ExaProtect, the market leader in core security event management, has announced it will merge with Solsoft, the leading provider of security policy management solutions. The merger will see ExaProtect integrating Solsoft technology into its solutions.
ExaProtect is the leader in core security event management (CSEM). Its solutions give scalable and comprehensive security monitoring for complex, diverse IT infrastructures. By gathering and interpreting security-related events from all security and business systems, SMS delivers a unified, correlated, real-time dashboard view of the current security status to senior IT staff. It can collect, analyse and archive security audit logs in core systems such as SAP, Oracle and Siebel, as well as traditional security systems.
Solsoft’s multi-vendor, security configuration management technology will be integrated into ExaProtect’s Security Management Solution (SMS). This will deliver the first single-console solution to integrate security information event management, policy management and real-time event remediation. Users will benefit from closer control over corporate security, enhanced response to events and threats, and greatly simplified security policy implementation, compliance and management. ExaProtect and Solsoft solutions will also continue to be available separately.
The combined company will benefit from a stronger presence in both US and European markets, with a portfolio of customers including many Fortune 500 companies, international telecommunication companies and numerous government organisations. These customers use ExaProtect and Solsoft technology to design, deploy and monitor security policies across their IT infrastructure, from existing security systems and products to core business applications and assets.
According to ExaProtect, the merger will deliver a single security dashboard that integrates security event management, policy change management and real-time remediation. This will benefit customers by greatly simplifying all aspects of enterprise security management, by enhancing the response to threats and reducing duplication of investment. The move will also benefit integrators and partners, creating new sales opportunities with a unique solution proposition.
