PISCATAWAY, N.J., Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackStratus, a leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance technology tailored for both SMBs and large enterprises, announced today that it has been positioned in Gartner, Inc.'s 2016 Magic Quadrant for SIEM for a 3rd year. The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (1), is an annual report where the analyst firm evaluates venders using several criteria.
"One of the early pioneers in the SIEM market BlackStratus is once again recognized in Gartner's Magic Quadrant," said Dale Cline, CEO of BlackStratus. "We believe our inclusion in the report again underscores the contribution BlackStratus is making to the advancement of SIEM technology. We also feel it highlights our growing customer base that is using our enterprise class security and compliance platforms, including our new CYBERShark SaaS offering to handle the increased sophistication of existential threats to their network."
BlackStratus was also included in a separate report from Gartner, titled "Critical Capabilities for Security Incident and Event Management Report," (August 2016) where the analyst firm scores vendors in three areas: basic security monitoring, advanced threat detection, and forensics and incident response.
"Earlier this year we took the SIEM market in a new direction with the launch of CYBERShark, the first white-label, cost-efficient, cloud-based SIEM platform specifically tailored for small to midsize businesses," said Rich Murphy, Vice President of Engineering of BlackStratus. "As a white-label offering, CYBERShark allows MSPs to seamlessly integrate and brand the platform into their portfolio of technologies."
