More Than 1000 Customers Select RSA enVision® Platform for Business Acceleration

  • 14 February, 2008 11:49

<p><i>RSA Announces Major Achievements in its Information and Event Management Business</i></p>
<p>RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), today announced that more than 1000 customers have selected the RSA enVision® platform engineered to collect, monitor, analyse and report on security event-related activity throughout the IT infrastructure.</p>
<p>Of those customers, more than 400 signed deals to deploy the RSA enVision platform between September 2006, when EMC acquired Network Intelligence, and January 31, 2008. Given the modularity and scalability of the RSA enVision solution, the customer base ranges from large global organisations that need to manage security and compliance in complex, global IT environments, to small businesses that value the simple deployment and out-of- the box reporting capabilities.</p>
<p>"RSA is extremely proud of the continued growth in our Information and Event Management business," said John Worrall, vice president and general manager, Information and Event Management Group, at RSA. "We're succeeding in building and strengthening our relationships with existing customers, and seeing great traction in attracting new customers looking for a single, integrated security information and event management (SIEM) solution to address the differing requirements of multiple enterprise departments."</p>
<p><b>A 3-in-1 solution</b></p>
<p>The RSA enVision platform is engineered to collect All the Data necessary to effectively and efficiently maximise an organisation's security posture and to reduce the burden of compliance. It is designed to give companies a single, integrated "3-in-1" solution for providing comprehensive, reliable log management; simplifying compliance through automated auditing, monitoring, alerting and reporting; and enhancing security and risk mitigation. The RSA enVision platform is also built to be integrated with EMC's network storage offerings, offering customers a cradle-to-grave approach for the management of security compliance log event data.</p>
<p>New opportunities for RSA's channel partner community Channel partners have also enjoyed success selling the RSA enVision platform. In February 2007, RSA made the solution available to - and through - authorised RSA distributors worldwide and, since that time, numerous RSA SecurWorld partners have become authorised to resell the product.</p>
<p>"RSA's enVision platform has helped us solve the business problems that exist for many of our large clients - a proliferation of log data coupled with a compliance mandate to manage, analyse and report on that data," said Dan Wilson, vice president of Partner Alliances, Accuvant, an RSA SecurWorld partner. "The enVision platform is designed to make a positive impact on our client's compliance and security posture, and the enhanced capabilities that RSA has added in the past 18 months have made a strong solution even stronger. We're happy that we've invested in this platform, and the more sophisticated solutions being offered by RSA - it allows us to raise the level of conversation we can have with our clients from a point-product sale to a solution to their business problems."</p>
<p><b>Significant Milestones</b></p>
<p>To truly secure sensitive network and data assets, organisations must have a complete view of activity surrounding all the data on the network. Complete collection of all event data, including employee activities, access to customer and financial information, and suspect or denied access attempts from outside the network, is key to full security and compliance regulation coverage. The RSA enVision platform is engineered to allow organisations to capture data in real time from thousands of disparate devices and applications across the enterprise. The Universal Device Support feature is built to provide the ability to add message collection from devices and applications in an ad-hoc manner. Since September 2006, the number of devices from which the RSA enVision platform can collect event data has increased by 23 percent, with the platform now supporting more than 148 devices.</p>
<p>With its scalable data collection and vast view of all the data, the RSA enVision reporting engine is designed to provide quick and easy access to compliance-sensitive data. Built-in reports are available for specific compliance regulations including PCI, SOX, FISMA, GLBA and HIPAA, and organisations can create reports based on their specific compliance policies. The RSA enVision solution is now engineered to provide 1117 built-in reports.</p>
<p><b>Awards and Recognition</b></p>
<p>Info Security Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and the world's leading publication on security-related products and technologies has named the RSA enVision technology a winner of the 2008 Global Product Excellence in Event Management Customer Trust Award.</p>

"Product innovation and customer trust are key to trouncing global economy uncertainties in 2008. We are pleased to honour the RSA enVision solution as winner for 2008 and all the finalists who participated."
