ArcSight positioned in leaders quadrant of Gartner Inc.'s Magic Quadrant

{pp}ArcSight recently announced that Gartner Inc. has positioned it in the leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management. ArcSight is a leading global provider of compliance and security management solutions and is represented locally by Blue Turtle Technologies.

Gartner positions companies in the Magic Quadrant based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to the Magic Quadrant report, “The SIEM Leaders quadrant is comprised of vendors that have been the most successful in building an installed base and revenue stream within the SIEM market, have a relatively high viability rating (due to SIEM revenue or SIEM revenue in combination with revenue from other sources), and provide products that are a good functional match to general market requirements.”

Martyn Healy, Marketing Director, Blue Turtle says, “It’s great that Gartner has once again recognised ArcSight as a market leader. It shows ArcSight’s dedication to arm our customers with the defensive awareness they need to protect their business. Our customers tell us that attacks, threats and compliance requirements are increasing. They require real-time awareness of all cyber threats and risks occurring throughout the organisation, and we are seeing this in the increasing success of ArcSight in the South African market. ”

The ArcSight SIEM Platform is an integrated set of products for collecting, analyzing and managing enterprise event information. These products, that can be purchased and deployed separately or together, depending on organization size and needs, include software and appliances for Event Collection, Log Management, Event Management, Compliance Automation and Identity Monitoring. The ArcSight SIEM Platform includes ArcSight Logger, ArcSight ESM, ArcSight Connectors, ArcSight Threat Response Manager (TRM), ArcSight Compliance Insight Packages, and ArcSight IdentityView.
