Visualization Engine Provides Security Insight

SOLVE (Simple On-Line Visualization Engine) allows users to see security threats as they occur

CHICAGO – November 5th – North Nine today announced updates to their SOLVE product. SOLVE (Simple On-Line Visualization Engine) allows users to see security threats as they occur, track malicious activity in real time and provides users with actionable data and intelligence so they can fight back. Major changes in this update include even faster performance and expanded reporting for Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP). Conventus, a leading national security consultancy, will bring the product to market as the exclusive reseller.

SOLVE closes the gaps in enterprise security quickly and efficiently and connects directly to Symantec Endpoint Protection, Symantec Critical System Protection and Symantec Data Loss Prevention, and other security products to generate a comprehensive view of security. Without installing new hardware or manual copying, SOLVE consolidates security data to show a real time view and provide actionable data. Users can see if security products are properly configured and deployed in a visual interface, and can take a closer look at individual products through drill-down views.

The North Nine team improved SOLVE by expanding reporting capabilities for Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) as well as introducing a new feature that allows users to add notes to charts. The update also brings a new printer-friendly view for dashboards and even faster performance than previous versions.

"There is no extensive back-end infrastructure required, it's easy to install, easy to configure, and infinitely easier to get the RIGHT data out in order to answer 'big data' questions" said Sarah Isaacs, Managing Partner of Conventus.

Conventus worked closely in conjunction with North Nine to provide tools that help identify suspicious behavior and illuminate security risks. A Symantec National Platinum Partner, Conventus specializes in endpoint and server security, compliance and data loss prevention. Thought leaders in cyber security, the firm's management team has spoken and written widely on IT security.
