NetCitadel Named Finalist in Multiple Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards Categories -- NetCitadel Honored in “Best Security Software” and “Innovation in Enterprise Security” Awards Categories for Delivering Security Event Context, Intelligence and Real-Time Response to Address Next-Generation Threats

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 23, 2014 -- NetCitadel, Inc., the pioneer in innovative threat management solutions, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide, has named NetCitadel’s ThreatOptics™ as a finalist for the 10th Annual 2014 Global Excellence Awards in both the Best Security Software and Innovation in Enterprise Security awards categories. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

The evolving complexity and increased frequency of malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) have driven the need for next-generation Advanced Malware Detection (AMD) solutions and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). While effective, these detection tools generate unmanageable volumes of security alerts, and make it difficult for Incident Response teams to verify, prioritize, and respond to the most urgent threats in a timely and effective manner. Traditional response processes are manual, time-consuming and error-prone, thus leaving organizations exposed. This, combined with the ongoing shortage of skilled cyber security resources, necessitates a new, more automated approach to incident response.

“NetCitadel’s ThreatOptics is the industry’s first solution that applies context and intelligence to detected security events to dramatically reduce incident response times to APTs and malware attacks, and we are pleased to have earned this recognition from Info Security Products Guide,” said Neil Stratz, NetCitadel VP of Sales and Marketing. “Today’s incident response solutions overwhelm security analysts and Incident Response teams with far too many alerts to address issues in real-time. Without the proper context, it is almost impossible for them to prioritize events and make good security decisions. NetCitadel enables security analysts to quickly verify which issues are real and need to be addressed, and which issues can be safely deprioritized.”

NetCitadel ThreatOptics is the first threat management platform of its kind, addressing the security analysis and intelligence needs of today’s Incident Response teams. NetCitadel’s analytics-driven approach uniquely adds rich context data to security events generated by devices such as FireEye®, Palo Alto Networks®, and HP ArcSight®, and analyzes the data to facilitate rapid and intelligent decisions. In addition, ThreatOptics integrates with existing security enforcement devices, such as firewalls and web proxies, to deliver real-time responses to security events.
