NetIQ Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Leading Industry Analyst Firm's Security Information and Event Management Magic Quadrant

2007 Security Information and Event Management Report Evaluates Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

Press Release


NetIQ Corporation, an Attachmate business, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant in the '1Q07 Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Magic Quadrant¹ report.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant report evaluates vendors on their ability to execute, as well as their completeness of vision. The overall viability, sales execution and pricing, SIEM installed base size, growth rate and revenue stream, and effectiveness of the product in customer production and test environments illustrates the vendors' ability to execute. In parallel, completeness of vision is determined by capabilities that are required for the Security Information Management and Security Event Management use cases, capabilities that are specifically required for either SIM or SEM, and capabilities that are required for regulatory compliance monitoring and reporting.

"We are proud to be named in the Leaders Quadrant in the Security Information and Event Management Magic Quadrant, particularly in light of ever-changing market demands," said Chris Pick, vice president of Products and Marketing, NetIQ. "As strong as we are today with Security Manager 5.6™, we look forward to our June release of 6.0, which will simplify log management as well as extend current host and application change monitoring capabilities to bolster our market leadership."

NetIQ® Security Manager provides superior data protection for the enterprise, delivering integrated security information and event management with intelligent host monitoring. By combining change auditing, access control monitoring and log analysis capabilities, NetIQ Security Manager offers protection against both inadvertent and malicious threats that can negatively impact the security of valuable corporate information.

By implementing NetIQ Security Manager, users can reduce the time and effort required to meet compliance requirements and identify, track and resolve security threats.
