Actionable Intelligence from Advanced SIEM Systems¬ ¬ ¬ ¬
Date: On Demand
Presenters: Jeremy Conway, Senior Security Analyst, NitroSecurity and Paul D. Vout, 
Director of Cyber Security, LTI DataComm
Replay Now:

To make better, faster security decisions for your organization, you need better 
information faster. Capturing the existing network event, log and flow data already 
provided by your infrastructure with a Security Information and Event Monitoring 
(SIEM) solution is the first key step to better information and intelligence.

However real-time access to and analysis of the mountain of data SIEMs collect is 
needed for SIEMs to be effective threat detection and incident response tools. Detecting 
data breaches, insider leaks and persistent attacks means performing multiple, in-depth 
data dives in seconds or minutes, not hours or days.

Join us for an insider look at how next generation SIEMs can complement existing 
security systems, using their high performance and advanced correlation capabilities to:
‚EURĘ   Quickly view ad-hoc queries
‚EURĘ   Simplify and automate reporting
‚EURĘ   Eliminate the need for database-trained resources

New Technical Guide on SIM has created a new, comprehensive guide to security information 
management and log management.  These expensive and complex tools are becoming 
indispensible in the arsenal of IT security to help with data protection and compliance 
initiatives.  Their experts cover all the angles in order to help with deployments and 
upkeep of these powerful tools.

NitroSecurity and Rapid7 Introduce Industry's First SIEM and Penetration Testing Integration
Pairing of NitroView and Metasploit Pro 4.0 Operationalizes Penetration Testing for More 
Accurate and Timely Enterprise Risk Management

LAS VEGAS, BLACK HAT USA 2011 AND PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - August 2, 2011 - NitroSecurity, Inc., the 
leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management (SIEM) 
solutions and Rapid7¬ģ, the leading provider of security risk intelligence solutions, today 
announced the industry's first enterprise penetration testing and SIEM integration. The pairing 
of NitroSecurity's NitroView with Rapid7's Metasploit¬ģ Pro 4.0 solution - which will be demoed 
in the NitroSecurity booth (#409) at Black Hat USA 2011, August 2-4 - enables security operations 
managers to identify and validate critical vulnerabilities that could lead to a data breach, 
and to prioritize their remediation efforts more effectively.

Metasploit Pro 4.0 addresses the rapidly changing nature of today's threat landscape by 
integrating with more than a dozen vulnerability management and Web application scanners, and 
for the first time, by providing data to NitroView through a documented interface. With security 
operations teams continuously challenged, the need to identify and focus on remediating the 
vulnerabilities that represent the highest risk of exploit is paramount. Metasploit Pro
confirms that exposures reported by vulnerability management solutions exist and verifies whether 
a reported vulnerability is actually exploitable, reducing false positives and identifying issues 
that truly pose a data breach risk. Integrating Metasploit Pro with NitroView enables security 
teams to increase their productivity by spending less time fixing unimportant vulnerabilities 
and having an effective way to verify that remediation was successful.

expectations and requirements, and corresponding services, discounts, benefits and margin 
incentives - including pre- and post-sales support, qualified lead generation and joint 
marketing activities - based on their engagement level.

Online Deal Registration - Partners that identify and register customer opportunities within the 
NitroSecurity Partner Portal are rewarded with guaranteed deal protection and greater discounts to 
help them achieve margin targets. 

Technical Training Programs - Through comprehensive and structured technical training, partners can 
attain "Nitro Certified Partner Engineer" status, accelerate time to deployment and rapidly deliver 
strategic value to their customers.

Monthly Solution Update Sessions - Through use case scenarios including insider threats, fraud

security challenges and tightly integrate SIEM, log management, application data monitoring, database 
activity monitoring and IPS into a single, cost-effective security solution tailored to meet their 
customers' needs.

"The speed and flexibility of NitroSecurity solutions removes the frustrations that many businesses 
experienced with earlier SIEM deployments. With NitroView, security analysts can more rapidly correlate 
log data and efficiently identify and mitigate potential security threats. And NitroSecurity technology 
is backed by world-class support, engineering and sales teams committed to making SIEM successful," 
said Joshua Huston, Founder and Information Security Advisor of Exultium. "Additionally, this strong

Nitro in the News - Data Breaches
Can Data Breaches Kill?
August 12, 2011
By Ericka Chickowski, Contributing Editor
Dark Reading

Data breaches have long threatened the identities of individuals whose data was stolen by pilfering 
cybercriminals. But, in some cases, the breach of sensitive data can put far more than just the credit 
histories of victims at risk. In the right set of circumstances, a data breach can put people's lives 
at risk.

As far as the security community knows, there has been no documented case where breached private 
details have proved fatal. But the recent exposure of sensitive information held by more than 70 
different U.S. law enforcement agencies by Anonymous provides a perfect example of the type of 
information that could put a breach victim's life at risk.

The group nabbed and made public the personal information of hundreds of law enforcement officers via 
BitTorrent, as well as the names and information of police informants for many of the departments hit 
in the attack.

"Just knowing the name of a person within a secret organization or relationship can be life-threatening 
for them," says Mel Shakir, CTO of NitroSecurity. "As organizations start looking at these incidents, 
they'll start to understand the implications of even employee information being stolen."
