Integration Established to Enhance Timely and Effective Network Incident Response Capabilities for the Department of Homeland Security ( FAIRFAX, Virginia - May 9, 2006 ) ManTech International Corporation (Nasdaq:MANT), a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions focused on mission-critical national security programs for the Intelligence Community; the Departments of Defense, State, Homeland Security, and Justice; the Space Community; and other U.S. federal government customers, announced today that it has integrated its NetWitness product with Sentinel 5 from e-Security, a leading supplier of security information management and continuous compliance monitoring solutions. This integration will give customers the ability to quickly and definitively determine the intent, magnitude, and risk of network security events by leveraging NetWitness' breakthrough methods of network forensic analysis and Sentinel's award-winning capabilities to monitor, correlate, remediate, and report on security and compliance events. The Department of Homeland Security will be the first customer to utilize the combined offering. "The combination of e-Security's security information management technology and NetWitness' network forensics analysis represents a logical step in the evolution of an enterprise's security infrastructure," said Nick Lantuh, Vice President of Strategic Development, NetWitness Products, ManTech International Corporation. "e-Security's ability to automate event identification, correlation, and remediation, combined with NetWitness' ability to provide definitive risk determination through detailed forensic analysis, provides our customers with a profound understanding of the intent and magnitude of their security events. As a common customer, the Department of Homeland Security was influential in driving the integration and creating optimal visibility into their network traffic by leveraging and enhancing existing security infrastructure." "NetWitness is a natural extension of e-Security's security information management solution," said Dave Capuano, Vice President of Product Management for e-Security, Inc. "Sentinel collects and correlates disparate event data from throughout the network, analyzes the data in real-time, and manages incident response, automating and formalizing the process of tracking, escalating and responding to incidents and violations. NetWitness' leading network forensics capabilities makes the event analysis and incident response process more effective by delivering more detailed data on events and incidents across the network, enabling customers to identify and manage risk quickly and effectively." NetWitness is an in-depth network forensics product that makes the incident response processes more effective while adding value to existing network security infrastructure. NetWitness is designed from the ground up to rapidly analyze and model complex network traffic, not simply monitor it, enabling a profound understanding of the magnitude and intent of network events.
