NetWitness Expands Offerings to Support Cloud and Virtualized IT Service Models

NetWitness Corporation announced the immediate availability of its product portfolio in cloud-based offerings. Released to meet expanding operational use cases for cloud-based services and transformational virtual data center architectures, this addition to the NetWitness network monitoring platform provides unparalleled deployment flexibility and scalability across all operating environments.

"The very essence of how businesses across all market sectors use information technology is being transformed and challenged by cloud computing," said Jim Reavis, executive director of the Cloud Security Alliance. "Although this rapid adoption creates enormous business opportunity, it also introduces new areas of considerable risk that all organizations must manage appropriately.  In the realm of cloud security it is imperative to know everything about what's happening on the network and obtain timely and complete answers to any potential security questions that may arise."

"With virtualization and cloud computing, the IT organization's loss of 'command and control' requires security teams to place greater emphasis on comprehensive network monitoring, precise and real-time threat detection, and actionable intelligence," said Eddie Schwartz, chief security officer for NetWitness. "The introduction of cloud-based offerings of our infrastructure and analytic applications provides deployment flexibility to enterprise customers by delivering the detailed visibility they need into advanced threats and sophisticated attacks, previously only available with our appliances." 

"Data security, whether in a virtualized or cloud computing environment, is at the forefront of every CIO's decision-making process," said Christopher Day, chief security architect and senior vice president of secure information services for Terremark. "The unique analytics and threat intelligence provided by NetWitness is an important part of the range of managed security services offered to our company's cloud computing and virtualized hosting customers, and we're excited to offer our customers a flexible solution that matches the platform's powerful ability to mitigate risk."
