Somerset, NJ (PRWEB) March 18, 2015
Lumeta Corporation, the leader in network situational awareness, today announced that its Lumeta ESI (Enterprise Situational Intelligence) software has been selected as a finalist in the Best Vulnerability Management Solution category of SC Awards Europe 2015.
Lumeta ESI provides real-time network situational awareness which enhances the continuous cyber security and protective monitoring programs advocated by industry initiatives – SANS and CESG Good Practice Guide 13 (GPG13), for example.
The best run enterprise networks, even those with an established vulnerability management program, typically exhibit a 20% gap in network understanding and visibility. As a result there exists unknown address space in use, unmanaged assets/devices, potential leak paths that can be used for data exfiltration, and myriad other network anomalies and vulnerabilities. In order for a Security Operations Center to effectively respond to cyber threats, it needs to be working from a holistic view of the network. Lumeta ESI identifies the unknown – gaining comprehensive network intelligence on every connection, device and leak path across the enterprise –and closes the network visibility gap.
The mission of the SC Awards Europe is to honor the achievements of information security professionals striving to safeguard critical data in the UK and Europe and to acknowledge companies with innovative security technologies that help protect today’s organizations from ever-changing cybersecurity threats.
Competitors for all categories are voted on by a panel of judges comprised of independent and objective information security industry leaders that are chosen and invited to participate by members of SC Magazine UK’s editorial team. These judges come from end-user companies, the analyst and consulting communities, and academia. Many are practicing and former chief security officers from the private and public sectors.
“We’re honored to be named a finalist of this coveted security award,” said Pat Donnellan, chief executive officer at Lumeta. “Recognition of Lumeta ESI reinforces that network situational awareness is a key component of vulnerability management, and our traction in the marketplace speaks to the initiative companies and government agencies are taking to secure their networks and the important assets residing on those networks.”
Winners of this year's SC Awards Europe will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in London on 2nd June, 2015.
