Waltham, Mass. - June 21, 2010 - Q1 Labs, the global provider of total security intelligence solutions, today announced QRadar SIOS - the Security Intelligence Operating System - which powers the QRadar family of security intelligence products. QRadar SIOS is the foundation of the industry's first total Security Intelligence Platform, a common framework for collecting, warehousing, filtering, analyzing and reporting on all security intelligence telemetry. This integrated solution will be the platform for risk management, SIEM , log management , and network and application activity monitoring, as well as all new products to be delivered by Q1 Labs and partners.
The benefits of the Security Intelligence Operating System include:
* Convergence: consolidation of previously siloed monitoring and analysis capabilities * Simplicity: multiple functions delivered within a common user experience * Scalability: simplified expansion capabilities for the largest infrastructures
The Security Intelligence Platform is designed so that operators, analysts and auditors can benefit from a common framework, whose key components are:
* A unified data warehouse * Distributed architecture for enterprise scaling * Extensible APIs for data collection, forensics and reporting * Common framework for all searching, filtering, rule writing, and reporting functions * A modular application layer for the seamless addition of new security intelligence capabilities
Today, Q1 Labs' solutions provide customers with a launching pad for their compliance and security threat monitoring efforts. Through QRadar SIOS, users can progressively scale their security intelligence deployments to accommodate their evolving needs and requirements - for example, extending into the newly released QRadar Risk Manager to gain visibility throughout the full threat lifecycle.
"Customers are frustrated with the complexity of point products delivered on multiple vendors' consoles. Q1 Labs' vision of One Console Security is designed to address this challenge by delivering an integrated family of security intelligence solutions," said Brendan Hannigan, President and COO of Q1 Labs. "With all products built upon the QRadar SIOS foundation, Q1 Labs' customers will benefit from operational simplicity, modularity and scale as their security challenges evolve."
