ACTON, Mass. and Cambridge, Mass. -- eIQnetworks®, Inc., a global provider of next-generation security information management (SIM) solutions, and Mazu Networks, the leading[1] provider of Network Behavior Analysis (NBA) systems, today announced a technology partnership to integrate Mazu with the eIQ SecureVue™ security, risk and compliance platform. The integration of a full function NBA and SIM solution will provide enterprises with improved visibility of network activity and the ability to more effectively monitor, identify and remediate network operations and security threats.

“Unlike solutions that deliver NBA and SIM functionality from a single platform, Mazu uses strategic partnerships to combine its best-of-breed NBA system with leading SIM providers such as eIQ,” said Phil Hochmuth, senior analyst, Yankee Group. “By integrating pure play NBA and SIM solutions, enterprises gain the best combined functionality for alerting on or mitigating network operations and security threats.”

Mazu provides continuous global visibility into how users, applications, hosts and devices behave on a network, delivering information on how current activity differs from typical behavior. Users immediately understand who is talking to whom, what applications and services are running, where the traffic is flowing and if there are any meaningful changes that indicate a network issue, security threat or application problem. Through the integration, Mazu’s network traffic intelligence will be correlated with log, vulnerability, configuration, asset and performance data presented by eIQ’s SecureVue platform. This allows network and security analysts to obtain contextual information around an event or alert, dramatically improving their ability to identify, isolate and remediate any potential network operations or security threats across the enterprise.

“Current solutions on the market today that claim NBA/SIM capabilities are delivering a weak version of both technologies,” said Paul Brady, CEO, Mazu Networks. “Through the eIQ and Mazu partnership, enterprises finally have access to a best-of-breed solution that provides strong and targeted NBA and SIM capabilities.”
