BEDFORD, Mass., April 5, 2012 - 

RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) today announced that its RSA NetWitness® technology received Gold-level honors in the Network Security category of Security Products' "Govies" Government Security Awards, which recognize outstanding products that address security challenges in the government market.

Designed to presenta complete record of everything that is occurring across the network, RSA NetWitness technology provides actionable security intelligence to government agencies. This security monitoring platform is engineered to eliminate network blind spots by combining continuous capture and context-based understanding of reconstructed network traffic as well as logging and telemetry from customer environments. Comprising a suite of analytic tools and applications, the RSA NetWitness solution leverages real-time threat intelligence to deliver an unmatched level of network visibility and knowledge to detect and investigate advanced threats proactively.

Enabling a meta-view of an organization's global network, RSA NetWitness technology is engineered to increase the value derived from existing technology investments and enhance the responsiveness of IT in addressing security events, conducting forensic research and responding to regulatory compliance requirements. This meta-view leads to a smarter and more efficient response team and significantly shortens the window of risk from an attack. Unlike point solutions requiring an appliance for every new threat, RSA NetWitness technology provides a single platform for the detection of emerging adversaries and advanced zero-day threats.

"RSA is honored to be recognized by Security Products magazine [as the best Network Security solution] among many deserving products," said Jaci Vilardo, Vice President, Federal Sales, RSA. "With attack methodologies and exploit frameworks continuing to evolve at unprecedented rates, complete network visibility and real-time analytics are paramount.
