Leading analyst firm recognises NitroView family for integrated security management capabilities
NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management (SIEM) solutions today announced that the company's NitroView product portfolio has been recognised as "a high-throughput, performance-led SIEM solution that can inspect all forms of network traffic" by leading analyst firm Ovum in a detailed Technology Audit.
In the Audit, NitroSecurity's NitroView is recognised as "a family of integrated security management products that were developed to deliver accuracy, performance and scalability" whilst their value proposition includes NitroView's analytical capabilities to identify, correlate, and report on security and compliance issues as they occur. Key findings of the Audit include:
- NitroView is a high-throughput, performance-led SIEM solution.
- Speed of incident correlation and remediation are key business benefits.
- The extended solution deals with log management, database activity monitoring and application content inspection.
- NitroView can also integrate with and collect data from core industrial control systems (ICSs) - utility companies, manufacturing, transportation, etc.
Andy Kellett, Principal Analyst and Author of the report, comments: "All organisations have to deal with the threats and compliance issues which the increasing volumes of data that flow across their IT systems and networks cause. NitroSecurity provides SIEM facilities that fulfil the information and security management needs of large enterprise customers without ignoring the middle and small business markets."
NitroSecurity's core product, NitroView Enterprise Security Manager, is the industry's highest performance and most scalable SIEM solution available and is able to report on months of data in just seconds, whilst supporting hundreds of thousands of events per second on a single appliance.
Kellett concludes: "The company's approach to the provision of security and information management makes the NitroView product set relevant to most on-premise operations. Virtual versions of its appliances are becoming available, with the first being virtual receivers to help reduce deployment costs in highly distributed environments with multiple small or remote outlets such as retail and banking."
"We are immensely proud to have been recognised by one of Europe's leading analyst firms for the powerful, advanced and unique capabilities provided by our industry-leading NitroView solution," said Ken Levine, CEO of NitroSecurity. "Our business has grown rapidly in Europe in 2011 as we have helped enterprises and government bodies address compliance and security challenges. This recognition from leading analyst firm Ovum is a further testament of NitroSecurity providing real-time security intelligence solutions."
