netForensics Unveils the Next Generation of Security Information Management

Advanced SIM Offering Features State-of-the-Art Visualization and Risk Assessment Capabilities

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ — netForensics, Inc., the recognized leader in Security Information Management (SIM), today announced the general availability of netForensics 3.0, featuring significant advancements in real-time correlation, risk assessment and visualization. netForensics 3.0 represents a new level of SIM technology — demonstrating measurable return on investment by letting companies manage their growing security device infrastructure without increasing the size of their existing security staff.

netForensics 3.0 is being showcased this week at the SANS exposition at the Washington Convention Center, booth # 507.

Matt Speare, Director of IT Risk Management at Ohio Savings, understands the difficulties of managing large enterprise security networks. “Manually monitoring our security devices would take twice the staff we have available today,” says Speare. “netForensics 3.0 eliminates this problem by instantly translating thousands of events into the few critical incidents that necessitate response. Now our current staff can easily monitor our growing security infrastructure, and the new executive dashboard gives us additional value through risk and threat assessment reports.”

With netForensics, security managers employ a single real-time console to centrally detect and respond to security events across the enterprise as they occur — so threats are resolved before they become a problem. netForensics 3.0 raises the bar of SIM technology with enhanced risk and threat assessment capabilities that include event scoring, categorization, and state-of-the-art visualization. This advanced architecture also features maximum scalability and easy integration, ensuring high-performance security for any enterprise.

“When you look at the current security landscape, there are a lot of products deployed at different points within the enterprise, but unless security managers have a way to monitor these devices on a large scale, the value is limited and the security architecture is incomplete,” said Pete Lindstrom, research director for Spire Security. “Security management products like netForensics make large-scale monitoring possible, and add further return on investment through event correlation and analysis.”

“Most security professionals today are experiencing a lack of control, trying desperately to deploy enough security products to mitigate increasing risks. SIM solutions are indispensable in the face of those threats, and netForensics 3.0 is by far the most advanced solution in the space right now. It offers unmatched capabilities for real-time event analysis, risk assessment and threat mitigation — a comprehensive approach to enterprise security,” said Rajeev Khanolkar, CEO of netForensics.
