SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- nCircle, the leader in
 appliance-based vulnerability management solutions, announced today a
 strategic alliance with netForensics, Inc., the recognized leader in Security
 Information Management (SIM). nCircle's enterprise class vulnerability
 management system combined with netForensics' industry leading SIM solution
 precisely correlates vulnerability and threat data in real-time, enabling
 customers to focus on the most critical threats and shorten the time to

 time brings together proactive security information about network
 vulnerabilities with reactive security event information from multiple devices
 and systems.  The combined netForensics and nCircle solution prioritizes
 security incidents with accurate context and eliminates false positives that
 have plagued reactive security products.  By applying vulnerability context to
 security events as they occur, security managers are now able to isolate the
 true threats to their networks and manage and prioritize remediation actions
 with greater effectiveness.

SC Magazine 2011: netForensics Cinxi One
Thursday, May 05th, 2011 | Author:

The nFX Cinxi One appliance from netForensics provides powerful tools to manage and correlate logs for real-time threat analysis and identification. This product includes the ability to use an on-board correlation engine that automatically analyzes events and identifies potential patterns of attack while filtering out possible false positives and prioritizing the most critical events.

We found this tool to be fairly straightforward to set up and configure. The initial install takes just a few minutes and can be done either by connecting a monitor and keyboard to the appliance or by hooking in through an SSH terminal on another computer. After connecting to the appliance, a short setup wizard defines the steps to set network and IP settings, and the appliance is ready to be connected to the network. From here, the rest of the configuration is done via the client application, which can be launched from any network computer. We also found the client application to be easy to navigate and quite intuitive to use.

USAID Uses netForensics SIM Solution to Collect and Correlate Security

Events From Different Vendors Technologies to Help Measure

Agency’s Overall Risk and Security Posture

EDISON, N.J., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- (RSA Security Conference) --
 netForensics, Inc., the pioneer and recognized market leader in Security
 Information Management (SIM), today announced that the United States Agency
 for International Development (USAID) is the recipient of SC Magazine's Best
 Security Implementation of the Year award.  The SC Magazine Awards highlight
 and showcase the best products, services and professionals in the information
 security industry.  SC Magazine had over 1,300 nominations for its 2006 Global
 Awards show.
     The nomination highlighted USAID's use of the nFX Open Security Platform
 (nFX OSP), to collect and correlate security events from different vendors
 technologies and help measure the organizations overall risk and security
 posture.  In a 2005 testimony (April 7) before the House Committee on
 Government Reform on the status of Federal Agencies implementation of FISMA,
 John Streufert, Acting CIO of USAID noted that SIM played a critical role in
 its achieving the only A+ on the annual Federal Computer Security Report Card.
     In the April 7 testimony, Streufert stated, "Even though we have reduced
 our network-based vulnerabilities, we understand that security is a moving
 target. We cannot mitigate all the risks any more than we can stamp out all
 the possible vulnerabilities. Network threats exist. To combat this reality,
 we have deployed a global network of security devices that transmit security
 event information to a central collection, correlation, and reporting system
 called a Security Information Management system (SIM)."
     "This SIM collects suspicious security events and anomalies from hundreds
 of security devices and firewalls deployed throughout the enterprise. By
 collecting all our security events in the SIM database, we are able to
 correlate events across all disparate security device types within the
 enterprise, a powerful and critical tool when managing incident response on a
 global network.  With daily reviews and active monitoring, we can identify and
 quickly respond to new information technology security threats and virus
 attacks. The technology also supports our incident reporting to US-CERT at the
 Department of Homeland Security, which provides important information to the
 rest of the federal community."
     "We applaud USAID's effort and determination for ensuring their worldwide
 organization is protected and fully meets the government's FISMA
 requirements," said Dennis Cline, President of netForensics.  "The scalability
 of nFX OSP enables netForensics to help address the decision support and
 process automation demands of today's enterprises such as USAID which has over
 70 offices worldwide.  Our solution solves core SIM problems such as threat
 identification, event correlation, and incident response, while providing a
 foundation for broader enterprise security and compliance solutions."

 demands of the largest enterprises, addressing a wide range of external and
 internal security threats while maintaining business continuity. It
 constructs a system-wide view of the entire network, auto-learning host
 behaviors to determine who talks to whom, and how. Using this data in
 conjunction with real-time security information Arbor Peakflow X generates
 actionable insight, allowing IT organizations to:
       * Gain unmatched network visibility
       * Stop known and emerging threats such as distributed denial of service
         (DDoS) attacks, viruses, botnet army attacks and worm outbreaks
