FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Quest and Intellitactics Offer New Model for Security as a Service

Quest Expands Managed Security Services Menu with On Premise Intellitactics SAFE Featuring the Control of Ownership Without the Overhead

Sacramento, CA and Reston, VA: June 16, 2009 — Quest, a mainstay of the Top VAR 500, and Intellitactics, a leading provider of appliances and software for enterprise security management, announced an agreement that features Intellitactics SAFE enabling a menu of new managed security services from Quest. Under this agreement Quest will offer security as a service in multiple models: a traditional model where Quest will collect logs, store and analyze them and then send reports and updates to the Client; a new model where Quest will locate the Intellitactics SAFE appliance on the Client’s premise and provide remote expertise to monitor logs and analyze security events for compliance and threat management. Backed by their redundant operation centers and SAS 70 Type II certification, Quest has been offering industry best practices Managed Services to every market vertical for over ten years. Intellitactics SAFE, winner of the 2009 Best Security Event Management Award, is a fully capable security information and event management appliance for log management, compliance reporting, threat detection and incident investigation.

Tim Burke, Quest’s CEO and President believes that customers are finding themselves in a position where they don’t have budget, expertise or time to maintain optimal operational security. Their resources are stretched as they face the challenges of responding to security events, maintaining compliance across multiple regulatory standards and meeting the needs of auditors and executives concerned with security. As a result they are turning to companies like Quest who have both the expertise and the ability to provide them with these solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Michael Cerick, Intellitactics VP Strategic Alliances, said that Quest had all the right credentials for launching this new service model. "This is one great decision for the customer. One decision puts two powerful resources to work for them — Quest brings exceptional experience in providing security as a service and they’ve selected the SAFE appliance to do it with."

According to Peter Marston, Account Manager and Quest’s SIEM Product Specialist, Intellitactics SAFE appliance allows Quest to manage multiple clients from a single pane of glass regardless of where the security data collection resides; at any of Quest’s nine data centers or on premise at the client location. Additionally, the appliance is an optimal product to enable this new Managed Service model. It offers simplicity of deployment, ability to collect logs from anything located anywhere without intrusive agents, a dashboard which Quest can configure and share with clients to provide status on compliance or user access or network security posture — strengthening relationship and collaborating in the event of a security incident.

Intellitactics SIEM solutions are used by many Tier 1 MSSPs around the world. These MSSPs provide services to thousands of companies and government agencies that choose managed services for log management, event management and a variety of other services. Intellitactics recently announced a new product for MSSPs called Intellitactics ClientVue MSSP. The ClientVue MSSP dashboard displays dynamic reports enabling MSSPs to strengthen relationships with their Clients while reducing the overhead associated with answering frequent inquiries.
