COLUMBIA, Md.— Feb. 1, 2017EventTracker today announced that its security information and event management (SIEM) platform received a Platinum ranking for Best SIEM Solution in American Security Today’s 2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards.

American Security Today’s comprehensive Homeland Security Awards Program was organized to recognize the most distinguished vendors of physical, IT, port security, law enforcement, and first responders, as well as federal, state, county and municipal government agencies in acknowledgment of their outstanding efforts to ‘Keep Our Nation Safe – One City at a Time.’

EventTracker’s industry-leading platform provides network and system administrators with early threat detection, operational awareness and the ability to demonstrate compliance with industry regulations and internal security policies. Features include SIEM, intrusion detection, vulnerability scanning, threat intelligence, and HoneyNet deception technology, implemented either on-premises or in the cloud.

Through its managed detection and response (MDR) capabilities, the platform provides continuous monitoring for cyberthreats. The technology collects data from a variety of sources—platform, application and network logs, alerts from intrusion detection systems (IDS) and vulnerability scans. Threat intelligence from a rich ecosystem of global and community sources is merged along with customized honeypots for local data, to rapidly identify threats and enable investigation and response.

“The ‘ASTORS’ awards choose solutions aimed at addressing the evolving homeland security threat landscape. EventTracker SIEM does just that by collating millions of security and log events and providing actionable results in dynamic dashboards so administrators can pinpoint indicators of a compromise. It is an essential line of defense against cyberthreats and preventing breaches into government and military systems,” said A.N. Ananth, CEO of EventTracker. “American Security Today has more than 70,000 readers in the homeland security space, and we are honored that our SIEM technology is being recognized by such a distinguished group.”
