government Solution Advisors

"We are seeing a tremendous need by our Government customers for a deeper understanding of their security events," said Pat Burns, CEO of Government Solutions Advisors. "Sensage has the technology that delivers rapid intelligence across vast volumes of data, and we are pleased to partner with them to deliver advanced security management solutions to our joint customers."

"Having spent time with the Sensage team I was really impressed with their ability to solve big data problems and deliver a compelling security solution," said Nigel Stanley, Practice Leader for Security at Bloor Research. "The Sensage partners I have met reflect this with their enthusiastic support for what they see as a compelling channel opportunity to expand their customer SIEM deployments with the Sensage solution."
