Combination of EventTracker – enterprise grade log management – and JC Hanlon’s Managed Security services set new industry benchmark for providing high-value solutions to SMBs for managing information security and maintaining compliance.

Columbia, MD – Prism Microsystems, a pioneer in log management and developer of the EventTracker solution that enables “logging in depth”, today announced a partnership with JC Hanlon Consulting, Inc. (JCHCI), a leading provider of managed security programs. JCHCI will offer EventTracker as the critical enabling software component of their Managed Security Services (MSS) offerings to help small sized enterprises reduce the cost and complexity associated with managing information security and maintaining confident compliance.

With the growing number of data thefts and network attacks as well as the emergence of increased regulatory edicts companies are increasingly required to monitor their IT infrastructures to gain complete visibility of security threats and data misuse.

For small companies, however, this task takes on daunting proportions due to their limited budgets, resources and internal capabilities. “Together with Prism Microsystems we are not only able to help our customers address the need for log management but are able do so in a cost-effective and integrated single-solution approach that combines information security expertise with a best-of-breed software for tremendous value,” said Jim Hanlon, CEO, JC Hanlon Consulting, Inc.

The combination of the EventTracker software and JC Hanlon’s consulting services set a new industry benchmark for providing high-value security solutions specifically tailored to the unique requirements of smaller organizations” said Steve Lafferty, VP, Marketing, Prism Microsystems, Inc.

EventTracker enables the centralized collection and consolidation of events from multiple sources across the enterprise for high-speed analysis and reporting. JC Hanlon Consulting brings a wealth of expertise in delivering comprehensive security management services to SMBs. JC Hanlon deploys EventTracker agents and collectors across a company’s IT infrastructure; once collected, events are automatically forwarded to a central Security Operations Center, staffed by security experts from JC Hanlon for further analysis and review.

“We looked at many of the Log Management solutions on the market and were impressed by the flexibility of the EventTracker solution, its high level of scalability and its ability to collect and analyze data in real-time. It has an impressive list of satisfied customers and we are glad to have it on board”adds Hanlon.

Event log management is fast emerging as a new ‘best practice’ imperative for enterprises concerned with security management and compliance. Many smaller companies with modest IT infrastructures, however, are unable to justify the expense of undertaking this responsibility internally and are compromising their security as a result. Through the offerings from JC Hanlon, smaller companies can receive all the benefits of an enterprise grade Log Management solution combined with security and compliance expertise at a price they can afford.
