PISCATAWAY, N.J., April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, netForensics, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based security information and event management (SIEM) software solutions, announced that it has changed its name to BlackStratus, Inc.
Moving forward under the name BlackStratus, the company will continue its mission to provide industry leading SIEM and logging solutions to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) partners and customers worldwide that detect, prevent, and defend network IT assets from real time CyberSecurity breaches. BlackStratus will continue to apply its 13 years of expertise to provide actionable security intelligence to organizations of all sizes in order to address the increasing and more challenging security issues created by the recent explosive growth in cloud computing, mobile devices, and social media.
"As the magnitude of CyberSecurity breaches and damage has increased, we have evolved our business to meet those challenges. In the past, our solutions were focused solely on securing an individual organization's assets from attack through the delivery of point product solutions. In today's environment however, we have adapted to our customers and partners increasing need for Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS) solutions that allow rapid and effective delivery through the cloud. As a result of the change in the nature and requirements of our business, we concluded that a new name and brand identity was the logical next step. This change reflects our continued evolution and our team's passion for developing industry leading SIEM and SECaaS solutions for our partners and customers," said Dale Cline, CEO. "The name BlackStratus expresses what we strive to be as an organization — a highly focused dynamic leader that transcends the boundaries of traditional on-premise solutions with innovative products that rapidly and dramatically improve security for organizations while leveraging the power of cloud computing to reduce the cost and complexity of maintaining a SIEM infrastructure."
BlackStratus is a leading provider of cloud-based security information and event management (SIEM) software solutions deployed and operated by ''Security as a Service'' (SECaaS) providers of all sizes, government agencies and individual enterprises. Our SIM One technology is used by organizations worldwide to detect, prevent and defend against both major and minor IT security breaches from the end point to the data center, to the ''Cloud.'' The SIM One technology delivers a correlated and centralized, real-time view of alerts, status messages and a variety of security events generated by disparate third-party security products (such as firewalls, anti-virus products, intrusion detection software, etc.), allowing security professionals to identify and stop potential threats in real time. Specifically, our technology allows our SECaaS partners to sell multiple types of cloud-based security services to their customers, including security event analysis and notifications about real-time threats to the customer's IT infrastructure, in addition to providing continuous and secure logging of all of their customer's security event data for compliance and audit purposes. Further, our own direct enterprise and government customers deploy our technology within their own private clouds for multiple location and agency use, or deploy it within their individual data centers for use by their security operations team.
