NitroSecurity Unveils Industry’s First Content-Aware Security Information and Event Management Platform

NitroSecurity, Inc., today unveiled the NitroView Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) X5, the market’s first content-aware Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platform with the ability to peer deep into application content and individual sessions for greatly enhanced network security forensics. Boasting a massive memory capacity of 512 Gigabytes of high-speed DRAM, the NitroView ESM X5 has broken the performance barrier that has commonly plagued legacy SIEM’s by boosting speed and the ability to collect and report on security events by a factor of ten.

“SIEM systems must evolve well beyond log management if they are to truly become a critical element of the enterprise security contingency plan,” said Michael Leland, chief technology officer of NitroSecurity. “NitroView X5 gives security managers the unprecedented ability to examine their infrastructure in full granular detail, including application content and full session details. It’s the difference between guessing that a security breach may have happened four hours ago and knowing exactly which workstation, employee, and method was implemented to illegally capture credit card information.”

NitroView ESM X5 builds on the company’s flagship product NitroView ESM, a robust security platform widely recognized as the marketplace’s highest performing SIEM with the ability to collect, correlate and report on security events from every device, application, and data source associated with an enterprise network in real-time – a requirement for enterprises looking for an immediate response capability.

At the core of a ten-fold jump in performance is a dedicated memory bank of 512 Gigabytes of high-speed DRAM, which allows NitroView to scale even higher without losing performance. As a result, the X5 can support uncompressed collection rates of up to 100,000 events and flows per second, and over 40 million events per second using event aggregation technology.

“When you’re managing thousands of servers, you can’t wait hours for the information you need to investigate a threat, because a threat can propagate quickly. If it’s a virus, every second increases the scope and cost of disinfecting the network. If it’s a breach of sensitive data, that data is going to move outside of your control very quickly. In any case, every second counts, and every second costs real dollars,” stated Leland. “NitroView was already recognized as the highest-performance SIEM in the industry, but it’s a not a question of being the fastest: it’s a question of being fast enough to support content-aware correlation, especially in very large networks.”

NitroSecurity’s quest for high-performance information management isn’t new. The company’s core technology represents over 20 years of research and development, with several patents around data collection, storage and analysis that have allowed NitroView to distinguish itself into a new class of security information management. This technology, called NitroEDB, is sufficient to improve data management performance well beyond the capabilities of the traditional SQL or flat-file database systems used by other SIEMs—and is already responsible for earning NitroSecurity the leading position in SIEM performance.
