Companies partner to simplify compliance reporting, threat detection, real-time incident response, and forensic investigations
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. and SANTA CLARA, Calif. – August 16, 2011 – NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management (SIEM) solutions, today announced that it has joined Palo Alto Networks’ Technology Partnership Program. NitroSecurity and Palo Alto Networks have integrated content-aware SIEM and next-generation firewall technology into a complete enterprise security solution designed to simplify compliance reporting, threat detection, real-time incident response and forensic investigations.

Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation firewalls capture rich user and application context, providing increased control of applications and prevention of advanced threats. NitroSecurity’s award-winning NitroView SIEM augments these capabilities with full content- and network session-awareness, and time-adjustable baseline and trend analysis. By storing information generated by Palo Alto Networks’ firewalls, NitroView empowers enterprises with the ability to analyze activity patterns and identify anomalies, sophisticated attacks and insider threats in order to bolster their security posture.

“The Technology Partnership Program is designed to foster collaboration among leading vendors and arm enterprises with security solutions that integrate seamlessly into existing network infrastructures, reduce operational costs and improve overall risk profiles,” said Punit Minocha, Vice President of Corporate and Business Development at Palo Alto Networks. “We’re excited to welcome NitroSecurity into our partner ecosystem and look forward to delivering integrated solutions that help organizations more efficiently detect and combat today’s ever-evolving network security threats.”

“NitroView delivers unmatched scalability and ‘single pane of glass’ visibility into – and invaluable context around – security logs and events, and next-generation, risk-based correlation to detect external and insider threats that don’t play by the rules. Combining that with data captured by Palo Alto Networks’ firewalls fuels even more effective security initiatives,” said Doug Bailey, EVP of Business Development at NitroSecurity. “We’re thrilled to join the select group of companies in Palo Alto Networks’ Technology Partnership Program and collaborate in providing robust, high-value security solutions to enterprises.”
