U.S. Army Adds NitroSecurity's NitroView to Information Assurance Approved Products List

First SIEM With FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Common Criteria v3.1 EAL3 to Achieve Army Approval

PORTSMOUTH, NH--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and compliance management solutions, today announced that its NitroView family of security solutions has been added to the U.S. Army Information Assurance Approved Products List (IA-APL).

NitroView is the industry's first and only content-aware Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system and offers an extensive range of integrated capabilities, including Log Management, Database Monitoring, Application Data Monitoring and Intrusion Prevention. In addition, inclusion on the IA-APL positions NitroView as the only SIEM with FIPS 140-2 level 2 validation and Common Criteria v3.1 EAL3 certification to achieve Army approval. NitroSecurity is also currently under contract for Common Criteria v3.1 EAL4 certification.

NitroView successfully passed the rigorous and extensive testing conducted by the U.S. Army Technology Integration Center (TIC) for the U.S. Army Office of Information Assurance and Compliance (OIA&C). Recognized as the SIEM market's uncontested performance leader, NitroView delivers advanced threat detection and incident management to protect the Army's critical data assets and IT infrastructure as unauthorized security breaches and cyber-warfare remain top concerns for the Department of Defense (DoD).

"We are very pleased and proud to have earned our place on the Army's Approved Products List," said John Cummings, Executive Vice President, Federal Systems Division at NitroSecurity. "Today's Army needs the best possible tools to help it carry out its mission both at home and abroad. NitroView will give the Army the ability to peer deep into their network infrastructure in full granular detail pinpointing any perceived threat before any real damage can occur."

As the industry's first and only content-aware SIEM platform, NitroView, unlike legacy SIEM providers whose slower performance limits information visibility to standard network device and server logs, drills deep and monitors all traffic on the network including the application layer, protocol use and individual sessions. Using patented data storage and management technology that has smashed performance barriers plaguing other SIEM platforms, NitroView is able to collect and manage billions of events, logs, network activity flows and even application content -- while maintaining the real-time analytics that are required for rapid incident response.
