San Mateo, Calif. – June 19, 2012 – AlienVault, provider of the only Unified Security Management™ platform that fully integrates over 30 of the best open source security tools and continuous threat intelligence for visibility across any IT environment, announced today that is has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the 2012 “Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.” The company, which has seen significant growth early in 2012 along with the appointment of a seasoned new executive team and funding from Trident Capital, was recognized for its unified security management solution and its Open Threat Exchange (OTX). The report, written by analysts Mark Nicolett and Kelly Kavanagh, was published on May 24, 2012.
“We’re excited to see Gartner recognize us,” said Roger Thornton, AlienVault Chief Technology Officer. “Our vision is to create an open and collaborative security paradigm, a total shift from today’s closed, proprietary and expensive systems. Our Unified Security Management platform exemplifies the benefits of this vision, providing unprecedented security visibility and defense capabilities by bringing together best-in-breed open source tools and the power of shared intelligence. Gartner appropriately named us a “visionary”, and we look forward to working our way into the Leaders quadrant by delivering on our vision and providing enterprises of all types and sizes with a cost-effective alternative to traditional SIEM solutions.”
For its Magic Quadrant reports, Gartner assesses companies on both their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Based on OSSIM, the leading open source SIEM, AlienVault’s Unified Security Management platform offers five essential security capabilities built-in, including asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence.
