TriGeo Named a Finalist for Red Herring 100 Award

Three Industry Nods -- This Month -- Highlight SIEM as the Go-To Security Technology for Mid-Market Companies

POST FALLS, ID--(Marketwire - April 16, 2008) - TriGeo Network Security, the leading provider of security information and event management (SIEM) technology for mid-market enterprises, has been chosen as a finalist for the 2008 North American Red Herring 100 Award. This recognition adds to an already impressive month for TriGeo -- having been named the #1 technology innovator on Bank Technology News' FutureNow List and the "Best Event Management Solution" for the second consecutive year in the SC Magazine Reader Trust Awards.

The 2008 North American Red Herring 100 recognizes private companies that are playing a leading role in innovation and technology. TriGeo was selected as a finalist by Red Herring's editorial staff from a pool of nearly 1,200 private companies for its quality of management, execution of strategy, and dedication to research and development.

"We can see the exciting evolution of the technology sector reflected in the quality and variety of exceptional companies that we had to choose from in putting our list together," said Joel Dreyfuss, editor-in-chief of Red Herring. "It was tough to choose just 200 finalists from such a large list of excellent contenders, and we are very happy with the quality of the companies we selected as finalists."

TriGeo's Security Information Manager (SIM) is the only real-time SIEM appliance that automatically identifies, notifies and responds to network attacks, suspicious behavior and policy violations, based on hundreds of pre-built correlation rules and users' customized actions. The solution is designed and priced for mid-market networks and offers proactive network monitoring and controls for insider and hacker activities, giving enterprises the ability to quarantine, block, route and control services, processes, accounts and privileges.

"Hackers are 'thinking small' -- seeing mid-tier businesses as fertile attack grounds because they have fewer staff and technology resources compared to larger enterprises," said Michelle Dickman, president of TriGeo. "We designed our appliance with the mid-market in mind -- including functionality that acts as another set of hands and eyes on the network at a price that doesn't break the bank. We're honored to be a finalist for such a prestigious award as the Red Herring 100."

Winners will be announced at the Red Herring North America conference on May 12-14 in San Jose, California.
