eIQnetworks, Inc., the only global provider of a unified situational awareness solution, announced a new solution brief that details the capabilities of SecureVue, eIQ's unified situational awareness platform, closely matching Gartner's requirements for situational awareness.
Gartner's John Pescatore and Mark Nicollet recently authored a comprehensive research note (ID# G00214313) highlighting the need for situational awareness by government and commercial organisations for effective threat discovery and risk mitigation.
"The first and only situational awareness platform, eIQ's SecureVue collects, correlates and analyses far more security data than the event-only approach of SIEM," commented John Linkous, eIQnetworks' vice president, chief security and compliance officer. "This solution brief provides valuable insight into how SecureVue's capabilities meet Gartner's recommended requirements for situational awareness. Public and private enterprise across all vertical industries are achieving a more complete, comprehensive and effective level of security and compliance visibility in their fight against APTs and cyber attacks with this approach."
Individual point tools implemented over the last decade have resulted in disparate information silos and simply cannot provide the network visibility required to protect against today's cyber attacks, advanced persistent threats (APTs) and increasing compliance mandates. Obtaining an accurate, timely and coherent view of threats, compliance and risk posture across the enterprise has emerged as the more effective solution. SecureVue is a highly scalable platform that delivers an in-depth view of an organisation's security and compliance posture via a single console.
Detailed in the solution brief, Gartner's specific requirements for situational awareness include SIEM, integration of threat intelligence, asset vulnerability information, network forensics, analysis and correlation and more.
