Evaluators highlight EventTracker as a very capable SIEM with a wealth of analysis features, intuitive GUI and comprehensive functionality

Columbia, MD – Prism Microsystems, a leading provider of comprehensive SIEM solutions for midsize enterprises, today announced that SC Magazine, a leading global IT security publication, has awarded EventTracker 5 out of 5 stars, in a product review featured in the August issue of the magazine.

EventTracker was rated across six categories – features, ease of use, performance, documentation, support and value for money – and received high scores in each. Evaluators noted that “[EventTracker] combines features that are found in other groups, as well as SIEM capability…[It] not only can provide SIEM functions, such as log monitoring, collection and analysis, but also USB device monitoring, system change management and automatic remediation by taking action to shut down or restart systems or services based on policy.”

The review also highlighted EventTracker’s ease of installation, wealth of analysis features and well-organized and intuitive GUI, referring to it as “a very capable SIEM.”

“We have invested a lot of research and development effort into making EventTracker the most intuitive SIEM solution in the market,” said A.N. Ananth, CEO, Prism Microsystems. “Its powerful analysis capabilities allow users to quickly detect critical threats to their IT environments, without needing them to write complex correlation rules or understand attack patterns. We are honored by this recognition from SC Magazine and view it as yet another confirmation of our commitment to bring more intelligence to the SIEM experience.”

The SC Magazine rating follows on the heels of rave reviews by Redmond Magazine, which awarded EventTracker a score of 9.6 out of 10 in a product roundup where it beat solutions from IBM, BMC and CA to take top honors. In early 2010, Ovum group, a leading analyst firm, praised EventTracker’s robust offering in an in-depth technical review that stated that “in consolidating log management, event management and resolution, and compliance management features, and in covering technical aspects such as remediation and USB-related functions, EventTracker is broad in scope compared with many of its competitors.”
