netForensics, Inc., a ”visionary” leader in the Information Security Management (http://www.netforensics.com/solutions/security/) market, today announced that Rackspace® Hosting (NYSE: RAX), the world’s leader and specialist in hosting, has selected netForensics’ log management (http://www.netforensics.com/solutions/logmanagement/) platform, nFX Log One, to enable Rackspace to expand its services portfolio by offering to its hosted customers new log management, monitoring and compliance reporting services. Through this relationship, Rackspace is delivering to its customers a new, market-unique security and event log management solution to specifically address Payment Card Industry Data Security Services (PCI-DSS) (http://www.netforensics.com/solutions/pci/) compliance requirements.

With a deep level of understanding into the MSP sector, netForensics enables MSPs to create and deliver compelling and highly effective security packages around threat management and compliance. MSPs like Rackspace can deliver significant value to customers by providing products around SIM, compliance, database activity monitoring, and log management—all high-demand solutions.

netForensics' nFX Log One enables Rackspace customers to demonstrate, via detailed reporting, that end-user event information residing on a specific server(s) is being monitored and adheres to PCI standards. Additionally, netForensics has the ability to scale and support the planned growth of Rackspace's multi-customer, heterogeneous environment.

"We strive to implement solutions that not only meet our customers' security and compliance requirements, but that are also easy for our support teams to deploy and manage," said Bret Piatt, Product Manager, Rackspace Hosting. "netForensics has a long track record of supporting Managed Service Providers (http://www.netforensics.com/solutions/mssp/), so they understand the intrinsic demands and challenges we face on a daily basis. Backed by the netForensics solution, we are confident that when our customers are audited with nFX Log One in place, they have a log management system capable of providing the reports and audit trail documentation needed. We look forward to a long-term and mutually beneficial relationship with netForensics."

netForensics is uniquely positioned to help MSPs address the growing market opportunities before them with the nFX One (http://www.netforensics.com/products/) suite of security compliance management products. This suite enables MSPs to create and deliver new products around security information and event management, log management and database activity monitoring. By partnering with netForensics, MSPs can effectively monitor the largest, global organizations down to the small "mom and pop" operations with the same reliable, consistent level of high performance, while providing the same quality level of service to all customer organizations.

Regardless of the number of customers an MSP might have or their variance in sizes, the nFX One suite of solutions scales by easily distributing technology on the customer site without deploying any hardware.
