TriGeo Unveils SIM Version 5.1

New Release Combines Real-Time Event Analysis with Visual Search Technology and Delivers New Insight and Control to Midmarket Organizations Drowning in Log Data
POST FALLS, ID (Aug. 31, 2010) — TriGeo Network Security, the leading provider of security information and event management (SIEM) technology for midmarket enterprises, just launched TriGeo SIM Version 5.1, a new release of its fifth generation SIEM solution that incorporates enhanced visual search technology designed specifically for midmarket organizations in financial services, healthcare, government, utility, retail and media/entertainment. TriGeo’s integration of real-time analysis with robust new data visualization and search capabilities makes it easier than ever for midmarket organizations to identify network incidents and uncover suspicious behavior, insider abuse and policy violations while validating compliance. TriGeo SIM Version 5.1 makes it possible to monitor, analyze, visualize, search, report and respond from a single, easy-to-navigate console.

“Ease-of-use and streamlined console navigation are especially important for midmarket businesses that are tapping enterprise security and information management (ESIM) technology to secure their networks and extend the capabilities of their IT department,” said Andrew Hay, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Security Practice at The 451 Group.

TriGeo SIM Version 5.1 enhancements include:

• A new graphical search builder that makes it quick and easy to build complex searches with drag-and-drop and point-and-click simplicity. The enhancement doesn’t require knowledge of complex query language and can use predefined components including Active Directory groups, critical servers, privileged accounts, custom white and black lists and more.

• Interactive ‘word cloud’ data visualization to provide a unique, drill-down insight into network event activity. TriGeo is the first SIEM provider to deliver an array of interactive data visualization tools including a word cloud, tree map, bubble chart, histogram and more.

• A bundled search library with preconfigured searches that ensure that businesses net immediate results with a solid foundation of tools for forensic investigation, and templates that can be tuned to specific network environment and security policies.

• Searching without using the ‘search box.’ Users have the power to investigate incidents, find suspicious behavior, and identify policy violations with the enhanced visual search tools.

“It’s impossible to search for something if you don’t know what you are looking for – making the ‘empty search box’ in forensic analysis tools virtually useless for many midmarket businesses,” said Michelle Dickman, president and CEO of TriGeo Network Security. “In TriGeo SIM Version 5.1, we’ve reinvented log analysis by adding a ‘visual search’ experience that gives users the critical context needed to see the haystacks and point-and-click simplicity to drill down and find the event needles.”

TriGeo SIM is the most powerful SIEM solution available for midmarket organizations. Earlier this month, the technology topped 10 other SIEM solutions and was named the ‘Best Buy’ in SC Magazine’s 2010 SIEM roundup – the publication’s top ranking. TriGeo’s rapid pace of innovation and consistent industry recognition reflect the company’s commitment to excellence, and its focus on the specific needs of midmarket organizations.

Delivered as a fully configured appliance, TriGeo SIM supports hundreds of network devices, and comes stocked with more than 700 security and network monitoring rules and more than 300 pre-built reports for compliance and network analysis. The solution goes far beyond simple log management, providing real-time log analysis to identify network attacks and policy violations as they happen and initiate proactive responses such as quarantining, blocking, and USB device defense. All of this is available at a price starting below $20,000 for North American-based deployments. The company has hundreds of customers across financial services, retail, healthcare, education, government, utility and media/entertainment.
