Columbia, MD – Prism Microsystems, a leading provider of SIEM solutions to the midsize enterprise market, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner in the recently published ‘Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management, 1Q08’ report.

Gartner evaluates vendors based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision and places them in the Magic Quadrant accordingly. “In my opinion, our addition to the Magic Quadrant is a recognition of our commitment to midsize enterprises that have all the technical, regulatory and security challenges of larger enterprises but lack the resources to address these challenges efficiently” said Steve Lafferty, VP of Marketing at Prism Microsystems Inc. “Prism’s SIEM solution, EventTracker, is optimized for the midsize market and offers a powerful combination of real-time log management, security event management, change management and compliance reporting in one solution.”

According to the Magic Quadrant report, “An optimal solution will support the real-time collection and analysis of log data from host systems, security devices and network devices; will support long-term storage and reporting; will not require extensive customization; and will be easy to support and maintain.” Gartner, ‘Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management, 1Q08,’ May 2008, Mark Nicolett, Kelly M. Kavanagh.

With one of the largest customer bases in the SIEM market, EventTracker has continually delivered ahead-of-the curve innovations that directly address evolving market requirements.
