Top Analyst Firm Positions TriGeo in the Leaders Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management

Expanding SIEM Market Drives the Need for Log Management and Ease of Deployment

POST FALLS, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 14, 2007 -- TriGeo Network Security, the leading provider of security information and event management technology for mid-market enterprises, today announced that Gartner Inc. has positioned TriGeo in the leaders quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management(1), (SIEM), 1Q07 report.

According to Gartner analysts Mark Nicolett and Kelly Kavanagh, who authored the report, "The SIEM market is driven by customer needs to analyze security event data in real time (for threat management, primarily focused on network events) and to analyze and report on log data (for security policy compliance monitoring, primarily focused on host and application events)." The Magic Quadrant's evaluation criteria weighed the importance of ease of deployment combined with real-time analysis of host system, security device and network infrastructure log data in determining the market leaders.

"We think our position in Gartner's leaders quadrant validates our mission to deliver the market's most complete SIEM offering to meet regulatory compliance requirements. TriGeo SIM also helps our customers stay ahead of evolving security threats such as zero-day attacks, anomalous behavior and the ever present insider threat," said Michelle Dickman, president of TriGeo Network Security. "We are proud of this evaluation and believe our position in the SIEM Magic Quadrant is recognition of our technology advancement, business execution and ongoing customer satisfaction."

TriGeo is the only SIEM solution that offers:

--  Real-time log analysis and in-memory event correlation for high speed
    detection of network attacks, anomalous behavior, insider abuse and policy
    violations
--  Proactive network defense with highly targeted active responses that
    quarantine, block, route and control services, processes, accounts and
    privileges
--  More than 240 pre-built reports for regulatory compliance and network
    analysis
--  An affordable solution for the mid-market, starting below $20,000
    
Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management report highlights the need for compliance, stating that, "The compliance driver has also changed the buyer profile, which is now extended to organizations that have smaller security staffs and more limited system support capabilities. For these buyers, predefined function and ease of deployment and support is valued over advanced function and extensive customization."

TriGeo was the first SIEM company to identify the security and compliance needs of mid-market organizations -- in 2001 -- and today has hundreds of customers across key vertical markets including financial services, health care, government, utility, retail and media/entertainment.

Gartner positioned vendors in the Security Information and Event Management Magic Quadrant based on the vendor's overall ability to execute and completeness of vision. Gartner defines "Leaders" as those who are performing well today, have a clear vision of market directions and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.
