TriGeo Receives Technology Innovation of the Year Award

Frost & Sullivan Highlights Easy-to-Use Security Information and Event Management That Detects -- and Defends

POST FALLS, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 22, 2007 -- TriGeo Network Security, the proactive network defense company, received Frost & Sullivan's 2007 North American Technology Innovation of the Year Award for Security Information Management and Analysis. The global growth consulting company noted that TriGeo delivers the much-needed combination of intelligent in-memory event correlation of network activity with real-time analysis, alerts and active response.

The award recognizes the business impact of TriGeo's intelligent correlation and proactive network defense technology -- because it stops potential threats before they can wreak havoc. TriGeo's Security Information and Event Management solutions are extremely cost-effective and easy-to-deploy -- making them ideal for mid-size enterprises.

"Mid-tier companies need solutions that act -- not just watch -- capturing meaningful data in real-time to stop intruders in their tracks," said Michelle Dickman, president of TriGeo. "By immediately correlating potential threats, we quickly single out activities that merit additional attention and can take highly targeted automated responses."

With this award, Frost & Sullivan recognizes new research that drives innovation which will significantly accelerate industry change -- and may well alter the competitive marketplace. It specifically cited the quality and depth of TriGeo's research and development program, and its vision for dramatically overhauling the business-as-usual standard that settled for mere data, instead of actionable information.

"Data theft and network breaches can have a devastating impact on organizational productivity," said Narendran Vaideeswaran, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "TriGeo's novel Security Information and Event Management technology insists on attack avoidance rather than just notification."

TriGeo software helps hundreds of companies protect their networks and ensure strong regulatory compliance. Its solution is ideal for mid-sized businesses -- with limited IT resources -- helping them monitor network activity in real time, automatically identify potentially harmful behavior and actively respond to internal or external threats.
