AlertEnterprise Awarded Most Innovative Product at the 6th Annual 'The Security Summit' in San Diego

Gains top spot for Information Assurance, Cyber Security and Security Software, named runner up for Best in Show in all categories

FREMONT, Calif., May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- AlertEnterprise(TM), Inc., a red hot software startup in the rapidly emerging space of security convergence for physical and logical security, won the coveted Most Innovative Product and Service award in the Information Assurance, Cyber Security and Security Software category at the 6th Annual "The Security Summit" held May 20-21, 2009 in San Diego, California. In addition to landing the top slot in its category, AlertEnterprise delighted attendees and judges in all categories and was also named runner up for the Best in Show award.

The Security Network serves as the organizer and lead sponsor of the annual Security Summit and on-going events, including working groups and other regularly scheduled meetings. The Security Network is a non-profit public-private partnership consisting of industry, government, and academic institutions combining together to promote the development of dual usage security technologies needed by both public and private sectors. "Across the board, this year's group of dual-use technologies were extremely impressive," said Michael B. Jones, Chairman and President of The Security Network. "Being selected as the winning product among such a high level of competition is testament to AlertEnterprise's focus on innovation and effectiveness that will impact the security market for many years."

AlertEnterprise bridges the single most overlooked gap in enterprise security - the true prevention and detection of cross-enterprise threats by linking physical access and IT security to ensure compliance with regulations and standards like NIST SP800-xx, NERC CIP, CFATS, HSPD, C-TPATS, MTSA, FISMA and most DoD regulations. Additionally there is support for Sox, HIPAA, CobiT and other commercial standards. AlertEnterprise delivers unprecedented capabilities to visualize previously undetectable threats and assists managers in remediating security risk across the enterprise. Real-time risk monitoring, geo-spatial visualization and actionable risk remediation can stop any potential theft, sabotage or act of terrorism right in their tracks.

Most security industry experts agree that dissolving these silos between physical access security, IT security, and critical infrastructure security is the best way to create actionable information to protect national infrastructure, provide information assurance and deliver a unified risk-led response to threats from terrorism, malicious behavior and fraudulent activity. Jasvir Gill, founder and CEO of AlertEnterprise takes this mission to heart. His previous startup Virsa Systems was one of the most successful acquisitions by SAP to date and has became the core of the SAP GRC offering delivering application level security. "The most insidious risks are simple acts that slip between physical and logical security systems. They may not individually trigger an alert in any one system. But, in combination they create an ominous risk picture that may defy detection unless your physical and logical security systems talk to each other," says Jasvir.

AlertEnterprise products are available as COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) software that works with existing enterprise systems and physical access control systems delivering incremental return on investments in applications like ERP systems, IT security automation solutions and critical infrastructure management solutions for energy management, oil and gas, chemicals processing and mass transport. Jasvir goes on to add, "We value our association with the Security Network and appreciate the participation in the Security Summit which provides an opportunity for innovative companies with the best technology to be vetted by the community most involved in the strategic and tactical aspects of securing our nation. AlertEnterprise's unique ability to combine physical access security with mission-critical computer systems and applications has a particular appeal for Federal, Military, Homeland Security, and Intelligence operations." Furthermore, "AlertEnterprise delivers unique and innovative solutions that discover blended threat patterns already present in existing systems. It stitches together a fabric that completes the picture on risks that were previously undetectable and automates the process of remediating those risks. This puts us way ahead of solutions just looking at conventional security."
