    Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management,(1) (SIEM), 1Q07
    report.  Analysts Mark Nicolett and Kelly Kavanagh, who authored the

    data -- two functional capabilities embedded in TriGeo's SIM solution.

    a clear vision of market directions and are actively building
    competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.

    network activity with real-time analysis, alerts and active response.
--  Info-Tech Research Group positioned TriGeo as a "Competitor," in its
    Decision Diamond Award for Security Information Management (SIM) Solutions.
    The company was selected based on its ease of use, pricing and product
    architecture and was highlighted as the most widely deployed SIM solution
    across mid-market enterprises.
--  Attendees at Gartner's Midsize Enterprise Summit™ 2007 named TriGeo
    the Best Mid-market Solution for hardware innovation for the second
    consecutive year, recognizing the company's commitment to ease of use and
