May 16, 2011, 10:00 ET from Blackbird Group, Inc.

ATLANTA, May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at Microsoft's Tech Ed North America 2011 conference, the Blackbird Group unveiled the Blackbird event vault, the newest module in the Blackbird Management Suite, the world's first truly integrated and complete solution for identity and data governance lifecycle management. Already a leader in the market, event vault adds new capabilities to Blackbird Management Suite's real-time auditing, monitoring, compliance reporting, and recovery for Windows Active Directory and Windows File System.

Designed for Windows 2000 through Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, Blackbird event vault leverages the Blackbird architecture and UI for scalable collection, centralized storage, and customizable views, which permits advanced analysis of event log data and easier, verifiable, compliance.

"Windows event log entries are notoriously difficult to collect, store, and analyze. However, regulatory mandates like SOX, PCI, and others require exactly that," said Christian Ehrenthal, CEO at Blackbird Group. "Blackbird event vault not only automates the capture and management of event log entries, but it also integrates directly with our centralized data governance console to provide unparalleled visibility for administrators, auditors and security professionals."

The Blackbird Management Suite, which was first introduced at Tech-ed 2009, powerfully and seamlessly guides administrators through the entire identity and access lifecycle. It helps enterprises effectively deal with internal security initiatives and regulatory compliance requirements. It's unique integrated approach simplifies compliance and management tasks, including real-time reporting and access entitlement management, by consolidating them into a single dashboard UI.

The Blackbird Group will be demonstrating the entire Blackbird Management Suite, including the new Blackbird event vault, at Booth 340 of the Microsoft Tech Ed North America 2011 conference from May 16 through 19 in Atlanta, Georgia.
