Prism Microsystems and Jacadis partner to deliver managed services to Enterprises for Security Information and Event Log Management (SIEM)

Columbia, MD  – Prism Microsystems, an innovator in integrated Security Information and Event Log Management (SIEM) and Change Management technology, today announced a partnership agreement with Jacadis, a premier provider of specialized information security services and solutions including security assessments, vulnerability management and remediation, and governance and compliance.

Powered by EventTracker, Prism’s software-based solution offering both real-time log management and change monitoring capabilities, this agreement will enable Jacadis to provide customers with complete security visibility into their IT infrastructures extending from the network perimeter to the application layer for effective mitigation of security breaches and confident compliance.

While regulatory mandates such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) are driving the need for the consolidation, analysis, reporting and regular review of log data, increasingly organizations are taking proactive measures to prevent malicious attacks on critical IT systems. A combination of Log Management and Change Monitoring provides a multi-layered defense and is imperative for enterprises to protect themselves in the current threatscape.

“We are extremely pleased to be working with Jacadis, who has tremendous experience in the SIEM and Log Management market”, said Steve Lafferty, VP of Marketing at Prism Microsystems. “The combination of our SIEM offering and Jacadis’ expertise is significant for enterprises looking to improve their security while investing minimal staff and resources.”

“A lot of our customers had been requesting a software-based security monitoring solution as opposed to an appliance-based model, because of superior scalability, flexibility and ease of use associated with the prior,” said Doug Davidson, President of Jacadis. “Prism’s EventTracker solution enhances our existing security services by allowing us to collect, analyze, correlate, store and report on all log data in real-time from multiple customer sites. Since it is software based, we are able to easily scale to different sized implementations in a cost-effective manner.”

Under the terms of the agreement, Jacadis will manage and support EventTracker implementations at various Jacadis client locations across North America.
