McAfee Named a Leader in 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM

By on Jun 25, 2012

Following our acquisition of NitroSecurity last year, we have been working towards fully integrating their Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technology into our portfolio of solutions. McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (the fruit of our combined efforts) recently received a 5-star rating from SC Magazine, and now we are proud to announce that McAfee has been named a leader in the 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM.

Our Strengths

Gartner’s research evaluates leading vendors who offer solutions in the SIEM marketplace based on ability to execute and completeness of vision. This includes key criteria such as the customers’ need to analyze security event data in real-time for internal and external threat management, and to collect, store, analyze, and report on log data for regulatory compliance and forensics.

We believe our position in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant illustrates how McAfee Enterprise Security Manager is really taking performance, value and strength to the next level, as at its core, our SIEM offerings are all about our unique commitment to security connected. Our ability to integrate with other key security solutions in order to deliver an autonomous and adaptive security risk management platform is one asset that sets us apart, and we’re excited to continue our innovations in this space alongside our integration partners.

But don’t take our word for it. According to SC Magazine’s 5-star review, from its powerful correlation engine to its intuitive management interface, McAfee ESM provides security event management and analysis along with forensic capability that is easy to deploy for almost any size environment.

The 2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM:

Later this year, we’ll be releasing version 9.1 of our Enterprise Security Manager, which will include the integration of threat intelligence from McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, risk data from McAfee Risk Advisor, and asset data from McAfee Vulnerability Manager and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator.
