Prism Microsystems named finalist in GSN’s annual homeland security award

EventTracker recognized as a leader in the Security Incident and Event Management category

Columbia, MD – Prism Microsystems, developers of the most comprehensive and feature-rich Security Information and Event Log Management (SIEM) solution in the industry, has been named a finalist in the 1st annual homeland security awards by GSN (Government Security News) Magazine. This marks yet another accolade for EventTracker, which has already received recognition from SC Magazine, InfoSecurity Products Guide and CODiE awards in 2009.

EventTracker, Prism’s SIEM solution, was selected as a finalist in the Security Incident and Event Management category following a comprehensive evaluation by a panel of judges comprised of industry experts from think tanks, non-profit organizations, academia and government. The process was overseen by GSN’s editor-in-chief, Jacob Goodwin.

“We received an extraordinary number of entries,” said Adrian Courtenay, a managing director of World Business Media, LLC, the owner of GSN: Government Security News. “We have carefully reviewed each entry and are now very pleased to announce an exceptionally strong field of finalists.”

“Government agencies are increasingly looking for solutions that allow them to utilize commodity hardware and virtual technology. As a software solution in an appliance dominated industry, EventTracker is uniquely positioned to address these requirements while enabling compliance with regulations such as FISMA and proactively detecting external and internal security intrusions,” said Steve Lafferty. “Our inclusion as a finalist in this prestigious government award highlights our position as a leader in the field of IT security and compliance.”

EventTracker incorporates the broadest range of features in one all-inclusive software package for a comprehensive approach to government security and compliance requirements. These include real-time event correlation, change auditing, secure log storage, automated audit trail creation, user activity and USB device monitoring, anomaly detection, network connection monitoring, and pre-configured compliance reports. Prism recently also announced that it was officially in evaluation for Common Criteria certification, giving government organizations yet another reason to select EventTracker.

Winners will be announced at the GSN awards ceremony on October 27th.
