RSA(R) Recognized As A Leader In 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant For Security Information And Event Management

Security information and event management (SIEM) tools were originally intended for compliance and log management. Over time, SIEM tools became the aggregation point for large volumes of security data and intelligence, and organizations deployed SIEMs to detect and investigate attacks with limited success. Log-centric SIEMs made it difficult to detect and investigate today’s complex threats in a timely manner because they did not provide full visibility across an enterprise.

The RSA NetWitness Platform is an evolved SIEM – the centerpiece of an intelligent Security Operations Center (SOC) — that provides end-to-end visibility across an organization’s digital ecosystem that spans networks, transactions, applications, identities and user behaviors. Engineered to immediately detect high-risk threats on devices, in the cloud and across your virtual enterprise, RSA NetWitness Platform also optimizes security response processes to reduce attacker dwell time and make analysts more efficient and effective.

Dell Technology (RSA)’s position as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is based on the company’s completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to Gartner, “The SIEM Leaders quadrant is composed of vendors that provide products that are a strong functional match to general market requirements and have been the most successful in building an installed base and revenue stream within the SIEM market. Leaders also have a relatively high viability rating (due to SIEM revenue, or SIEM revenue in combination with revenue from other sources). In addition to providing technology that is a good match to current customer requirements, Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for emerging and anticipated requirements. They typically have relatively high market share and/or strong revenue growth and have demonstrated positive customer feedback for effective SIEM capabilities and related service and support.”

*RSA was acquired by Dell Technologies; as such, the report positions it as “Dell Technologies (RSA)” to reflect the acquisition.
