PORTSMOUTH, N.H., April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management (SIEM) solutions, today announced that Sonus Networks (Nasdaq: SONS) has selected the company's integrated NitroView SIEM and Log Management solutions to bolster its already comprehensive real-time security strategy, and to enhance support for its Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) compliance program.
Sonus, a public company since 1999, is a leading provider of voice and data infrastructure solutions, including softswitch and session border control products for service providers and large enterprises. The company's infrastructure solutions allow efficient and reliable delivery of voice and multimedia sessions over IP networks while allowing customers to manage session flows in their networks by using business policies. Sonus has deployed its IP-based network solutions at hundreds of enterprise and service provider organizations, including five of the world's six largest carriers. With customers in more than 50 countries, Sonus technology is behind nearly 40 percent of all IP-voice traffic worldwide - more than 50 billion minutes every month.
Although Sonus already had a comprehensive security infrastructure in place, the company wanted to improve its defenses against the constantly evolving threat landscape by seeking event and log management capabilities that were more actionable and accurate than its current solutions. The company embarked on an effort to replace its existing log management platform with a high-performance, scalable security solution that could perform granular searches and correlate security events in real-time.
During the evaluation process, NitroView's industry-leading database performance, ease of use and effective correlation capabilities quickly differentiated it from competitive offerings. After only a few short weeks, Sonus quickly determined NitroSecurity was its SIEM partner of choice. Its products integrated easily into Sonus' existing infrastructure and migrated seamlessly to new equipment during a recent network upgrade, reaffirming their selection.
"NitroView has an unparalleled reputation as a vanguard in SIEM technology, and that reputation was validated by our trusted solution provider partner," said Craig Hanrahan, Senior Manager of Infrastructure and Security at Sonus Networks. "NitroView proved right out of the gate that it could quickly enhance our security infrastructure significantly - as well as consolidate control for greater operational efficiencies. A single user can rapidly analyze, troubleshoot and diagnose any potential events - before they impact the business - helping our IT organization to operate more effectively and efficiently."
The NitroView SIEM solution, comprising NitroView ESM and NitroView ELM, offers users a "single pane of glass" interface for an unprecedented, unified workflow of all SIEM and log management functions for real-time analytics, rapid event correlation and prompt incidence response. Additionally, as a public company, Sonus values NitroView's auditing and reporting capabilities.
"With NitroView's deep SIEM and log management integration, we can quickly reconcile new employee hires and terminations - a key requirement of SOX compliance," continued Hanrahan. "Audit and report requests that used to require hours or days to fulfill, now take mere minutes."
Hanrahan is also impressed with NitroSecurity's new NitroView Virtual Receivers for local, cost-effective event collection, which effectively support broad, distributed enterprise deployments and are particularly well-suited for companies like Sonus that have a significant international presence.
"The explosion of new mobile platforms and consumer devices has created tremendous global growth opportunities for innovators like Sonus," said Ken Levine, CEO of NitroSecurity. "Sonus solutions serve as the foundation for next-generation infrastructures, and NitroSecurity is proud to be providing the company with advanced, scalable security and compliance solutions for their rapidly-growing worldwide corporate infrastructure."
