ArcSight is a leading provider of security and compliance management solutions that intelligently identify and mitigate business risk for enterprises, MSSPs and government agencies. Designed with the needs of highly complex, geographically dispersed and heterogeneous business and technology infrastructures in mind, ArcSight provides the industry’s only vendor-neutral solution for intelligent identification, prioritization and network response to external security attacks, insider threats and compliance breaches.

Much like a “mission control center,” ArcSight’s award-winning ESM solution intelligently collects and distills millions of enterprise-wide events down to the most critical information necessary for organizations to make informed decisions to protect their businesses. It does this through an open platform which integrates hundreds of point/individual security and networking products to find risks that would otherwise go undetected, and inherently enhances the business value of point technology investments.

The resulting real time and historic view across heterogeneous infrastructures, augmented by ArcSight’s complementary solutions for high performance log management - ArcSight Logger, network configuration management - ArcSight NCM and threat response management - ArcSight TRM, offers the industry’s only complete solution suite with a closed-loop process for addressing both security and compliance requirements.
