SANTA CLARA, Calif. – August 19, 2015 – AccelOps, the provider of actionable security intelligence for the modern data center, today announced that it has been included in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).

  • Gartner’s definition of the Security Information and Event Management market: The SIEM market is defined by the customer’s need to apply security analytics to event data in real time for the early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches, and to collect, store, analyze and report on log data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance. Vendors included in the Magic Quadrant analysis have technologies that have been designed for this purpose and are actively marketed and sold to the security-buying center.

    AccelOps provides software to monitor security, performance and compliance with a single-pane-of-glass view of cloud and on premise network infrastructures including:

  • Visual analysis for actionable insights: Analyzes past and current behavior of systems to learn trends on data inflow, understand and predict performance, leverage knowledge and plan for action. Security and network performance monitoring is communicated via rich, visual, interactive bubble charts, pie charts, heat maps and geo maps. 
  • Scalability: The Accelops virtual appliance scales to process billions of events and petabytes of data using 300 built-in rules and 1,700 pre-defined and customizable reports, providing IT professionals with a single tool that monitors anomaly detection and management of network equipment across data centers and cloud resources.
  • Real-time functionality:Patented analytics engine sends real-time alerts when deviations occur that indicate a security or performance-impacting event. Featuring full log aggregation, real-time event correlation and online data retention with rules and reports mapped to more than 12 compliance standards including SOX, HIPAA, COBIT, GPG13 and PCI DSS. It also aligns with 17 of the SANS Top 20 Critical Security Controls. 

Tom Kelly, CEO, AccelOps, said: “With all of the network’s complexity and the advanced threats poised to strike, integrating the network operation center with the security operation center is table stakes for effective identification of threats and immediate remediation.  AccelOps is proud to be included in the list of 13 vendors who met Gartner’s requirements for the 2015 SIEM Magic Quadrant, and we look forward to serving this market with continued innovation and exceptional customer care.”
