May 13, 2008 (10:05 AM EDT)


ATLANTA, May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- SecureWorks(R), one of the market's leading Security as a Service providers, announces a new service - Security Information Management (SIM) On-Demand(TM) ( http://www.secureworks.com/services/simondemand ) - that will revolutionize how organizations manage security information, meet regulatory requirements and demonstrate compliance with PCI, SOX, GLBA, FFIEC, HIPAA, NERC CIP and other regulations. SecureWorks' new SIM On-Demand is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering that provides the first sustainable solution for collecting and analyzing logs and alerts from security devices and information assets in real time without having to install and manage SIM software or hardware. Unlike traditional SIM product offerings, SecureWorks clients also have instant access to certified security experts at SecureWorks' Security Operations Center for 24x7x365 support should they have any questions.

"Having a SIM solution with no deployment headaches or infrastructure to manage gives organizations a valuable option that significantly improves security for their organization in an easy-to-use, efficient manner," said Mike Cote, president & CEO at SecureWorks. "SIM On-Demand lets our clients be users of SIM technology without having to be SIM managers."

SIM On-Demand enables organizations to easily meet and exceed regulatory requirements for log monitoring and review. SIM On-Demand also simplifies demonstrating compliance to board members, management and examiners with powerful, user-friendly reporting. "Our SIM lets clients painlessly generate comprehensive reports that are aligned with regulatory requirements and guidelines, delivering them on-demand in a straightforward format that doesn't require hours of human data filtering," explained Cote.

Powered by SecureWorks' Sherlock(TM) Security Management Platform, SIM On-Demand consolidates security data from across client organizations and performs advanced correlation and analysis in real time, transforming log and event data into actionable information. Supporting log and event data from a wide array of sources such as intrusion detection and prevention systems, firewalls and anti-virus as well as servers, routers, applications and other IT assets, SIM On-Demand alerts clients to potentially malicious activity so they can appropriately address threats and reduce risk.

To counter malicious activity by external hackers and trusted insiders, SIM On-Demand is constantly updated with new correlation rules and intelligence gained from monitoring the networks of over 2,000 SecureWorks clients and developed by SecureWorks' Counter Threat Unit(TM) research team.

"This innovative new approach to Security Information Management makes it easy for organizations to improve their security and monitor their log data and alerts. It also gives clients flexibility to upgrade to our full breadth of services and have all of their devices - or just a select few - monitored or managed 24x7 by our certified security experts," said Cote.
