In addition, FishNet Security provides its customers with 24/7 visibility into their SIEM operations via a customizable Web-based portal.

"It's no secret that corporate networks are constantly under attack in search of information that can be used maliciously. This constant attempt to exploit vulnerabilities must be counteracted, and after considering available options, we selected a SIEM managed solution that would enable us to stay ahead of the latest threats and raise our security posture," said Paul Telle, Lead Infosec Administrator with Arch Coal. "The information delivered by FishNet Security's experts enables us to manage the latest threats, achieve compliance and provides our organization with a level of confidence and assurance."

FishNet Security built its SIEM managed security service on RSA's (the Security Division of EMC) enVision and Q1 Lab's QRadar solutions, both recognized by Gartner as "Leaders" in the 2009 SIEM Magic Quadrant.
