    Top Analyst Firm Positions EM RSA Security Division in Leaders Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management

    Evaluation Based on RSA enVision® Platfor' Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

    BEDFORD, Mass. - May 12, 2008 -

    RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC), today announced that it is positioned in the Leaders quadrant within Gartner's Q12008 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). This positioning is based on RSA’s ability to execute and completeness of vision. It appears in the May 8, 2008 report by Mark Nicolett and Kelly M. Kavanagh entitled, ”Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management, Q12008.”

    According to Gartner, “The SIEM market is driven by customer needs to analyze security event data in real time (for threat management, primarily focused on network events) and to analyze and report on log data (for security policy compliance monitoring, primarily focused on host and application events).”

    The RSA enVision Platform is designed to give organizations a single, integrated 3-in-1 log management solution for simplifying compliance; enhancing security and risk mitigation; and optimizing IT and network operations through the automated collection, analysis, alerting, auditing, reporting and secure storage of all logs. More than 1200 customers have selected the RSA enVision® platform. Of those customers, more than 600 signed deals to deploy the RSA enVision platform between September 2006, when EMC acquired Network Intelligence, and May 9, 2008.

    “We are proud that the report from Gartner positioned RSA in the Leaders quadrant in this market,” said John Worrall, vice president and general manager, Information & Event Management Group, RSA. “This recognition is especially rewarding in the context of conversations we’re having with customers.  They are demanding cost-effective solutions, integrated security suites, and fewer, strategic suppliers.  We’re happy to be recognized by Gartner and we believe that this recognition is based on our offering a SIEM solution that meets the diverse needs of compliance, security, and IT & network operations personnel within a single product.”
