VigilantMinds Selects Coral8 for Complex Event Processing

Coral8 Engine to Bring Real-Time Processing to Enterprise Security Monitoring Services

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Coral8, Inc., a leading provider of Complex Event Processing (CEP) software, today announced that VigilantMinds Inc., a global provider of information security services and solutions, has selected the Coral8 Engine for real-time event processing functionality within its SecureXone(TM) Security Information Portal, an integrated package of managed information security services. VigilantMinds selected Coral8's CEP software for its speed of development, and the combination of flexibility and real-time performance it adds to their software infrastructure in analyzing complex IT network, system and software security data and events.

Enterprise security is a mounting concern across all industries, and is becoming increasingly difficult to manage in-house. VigilantMinds' security experts develop customized solutions for customers to make key enterprise information security decisions, predict and control security threats, maintain business continuity and reduce the complexity of regulatory compliance.

VigilantMinds is using the Coral8 Engine for real-time processing and analysis of the high-volume security data and event streams received from client networks, which include system logs, network devices, intrusion detection systems and firewalls. The application service infrastructure processes data from thousands of security end-points, generating hundreds of millions of security events daily. Coral8's continuous queries analyze this data in real-time, identifying complex security and compliance events that are sent to key personnel for immediate action, and are stored by VigilantMinds for later auditing or analysis by clients.

VigilantMinds evaluated a number of options including rules engines and open source products. The Coral8 software was selected for two key reasons:

* The Coral8 Engine provided the rich semantics and high-throughput to analyze large streams of data on a sliding, continuous basis using time as a key element rather than the iterative analysis offered by other tools,

* The complete package the Coral8 Engine offered superior long-term manageability and cost of ownership benefits as compared to other alternatives.

"We were looking for a flexible CEP platform with rapid development, swift modification, easy operation and long-term scalability so we could focus on delivering exceptional information security service," said Don Gray, CTO, VigilantMinds. "Coral8 will speed our service delivery and give us a cost- effective, scalable solution for VigilantMinds to implement best-fit security solutions to our customers."

"Security service providers face difficult challenges in building solutions that can keep pace with the customer infrastructure changes and the new threats and regulations that are continually emerging," said Terry Cunningham, CEO of Coral8. "We've designed the Coral8 Engine to allow companies such as VigilantMinds to deliver powerful, flexible and cost- effective solutions that can deal with complex, high volume event streams."
