platform to ensure that we are continuously monitoring the security posture of
our information technology resources, while measuring the effectiveness of our
compliance with security policy and Federal regulations."

predefined, security process, ensuring that Security Information Management
goes beyond gathering information to enable issue resolution. It enables
customers to gather high volumes of security information and intelligently
interpret the meaning and importance of the data in order to take action.
netForensics' unique methodology to perform security posture analysis enables
security analysts to not only monitor and respond to their company's overall
security threat score in real time but also, through multi-dimensional
correlation of threats, vulnerabilities and predetermined asset values, to

real-time, intuitive platform makes threats easy to identify and supplies all
the integrated tools needed to stop and prevent them.

Department, like other Federal government agencies that netForensics is
