The combined company will benefit from a stronger presence in the US and European markets, with a portfolio of customers including many Fortune 500 companies, international telcos and numerous government organisations.
These customers use ExaProtect and Solsoft technology to design, deploy and monitor security policies across the IT infrastructure, from existing security systems and products to core business applications and assets.
According to ExaProtect, the merger will deliver a single security dashboard that integrates security event management, policy change management and real-time remediation.
This will benefit customers by simplifying all aspects of enterprise security management by enhancing the response to threats and reducing duplication of investment.
"There is a global shift in IT security towards the use of centralised security monitoring systems, according to Eric Domage, European security expert at analyst firm IDC.
"To defend against external and internal threats, enterprises are changing their approach to security from perimeter-based to [distributed].
"Combined with strong regulatory pressure for better monitoring, this is driving the deployment of more advanced security administration tools.
"As enterprises handle event monitoring and logging on a single security dashboard for management and compliance, they will also want to add active controls for real-time remediation and risk mitigation."
ExaProtect solutions provide scalable security monitoring for complex and diverse IT infrastructures.
By gathering and interpreting security-related events from all security and business systems, ExaProtect's Security Management Solution delivers a unified, real-time dashboard view of the current security status.
Solsoft's multi-vendor security configuration management technology will be integrated into ExaProtect's Security Management Solution.
This will deliver a single-console solution integrating security information event management, policy management and real-time event remediation.
Users will benefit from closer control over corporate security, enhanced response to events and threats, and greatly simplified security policy implementation, compliance and management.
ExaProtect and Solsoft solutions will continue to be available separately.
