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

2009 Report Evaluates Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

Press Release


NetIQ Corporation, an Attachmate business, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned NetIQ in the Leaders Quadrant in the 2009 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) report¹.

Gartner's 2009 Magic Quadrant report for SIEM "evaluates technology providers with respect to the most common technology selection scenario—a SIEM project that is funded to solve a compliance reporting issue, but with secondary requirements for effective threat monitoring and security event management (SEM). There are numerous variations in SIEM product architecture and deployment options, and wide variation in capabilities for log management, SEM and user monitoring."

"We believe our positioning in the Leaders Quadrant for the SIEM Magic Quadrant further validates how NetIQ continues to evolve its products to meet organizations' ever-increasing requirements for comprehensive SIEM solutions," said Geoff Webb, senior manager of Product Marketing at NetIQ. "By integrating traditional SIEM functionality with the file integrity and change detection already required by compliance mandates, organizations are best able to streamline their security programs, protect critical data and improve their overall security posture."

NetIQ® Security Manager™ arms customers with superior data protection for their environment—comprising security event management, privileged user management, and host log analysis in one console. The integrated, scalable architecture of NetIQ Security Manager uniquely satisfies numerous enterprise compliance mandates while enabling the automation of security activity reviews, log preservation, change auditing and incident response.
