AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/13 -- 21CT, a leading provider of investigative analytics and pattern-detection solutions, today announced it has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the "Cool Vendors in Security: Security Intelligence, 2013"(i) report by Gartner Inc. Gartner defines a Cool Vendor as a vendor that offers technologies or solutions that are innovative, impactful and intriguing.

As cyber attacks become increasingly sophisticated, enterprises can no longer rely on perimeter defenses alone. Advanced human-driven attacks are becoming more common, and the most dangerous of these attacks are often undetected and can go unnoticed for months. At the same time, organizations have a plethora of network data at their hands that, if unleashed with investigative analytics and pattern detection, can provide the operational insight security teams are demanding.

"Proactive security analysts are growing in numbers, and they are demanding to be equipped with solutions that help them quickly collect, fuse, visualize and analyze their own data," said Kyle Flaherty, vice president of marketing at 21CT. "Our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner underscores our commitment to providing customers with innovative investigative analytics and pattern-detection solutions that empower security teams with the operational insight needed to identify hidden vulnerabilities, unleash the insight of their current network data and implement an active defense program."

Enterprises, service providers and government organizations are drowning in disparate network data sets that individually provide little insight. Using LYNXeon, organizations collect all network data, including critical alerts and logs generated from perimeter defense solutions, and fuse them together for security analytics and visualization. As a result, network security teams can visualize the interconnected patterns between once disparate information and immediately use that insight to discover never-before-seen incident patterns and detect embedded cyber attackers.
