ClearPoint Metrics and Lumeta Partner to Integrate Security Data and Network Discovery

March 30, 2009

Integration Produces Unique Joint Offering for Global Network Visibility

BURLINGTON, Mass. and SOMERSET, N.J., March 30 /PRNewswire/ — ClearPoint Metrics and Lumeta Corporation today announced a partnership that integrates Lumeta’s IPsonar(R) with ClearPoint Metrics’ Security Performance Manager(TM). Security Performance Manager fuses data from an organization’s infrastructure tools into a consistent, understandable dashboard for measurement, monitoring, and communication of the state, business impact, and effectiveness of information security initiatives. IPsonar discovers and maps all assets on a network. The combination of these two solutions gives IT a complete security assessment of its entire network, including assets that, previously, would have remained unknown and unmanaged.

Lumeta’s IPsonar provides global network visibility to those entrusted with managing their IT networks. Using multi-protocol discovery technology, IT managers can create a comprehensive set of network facts, including complete asset identification, leak detection, and address space discovery. This comprehensive view enables IT managers to optimize vulnerability management while enhancing the value of existing IT assets.

ClearPoint Metrics delivers a purpose-built solution for CIO’s and CISO’s and allows their organizations to implement enterprise IT and information security metrics programs. ClearPoint’s portfolio of adapters provides connections to a large number of critical security and business applications, including threat managers, anti-virus, incident managers, intrusion detection and prevention, identity and access managers, asset managers, network/system managers, vulnerability scanners, and vulnerability and patch managers.

“This strategic partnership with Lumeta came about through our mutual work with a global financial services organization,” said Jim Acquaviva, CEO at ClearPoint Metrics. “We look forward to working with them on other major customer initiatives.”

“ClearPoint’s Security Performance Manager’s metrics simplify information from security and infrastructure systems, and when combined with IPsonar’s leading network discovery capabilities, customers get a powerful, global view of the state of their security infrastructure,” said Michael Markulec, chief operating officer at Lumeta. “As security threats continue to mount, gaining a complete understanding of the network and its vulnerabilities — and being able to prioritize those vulnerabilities — needs to be a top priority for large IT organizations.”
