2008-07-15 08:00:00

   Companies' Joint Technologies Further Unify Information Security From

      Edge-to-Core Battling Data Breaches; Meets Stringent Compliance

                                Requirements



    PORTSMOUTH, N.H., July 15 /EMWPresswire/ -- NitroSecurity, Inc.

(http://www.nitrosecurity.com), a provider of high performance, unified

information security solutions, today announced that it has acquired

RippleTech. The combination of NitroSecurity's award winning Security

Information & Event Management (SIEM) and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

solutions with RippleTech's Database Activity Monitoring and Log Management

solutions, allows companies to better protect their critical data and

infrastructure with one integrated solution.



    The addition of RippleTech's products allow NitroSecurity to deliver

the industry's highest performance, fully integrated, SIEM and log

management solution. Utilizing the company's patented NitroEDB

(http://www.nitrosecurity.com/solutions/technology/rdme/) data management

technology enables support for large volume storage and analysis regarding

logs and events. Additionally, integrating Database Activity Monitoring

(DAM) to the collaborative product line provides enterprises with the

functionality to mitigate risks resulting from database vulnerabilities and

also addresses the dynamic compliance regulations businesses of all sizes

are charged with meeting, such as PCI, SOX, GBLA and HIPAA.



    "The combination of SIEM and log management capabilities is an

industry-changing offering that we are going to start to see more often,"

said Mike Montecillo, analyst, EMA. "The marriage of the technologies

creates a better way for the enterprise to safeguard itself from threats

that could compromise the network. In the security industry, we see the

consolidation of products and solutions all the time. This is just another

example of how the market is changing to provide end-users with better and

smarter choices for their IT needs."



    "The acquisition of RippleTech allows us to answer a huge market need

for an integrated, unified security solution from edge to core," said Ken

Levine, chief executive officer, NitroSecurity. "NitroSecurity's product

suite integrated with RippleTech's log management and database activity

monitoring solutions, takes network visibility and protection to an

entirely new level. The ability to provide deep network visibility and

simultaneously monitor database activity, and meet compliance requirements,

is a notable stride in the industry."



    With the onslaught of data breaches affecting the enterprise, there is

an imminent and growing market demand for comprehensive network security

and database monitoring solutions. According to a November 2007 Gartner,

Inc. report titled DAM Technology Provides Monitoring and Analytics With

Less Overhead, by Marc Nicolett and Jeffrey Wheatman, "Monitoring and

analysis of critical data access is becoming a compliance standard of due

care, and this capability is also required to detect data breaches in the

event of a successful targeted attack."



    NitroGuard Database Monitor (formerly RippleTech Informant) is a

database activity monitoring solution that provides comprehensive security

for data-centric applications vulnerable to insider theft and

application-layer attacks like SQL injection. NitroView LogCaster (formerly

RippleTech LogCaster) is a fully-developed log management solution with

universal collection capabilities that uniquely utilizes agent, agentless

and network-based collection capabilities to deliver a more scalable log

management platform.



    All RippleTech's employees have joined the NitroSecurity team and the

combined product suite will be sold and supported by the joint sales and

technical force. Both RippleTech products will be fully integrated into the

NitroGuard and NitroView product families over the next 3-6 months. In

addition to direct sales, all products will be offered through

NitroSecurity's global channel.



    NitroSecurity will hold a webinar on Wednesday July 30th from 2:00 p.m.

-- 3:00 p.m. ET, to discuss the benefits of Unified Information Security

with SIEM, DAM and Log Management. Please visit
