SIEM Industry Leader NitroSecurity Wins InfoWorld Technology of the Year Award

NitroView ESM and NitroView ELM Combination Recognized as Best Log Management Solution of 2010

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - January 12, 2011) - NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management (SIEM) solutions, today announced that its integrated NitroView ESM and NitroView ELM solution earned the prestigious 2011 InfoWorld Technology of the Year Award. This honor is the result of NitroSecurity's #1 ranking, outscoring six other vendors to achieve the highest overall score in the August "InfoWorld Review: Better Network Security, Compliance with Log Management."

Selected by IDG's InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers, the annual InfoWorld Technology of the Year Awards identify the best and most innovative products on the IT landscape. Winners are drawn from all of the products tested during the past year, with the final selections made by InfoWorld's Test Center staff.

"Of all the products we tested in the past year, these are the ones that impressed us the most," said Doug Dineley, Executive Editor/Test Center, InfoWorld. "Our Technology of the Year Award winners are not just the best products in their class, but the ones that are changing the way IT services are delivered and the way people work."

InfoWorld Test Center Editor Roger Grimes praised the NitroView ESM and NitroView ELM combination for its "wealth of log management functionality with outstanding versatility in graphs and views." According to Grimes: "Any data element in a chart can be drilled into or out for more detail or context. For example, on a chart showing a weekly volume indicator, you can select a particular week to see the figures for each day. Select a particular day and see the figures for each hour. Select a particular hour to drill down to the individual events."

Grimes also highlighted the company's ability to identify and report "deviations from the baseline" so security analysts can "capture and establish a baseline of normal event patterns," and then "easily create reports and views to show abnormal events and trends." And he cited the customizability and configurability of the NitroSecurity dashboard, which can "allow extensive modifications where almost any metric, graph, or alert can be shown."

"NitroSecurity's mission is a commitment to partnering with our customers to provide game-changing security and compliance solutions that protect their most precious information assets," said Ken Levine, CEO of NitroSecurity. "InfoWorld is widely regarded as one of the industry's most respected IT resources, so earning the Technology of the Year Award is tremendous validation and endorsement of our products, technology and team."
